Via Senese is not a pretty street and it's away from the hub of central Florence, south and west of Ponti Vecchio. You may be better getting a taxi. It's not walkable. And you will probably need to book - this place is popular with...More

In all my years of traveling I have a hard time thinking of a place where I received a worse reception from the owner. We arrived 15/20 min. late for our 8:00 pm reservation and were greeted not with a hello and maybe a gentle...More

It seems like it is becoming increasingly necessary to trek to the edges of a large Italian city to find real cooking. And so it is with Trattoria Ruggero, a hike past Porta Romana and so worth the effort. Really, really good traditional fare here....More

What a great experience. The food was simple, flavorful, plentiful, and inexpensive. We were the only non-locals in the room. The hand-written menu was a challenge to our rudimentary Italian language skills...so it came as a relief that our waiter spoke near-perfect English. Memorable dishes...More

I went to this restaurant because of the high rating in TripAdvisor. I was very disappointed, I order two dishes a pasta (so-so) and a second dish. The one I order was not available and they offered me an alternative from the menu. Not good...More

Ruggero offers a rustic Tuscan cuisine, fast service, good honest food, but it lacks presentation. Busy with lots of Italian customers, which is always a good sign. Friendly waiter who could explain the dishes and recommended choices for both food and wine. Enjoyed the experience...More

I called the restaurant for booking (there is a staff who speaks English very well) but you can ask your hotel desk to make a reservation for the restaurant.
