The homemade rolls were delicious and my husband's glass of Chianti was good. This is located inside an old train depot. the feeling... More

Lots of choices for lunch specials & on the regular menu... More

Ruffinos was recommended by the locals we spoke to. That's usually good and they did not disappoint! The rolls were SO amazing! We shared the eggplant. It was delicious and plenty of food. Spaghetti and Fettuccine Alfredo were also very good. The wait staff was awesome and prices were fair with good sized portions. Glad we tried it!

This restaurant is situated in the old Rock Island Depot. The decor is reminiscent of old elegance. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bread is to die for! The food was very good and served beautifully. The tiramisu was tasty. What a nice experience.

Nice decor in an old train depot. Average Italian food with outstanding rollls. The servers seemed to be over stressed resulting in slow service.
