My husband and I wanted to get away from the restaurant chains in Anaheim and found this gem via Trip Advisor. You are greeted in a friendly manner and the food...oh, the food! We ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara and Capellini Giardino and we had chicken added to both - SO delicious! We enjoyed it so much we returned the next... More

Haven't felt like this in a long time! Every place is the same any more.... Rufino's food is excellent! Atmosphere is endearing. Be aware that the location is not so terrific.

I stopped here for a quick dinner after spending the day at Disneyland with my family. The service was very friendly and attentive, even though it was late. All of us enjoyed our pasta and each of the sauces were very tasty and fresh. The menu was not very big, I suspect they stick to what they know and I... More

Awesome simple home style Italian. Budget cheap and cheerful. Been there forever apparently and I can see why. Little faded and rough around the edges in a tacky dining room but who cares - it adds to the experience of a family business doing what they know exactly right. Marinara sauce was a perfect blend of tomato pepper and chilli.... More

We were driving into the Anaheim from LAX, going to Disney, and were starving and want just good food. After much reviewing on trip advisor I came across Rufino's. We have combo plates for the most part, I had the lasagna and manicotti, and we all immediately started sharing since we, the 9 of us, couldn't believe the deliciousness we... More

We looked around for a long time for espresso coffee and found this little Italian restaurant. The coffee was not filtered as in so many other locations in the area, served hot with a smile! We will return to the to try the food as it definitely was not fast food they served.

Pleasant local (small family) Italian restaurant. Was our daughters birthday so our waiter brought her dessert with a candle. Also gave her a ball cap. We had veal parmesan, chicken/broccoli pasta and "trio" All were very good and a great value. the tiramisu was light and delicious.

Another couple, my girlfriend, and I decided to go to Rufino's after a long day at Disneyland. A coworker had told me about it previously, and it sounded like a nice, quiet place to unwind and get great food. It was delicious. The pizza had a homemade crust and real toppings, the garlic bread was amazing, and the drinks were... More
