This place was recommended to us by our landlord. Given that da Ruggero is in the Oltrarno away from the madding crowd of Florence Disney I expected to hear some Italian here, however, the place was filled with mostly tourists. The entrees arrived within moments of being ordered: tripe (delicious according to our carnivorous friends), stuffed tomatoes which were very... More

This place was recommended to us by our friends that live in Florence. It's a charming little trattoria that serves true Tuscan food. I came here with my husband and two kids for lunch. We walked here from the city center but definitely worth the trip. We ordered many different dishes and they were all excellent. They also had a... More

Whenever my husband sees pork chops on the menu, he orders them. And often he is disappointed when they are tough or dry or both. So when we read reviews that Trattoria Ruggero had an excellent chop, we decided to go even though our apartment was on the opposite side of town. It was worth it! He declared it was... More

First of all, you must book as it's a small and very popular restaurant, although a bit out of the way on the Siena road outside the Porta Romana. very happy discovery. We had a HUGE meal (portion sizes are generous, in future we'd share a starter) of green chicory and anchovy salad (me) and asparagus tagliatell (partner) The latter... More

We stayed just up the road and went here on our last night. Wish we had went on our first night as the meal was superb. The best pork chops we've ever had! Our waiter was fantastic and spoke brilliant English. Highly recommend this restaurant for anyone in the area.

As they told us, they are "Antico" style. Typical food, local one, simple one, good one. Good spot to have a simple and tasty break and enjoy the moment with some friends or family. A 4 and not a 5 because prices are a bit expensive and desserts are not at the level of the rest.

Was recommended to us by a local, we were positively surprised. Excellent, proper Italian food at great price (wine too). No tourists there - staff spoke no English - a rare thing in overcrowded Florence.

This was our favorite new find on our last trip to Florence. Both of the pastas we ordered- a pasta with white truffles and one with spicy noodles were fantastic and tasted like home cooking (in the best sense) The restaurant was a little out of the way and the service was a bit gruff, but we loved the food...
