“Lovely lunch”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Stumbled across this place one lunch time with my wife and went in for the lunch menu, £16.50 from memory for a three course lunch with a glass of wine. Food was delicious, Creme brulee superb, and the service was great. Will definitely go again

“Quiet meal in tired building.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

After the reception lady finished her hand of solitaire on her computer we were given menus and a drink in the very tired looking lounge. I've felt more atmosphere in an old people's home.
Food was well prepared, tasty but not great value. I still find it baffling why I can't apply my own Parmesan and black pepper. I promise I'll get it on my plate!
Would return and to try the set menu. Thanks to the charming Italian waiter who excudes quiet confidence and natural skill.

“A very good Italian meal”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

While visiting Wells with family we sought somewhere to have liunch, and the Rugantino had a nice-looking menu at a very reasonable price. Service was friendly and helpful, with an excellent description of what was on offer. The four of us had different starters and main courses, and all were excellent. The pasta is prepared on site and could not be faulted. Portions were generous and piping hot. The house wine was very good.

We ate fairly early, and were at first almost alone, but by the time we finished the restaurant was full. It was clear that many of the diners were local - always a good sign! The atmosphere was cosy and charming. At a price of £10.95 for two courses or £13.95 for three this is fantastic value for money.

Treated my mum and 5 year old daughter to a lovely lunch. Have lunched at rugantino's a few times now and have never been disappointed. Lovely Italian food, great service and fantastic value for money. Well worth a visit.
