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.

Our waiter was honest and candid about his recommendations, and the food was really good. The live music on Saturday night was a nice touch.

My husband and I like to come here on dates. It's on Historic 25th street which is a cool area in Ogden to be in. Always good food and service. My favorite dish is the seafood fettuccine.

Small family owned restaurant with delicious, authentic Italian food and desserts. Their portions are medium to large and all homemade. They have a bakery inside the restaurant with homemade desserts. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed, but professional. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Musicians perform some evenings, which makes the atmosphere very pleasant.

My wife and I long decided that Rovali's is our go-to location for Italian food. Every portion of the meal is delicious. The Minestrone soup is tasty and hot and warm enough to take the bowl in your hands and finish off the last portion. The noodles are perfectly made. My favorite main dish is the lasagna with three cheeses... More

I eat here once a month at least because it is the best Italian food I've ever had. Hands down my favorite Italian restaurant ever. I highly recommend the vegetarian lasagna with a triple berry tea!

Hi Turner B, I'm glad you recommended the veggie lasagna... it is one of our popular dishes! I think our veggie sauce is really good and I'm glad you like it too! I have not had the triple berry tea, but I'm going to try it based on your recommendation! :-) Thanks, Alex More

The atmosphere is good and the people are nice but the food is terrible. Tastes like chef boyardee in a bowl.
