Closter Plaza may be sporting a new look and new stores, but Rudy's remains with great Italian food and friendly service. Countless visits and never disappointed.

Pizza is delicious, Rudi's special chopped salad is great, unfortunately, the food is just mediocre at best.

We were seated immediately on a busy Sunday eve, but it took much to much time before a waiter approached our table to bring drinks and take an order. Hopefully, this was the exception to the rule. However, the food was very good, the prices are fair, the place is clean and family friendly and the décor pleasant. TIP: Phone... More

We came here with another couple and were seated quickly. The new location is large and has many booths and tables. We started with the Rudy's special salad, chopped. It was fresh and tasted very good. For entrees two of us ordered chicken Annabella, which had prosciutto, chicken in franchese sauce, and shrimp. It was decent, but we were expecting... More

I have been going to Rudy's, at least once a week, since I moved to Closter 11 years ago. The food is consistently delicious, and the staff members are simply the BEST!

We have been going to Rudy's for over 30 years. The food and service are top notch. We have also used their catering numerous times. Deliveries have always been on time and the food excellent. We have never been disappointed.

Newly renovated with same great food. Best pizza and Italian food. We held a baptismal party There and they did a fabulous job- Service and food couldn't have been better. We Moved away from the area in 1980 and Rudys is always a first stop when visiting.

Have been here lots of times more so at the old location. The main Restaurant is more attractive though. Service was friendly but they seemed overwhelmed & took awhile to get water or just see a server. Food was just OK not like I remember it. Pizza was the best part of the meal.

Rudys has been serving up the best Italian food & pizza for over four decades now. Charlie and Fred (brothers) are an institution in this area. Whether you order in or out you're guaranteed the best quality food. Authentic as it comes, you'll always come back no matter from how far away.

Love the house dressing on the salads! Rudy's special salad is delicious. It's a bit pricy, but the food is fresh and the taste is consistent. Family friendly and kids friendly. Been to this place since I was youngster!
