SquareMeal Review of Rucoletta

Sitting in the shadow of St Paul’s Cathedral, family-run Rucoletta (formerly Rucola) has been delivering good, honest trattoria food for more than 30 years and still manages to satisfy. The sleek, modern dining room is pleasant enough (if a little ‘basic’), but charming service and ‘excellent’ cooking seal the deal. The kitchen makes its own pasta (try the semolina-based scialatielli or twisted trofie with squid, courgettes, white wine and lemon sauce), while mains might run from lamb shank with raisins, crispy leeks and Marsala sauce to cod on pesto mash with cherry-tomato salsa. Antipasti, risottos and traditional desserts such as tiramisu complete the offer. Set menus offer terrific value (£19.95 for three courses) and Rucoletta is open for lunch from 12-3pm then reopens for dinner at 5.30pm.

I found this unassuming place on Squaremeal, although I have walked past it a 100 times and never taken it in. However, once inside, the service is charming, the food has more flair than your average Italian and we didn't find it at all expensive. It compares very well to some of the flashier places in that part of the City.

Good food and service, quick turn around if you are pushed for time and good value to quality ratio. I have been half a dozen times in the last few months and the quality is always high, I appreciate the constant high standard.

Excellent value for money – enjoyed so much went back for lunch again the next day. Staff on the ball and very obliging. Food very tasty and well presented and arrived pronto. Noise levels can be quite loud but saying that it was still a good experience and well worth trying for a quick lunch if you haven't much time to spare.

My husband and I had dinner with the Groupon voucher and we were not disappointed at all. We were very impressed with the impeccable service and the food was very tasty. Rib eye steak to die for!!! We were definitely come back again and will savour their pasta dishes! Please try to open on a Saturday!! Thank you!

Everything the owner's descritption promises. Excellent food. Good service and very pleasant, if basic, surroundings. Certainly worth a visit and somewhere I will be returning.
