    This was our first time at Ravello's and we really enjoyed the food and the proximity to our home. Excellent Italian food without having to drive in to Boston.

    Good eggplant but shrimp fra diavalo was very greasy. Lots of flies hanging around by the windows - staff should have killed the dozen plus flies around several tables prior to allowing opening.

    First time. Great food and neat vibe. Had stuffed blossom and bean apps. Split three pastas: gnocchi short rib ravioli and bolognese. All wonderful. Friendly and nice service. Good value. Great location alternative to Cambridge or Boston spots. Highly recommend and will repeat!

    We went to Ravello with another couple. We have been there a few times and always had a great experience. We were seated as soon as we got there. Our waitress Emma arrived soon after with our menus and took our drink orders. She was back almost instantly with bread for our table. Our drinks followed a minute later. We ordered 2 apps and our meals. Food all came out in a timely fashion. One thing that always impress me and did impress the other couple was on how hot the meals come out. There is steam coming from them. They come directly from stove/oven to the tables. Food was excellent as always. Emma was very attentive. The Chef helped bring out our meals. He socialized with us for a few seconds before heading back out to the kitchen. A bottle of wine, one draft beer, 2 appetizers and 4 entrees plus tax and the bill was just a shade over $150. Can't beat that. So great service, excellent food and fantastic prices make Ravello a go to place.

    While the pasta was velvety smooth, it was boiled in unsalted water, so it was blander than bland. Such a shame. Hopefully it was just one night of mindlessness.
