Ravello is usually our favorite BYOB and we have always come away raving about the food and the experience. This time we were eager to enjoy dinner with friends we hadn’t seen in several months. As usual, the specials sounded wonderful. One member of our party had the Veal Saltimbocca special and two of us had the haddock and risotto special. All of those dishes were excellent and surpassed our expectations. However, my husband ordered his usual Veal Parmesan and it was terrible. This is the first time I have ever seen him send food back to the kitchen. The sauce tasted burned. The dish was promptly replaced with the haddock and risotto special and it was superb.
For Ravello, this is very unusual. Although this was disappointing, I believe that anyone can have a bad day. We will be back soon and look forward to a return to the delicious meals we have come to look forward to at Ravello.
Everyone I go there with agrees they’ve never had calamari taste better than their sweet and spicy calamari appetizer!
We were sitted right away. Our server went over the specials for the day. She gave us time to make our decision. We had the meatballs that were seasoned just right and soft hard that is a problem sometime . Portions were large. We shared the ricotta cheesecake was light and airing. Will visit again
Outstanding food as always! Very creative and delicious!
Said it before, say it again. This is the best restaurant around. The only negative is now more people know and tough to get a table last minute. The food is always great. The servers are always friendly and really know the menu and the specials.
Out of town family members celebrating a birthday. Food as amazing (as always)
Always a great meal at Ravello. Wish it was not so hard to get a reservation, would be here more often.
Great food, wonderful service. Will definitely be back!
We went to Ravello for an adult date night out during spring break. The restaurant is cozy and clean and the wait staff was very attentive and polite. The prices were on the high side of average but being BYOB offset that and then some. The menu was a bit limited but there were a ton of specials that all sounded great. The bread was amazing and we split a ceasar salad which was more than enough for a starter. The salad was good with chopped tomatoes and croutons, however, it was a bit overdressed I ordered a chicken and pasta special that was incredible. However, my husband ordered a veal dish that was just ok, the veal was not pounded thin enough and was swimming in sauce and way too much spinach. If we return we will most likely stick to the specials.
We enjoyed Easter dinner @ Toscano with our party of 5. We loved Bordentown's restaurant, so we thought we'd give it a try. We all enjoyed appetizers which were outstanding. Caesar salad, calamari, tuna tar tar, arugula salad w/ goat cheese & candied cashews. Delish! We had a corner table. Place is very clean, the view out the windows is of parked cars, so better to keep the blinds closed. Inside is somewhat stark. Entrees were delightful. Veal parm over gnocchi, pasta with short rib sauce, scallop & shrimp special over ravioli, grouper special w/ clams & calamari. Love the BYOB to keep costs down. Service was very good; management stopped by & checked in. Look forward to dining again!
Ravello's is excellent! It's BYOB, the food is delicious, and the portions are huge. Such great food and service!
First time dining at Ravello and was not disappointed. There with a party of 10 for a birthday. Everyone enjoyed their meals and service was outstanding.
THE SERVER WAS NICE BUT THE ENTREES WERE POISON. THE VEAL PARMESAN ACTUALLY TASTED SOUR
WOULD NEVER GO BACK OR EAT THERE, EVEN THOUGH THE CALAMARI APPETIZER WAS PASSABLE
We love Ravello’s and have been here a number of times. The food is just wonderful. I frequently will have the Ahi Tune special, which is usually different every time and always outstanding! Our friends had the Grouper Francaise and 16oz. NY strip steak which earned raves! We also had the grilled octopus appetizer and was equally happy with the delicious flavors.
My one complaint is that this restaurant has horrible ventilation. Whether it’s lunch or dinner, I always come home just stinking of the smell of fried/cooked food. This is not a pleasant smell.
I wonder if they are lacking a decent exhaust fan. It is such a bummer that a place that makes such consistently delicious food can’t figure out an effective way to vent their grill and fryer properly so their diners don’t smell like they were standing over a fryer. Come on Ravello’s invest in some proper ventilation for your kitchen and dining area so your patrons don’t smell like they work your kitchen!
