Delicious Italian food right outside the city center. Cozy family-owned restaurant with a very friendly, helpful staff. Our waiter made stellar recommendations and let us linger over our wine long after all the other guests had gone home.

Me and my hubby went here after a massage, so I was not even nicely dressed. Not nice enough for the experience, at least. Cozy restaurant, and our waiter was SO GOOD at her job.

I went here with my girlfriend for valentines day, and Ruffino didn't disappoint. The staff was really nice, and gave us the service you expect from such a place. We ordered beef medium done, and it was just perfect. One of the best I have had. For dessert we ate chocolate fondant, it was delicious to. They have an amazing... More

I've been to Ruffino twice; once for my anniversary, and once for my birthday a year later, and you guys, I can't even begin to explain how amazing this place is! Already at the door you're being taken care of. They hold the door open for you, smile at all times, always polite and eager to help with anything! The... More

If you want to have a meal, just like you can get in Italy, this is the place to go. Excellent location - right across the street from the Royal Palace. Food to make your mouth water for more. The real Italian experience. Service-minded staff greet you at the door, give informative information about the entrés, and treat you as... More

I went here with friends for dinner. The service was vert good, and the restaurant was lively and lovely. The food was good but not quite as it was in Italy. All the pasta is fresh made. It was the sauce which was a bit bland.
