Lunch on a Tuesday was good as always. Consistently good food comes out of the kitchen and their $10. lunch specials are almost unheard of. The menu is varied and extensive, and you won't be disappointed. Parking can be a PITA during the summer but that should not be the reason not to go. They've been in business many years... More

The atmosphere is quaint and reminded us of a restaurant we dined at in Quebec. It is set back from the road and a little hard to find but it is walking distance from Danfords even on a cold evening. The wine list wasn't high end yet had a great selection of wines and just note, like many restaurants don't... More

Ruvo's came highly recommended to me, so I was pretty excited. The recommendation was the duck. I had a Cesar salad, the duck and a lemon custard for desert. We also tried their Cabernet Franc as our wine with the salad. The ambiance is nice and the bar was very busy, conversation was somewhat challenging. My dinner partners had been... More

A restaurant hidden in the town of Port Jefferson with a very romantic atmosphere. Port Jefferson alone has a delightful charm. Cozy but vibrant bar where it can get to the fun + crazy level Food is superb and the service is always at it's best.

The same owners La Tavola in Sayville, the food is much different but is just as good. The seating is very cute because some are church pews. Try the shrimp and filet dish it is real good.

We visited Port Jeff for my boyfriend's birthday and after reading up on where to eat, I made reservations at Ruvo. There was 5 of us and they seated us promptly and they were very busy! The service was good, not memorable but certainly not horrible. The menu is nice and they have a good selection of drinks. Everyone was... More

Received gift certificate for anniversary. First time we ate there was okay and service was very slow. Food was just okay nothing to rave about. Second time we figured lets give this place a second chance. Well I don't think we will return unless they change.
