Ravello by Toscano
The calamari is delicious but overly sweet for our group’s taste. The chicken artichoke was terrific! The service was good but a little more hovering than we prefer. With that said, it was a very good evening out.
First time visit. Reservation was for 4 adults and a baby. We ate early at 5:00 because we had the baby with us. The staff was very accommodating, the service was wonderful. We ordered appetizers and the ravioli entree also as a family style appetizer. Every dish ordered was delicious and we will absolutely be returning.
Arranged for Reservations for 6 at 630 and we only waited a few minutes to be seated. Our waiter arrived, introduced himself ABs announced the specials but didn’t take drink orders and left. He seemed flustered or off? But not knowing him it was hard to tell which. He was that way all evening but we made the most of it and just concluded he was having an off night. It was an effort to get fishers cleared from the table. Aside from that the food from beginning to end was delicious! The table bread, the calamari app and our dinners were all on point! It’s BYOB which is great too. Honestly would love to go back to try more dishes!
We enjoyed the Caesar salad, chicken franchese, and fettuccine Alfredo. The food was fresh (and the pasta was homemade), and our server was polite and fast. We will be back again.
Excellent service and food! I have been there several times, and it is always fantastic!!
Always a favorite. Consistent. Delicious. Grilled steak is better than any high end steak house.
Great food, service and happily accommodated my daughters food allergies. We’ll be back!
We've been in the area five years and Ravello is my favorite and in my opinion the best the area has to offer. There menu offers traditional Italian favorites, contemporary continental spins, and specials that make use of the best seasonal ingredients. While they don't have the variety of steak offerings as their mother restaurant, Toscano, they always have a solid steak offering too. I typically alternate between these specials and my favorite chicken and shrimp ravello. Service is always A+ and they softened their color scheme and decor to make it cozier.
As usual the food was outstanding. It gets better every time. The service was good and it was close to home. My only complaint is the noise level. That must mean everyone was having a nice time.
Always a great meal at Ravello , excellent food and service . One of our favorite restaurants !!
Celebrated my wife’s Retirement! Service was very good. Minor cutbacks was noticeable from our last visit.
Hostess dressed in a jogging suit, REALLY??? Tables are way too close together. Waiter screwed up pizza order and did not get to eat lunch. He was polite and took care of it.
Disappointing. Came because we love Toscanos; we won’t return here. Lesser menu, lesser experience of service, lesser enjoyment of the food. Cold draft not only from the front door... but also emanating from the bathroom hallway. Server didn’t check on us once she delivered food... but that was almost a pleasure because her way of being was grating.
Great food & service. A little noisy due to several Christmas parties
You can count on a great meal every time you are at Ravello by Toscano. Calamari appetizer is unbelievable. Perfectly prepared nice and tender lightly fried. Tuna special ALWAYS exceptional. It doesn’t matter how the tuna is prepared it’s always perfect. The chef at Ravello by Toscano is amazing.
Great food and service
Food was excellent. Plates are presented in an appealing way. Huge portions. Can't wait to go back.
The food was great all of it was amazing. The noise level was tough. I am hearing impaired so it made it tougher.
Absolutely perfect the two times we have been! Reservations are a MUST!
When making the reservation, I specifically asked to have a corner table not in the middle of room. They do not pay attention to the comments section of this site for reservations. We were seated at a table in the middle of the room in the high traffic area where we were bumped into several times by wait staff. It was a very uncomfortable feeling to keep ducking waitstaff to avoid being knocked into.
great meal every time.
Food was amazing! Can’t wait to go back and try another dish.
Went for lunch. Two tables finishing and we were the only table (later two more tables of two came in). The waiter was flying around frantically for seemingly no reason. It was not busy. Took him awhile to come to our table to take our order. There were three of us. I said that we were going to share a couple of dishes: a soup and then a pasta dish. 20-25 minutes later, BOTH dishes come out. I asked him to take the soup back and hold it until we were done with the pasta. Perhaps I should have told him to course it or perhaps he could've asked me. Anyway, he never once checked on us throughout the meal. That said (of course you remember the service, good or bad), the food was delicious. Had the tagliatelle with short ribs and then the pasta fagioli. Would get both again. Haven't been here in awhile and I will return because of the food. My service philosophy is that the slower and less crowded a restaurant is, the worse the service is. This again proved true. However, I will return and hope the service is better.
As a frequent visitor to Toscano we were very disappointed.
Good excellent. Portions ample. Service good. Will be back. Very well done
This was a return visit but our first on a busy Saturday night. Outstanding food concepts and preparation. The wait and bus staff were well trained and professional. This is a quality restaurant in a local setting. Prices are suitable for portion size and quality ingredients. The mussel appetizer is great. The cod was from the shore fresh and delicious. A coveted reservation.
Enjoy this restaurant very much!
Love this place. Excellent food
Lives up to the Toscano name. The place is great for foodies and you will certainly not leave hungry because portions are very generous. They rarely have steak on the menu but it has always been a special and their steaks are the same as they serve at Toscano's in Bordentown so don't miss the beef! BYOB is very nice as well. Highly recommended!
Appetizer and bread where very good . The dinner tagatelle with ragu tasted crunchy and had a weird spice . I got sick on the chicken PARM / very acidic / dessert flourless cake was terrible a total waste of money
Our first visit to Ravello was a huge success. The food was wonderful. The Shrimp and Chicken Ravello was excellent. The portions are large. The freshness of the ingredients is obvious. The prices are quite moderate, considering the quality of the food. We will definitely return to try other choices on the menu.
Definitely one of our top choices for Italian food, with truly killer Mama’s Meatballs and Chicken Parmesan, my personal bellwether for judging the quality of an Italian restaurant. This latest visit lived up to our already lofty expectations, and we continue to return and enjoy their offerings.
Great food every time
Jason, good waiter. Marissa, excellent hostess.
This was our first visit, and we’ll be back! A warm welcome and warm ambiance were immediate pluses. From salad shared to meatballs and lasagne, our litmus tests!, all was delicious. Our server was great and we enjoyed our time dining.
We arrived on time for our reservation. The hostess, a tall, thin, blond woman, did not even acknowledge us or speak to us. She just picked up 2 menus and showed us to our table, which was the worst table in the restaurant. It was right by the door and next to the servers' station. Every 5-10 minutes, a waiter was right behind my husband's chair, entering orders into the computer. I asked to be moved to a different table, but she said she only had tables for 4. The restaurant was very cold; I had my coat on the entire meal.
We ordered the chopped antipasto which was saturated with dressing, making the greens very limp. My husband had the chicken soup which was very bland. We added parmesan cheese which helped a bit. I had the chicken parm. It was a large portion, but the chicken was rubbery.
The service was terrible. We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes for our entrée. Another table that was seated 30 minutes after us was served their entrées immediately after us. The waiter apologized for the wait, but once he served the entrees, he never came back to check on us. We did not bother with dessert, since I was cold, and we did not want to wait any longer.
This was a complete waste of $82. Heed my advice, and do not go to this restaurant.
Enjoyed dinner with friends. Portions are large , keep in mind when ordering appetizers as they are generous as well. Everything came out hot and delicious. Their bread is wonderful. Great byob restaurant.
Food was outstanding
Nice place to dine. Wish it were closer as we’d go more regularly....
Ravello’s food and service never seem to disappoint.
