This gets as close to my grandmothers cooking as I could wish for. Perfectly executed Florentine cuisine in the traditional style. Everything in harmony. If you weren't brought up in the 50s and 60s by an inspired professional cook, it might not be to your liking.

Ate here twice, I'm in the restaurant business and this place nails it. Service, food and ambiance. I recommend making reservations. You can "sneak" in early without one.

We headed to this restaurant, a bit outside of the centre of Firenze, because of its good reviews and recommendation by Lonely Planet. Even though the restaurant was empty, we were seated next to the toilet. No English menu's available but the friendly waiter translated most of the dishes for us. Only a few minutes after ordering we already got... More

My husband and I had dinner at this place at the recommendation of our B&B host, Elena of Fiorenza B&B, and we were not disappointed. We had a spot of trouble getting to the place and only managed to find it with the help of some kind locals who pointed us in the right direction. The food and service were... More

Da Ruggero serves excellent Tuscan cuisine 2km from the center of Florence. I began with a lovely plate of taglierini with cepes. If my stomach had not been a little on edge, I would have ordered the garlicky spaghetti all carretteria. I'll make that a my house soon. My arista (rosemary-infused pork chop) was perhaps a best pork chop ever.... More

Ruggero is very nice place where you can find delicious traditional Italian food. The atmosphere and the service was very cool. And I probably had the best crem caramel ever in this place.

My wife had their chicken dinner...simple but tasty. She was not as impressed. Their pork chops were the best. Lots of locals eat there...for a good reason!

Service was ok. Seafood was not available, so service man recommended Pasta with spicy sauce without showing alternatives. Pork was good but why the hell have I to pay 12 euro for pork only (no sauce) and 7 euro for beans as side dish. Come on! The prices are ridiculous and impertinent for food (quality and visuals) I would expect... More
