Best pizza ever. Still the same for many years. Matt is the best employee. Always greats with a smile & knows your name. Even knows what you want and how you like it. Clifford

And not just out table, but table next to us sent food back. Owner came o er to our table, put a form to meatball and grabbed them off the table saying it was a mistake. I rest my case. Even toss salad was bad.

Rudy's move next to Fairway is a good one. Convenient to several new stores at the Plaza, Take out is good, very busy. The pizza is good. It is always busy. I always do the take out, but there is a dine-in area.

We have eaten here several times and it's always the same....food is SPECTACULAR and service is terrible......last time we waited over 15 minutes for anyone to take our drink order (and no it was not crowded)......ordered everything with the drinks and took over an hour to get our food......I think we are done eating here and will only do take-out...

A favorite for over 20 years. We love the takeout and the friendly restaurant. A local favorite for sure.

I love their pizza. The crust is excellent and I'm not a crust person. I think their chicken Parmesan is a little salty but the kids love it. The line at the place speaks for itself.

Now that Rudy's is back to where it has been for year -- the dining area is much more pleasant. Food remains a steady-- one of our favorite pizzas to eat in. Not our favorite for take out -- the line is always long.

Closter Plaza may be sporting a new look and new stores, but Rudy's remains with great Italian food and friendly service. Countless visits and never disappointed.

Pizza is delicious, Rudi's special chopped salad is great, unfortunately, the food is just mediocre at best.

We were seated immediately on a busy Sunday eve, but it took much to much time before a waiter approached our table to bring drinks and take an order. Hopefully, this was the exception to the rule. However, the food was very good, the prices are fair, the place is clean and family friendly and the décor pleasant. TIP: Phone... More
