I enjoyed my spaghetti and meatballs the other night. Just wanted a simple late dinner and googled spaghetti and meatballs (cravings for the evening) and Ruffino's was on the list. My dinner was excellent and the meatballs were without a doubt the freshest (nice and light) and best that I have had in the DC Metro area. My server was excellent. I will return again.
Always good, chicken parm is excellent with nice crispy edges (a must). Mozzarella sticks are tasty. My only wish would be to make the marinara sauce less sweet!
The restaurant was excellent. The staff did an amazing job. The food was great. We had no complaints and would dine here again if we ever there.
Wonderful Italian food. Great pasta.
Good servings and reasonable prices
It was a slow night, but the food was great and the staff was attentive. Had been meaning to try it a while, and glad we did.
I am shocked at the OpenTable ratings for this restaurant. There is no ambiance and the food is not good. I'm surprised that this restaurant can even stay in business with the quality of the food they serve. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it was clearly not very fresh (it had the rubbery consistency of old frozen calamari). We also ordered the fried mozzarella sticks which were no better than you can get in the frozen section of your local grocery store. Then our dinner came: veal piccatta was doused with garlic and the veal was of very poor quality (my teens couldn't even eat it); gnocchi was clearly from a bag; and the shrimp in my fettuccine was bland and rubbery. We will not be returning and I would not recommend this restaurant to anybody unless all you want to do is sit at the bar and drink.
Excellent food; it came on time and our waiter was very attentive. Certainly, we will come back.
Old fashioned neighborhood Italian restaurant. Fairly priced, good service, traditional food. Nothing trendy or fancy. Family friendly.
Our little neighborhood gem - nothing fancy, but everything done right. Warm, friendly and prompt service, with a classic (mostly southern) Italian menu. It's a small place, so definitely make reservations!
Good service. Decent food. Great value.
