Sauce was far from authentic and really buttery. It was evident that the ingredients were not fresh or of good quality. I ordered the seafood pasta dish. Probably not the best idea at a restaurant in SW Kansas. The setting and interior were nice. Been there once and will not return.

Nice, clean, sharp looking Italian restaurant. If you think you have to go to Italy for some great Italian, look no further than Ruffino's.

Should have ordered anything but the shrimp scampi......terrible and it was expensive besides! Our waiter was really BAD, and could not remember what we ordered, never brought us our drinks until we already ate our rolls and salad! He forgot part of our order and had to be reminded several times before they were brought to the table. I wish... More

In looking for a non-fast food lunch, we happened on to this restaurant in an historic train depot. Large varied menu but we didnt expect much as we all have eaten at top rated Italian restaurants in the country. To say we were blown away by the food, service and atmosphere is an understatement! Fresh yeasty homeade warm rolls were... More

Ate there several times it is always been awesome. If you're on a mid-level budget their pizza is competitively priced and the best you will eat in liberal

The restaurant is located in the original hotel adjacent to the old Rock Island depot. Depot is now a city property. Good food, good service, in an interesting setting. I had an interesting veal marsala, reduction was great

After a long hard days working, stopped at Ruffino's, atmosphere was relaxing. Lasagna was great, bread hot and very good. Wait staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Will definitely be back next trip.

This is a nice little place we stopped at for lunch. Service was pretty good, food came out fairly quick. Restaurant was clean, pizza was good, could have been cooked a little longer but not bad.

Did not expect to find an Italian Place with this much taste and quality in Liberal. Their food was excellent, my wife had eggplant and I had Marsala - both were prepared perfectly. Overall good menu with the important Italian options and good drink selections. Had a relatively new waiter ut he provided great service. Definitely worth a stop, I... More
