Quietly hidden away…

…in a small strip-mall in uptown Naples-on-the-Lake is one of Niagara’s newest restaurants, Ruffino’s Pasta Bar & Grill, which offers a menu committed to the slow food movement of Italy.

Once one finds ruffino’s, the aroma of peach wood burning in the brick oven and glow of the wood-fired grill lets guests know they’re not out just for dinner, but are embarking on a culinary journey of somewhereness rooted in Italian cuisine. Our Wines and beverages are locally focused set against a backdrop of fine Italian & International wines and Spirits.

We are a neighbourhood restaurant.  We welcome Families and friends every day into our home.  And feed them like Nona does!

The staff tends to our garden and delivers vegetables daily, still warm from the sun. We cook them fresh every day and preserve those which we can’t, for those long winter months. We source ethically raised meat, do all of our butchery in-house, and cook over an open fire. Our sourdough breads are hand crafted and baked fresh in our wood-fired oven every day.  Pastas are made daily and of course are pizzas are wood-fired as well on a sourdough crust.

Each day our team works together in writing the menu that tells the story of  our community through food and drink.

Please sit back, relax, and let us tell you the tale of ruffino’s…
