Ruchetta at Peppard has closed and new owners are awaited. Ruchetta in Wokingham is still in business.

Visited this gem for a birthday meal with family. Choice was great. Fantastic flavours. Great wines and warm and welcoming atmosphere. All plates totally cleared. Waiters polite and courteous. Will certainly be back soon. Thank you for a memorable evening.

Food here is nothing special. I had the veal, which was salty to the point of being inedible. The vegetables served with it were greasy and salty. My husband ordered a steak, which was good but overcooked. The restaurant was practically empty when we visited but service was still really slow

We generally have a rule of 'never go back', but our daughter convinced us to break it to celebrate her birthday...good call. Once again we had an outstanding meal, prepared with care and precision, backed up by well timed and thoughtful service. Angelo's passion as an experienced restauranteur is apparent. Between us we ate from the specials of the day... More

We had the most fantastic fish barbecue yesterday (Sunday). Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavours were mouthwatering. Having visited Ruchetta during the week and had the most amazing meal, we did not think it could be equalled, but it was!!! The service was excellent and the staff very attentive and polite. It was lovely to sit outside in... More

Ruchetta is the perfect local Italian restaurant. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the food is excellent (a little rich but Italian food usually is!) and the atmosphere is wonderful and so relaxed. We sat outside in their garden and were transported to Italy.. Italian wine, grissini, warm weather, red checkered table cloths, olive trees and wonderful Italian food.... More

My wife and I stopped by for the Sunday fish BBQ and we are so glad we did. There is a set menu but don't worry it's all fresh and delicious. The food was served quickly and the staff were fun. There was a really relaxed feel about the place with lots of families around, almost like being on holiday!... More

A lucky find on a perfect summer's evening. Saw umbrellas in the the garden of Ruchetta having just escaped the bustle of Henley on a Regatta Saturday and decided to give it a try. Wow - beautifully crafted food by a kitchen that clearly cares and great service. Goats cheese (with an amazing onion marmalade, spicy sausage and mushroom risotto,... More
