A chic family-run Italian eatery in the heart of the City of London, Rucoletta Restaurant is moments from the iconic St Paul's Cathedral. Serving up classic and modern Italian treats, there is a stunning central skylight letting light flood in, and a great wine selection on offer.

Using the finest British and Italian produce, the Rucoletta Restaurant menu showcases recipes from all across Italy, with other international inspirations artfully added in. Rich flavours can be found in pasta delicacies like homemade fresh egg tagliatelle with veal meatballs, porcini and chestnut mushrooms, cream, chilli and parmesan, while the pan-fried lamb fillets are served in a walnut and pistachio crust. There are also lighter bites that are perfect to share, including salmon carpaccio served with micro herbs and quail eggs.

Indulgent Italian desserts at Rucoletta Restaurant in the City of London include classic tiramisu, with inventive options like a real orange shell filled with orange sorbet. There is also an extensive wine list that has been carefully put together to offer up the perfect accompaniment to any meal.

A celebrated example of fine Italian dining in London, Rucoletta Restaurant is in the heart of the City, with St Paul's Tube Station just a minute's walk away.

    The frontage is unassuming but the restaurant opens up inside to several spaces. We went at a very busy lunchtime but the service was excellent despite the quantity of covers. I had a delicately fried seafood starter which was delicious. My pasta with beef was excellent too. Everything was right with the experience.

    the food and service were good, my only regret is that despite booking the table well in advance, the table we were given for 3 people was barely sufficient for 2 people (a small square) which made dining awkward and necessitated the use of the window sill!

    Met a friend for lunch and the whole experience was very enjoyable. I had heard that this was a good restaurant and my visit confirmed all I had been told to be true.

    Food OK but nothing exceptional but service terrible which may have made food seem less good than it wa.

  • ((((( 23 December 2017 by Richard Adler from London

    I've been enjoying this restaurant for over 20 years off and on, tucked away just out of the gaze of St Paul's Cathedral and neatly placed for the local office community. It's a proper trattoria, that manages to deliver excellent italian food, wine and great service to very good restaurant standards.

    Welcome from the owner and his mostly italian staff is warm and personable. Highly recommended.