Very creative chef specials along with an interesting daily menu. The extra touched of garlic & parm bread drizzled with olive oil are part of the special touches this place provides.
Excellent food and service. Great experience. Highly recommend.
This is BY FAR the most amazing restaurant. The food... service.... I love this place. I am excited to go out to eat again. I am a very very picky eater and Chef Dom is amazing. Danielle and Paulina take care of us like we are family. I can’t say enough about Ravellos it’s just absolutely amazing. Thank you again for such a wonderful dinning experience
Excellent as usual.
Food is exceptional and service is always great .
We enjoy going to Revellos and always have a great meal .
Highly recommend the restaurant!
Celebrated my birthday with friends. The evening was exceptional! Everyone's food was delicious. I would recommend but make sure to make a reserving the place gets packed.
Have been wanting to go back but always booked ... didn't disappoint - excellent food!
We have dined at Ravello on numerous occasions and we have always had delicious meals and exceptional service! The calamari and the meatballs are amazing appetizers and for our main entrees, the salmon and the pork chop were incredible. I'm sure everything on the menu is great!
Went to Ravello for a birthday dinner for my father in law. Four of us total. Made a reservation and was seated immediately. Service is very good. Many specials to choose from as well as the regular menu. Food is excellent. Reasonably priced. Will visit again soon.
Second time we dined at Ravellos the experience tonight was not very good. The waitress was not very attentive one of our meals (veal ) was so bad it was returned to the kitchen. Our cake dessert was cold and dry. No need to go back. The experience was not very good.
Alas, we have been to R by T about half a dozen times and have always found the food outstanding. THEN we had dinner there this week with friends. I was delighted when I saw my favorite dish from past meals there - the veal chop. What we were served was a veal porterhouse, not the traditional chop. Furthermore it was over-cooked and very tough. Friends who ordered it finally gave up trying to eat the porterhouse they had ordered based on my recommendation of the chop. "This is just too tough to eat." We had all ordered the chop medium rare. My husband ordered a pasta with sausage dish. He said it was tasteless. Have they changed chefs? Was it just an anomaly?
Our dinner this past Sunday was outstanding! The Tuna over Edamame Dumplings was a special I hope they will do again soon. My husband had the Pork Chop and loved it. Our server, Emily, was fantastic! Can't wait to go back.
Celebrated my 34th birthday here. It was outstanding!
The food here is always beautifully prepared, professionally served and delightful to look at.
Always changing specials makes it fun to go as much as possible. I don’t understand how he does it, there isn’t a place even close. Best food around. Servers know and love the food. See you soon!
great place to meet up and meet with friends. The fish taco's excellent the bread amazing the staff super nice
All good! Service and food excellent. Time to expand dining area
Great restaurant. Waitress was spot on, I don’t remember her name but she had long blonde hair. This place never disappoints. Chicken parm on left and Scallops over Ravioli which was a special.
We celebrated my wife's birthday and thoroughly enjoyed the meal of veal parm and chicken/shrimp.
Food is awesome and reasonably priced. BYO so that's a big thumbs up!
Chopped antipasti was outstanding. Tuna special, Veal Saltimbocca & Chicken Salvatore were all delicious!
A bit overpriced
Food was excellent! We were disappointed the hostess would not let us move our table to one in the corner as opposed to the middle of the room. She said it was a four top. We didn’t argue the point. When we left the table was still empty. Our romantic dinner was not so much right in the middle of the restaurant.
It was our first time to try Ravellos, and we'll definitely go back again.
great food, innovative menu, well prepared food. Ambience is simple. However there was a lot pod smoke from the cooking area coming into the dining area. Would go back again though.
Fantastic BYOB, with exceptionally good food. Menu is a cut above most BYOB's in the area, reservations are recommended!
