SquareMeal Review of La Ruga

With its vibrant entrance and cheerful staff, this neighbourhood eatery is a welcome addition to Walthamstow.  A regularly changing menu (be sure to check the chalkboards) sees dishes such as red onion tart with ratatouille chutney join mussels in garlicky, white wine sauce as tempting starters. Follow with chargrilled sea bass or fillet of beef in a creamy mushroom sauce. To finish? Toffee bread, of course. And while there’s little compromise on portion size and quality of ingredients, prices remain reasonable – ideal for family gatherings or an impromptu romantic evening meal.

We had the hard task of booking a good resteraunt for our mum who is heavily in the know when it comes to good dining .we booked a table for 12 people at Trattoria la ruga on a saturday evening .All around this has to be the best italian resteraunt we have been to .unlike many places La ruga's service was amazing .We were taken through the menu perfectly by the very kind waiter.The food was 100 % as amazing as it sounded when explained to us before ordering.The waitresses helped with the children and taught one of the young ones how to peel prawns .I would recomend this place to anyone who appreciates quality traditional dining .Thanks to Trattoria la ruga for a great experience
