Oslo has lots of great Italian pizza restaurants. But Oslo does not have great Italian restaurants serving classic Italian food and with Italian atmosphere. Ruffino has it all. The best Vitello Tonnato I have ever got in Norway and other dishes that I have only...tasted in Italy or in London. The wine list is impressive. With wines from all over the country and super wines like Solaia and Sassicaia. The grappa list is dangerously long.More

We were amazed by the quality of the food and the service from everyone. We had a waitress by the name of Vanessa who was very kind and made our evening very pleasant. We definitely recommend this place.

Certainly one of the best places for a romantic dinner in Oslo! We are going there regularly, whenever we have something to celebrate or just want to have a nice evening out.

Nowhere in Oslo is really cheap to eat and alcohol is expensive everywhere compared to other places in Europe. I consider Ruffinos to be "fine dining" and it is very good - but is priced accordingly. A prosecco aperitif... More

No parking that we saw, but it's located on a corner close to the main commons area in the city center, just a few blocks away from the National Theater, where I believe there's a subway stop.
