Ruffino's Ristorante Italiano, located in an upscale Fort Worth neighborhood, has been a hit since 1992. Business professionals, couples and students from Texas Christian University come to enjoy the low-lit ambience and elegant atmosphere. While you eat, brothers/owners Franco and Bobby Albanese will probably stroll by your table to get an off-the-cuff critique of your meal. House specialties include the salmon sciarpa (grilled salmon in puffed pastry with a lemon caper piccata sauce) and the portobello tower, which is packed with mushrooms, breaded eggplant, spinach and feta cheese, all layered to structure a 4-inch tower. Traditional Italian dishes shine as well, including the frutti di mare with linguine, shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams.
