I would definitely recommend eating here! The food was great! My husband ordered the Lasagna, and I ordered the Chicken Marsala. Both were fabulous! They were both very flavorable and delicious. Our waiter was Kyle. He was very professional and courteous. Unfortunately, we did not know when the restraunt closed, and we stayed an extra 30 min after closing talking with friend. We felt so bad that we stayed so long. Even though the restraunt was closed Kyle never made us feel pressured to leave. He was very patient which I don't think I would have been if I was in his shoes! We will definitely go back. Hopefully we can get Kyle as our waiter again, so we can give him an extra big tip for staying so late.

From being seated and meeting the Alex the owner who personally came over to discuss the menu and tell a corny joke, to the wine, salad entrees (I had Pesto superb), my wife had angel hair pasta, to the scrumptious Spumoni cake, this was a great evening at a great restaurant. Our waitress was nice and responsive. On 25th street. We sat by the window. They have an outside patio, 12 beers on tap. I had the house red, Crow Cabernet which was very good.

Go here! You won't be disappointed.

We ordered the 'House Combo' for an appetizer and loved everything! My pesto pasta was very good and the other five folks in our group were all happy with their choices! Complete with a good wine and beer selection...(yes, in Utah!) and we were satisfied. We topped it all of by sharing a big portion of tiramisu....which we all loved! Nice work!!!

The food was good. We enjoyed the fast service.There was lots of cheese, which is amazing. The bread is absolutely spectacular! I thought the meatball was incredible! We were a little thrown off when my husband ordered chicken marsala and it was pre-cut, we were kind of expecting a full breast. It was delicious anyway!

Hi sadiebarr425,

We are glad you enjoyed our food! The reason we cut our chicken for the Marsala is to make sure it marinates properly in our wine sauce. We want every bit to have the full flavor! We call our chef (who also happens to be our son-in-law) the Master of Spice and he is really proud of all the flavors of our dishes! I have personally never seen anyone as obsessed with flavor as I have with Chef Ro. :-)

Please come back and see us again, so you can try something new! Remember, we have a NEW featured dish every week at Rovali's. We also change our Homemade desserts every week too!

Have a wonderful summer!

Alex :-)

Hands down the best Italian in town. We've loved it every time we've been in. The owner usually stops by and we chat about bikes. Try it you'll love it
