Perfectly located in the core of the city, La Rucola offers a wide range of quality meals from Italy (mostly) and the rest of Western Europe. The wine menu is awesome, the service is great, but I would say that La Rucola is a little bit overrated. The food is good, but I won't say great, because it's a little... More

The service here was great. The ham platter was good with 4 different types of ham the capacio was delicious and fresh. The pasta was average. Didn't order a pizza so cannot comment on that. The place was busy and atmosphere was good. Good variety of wines on the list but by the glass only one red and one white.... More

I love to have dinner in here. Cozy place, Romantic ambience, Nice food and good service. My fave menu in here were pizza, spaghetti arabiata and warm choco cake so yummy and mouthwatering. Never getting bored had dinner in here with friends and couple. The price was quite good and affordable for Italian Resto.

Definitely a romantic spot. With a decent dresscode. I only saw pics of food and went in unsuspected. Shorts, shirts, running shoes. They have wine ranging to the millions, great variation of pasta n pizza, the selection is crazy (but just 1 type of soup). Overall : dont come in like i did (4.50 pm, alone in the resto). And...

We ate there nearly every time we were in the city while living nearby. Very good appetizers, and the seafood w/ angel hair pasta is fantastic. Best pizzas in Surabaya, and a good bar. Very busy later, should make a reservation. The owner is usually in the kitchen overseeing the preparation, and we never had any less than very good... More

In total it was a big disaster. It already started with the drinks. I ordered a Hefeweizen. The glass was dirty and the beer was expired. The staff was so kind to change it to a glass red wine. For starter we ordered bruschetas and carpachio. Bruschetas lower quality but the carpachio was quiet ok. For main course we ordered... More
