Disappointing Valentines Night

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... read 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

This place lives up to its expectations every time. Always a friendly welcome, always excellent service. We've never been in the evenings, but lunchtimes there is always a nice atmosphere. But most importantly, the food is great. Sometimes its easy to cross off a restaurant from your list because it doesn't tick all the right boxes - Rucola has remained... More

This is the first time in my life; I have even felt that aggrieved by the utter poor standard of both service and poor food that I have felt the need to write a review. Every year for the past 3 years we as a family have visited this establishment to celebrate a family occasion. Whilst on other occasion the... More

My girlfriend and I had Sunday lunch here yesterday, and was taken by surprise by the quality of the food. We booked it as we were heading to an event in Wembley and this was on the way. The two course Sunday lunch for £13 is exceptional value for money, I had lasagne to start and tuna steak for my... More

Ridiculously over priced for average food. Stingy portions. We felt completely ripped off. On a positive side, the staff were friendly and professional.
