We’ve been serving the best Italian cuisine at Rugantino since 1974. The perfect dining experience for a special occasion. Rugantino’s is a small, intimate restaurant. It has a lovely atmosphere and gets extremely busy at times which all adds to the ambience and character
A true Italian experience started by Franco Rossi who hails from Assisi in Umbria (known as the green heart of Italy due to its central location east of Tuscany and its abundance of green hills) and is now run by his two sons Jon & Nick.
We specialise in Italian cuisine, with plenty of pasta and pizza options. We use the finest ingredients locally when we can and also import the best Italian products and wine. We use a wide variety of pasta shapes, and fresh homemade sauces to compliment each dish. we also have a good variety of meat and fish dishes, plenty of vegetarian options, vegan options and we are very mindful of people’s dietary requirements.
