As I recently wrote about, we stayed in Connellsville in southwestern Pennsylvania and used it as our base to visit the many wonderful sights around there—for example, Frank Lloyd Wright houses, the Laurel Highlands, the Flight 93 Memorial.

Connellsville is not very big but is an interesting city on the Youghiogheny River (how do you pronounce that?!), with a couple of good places to eat or stop for a drink or cup of coffee. One is Hutch, which I wrote about before. Another is Ruvos, which serves good food and highlights the strong Italian influence around here (see an earlier post).

We could walk to Ruvos from our hotel, so we decided to do that one evening. It offers a large menu, but we discovered is not licensed. However, you can BYOB, so Rod walked back to the hotel and brought a bottle of wine. This is not a big restaurant inside, although there is a large seating area outside, unused that night as it was raining heavily.

The décor is Italian-inspired, with posters—notably of Frank Sinatra in Italy—and photos, many of the owner’s family in Italy. One of the young servers told us he was the owner’s nephew and we heard a little of the Italian history of the family.

So, it came as no surprise that the menu offered all kinds of typical (in our opinion) Italian-style dishes. We chose a number of different ones to share between the three of us, as that way we could get a taste of more. Good plan.
