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.

    We had a very nice lunch here. There were 6 of us and we sat in the bright conservatory. The food as usual was very good though I felt I could have had a larger portion of pasta, I think portions may have shrunk. On the lower ground floor where the toilets are, I always feel a bit sorry for people sat near the toilet doors. The toilets themselves are OK.

    Perfect food in a nice atmosphere, feels like a "real Italian" - there is a reason why you have to book a table there.....
