In addition to a wide choice of great value food, enjoy the friendly welcome, professional service,the spacious airy room, and unique waterside location. An oasis indeed in a densely populated urban area - a consistent family favourite of ours for many years.

Visited one Friday afternoon for lunch with work colleagues, we work close by so thought we'd give it ago, and safe to say that's the only time we'll probably go! On arrival we were greeted by quite a pretentious Italian man, with all the usual Italian phrases being thrown around the place - "bonjourno", "mamma mia" etc. Meal was ok,... More

I have visited this restaurant twice before and have enjoyed it both times, so was pleased that my husband had booked it for Valentines night. It was a set menu at £45 each which included a 3 course meal and a glass of prosecco on arrival. We were seated and given our prosecco and the menu which was very limited.... More

We had a retirement party here on December 12th. The restaurant was packed for the Elvis Night (the "Elvis" was excellent by the way). Service was slow, but then it was very busy. Antipasti was OK but portions could have been a bit bigger. After the antipasti, the main course was a complete surprise - superb quality food, very good... More

Christmas meal menu pretty average. Pate' very smooth and watery vs a good thick and "hard to spread" offering. Mains of salmon and prawns very nice (although the prawns were quite invisible in terms of quantity!) Staff a bit too brusque once they had fed you. Lots of theatre to start with then as you were nearing the coffee stages... More

First impressions were good - smart décor, just right for an intimate meal. However, the service badly lets the place down. Firstly, the guy in charge is very OTT with his Italian - I found it a little patronising, as if 'I'm talking all this Italian in case you don't understand you're in an Italian restaurant'. Secondly, although he's backed... More

I was here the other day for a business lunch. Their 2 course lunch menu offers a great choice and at a reasonable price. The service was good with few delays

My family of 10 went to Rucola for Sunday lunch. The food was plentiful, and the service excellent. Many tables were taken but nicely spaced, and the atmosphere was lively and comfortable. It was my brother's birthday which was made special by a free sweet containing a lighted firework. My sister in law said that she would like her birthday... More
