There is a reason Ruggero's Italian Restaurant stays number one here in Flint, and that is because the food is ALWAYS good. I've eaten here a few times in the last few years, and my order always comes out right. I usually order one of the baked pasta dishes and they are always cooked just the way I like them.

This latest time, I tried the hot Italian sub with cottage fries, based on one of the reviews here on Tripadvisor, and the reviewer was absolutely right. This is a great sub sandwich! Kudos!

My wife ordered the deluxe baked lasagna, she gave me a taste, and that was very good also.

The Focaccia bread served at dinner is excellant with the olive oil (on the table), and balsamic vinegar (ask for it).

I've never tried any desserts here, because there is too much food to eat.

Ruggero's, you deserve to be in Flint's top 10 restaurants!

Having traveled the world, I found that the food here was moderate, at best. Sure, the portion sizes are ample, the service and ambiance are incredible, but the food and it's preparation made the visit lack-luster, at best.

My family has been eating here for over 30 years and Ruggero's never disappoints! Their hot sub with cottage fries is my all-time favorite. Every year when I come back for a visit I have to have at least two!
Other fav's are their baked pasta dishes with meat sauce, pizza (either personal or regular sizes), and deluxe lasagna. The building is starting to show it's age and could use a refresh. BUT the staff is always friendly, the food is always good, and the restaurant is always clean.
A must eat place!!

Ruggero's has been a long-time staple in the Flint restaurant community. Really good food with outstanding (and very large) salads. Their Domani Dijon Chicken Salad is wonderful....and if you are a bacon-lover, you will come back for more! Lasangna is the best in town and make sure you order the focaccia bread! Deserts include a very nicely done canolli. Ambiance - about as much as you might find in Flint...but - comfortable and the staff are always helpful. If you are planning to have lunch and are on a tight schedule - make sure you let your waitress know. Ruggero's will not rush you along during your meal! We have used their catering service many times for large business lunches - always impressed!
