Restaurant of the Week: Ruffino

Ruffinos, an Italian restaurant in Phoenix, offers the best of traditional Italian classics and new favorites for a dining experience that is unforgettable. 


Starting off with appetizers FabAZ recommends the fried mozzarella – Lightly breaded fried and served with a delicious marinara sauce. It’s a great way to start off the fabulous meal you are about to enjoy. The bruscheta and crostini, and the stuffed mushrooms were popular items throughout the restaurant. We recommend trying anyone of these items as they are great starters to share and won’t disappoint.

Heading into the entrée’s, Fab AZ was excited to see what the rest of the menu held, because the appetizer was so good. We tried the baked ziti and eggplant parmigiana. These entrée’s did not disappoint. Both of these entrees are your traditional Italian classics, but Ruffinos somehow made them better. You cannot go wrong with any item on this menu!

What’s dinner without dessert? We tried the canoli. This was the best canoli that I have ever had, and when I go back, I am saving room for dessert!

Also join Ruffino every Thursday through Sunday nights for live entertainment in the Piano Bar and Lounge.

Ruffino is open at 3 p.m. Monday – Friday, and 4 p.m. on the weekends.
