We were in town for one night, passing through on our way to Colorado. Our hotel recommended we walk down 25th Street to find a dinner place. We looked around, and found Rovali's. We were seated with a short wait, by Alex, the owner. He introduced himself and showed us some specials and desserts on his Ipad, which nice photos, etc. Our server was Deena, and she was friendly, helpful and efficient. We had the special which was Chicken Milanese and it was wonderful. Our daughter had spaghetti and Mama's meatball (which was massive!), and she enjoyed her dinner as well. We would definitely come back!

I agree with the lady who stated "oh yes, been here before my daughter". The owner is nice enough, but ran out on the entire establishment for his kids"?" Hey, I have children and get "family comes first" but, come on -Knowing we had an issue we wished to discuss with him, he left us with his "manager". (Who promptly admitted the owner did not wish to deal with the matter, and we would pay full price even if we did discuss the issue with her).

She was also correct on the seating. Cramped and at the time we visited they didn't have tablecloths - don't know about now.

If you like flour, order the alfredo - if not stay clear. Also eat it first or that's all you will taste is UNcooked flour. Meat sauce is ok, but even my daughter makes better (both red and white).

No cookies - and the ricotta(?) was sour in the canolli 's. Spent Over 70 dollars there, with no recourse offered, because we "tied" up a table for over 30 minutes. Hope you, your wife and kids +1 (Female Manager), enjoy cheap chocolates as you won't be getting cream from me !

Stopped in for dinner. Reviews on Trip Advisor were good. So glad we did. Food was excellent. Ordered chicken picatta. Chicken in a lemon butter sauce served on Angel hair pasta. WOW! Service was good. The cookie dough cake is enough for two. Only criticism...restaurant temp a little warm. Highly recommend reservations. Entertainment on weekends.
