Generous portions of chicken parmigiana ($12.25), italian-sausage-stuffed lasagna ($11.50+), fettuccine alfredo ($12), and shrimp scampi ($16.50) fill out Ruggero’s menu. The staff also ladles fresh dough with housemade sauce for pizzas ($10.45+) and calzones ($5.25+) and piles sandwiches with fresh deli meats, chicken, and steak.
The menu at Ruggero’s offers a wide variety of Italian favorites: bruschetta, fettuccine alfredo, veal parmigiana, baked manicotti, chicken marsala, shrimp scampi, pizza, calzones, and seven varieties of lasagna. Of course, the selection wouldn’t be complete without the country’s signature desserts making an appearance. Chefs pump cannolis with bavarian cream, slice espresso-flavored pieces of tiramisu, and serve spumoni—an Italian-style ice-cream cake with a nougat center.
Waiters bring this bounty of Italian food out to an elegant carpeted dining area where framed art hugs swirling green wallpaper. Wide sconces blend their photons with the ones coming in through the front wall’s windows, and a fireplace casts warmth on guests. Adjacent to a row of padded booths stands a full bar, rife with liquor and enough sleekly stained wood cabinets to make Paul Bunyan cry an actual river.
