Ruggero’s Ristorante (Fort Lauderdale)
***** Ruggero’s Ristorante, 2701 East Oakland Park Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33306, (954) 396-0930.
Real simple tale to tell you guys, last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats attended a “Media Dinner” at Ruggero’s Ristorante which opened 3 weeks ago!
Something like- 25 maybe 30 “media types” eating on the arm and I gotta tell you, the served- brusquettea alla burratina, insalata fruition di mare, melanzane napoletana, pappardelle, rigatoni alla bologense, pollo scarpariello, veal scallopini, tiramisu we’re all -right on the money (pun intended). Just between you guys and Jeff Eats the melanzane (eggplant stack), rigatoni alla bologense and the veal scallopini were off-the-chart delicious, as was the in-house freshly baked Italian bread- Jeff Eats used to sop-up the various sauces with!
For the record, Ruggero’s isn’t a $15.95 soup or salad/entree/pasta side/garlic knots- mom & pop red sauce Italian joint. Separate full bar area, white table cloths, real-pro wait staff. By the way, Jeff Eats is thinking that you won’t need a second job to pay the bill and that your tee shirt/shorts/flip flop ensemble works- if that’s the way you want to play it!
Like I said, “on the arm”- that said, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats were so impressed with the food and service, that we both agreed, comp or no comp- we would definitely recommend Ruggero’s to friends and make plans to eat there again!
