Excellent food. We had the chicken parm, mozzarella w tomato and basil, eggplant rolatini. All were some of the finest I’ve had. Rivals even Carmine’s and La Mela in Little Italy, NYC.

Christy Swope

Alec F Fernandez

Delightful in every way. Young, energetic staff, delicious food presented beautifully, great selection of wine, and strong cocktails. I suggest making a reservation, as Rudy's has a large and enthusiastic following that keeps them busy most of the time.

Stopped here after a round of golf...there werent many food options nearby and this one really delivered. High quality food and good service. Pasta and salads were awesome. Nice calamari too. 4 stars because decor is a little low end but again, food was really great. I will be back.

Marty Roden

I all their food to be very very good. I love the Sunday dinner special which is served every day the pizza is delicious also.

James Wolan

Outstanding pizza. You can even watch your pizza being cooked through a window into their large spinning oven. Enticing appetizers and entrees give diners plenty of options to choose from. Service was Excellent and the atmosphere was quite inviting. A popular place to be sure, as it's always been busy when I go.

Ray Sachkowsky

First of all, very expensive! My wife and daughter did not enjoy their meals at all, I couldn't bring myself to try it based on their reaction. I kept mine simple with a classic Italian Dish because I know better when trying new places. Will not recommend two friends or family

Sean Queenan

Very nice Italian restaurant in Garwood. It is super casual and the staff are very friendly and polite . I love their spaghetti and meatballs and manicotti and I know several people who love the broccoli rob dish. The wait for your entree is usually under twenty minutes. My only complaint which is a minor one is that this restaurant is in literally a very tight set up and so it is difficult to talk and chat in this restaurant. Something needs to be done to have the noise level lowered. It has stopped me from coming back in the past because during lunch /dinner I hate raising my voice to chat with the company I’m with.

Rudys has the best chicken francese and food around. I've been all over NJ and have tried about a hundred different restaurants, but none of them quite have the right flavoring or the perfect recipes that Rudys has. Their personal pizzas are delectable and theirs soups are great. Not to mention the calamari, which is really crispy and never rubbery at all. Although a small place, it's a really charming environment with friendly staff and excellent service. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food they make. I have never waited a long time to recieve my food in this restaurant. I love the atmosphere, and it gets really busy some nights, the food is so popular around town! Even after moving from the area, I still love dining here and I always make sure to stop in from time to time when I can to eat. Normally, I don't have time for reviews but I definirely owe it to this awesome restaurant for being exceptional in every way. I know I will be coming here for years to come, my cravings beckon me to get their food and I couldn't go without them!

Best pizza in the area and I've been to all of them. For me, it's good pizza when I actually eat the crust vs throwing it out. Good sauce and ample cheese.

Jim Sheaf

I had the veal stuffed with mozzarella in brown mushroom sauce. I live 150 miles away and wish it were closer to home, as this was the most enjoyable dish I've had in years.

Nina Mkrtychyan

Gregory Broadbent

One of my favorite Italian restaurants in the area. Also has Gluten free pastas..

Quyloon Reese

A nice close, cozy environment to be in but a little tight to my liking and perhaps to the staff who I often saw trying to squeeze by! The portion size here is amazing! Italian cuisine is my specialty. I tasted better but this place was not bad; a sure try! The wait time was horrible and there was a dirty spoon concern and was asked, "Do you need to use it? There is no need to replace it if you are not going to use it." The customer is always right is the motto I like to follow; so, do the ones giving you business a favor (really an obligated duty according to health codes and safety standards)...just replace the utensil no matter it being used or not!

Lorraine Stinner

Service is great, food is always consistently the best of any Italian restaurant around. I have never been disappointed.

John Hathaway

Excellent food and staff. Very diverse menu, and also they will adjust it to your taste, if you ask.

Gigi Gallodoro

Pasta fagioli is amazing, every bowl is made to order and it's always served piping hot! I love the shrimp & bean appetizer too, always cooked to perfection with the most gorgeous shrimp!

William Rulo

Great food and atmosphere. Cannot wait to visit again.

Tony Casciano

Nice decor, good service, four stars for that. We started by sharing fried calamari and stuffed mushrooms. Calamari was good, the marinara sauce that came with it was decent. We didn't enjoy the mushrooms, can't put my finger on it but the taste was not what we expected. For entrees two had the potato crusted salmon, they said it was ok. The potato crust was a potato pancake and everything was covered in a sauce. Made the pancake soggy and the salmon could have been seasoned more. Another had the shrimp and pasta dish, he seemed to enjoy it. I had the Mama Mia platter. Tortellini Alfredo, chicken parmesan and lasagna. It was a large portion. The lasagna was ok, had lots of meat, macaroni, sauce and cheese were good. The tortellini was also ok. I had one of the two pieces of chicken. It was a little tough but the sauce and cheese were good. Two of us split the lemoncello cake with rasberry drizzle, it was very good.

The food was outstanding . The service was great ,even for 7 45 on Saturday night The restaurant was busy, but the mussels were great, we got them in white wine. The fried calamari was great. The sangria was outstanding. The dinners came out very fast even though the restaurant was busy. The dinners had a nice portion to them,we'll be back.
