A neat, tucked away restaurant. I took an old friend for lunch and the restaurant was very busy and lively.
The Staff team were very polite, helpful and prompt, even though it was busy. Lunch was delicious and the portions just right. We both really enjoyed it and have promised to return.

Yet another excellent dinner at Rucoletta. The place is not particularly fancy, but the dishes are superb. They clearly produce their pasta themselves and cook it to a perfect 'al dente' bite (sadly, this can be rare to find in London). I enjoy the rotating fish and meat specials, while my vegetarian spouse almost always gets the exact same pasta dish that we have not found duplicated anywhere else (long, but thick, noodles -- chewy and yummy!)
In addition to the food, one of the best things about this small, convenient, restaurant is the welcoming and helpful staff. It's a joy to see them every time we go (which is at least monthly, we like it so much).

The restaurant was a lovely? Secluded little space with an airy area upstairs under a large skylight.
The service was swift, friendly and efficient.
The food was all amazing particularly the starters, with a very authentic Italian feel to every part of the experience.
We had no complaints about any part of the experience!
