GREAT OPTION

Wonderful food and service. It is a place with a short but varied menu, but what you order is prepared at the moment. You must make a reservation, otherwise you will not be attended.

Being recommended by friends and Hotel Classic nearby, we found local local Trattoria Ruggero. A bit early waiters swiftly cleared a table for us, no problem. Ordered the new asparagus starters and the largest Florentine possible, and you pay by weight - 42€ pr Kg. Absolutely stunningly grilled! This accompanied by a Brunello Castello Banfi at a steal for 40€.... More

We visited this trattoria twice during our stay in Florence. First time we walked in at 7:00pm and in shaky Italian there seemed to be an issue! They changed to good English and we found out that they were fully booked between 8:00-10:00. There is not a lot that side of the river so I pleaded hunger and and they... More

Once again , we were delighted by the Tuscan cuisine of Ruggero. Impeccable service (but familiar as well) - homemade dishes to die for, we always share the various pappa al pomodoro, ribollita, carrettiera...

After getting over our jet lag, my husband and I walked down to Trattoria Ruggero at the recommendation of the host at our bed and breakfast. What a delightful experience! The veal chop was by far the best I have enjoyed, and I have dined all over Europe and grew up going to the best restaurants in New York. This... More

This place is at its best when there are fresh mushrooms available- I have never eaten a better porcini salad. Yum... Great service and a kind atmosphere.

It's quite a hike from the tourist side of the Arno. But the white truffle pasta and the farinata con cavalo nero were worth the trek in the rain. Don't miss this.

We are endlessly grateful to the friend who sent us to da Ruggero -- otherwise we'd never have found it in its unlikely location on the road out of town. Then we saw how many people raved about this place. It's the food you dream of discovering. Simply. Perfect. Essential Tuscan food. The room is warm and welcoming, too. OK... More
