Rugerri's is our favorite place for special occasions. This was my wife's birthday. A family owned restaurant that will always treat you special. The staff is the best. I had their Lasagna and it will melt in your mouth. Every dish was cooked to perfection. My wife had Snapper, my daughter in law Tenderloin and my son had Salmon. Everyone... More

We enjoyed a late dinner on a Saturday night. The live music was especially nice with the the piano player quietly playing in the background. The bread is perfect with a nice crust. We enjoyed the lasagna and the veal saltimbocca.

Went to Ruggeri's with a group on Saturday night. We were pleasantly surprised. It was very good food and service. I love italian food and this was the best veal parm I've had in years. I asked to sub Capellini for Spaghetti. Regulars started pouring in around 7PM. I can see why they keep coming back. Everyone in our group... More

We enjoyed a wonderful Sunday brunch at Ruggeri's with impeccable service and delicious food. The wait staff is very old fashioned and attentive and the food was prepared and presented with perfection. Dessert was wonderful and excellent cappuccino as well. Very old world, old school experience. Sit back and relax.

If your thing outstanding Italian food should be served in dimly lit traditional Italian restaurants with Frank Sinatra crooning in the background this should be the plac for you. I realize that August in Dallas is tough for restaurants, but there was one couple when we came and one when we left---that was it! It was annoying to be seated... More

Food is Allright but not quite good. Service is poor. Do nor rely on prices on the menu as they charge you a different and higher price when they give you the bill. Do not rely on prices on the Web page as they are higher in the menu and when they give you the bill. Will not be going... More

If looking for a quick in and out this might not be the place. If looking to relax and unwind then don't miss Ruggeri's. Wednesday nights enjoy live music while you dine which starts around 6:30. My favorites are the chicken entrees (Parmesan and Christina) but the fish and pastas are delicious too. Nice salads to start and the wine... More

If you want to indulge in what I call quintessential southern Italian/American cuisine you can't get better food anywhere in Dallas. Tom has been at this for quite a while and knows only quality food will bring you back time and time again. Never a disappointment.
