Ruggero's Wading River
Great food at a great price. Can’t wait for it to be warm enough to dine on the back patio. Just what this area needed!
Food not worth the cost. Calamari tough, marinara sauce bland, steak okay. Not accommodating, unable to put my son and his crutches in a booth. Waiter unenthusiastic.
Beautiful atmosphere, very pretty place and great ambiance. Servers were so pleasant too.
I would return and bring friends.
Service was great as were the drinks. It would be nice to not have to pay for a side with the entrée.
Food and service always wonderful
This was our first experience but NOT our last!
Jake did a great job as our server for 14 people on a Monday evening. We had a choice between complete dinner or family style and chose family style. We dines on walnut, apple and cheese salad, Caesar salad, calamari, fried mozzarella, chicken francese, eggplant parmigiana, penne ala vodka, meatballs and pappardelle noodles with shredded meat. Everything was presented hot, delicious and plentiful. They sang happy Birthday while delivering a few brownie sundaes and cannoli's. YUMMY!
Food was very good. Portions very large. Good value. Service was ok. Sat a large loud table next to us when there was ample space elsewhere for the group and they were LOUD. Only real negative
Great atmosphere and delicious food! Family size portion was great!
We've been here twice before and have had great experiences. This time was a little less great. The staff was very accommodating when we asked to stay at the bar past our reservation time and everyone was very friendly. It was six o'clock on a Saturday and the place was bustling. There was only one bartender though, and the drinks took awhile; he was hustling but he should have had help. When it came time to be seated they wanted to put us in the raised seating area, which was being blasted with the setting sun. People were shading their eyes as they ate! Why aren't there blinds on those doors? We declined a table there and said we'd wait for the other dining room. The hostess was very gracious and we sipped our drinks for a little bit and then were seated. We had ordered apps at the bar and they brought them to the table for us, and they were great. The entrees were good, but it was 20 minutes after the appetizer plates were cleared before we got them. The Caesar salad was blah, though, and there wasn't enough dressing. Our waiter, Damien, was terrific though. Yes, we will go back. It was a busy time on a busy night and they seemed a little short-staffed, so we're not going to cross it off on just one not-as-great-as-before experience.
Family style plates , excellent apps and entres, and service from Lauren was even better.
Service was great. Wait staff attentive and fun. Food delicious and plentiful. Really a nice place.
Most disgusting food ever if I could give a 0 I would don’t waste your money chicken is chewy and seafood was fishy

Great food and service! Large portions so plenty to share.
Experience was good. Food was amazing
We went with friends, it was amazing. The food was excellent as well as service. Best chicken francese I've ever had. Can't wait to go back.
The food was good, the side of pasta was not enough for the family size dish. But the service was not the greatest. The waiter did not come by to see how the food was or if we needed anything after it came out.
Food was so amazing. Fresh and cooked to perfection. Our waiter was friendly and the service was prompt and professional.
We had gone a few weeks ago and loved it so we recommended it to our friends. We ordered the fried mozzarella balls and Caesar salad as appetizers. The fried mozzarella balls had a fish taste to them (perhaps fried in the same oil as you do fish menu items). For our main course we ordered chicken Marsala, cavatelli with meatballs and a side of spinach. The chicken cutlets were too thick and the Marsala gravy was lacking flavor. The cavatelli dish was fine. The meatballs were delicious. The spinach was outstanding but the portion size was too small. Overall, our first dining experience was more enjoyable food wise. I would recommend making your chicken cutlets thinner. I would also add the chicken special we had the first time we dined there to your regular menu (fried chicken cutlets, arugula, fresh mozzarella, tomatoes and a balsamic glaze). It was delicious.
I've been to Ruggero's 3 times & I've had chicken francaise everytime. Unfortunely this time it wasn't as good as usual, I was very disappointed.
Hello Maxine, my name is Raymond I am the general manager here at Ruggero's. I am incredibly sorry that the chicken francese was not acceptable this evening. We strive to provide a delicious and consistent product and I am disappointed that your dish did not meet the normal standards. I would like to further discuss the details of your visit if you could please give me a call at your convenience. Our telephone number is 631-886-1625.
Food was just ok - not worth the drive or the expense
First visit to Ruggero's on Sat, Feb 10th. Delightful evening.. Food was delicious. The eggplant was better than my Grandmothers, who was the best cook I ever knew! Aside from outstanding food and ambience, our waiter, Dario, was so pleasant and professional. He was very attentive and he made us laugh. We will be back if Dario can be our waiter. : )
What an awesome experience! I went this weekend with my best friend. Phenomenal food and our waitress, Susan B was so friendly and attentive. She gave awesome recommendations for appetizers, entrees and dessert to order. I will definitely be returning, and hopefully she will be our waitress again!
Everything was fresh, high quality ingredients, generous portions and attentive friendly service.
