Went for lunch. Two tables finishing and we were the only table (later two more tables of two came in). The waiter was flying around frantically for seemingly no reason. It was not busy. Took him awhile to come to our table to take our order. There were three of us. I said that we were going to share a couple of dishes: a soup and then a pasta dish. 20-25 minutes later, BOTH dishes come out. I asked him to take the soup back and hold it until we were done with the pasta. Perhaps I should have told him to course it or perhaps he could've asked me. Anyway, he never once checked on us throughout the meal. That said (of course you remember the service, good or bad), the food was delicious. Had the tagliatelle with short ribs and then the pasta fagioli. Would get both again. Haven't been here in awhile and I will return because of the food. My service philosophy is that the slower and less crowded a restaurant is, the worse the service is. This again proved true. However, I will return and hope the service is better.

This was a return visit but our first on a busy Saturday night. Outstanding food concepts and preparation. The wait and bus staff were well trained and professional. This is a quality restaurant in a local setting. Prices are suitable for portion size and quality ingredients. The mussel appetizer is great. The cod was from the shore fresh and delicious. A coveted reservation.

Lives up to the Toscano name. The place is great for foodies and you will certainly not leave hungry because portions are very generous. They rarely have steak on the menu but it has always been a special and their steaks are the same as they serve at Toscano's in Bordentown so don't miss the beef! BYOB is very nice as well. Highly recommended!

Appetizer and bread where very good . The dinner tagatelle with ragu tasted crunchy and had a weird spice . I got sick on the chicken PARM / very acidic / dessert flourless cake was terrible a total waste of money

Our first visit to Ravello was a huge success. The food was wonderful. The Shrimp and Chicken Ravello was excellent. The portions are large. The freshness of the ingredients is obvious. The prices are quite moderate, considering the quality of the food. We will definitely return to try other choices on the menu.

Definitely one of our top choices for Italian food, with truly killer Mama’s Meatballs and Chicken Parmesan, my personal bellwether for judging the quality of an Italian restaurant. This latest visit lived up to our already lofty expectations, and we continue to return and enjoy their offerings.

This was our first visit, and we’ll be back! A warm welcome and warm ambiance were immediate pluses. From salad shared to meatballs and lasagne, our litmus tests!, all was delicious. Our server was great and we enjoyed our time dining.

We arrived on time for our reservation. The hostess, a tall, thin, blond woman, did not even acknowledge us or speak to us. She just picked up 2 menus and showed us to our table, which was the worst table in the restaurant. It was right by the door and next to the servers' station. Every 5-10 minutes, a waiter was right behind my husband's chair, entering orders into the computer. I asked to be moved to a different table, but she said she only had tables for 4. The restaurant was very cold; I had my coat on the entire meal.

We ordered the chopped antipasto which was saturated with dressing, making the greens very limp. My husband had the chicken soup which was very bland. We added parmesan cheese which helped a bit. I had the chicken parm. It was a large portion, but the chicken was rubbery.

The service was terrible. We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes for our entrée. Another table that was seated 30 minutes after us was served their entrées immediately after us. The waiter apologized for the wait, but once he served the entrees, he never came back to check on us. We did not bother with dessert, since I was cold, and we did not want to wait any longer.

This was a complete waste of $82. Heed my advice, and do not go to this restaurant.

after having been to Toscano, I expected their other restaurant, Ravello, to be a excellent.
But it was not.
The music was too loud. It felt and was a strip mall restaurant.
The waiter was not pleased with adjusting the food to dietary needs. Charged extra.
The plates were being cleared before we were all finished eating, A huge no, no in my book.
I would rather go to Toscano

What a fabulous meal! Food was excellent and the service matched it! The four of us enjoyed everything. The pork chop special was outstanding. The chopped antipasta was one of the best I ever had. The short rib egg rolls are a treat. The desserts are worth the calories!

Food quality the best in the area. BYOB works well. Servers efficient and friendly. Noise level can be high - don’t expect intimate dining experience. Ambiance nothing special. Chef superb with offerings ever-changing. Highly recommend.

The food was outstanding. We had the mussels with chorizo for an appetizer. It was fabulous. It tasted like it had been simmering all day. I had chicken ravello for my main entree. It was delicious, very flavorful and tender. My husband had cace e Pepe. He has this every time we eat at Ravello. While he said it was very good, he was disappointed that they added spinach in the dish. It never had it before, not was it stated in the menu that it had spinach. We feel that all ingredient should be listed in the menu. It drives me crazy when restaurants just add items to their standard dishes without stating it. We will definitely return, it is our favorite special occasion restaurant. Although, the prices are quite reasonable, I don’t feel you need a special occasion to eat here.

My husband and I traveled 45 minutes to try out this restaurant. It was well worth the trip! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I believe that small touches go a long way when it comes to dining. Instead of throwing dry bread into a basket, this restaurant makes a delicious light garlic toast. We shared the Italian antipasto salad which was dressed perfectly. I had a special of sesame encrusted ahi tuna which was amazing! My husband had the short rib pappardelle which he loved. We will be making the trip many more times.
