I have been here before and never had a problem! Nothing was ever note worthy but this time the service was slow; it was a Monday night and only a few tables were full. Asked for no anchovies on Caesar salad- got anchovies. Asked Steak medium rare- it was well done . We were disappointed in the entire meal.

The duck is reliably tasty, meatballs are excellent, octopus (an appetizer) perfectly cooked and very delicious. Too busy for us Friday and Saturday, otherwise a great nearby place for a tasty dinner.

The service was inconsistent and not well trained at all although her attitude was good. The menu misrepresented the dishes in terms of properly describing them. As our meal continued it became obvious that the staff did not have vonrrol

Waiter needed help
They bring glass of wine to my wife as I am still waiting for my cocktail
( and it took another 5 minutes to get mine) and asks “are you ready to order “
SERIOUSLY??

When I first arrived, I had no idea that there would be live music. That is not what I was looking for as it was VERY NOISY. BUT, they put us in a back room, the noise level was very manageable and the food was really outstanding! I ordered the price fixed which included a wonderful salad, the flounder and shrimp oreganato and gelato for dessert. All my friends also loved their meals.

Ruvo West is a great find in Greenlawn right on Broadway. I have been here twice for lunch in the past 3 weeks and the $12 prix fixe cannot be beat. They offer a large menu of good food at a great price plus there's also wine specials so a glass of red or white at $6, you can get a delicious meal for less than $20. The bar is beautiful and the restaurant has authentic old wide wood planks and nice Tuscan decor. The wait staff is fabulous - friendly and helpful but not overbearing. This is just the kind of restaurant I love for a boozy lunch with my husband on a cold Friday. I will definitely be going back.

I think the food at Ruvo is especially delicious. I often order their flatbread as an entree. the shrimp oreganato is very good. Their scallop appetizer is delicious as is their salmon.

Ruvo’s is one of our favorite lunchtime restaurants. They have great $12 lunch specials. I typically get the short rib wrap which is excellent. My only complaint about the restaurant is that it typically gets crowded and can get somewhat noisy. With this said I would still highly recommend this restaurant.

We hadn’t been to Ruvo in over ten years because we weren’t pleased the last time we had gone and we’re giving Ruvo another chance. I’m glad we gave Ruvo another chance! Two of us had the prix fixe menu and had the 5 hour short ribs and they were amazing! The flat bread with the shrimp was very good too!

We went out to celebrate an anniversary. We were seated right away. All of our servers were very nice and attentive and every course was served promptly. The reason I gave it four stars for quality of food was that I absolutely loved my dish (as did my husband when I let him have some), but my husband was not happy with his dish and honestly his was kind of generic when I tried it. Although the atmosphere was very nice, I felt kind of crowded. I did get bumped into or jostled a couple of times by people walking past which was not fun. But overall it was a very nice place, I enjoyed myself, and I will definitely be back
