Great little restaurant just on the out-skirts of Florence centre. Well worth the walk from the centre in an evening. Fantastic Pork Chop - the best I've ever had - worth ordering! No complaints about the service, or the food - recommended.

Booked by phone a few days before and had a fantastic dinner. The pork chop is tender and delicious and the roast beef perfectly cooked. A very memorable meal - served a little quickly though so take your time ordering!

Wow! If you want authentic, homemade Italian food - this is your place. Slightly out of the centre (not a bad thing) but WELL worth the trip. An amazing staff who were more than willing to help two foreigners with no grasp of Italian understand the menu. The pork is just absolutely sensational; as is the roast beef. This aren't... More

We picked this restaurant as it was (in theory) very close to where we were staying and had good reviews. However, it wasn't easy to find as the location on TripAdvisor (opposite the Villa Roma) was incorrect. Fortunately two local boys saw us looking puzzled at the property at address Via Senese 89r and explained that it was further down... More

We were on the tail end of our three week tour of Rome, Umbria and Florence so had many dining experiences. This small, out-of-the way trattoria was our favorite. The food was traditional Tuscan, nothing fancy but delicious and plentiful. Must try the house special roasts, but be prepared to loosen your belt. Ivan our server was a gem, explaining... More

Never in a million years would i think of ordering roast beef at a restaurant, but I'm so glad I did. It was delicious! Everything was wonderful at this restaurant. My waiter was incredibly nice, he even brought me a stuffed tomato without charge after I asked what he had just brought over to another table. I recommend making a... More

This place is very small, but it feels homey. It is packed but by the time we got there (really late at night) some tables were available. Everything we tried was good, and good prices too.

My husband and I ate at Trattoria Ruggero on our last evening in Florence. The waiters were so kind and pleasant and our meal was DELICIOUS! The evening was topped off with some chocolate cake and limoncello - wow!! Thank you! :)

ウィッツ美術館とか川を渡ったところの方が美味しい店がたくさんあるらしいですがイタリア旅行中一番美味しかった店がここでした!店員もすごく親切✨是非是非お薦めです!また予約なしだと難しいかもですね。来てた人予約なしはみんな断られてました。予約はホテルの人にとってもらうのが一番だと思います! The restaurant is the most delicious restaurant in Italy! Good food, Nice stuff!
