I'm not sure if the A/C was broken, but it was very warm in the restaurant on Friday night. Also we were sitting next to a large party so it was difficult to hear the conversation at our table.
Otherwise the experience was very good, as always.

For our entrees, the wife had the chicken and shrimp ravello while I went for the Veal Osso Bucco Canneloni. The ravello was delicious, with ample amounts of perfectly prepared jumbo shrimp and chicken served over it. My wife did find the chorizo a bit too spicy for her liking by the end of the dish. The Canneloni, or the "Italian burrito" as my wife referred to it, was fantastic. The pasta itself was perfect, and the filling was delicious, put the flavor mushroom ragu really put this dish over the top for me. I'm not sure how they packed that much mushroom flavor into the sauce, but bravo.
For desert I opted for a frozen lemon custard that was on the specials menu while my wife opted for the pasticcera.di frutta. Both were delicious and bright, not too heavy and the perfect end to a delicious meal.
Ravello is a true diamond in the rough. You'd hardly pay it any mind as you drove past it. Even still, it was packed when I was there on a Friday evening, meaning there must be plenty of word of mouth to keep the tables filled. The fact that it's a BYOB helps keep the final tab a bit more reasonable as well. So don't let the humble appearance and surroundings fool you, Ravello by Toscano is the real deal, and every bit as worthy of your patronage as it's more famous Bordentown namesake.

The food is outstanding.
As a special appetizer we had stuffed zucchini flowers which were excellent.
The pasta was al dente, and the steak was perfect.
The salmon was not dry and the veal Milanese was perfect.
Will go again soon.

Delicious dinner to celebrate my wife’s birthday with our family. We loved everything. My father is a huge oyster fan and really loved these. Everyone enjoyed the meatball, calamari, and Caesar salad appetizers. I’d highly recommend the eggplant stack — it was amazing. Dinners did not disappoint. Our favorite was the short rib tagliatelle. The pappardelle with sausage was delicious too. Beyond the food, the service also made for a great evening. We look forward to coming back soon.

We have been going to Ravello’s almost since it’s opening. We have never had a meal we did not love. Someone in our family will always order the tuna. The minuet sauces for the oysters are phenomenal. Calamari with chili sauce and the flatbread never disappoints. Salads are extremely delicious. The main courses are so good it is hard to choose. The steak and pork chops never disappoint. Only problem is that over the years it has gotten very hard to get in on a Saturday. I wish they would expand.

Had a wonderful dinner here and found the menu to be interesting but easy to choose from--not too complex! All courses of our meals were very good, food was fresh, although my fish was first undercooked and had to be sent back but it was fixed quickly. Would definitely go back.

Overall, great food! Wish they had a liquor license--didn't realize it was BYOB. A great glass of red would have really complemented my short ribs and tagliatelle--but they were delicious anyway!

The meal at Ravello by Toscano is excellent. We've been a few times and have not been disappointed. The one down side is that the service can be slow.

The restaurant was extremely hot to point where it was extremely uncomfortable. Food was good, but they need to do something about keeping the place much cooler in the summertime. They have an open kitchen with a fire going in the pizza oven that gives off extensive heat that just makes the place uncomfortable.

Ravello by Toscano is one of the Best Restaurants in the area! The homemade pasta dishes and the specials are just amazing! We really love the muscles app, and the homemade lobster ravioli, sooooo delish! Dominick is a great chef and just keeps getting better with his creations! We try to stop in at least once a month! And it's BYOB!

We are never disappointed in the food here...ample portions and creative dishes, along with some old standards...BYOB makes it a very affordable dining experience...service is excellent, staff is super friendly...Pork chops never disappoint, nor do the steak specials...must haves would be the mussels with chorizo!!! The 14 oz. veal chop served over the white bean soup is incredible...Great place, you must try!

Wow what a find! I’m reluctant to post this review... but this restaurant deserves it so deference must be paid. All four of us were thrilled with our choices. Local, pleasant service, a bit of a drive for us, but worth it.
Love love their take on a “traditional” Caesar salad! And the Cacio de Pepe, a seemingly simple dish, is divine. They also had squash blossoms that night as an appetizer. A bit too sweet for my palate but so pretty and elegant. Hard to find even in season. Def coming back. BYOB.

This was the second time we dined at Ravello, and we had excellent experiences both times. The food was great, and the portions were so generous that everyone, except my 21 year old son, had to ask for a take home box. The bread and olives were also a hit.
