Fantastic. The food is great, the staff is friendly, the price is wonderful. We went on a busy night and still were treated like we could stay all night long, the food came out of the kitchen quickly and the guy running the place made sure we were enjoying ourselves. Highly recommend.

I was there with a group of 16 for lunch. They set up a long table for us. I had the fettuccine Alfredo. It was a good-size portion for me and very good. I have also tried their pizzelles and cannolis - very good!!

Went for a late dinner in Jan. I wasn't all that hungry so ordered the minestrone soup. I think by 8:30 pm, the soup had been on the burner for awhile. Everything was tasteless and mushy. So I asked for a little bit of marina sauce to mix into the soup and wow, what a difference. The bread was very,... More

My son just moved to the Ogden area and we looked at Trip Advisor for recommendations in the area. Rovali's came up and after reading some reviews, made a reservation. So glad we did as some people just showing up had a 45 min wait! Yes, it's worth the wait, but make a reservation! We had the combination platter for... More

The owners daughter makes all the deserts from scratch! We still haven't had a bad desert there and would rate the desert a 5 star. The entrees are decent, but nothing to write home about. They offer a Vegetarian Lasagne which is a nice change.

Our first visit, located on busy 25th street where parking is a hassle, but worth a short walk if necessary. It was snowing and the owner was out front shoveling the walk, and later came by to tell us about the specials. Food was excellent, with nice size portions, not huge mounds or tiny decorative fare, but a nice meal.... More

Made reservations at Rovali's for the late Beatle's Tribute Show on New Year's Eve. What a great place! We were seated immediately. The owner, Alex, was making the rounds, chatting with all the visitors for the show and highlighting the evening's specials. We ordered a shrimp Caesar salad and the turkey, bacon, and avocado sandwich. Both were very generously portioned... More

Stopped in Ogden on our road trip Houston to Moscow, Idaho. After checking menus at several restaurants on historic 25 street, we chose this restaurant. Great choice! We had the evening special, pasta with homemade pesto and grilled zucchini. We added grilled mushrooms. We split one dinner and added a side salad. Hannah was a great server. Large portions.
