Great atmosphere – It was all in all a pretty positive experience. I don't eat out a lot, but when I do, I like friendly people, quick service, good food and great atmosphere. all of the above at Ruffino's
Horrible service and terrible food – We went on a Saturday night around 7 and the place was empty. That should have told us something but... Our appetizers were good and we enjoyed the house salads but our service was terrible and we had to ask repeatedly for refills on drinks. Dinners took forever and when they reached the table they were not as described in the menu. To make matters worse they skimped on everthing so the veal and chicken dinners were mostly noodles and carrots. The chicken marsala I ordered tasted like the mushroom chicken served at bamboo express. It was horrible. Everyone in our party was disappointed except my son who ordered the kids cheese pizza. Save your money and go some place else!!
Horrible – We started with the calamari appetizer which was delicious. Tender and fried to perfection. The batter was just run of the mill, no special seasonings. The marinara sauce it was served with was so so.
The caesar salads were fresh and nice portioned.
So far so good.... then its downhill from there.
The rolls were too doughy and swimming in a butter hot pepper sauce.
My husband got a seafood pasta in wine entree. The scallops tasted freezer burned, the calamari was practically inedible, the shrimp small, the pasta did not taste homemade. The mussels were good. Not worth the $17.95
I got the Tour of Italy. The chicken parmesan was paper thin and tasted like cardboard with sauce and cheese on top, the lasagna was one step above Stouffers and the fettuccini again didnt taste like fresh, homemade pasta and the sauce tasted like it came from a jar. The chicken and lasagna portions were TINY and the fettuccini portion was much too much. Not worth the $14.95
Our service was poor although I was watching the other servers and tables turned while we were there and it seemed pretty good I think we just got a bum waitress.
