Great authentic Italian food that's been a favorite of locals for decades.

I first went to Ruggero on a family trip to Firenze on my first visit to Italy more than 10 years ago. Years later, while visiting friends who live in Florence, they took me here and the food was just as good. It's really authentic Italian food and tastes as if someone's grandmother made it.

Da Ruggero is hard to find...if you don't look closely you'll miss it...but it's definitely worth making the effort. It is a bit out of the way but still a fairly easy walk from the center. It's low-key, authentic tuscan food. Definitely recommend checking it out...

We wanted somewhere to eat near our hotel on our first night and used the ' restaurants near you' facility on my mobile Tripadvisor app and Ruggero was the best reviewed nearby. The food was perfectly adequate - I'm not sure we chose that well but sadly they had run out of my wife's choice so she had a cold... More

The place looks like a typical trattoria italiana, with good local pastas. For me it was really nice to go there because it´s not so far from the hotel Villa Beldevere where I spent my weekend. I recommend the trattoria if you are nearby

My husband and I love this place and go here for special occasions, not because it's fancy or expensive, but just because it's such good food and such a nice night out. Menu changes regularly. Love their truffle dishes and ovoli mushroom dishes. Tuscan antipasti are great, especially liver crostini. Service is fast and excellent. Crowded so best to make... More

Whatever you try is made to order and the ingredients are farm fresh. Try their Spaghetti alla carrettiera (carter's style). Porcini mushrooms on the grill. Veal chop. Grilled stuffed tomatoes. The house wine is also good.
