The restaurant is in a plaza very deceiving! Every table was empty when we walked in at 5 by 515 every table was taken. First impression average. The waitress (Katherine)was pleasant very accommodating. The food was very good Italian if we lived in the area we would return to this restaurant for a good meal.

The people here are so nice. Every time I come into this restaurant, I have an amazing night. The food is delicious, the waitresses and hostesses are attentive, nice, and all around amazing people. We have known them for many years, and I have never had a bad meal at Rufina's. 10/10 would recommend.

The food is good at Rufina's and the portion sizes are more than adequate, making Rufina's a very good value. My husband had the veal Piatto di Strata, pan fried veal cutlets topped with sliced Prosciutto and Provolone served over linguine tossed with sauteed mushrooms and chopped spinach in a roasted garlic and Madiera wine sauce. It was very good... More

I had been to Rufina's several times with my daughter and her fiance. We have had the italian dishes, the seafood and of course the garlic bread (my daughter's fiance loves their garlic bread). This trip was special and my friend was treating me to a birthday celebratory dinner. To my delight, the meal was wonderful. We each had filet... More

We were in Chelmsford for Father's Day and I made sure I made reservations for dinner. After looking at reviews, I chose Rufina's. It was a great choice. Rufina's was a lovely place, nice atmosphere, nice decor. It was very busy, but we didn't have to wait long for service. I was very pleased that our server acknowledged our presence... More

We moved to a new area and were looking for a new local favorite restaurant. We think we have found it. My husband had the steak and I had the risotto. He loved his steak and couldn't eat it all. My risotto was huge. It was a bit underdone and needed a bit more to get rid of the extra... More

Exceptional food and outstanding service! You can't beat Rufina's Italian cuisine served with friendly service. For a real sampling of outstanding Italian cuisine try the Tre Costollette:"Three Cutlets", veal, chicken and eggplant each topped with its own cheese (Asiago, Fontina and Gorgonzola) served with a choice of pasta marinara..Enjkoy it with a glass of Montepulciano.

We (my wife and I) live within walking distance of Rufina's and have been there too many times to count. Sometimes it's dinner, sometimes dessert. Every time the food is good, abundant, well-prepared, and the service is excellent. I have had two family functions there, including my wedding reception a few weeks ago. We had parties for both around 40... More
