First be aware that this restaurant does pizza take away. Secondly avoid Saturday evenings. We arrived 8pm on Saturday after a long trip.There was a queue for the take away and obviously a large party booked in. Shown to small table sandwiched between bar where people order take away and door to where espresso machine is kept. Should have left... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our 60year old driver, and we did not get disappointed. Lovely casual service, great food for a good "friend of Giuseppe(the driver)" price

simple but very tasty food. Try the clava turca. It is a very special pizza with openings like some pastry filled with tasty cheese, sausage and herbs

We only stayed for one night as our flight left early from Palermo but what a wonderful stay none the less. Still in possession of the hire car presented a challenge in both parking & negotiating the Monreale streets - we eventually left the car 'down the hill' a bit but in reality it was more of an abandon for...

After a whole day of driving from Agrigento to Palermo we decided to spend the night in Monreale. Being out of season the place was very calm at night, but our stomachs weren't. Being in the mood for some more local food in an easy setting we found Locanda Re Ruggero. Inside some table were occupied by tourists, but we... More

Friendly and polite staff, delicious local cuisine, good wine, and comfortable atmosphere near the Duomo of Monreale. If you have a room for stay upstairs of the restrant, it must be perfect. (B&B available)

We were in Monreale ending our holiday in Sicily and were looking for somewhere to get real food for our last day. We stumbled across Locanda Re Ruggero after looking at a number of other restaurants and were really impressed by the food, service and ambiance. We shared caponata to start which was very subtle in its flavours, followed by... More
