Ravello by Toscano
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
Ravello’s food and service never seem to disappoint.
We found this restaurant a few months ago and absolutely love it. Looking forward to having more dinners here!
after having been to Toscano, I expected their other restaurant, Ravello, to be a excellent.
But it was not.
The music was too loud. It felt and was a strip mall restaurant.
The waiter was not pleased with adjusting the food to dietary needs. Charged extra.
The plates were being cleared before we were all finished eating, A huge no, no in my book.
I would rather go to Toscano
What a fabulous meal! Food was excellent and the service matched it! The four of us enjoyed everything. The pork chop special was outstanding. The chopped antipasta was one of the best I ever had. The short rib egg rolls are a treat. The desserts are worth the calories!
Wonderful food and service. Creative menu. We have dined here many, many times. They have the best antipasto salad in New Jersey.
Food quality the best in the area. BYOB works well. Servers efficient and friendly. Noise level can be high - don’t expect intimate dining experience. Ambiance nothing special. Chef superb with offerings ever-changing. Highly recommend.
Tight seating but service and food made up for it
The food was outstanding. We had the mussels with chorizo for an appetizer. It was fabulous. It tasted like it had been simmering all day. I had chicken ravello for my main entree. It was delicious, very flavorful and tender. My husband had cace e Pepe. He has this every time we eat at Ravello. While he said it was very good, he was disappointed that they added spinach in the dish. It never had it before, not was it stated in the menu that it had spinach. We feel that all ingredient should be listed in the menu. It drives me crazy when restaurants just add items to their standard dishes without stating it. We will definitely return, it is our favorite special occasion restaurant. Although, the prices are quite reasonable, I don’t feel you need a special occasion to eat here.
Never disappointed. Quality taste always amazing. This is our go to restaurant
The tuna dish was excellent, but the mushroom and filet pasta was awful.
Always get excellent service and food.
Waiter was rude. Wont go back.
The food, service, and ambiance were excellent. We hope to return.
Jason was great. Food was delicious.
Our waiter Jason, was amazing! Very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions. The food was delicious!
Got together with wonderful friends. Food was fantastic, didn’t disappoint. Staff was very nice and their recommendations were spot on. Emma’s meatballs are unbelievable! Entrees were out of this world. Can’t wait to go back.
My husband and I traveled 45 minutes to try out this restaurant. It was well worth the trip! The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I believe that small touches go a long way when it comes to dining. Instead of throwing dry bread into a basket, this restaurant makes a delicious light garlic toast. We shared the Italian antipasto salad which was dressed perfectly. I had a special of sesame encrusted ahi tuna which was amazing! My husband had the short rib pappardelle which he loved. We will be making the trip many more times.
We hadn't been to Ravello for awhile because it is sometimes difficult to get into. This visit was exceptional! Tuna was DELICIOUS! Done to perfection. Excellent service as well.
There were several small fruit flies that were bothering us at our table. It was getting very annoying trying to eat and swat the flies.
Another great meal. Wife had the Strip Steak special that was great. I had the stuff pork chop that was awesome.
Everything as always was amazing!
Always have a good meal....Waitress was great, but they were transitioning from a big party so wait for service was longer but food came out on time....had to wait to pay for check....one more person to support waitress would have been helpful. This happens very rare...no shade to waitress...
Food and service were excellent!
Just love the place! Always an amazing meal the staff are awesome! Used to live near it but now it is a ride for us to go there but worth it!
Yummy but loud
Great portions and delicious dinners
10 yr wedding anniversary
Always a repeat visit for us on date night. The hardest part is not being able to order one of EVERYTHING!!
A fabulous special occasion restaurant, well worth the choice. A little on the high end but everything is prepared and served with that in mind.
Great food and service. Food tastes fresh not frozen.
Great spot for a date night. Food was excellent and the portion size was huge.
Consistently on point all around. Great food, great service (thx Jason). Great evening!
