Simply the best Pappardelle Bolognese anywhere. And the focaccia dipped in olive oil is to die for. Rovezzi's is our go-to place. Never disappoints.

Rovezzi's never lets you down. The food, service and quality was absolutely perfect. We will definitely return and recommend to others. The entire experience could not have been better. We highly recommend this restaurant to all. It's also worth the drive and you will not be disappointed!

We have enjoyed Rovezzis many times. This time however was not so wonderful. We are in second floor but prefer downstairs. Lighting too bright. Music was exceptionally loud but singer was great! Enjoyed the songs he sang but again loud.
Our waiter was a nice young man but way too attentive if that's possible. Although he stated he was not rushing us, he was. He meant well but we did not need to be informed about the status of each course therefore we did not have a chance to enjoy our cocktails , apps came quickly and then dinner before we finished apps! I hate to sound ungrateful and petty but it was not the experience we usually have there.
It also would be nice to have a vegetarian soup choice.
Food was good and we do love coming there so we will try again!
Thank you.

THe food and service is almost always outstanding. The bread, oil and cheese is out of this could fill up just on that if not careful.

We had eaten there before and had good memories of the experiences. This time around none of the four of us was happy with the quality of the food. Especially, since the prices are those of a higher quality establishment.

A friend and I went to Rovezzi's recently to enjoy a much needed quiet dinner. We were greeted warmly at the front desk and immediately seated at our private table ( as requested on Open Table). We were treated like VIP's and our waitress could not have been nicer nor more professional. Our food was top notch , with tender sirloin steaks, juicy meatballs and " marvelous mashed". We found the burrata and spinach salad to be a bit bland with not enough dressing but the cheese was outstanding and every bite was gone quickly. We each had a homemade dessert, lemon curd tart and piping hot apple crisp. Everything was executed perfectly and we both felt refreshed and revitalized after such a wonderful meal.

Fantastic food & exceptional service! It was my husbands birthday and he had never been there before, they put us upstairs in the corner which was perfect & romantic, had never been upstairs before and our waitress Chelsie , was right on the ball! Everyone there was so nice and very professional and helped to make it a great 54th birthday for my husband! Thank You Rovezzi's !!!

Rovezzi's is our go to place that never disappoints for special occasions. After enjoying a glass of wine at the bar we were promptly seated at a quiet corner table complete with an anniversary card signed by the staff. Our waitress greeted us and went over the menu and the evening specials. You must try the brussel sprout salad! We both chose the salmon which was cooked to perfection and accompanied by different and delicious selection of vegetables. It's quite obvious the owner/chef takes great pride in his restaurant. Highly recommended!

Excellent cuisine. Noise level was on the loud side in the 2nd floor main dining area. With that said, still worth going for the food and outstanding service.

The portions were small,considering the price
The noise level was very annoying
Have had much better Bolognese dish at two other places
Just was not as great as we expected. Feeling of some of our people who had been here previously was that it had changed in a negative way.

This was my 2nd favorite rest. in the world. It was a speciel occasion or a want to impress rest. The quality of the food has decreased significantly. Everything else was as i remembered and expected. The filet was tough and tasteless and the clams and shrimp with linguine was dry, cold and the shimp was very tough. I already recom. this place to a friend. I hope he isn't as disappointed as i was. It was a sad evening as i took friends there to impress them. They weren't nor was my wife and i.

Restaurant is our go to place whenever we are near. The table was ready for us when we arrived. Our waiter was extremely plesant, engaged and helpful. Food was incredible and delicious. Bread so good, oil and cheese wonderful, tomatoes and basil so fresh, entre was fresh homemade pasta with wonderful lobster ricotta. Wine a perfect compliment. All around enjoyable meal.

We decided to go for a special occasion and we had a great meal and fabulous service. Our only complaint, and I hate calling it that is that my fiance's first draft beer tasted off. The situation was quickly remedied and we appreciated the effort of our server to make us completely happy. The food was fantastic! And we will definitely be back!
