Headline says it all... the staff are very rude and obnoxious. Better service ordering food at the bowling alley. So, my food had a hair in it - they could care less. Got me a new meal. Acted towards me like I was being dishonest. Very rude. Further, the food was crap. Plenty of other places to go in Charlotte.

This is like being in little Italy in New York City! The place is self owned and run. The menu is true Italian food with real family recipes. This is an exceptional place to dine for a very reasonable price. It is a hidden gem!

Even though this restaurant had mixed reviews we decided to give it a try. I had veal marsala and it was quite bland. It came with risotto and that was tasty. My husband had linguini with clams and said his dish was very salty. We shared a chocolate gelato dessert that was the worst gelato I ever had. The service... More

I'm sitting here eating the lasagna I ordered from this place via Foodie Call. It's is just OK. Stoffer's is better. $15 way overpriced.

We came for a light meal and were met with attentive service and tasty food. The waiter went the extra mile, ensuring there was gluten- free pasta for one of the party. We're from Europe and appreciate that we weren't rushed, the table was kept cleared and the waiter filled the "doggie box" behind the scenes. The food was fresh... More

I cook tons of Italian food. Spend a ton of time in Italy and I have never once came across anything like the Bolognese sauce that I experienced here. The traditional sauce is made with beef, pork (usually pancetta) and veal, carrots, celery, onions, red wine and a touch of tomato paste. After a long time of simmering a touch... More

We love Rudy's. We usually dine with friends and you will more than likely see us there at least twice a month. Our favorite night is Gnocchi night - which is Thursday nights. They have spoiled gnocchi for me anywhere else. It is simply the very best. In addition to our monthly frequent visit, like others this is also our... More

4 of us ate here last night for the first time. Atmosphere is nice, dark wood, but fairly open. I had the Caesar salad - it had excellent homemade dressing (my guess is the croutons were homemade as well). Good bread was served complimentary with white kidney bean. My veal saltimbocca was very good. The veal easy was extremely tender... More

My wife and I ate at Rudys on New Year's Eve. We had the tasty cheese stuffed mushrooms as an app. The Italian bread is as good as my Italian grand mother served us. The Osso Buco is one of my favs. My wife had crab filled ravioli that she loves. The cannoli for dessert was the best that I... More
