I’ve been here several times. I can’t say I come back because it’s an outstanding place - I honestly find the space too open and not cosy. Nor it’s a fantastic value for money. But we usually come when we are in the neighbourhood and...need to have a stable quality food and pretty fast. Parking right in front is a huge plus. The service is also always very nice. Pizzas are much better than pastas, I also find a beer choice to be better than the wine one.More

Great place, wide selection of pizza and other dishes. Adapted for kids - they have small baby corner and quite good baby menu 👍🏻 Nice and cordial staff, great food and cozy atmosphere. Recommended for the calm family evening

I would say best pizzeria in Tallinn. It’s a bit far from city centre but worth the ride. Service is always best! Rucola has daily offers ;)

We made the reservation for six on the same day. It was a hot friday evening so it was approximately half resrved. The service was very friendly and everything went fast and smooth. The menus were easy to understand and the waiters gave us answers...when ew had questions. The food was ready in 15-20 minutes. The kids had their own menu.More

I visited this place for a second time during 6 months. Last time i was there i remember being really really amazed of how good the food was. Now we went there for a family birthday dinner. Everything was really tasty yet again! We had...carpaccio for starter and different main courses (did not try pastas or pizzas tho i have heard that they are really good also). Only our chocolate fondants were a bit underdone so quite runny and hard to eat. But they tasted good still! Interiour is quite cozy. Service attendive. Prices a bit over the mid range but worth it. Will defenitly and cant even wait to visit again!More

One of the best pizza and pasta places in Tallinn. Best things aren't always in the city centre. Great atmosphere you can eat there or order with you. Wood oven kitchen makes sure you have best pizzas and the atmosphere is simple but cosy. Small...terrace in summer and you can buy Italian groceries and wines with you. Recommend and during the weekends it is good to book table before as it is quite busy.More

Lovely atmosphere! Friendly staff. Good food. Reasonable value. Arrived without a booking on a busy evening- but they squeezed us in. Thank you.

We'we been visiting this restaurant once a year. We have good experiences from here. This time they succeeded ok, but no more. I took frutti di mare pizza and my choosed frutti di mare pasta. Now, the pizza was ok - meaning that the base...was crisp. What I didn't like was the excess use of tasteless chese. Even though there were (four) mussels and few shrimps, there were so much salmon, that they should name this one as 'salmon pizza'. It was not bad, but it was not what I expected either. The other funny thing was that my wifes pasta had exactly the same ingerdients - no more, no less. Practically they were the same food. Somehow this visit at Rucola left us a bit disappointed. Hope they manage little better next time.More

I am very confused as to why this place was packed and also has such a good rating here. Did we visit on a bad day?? Firstly I want to say the service was great. But the food, man...my pizza was entirely flavourless. I have...had almost the same pizza with same toppings (slight variation maybe) at another place and that was the best pizza I've had possibly ever. At Rucola, it was pretty much the worst. And the price was double of what it should have been (€14). Same with my partner's meal. Bland, boring, and well overpriced. To us it seemed like this place was great about 5 years ago (the award signs on the wall) but now...the food honestly was a total waste of money. If the whole menu was 50% off I maybe would understand. At least I wouldn't be so disappointed. But we thought the menu sounded great, prices are such that you expect decent flavorful food, and instead we got served a lousy bland canteen meal. Not recommending and not returning.More
