Description: It's true that you are what you eat, but it's just as important where you eat. Everyone knows that food tastes better when it's eaten in a pleasant atmosphere. Our menu offers authentic Italian cuisine, including wood-fired oven pizzas for true pizza lovers.

The pizza is pretty good. Thin, well cooked with a tomato non-acidic.
The service is fine. There is an army to work: fourteen people, divided between the dining room, the kitchen and in the nearby shop.
A demonstration that the restaurant usually works. As restaurant some doubts - in sincerity - for other dishes: pasta (a cheesy quality), the meat (fillet hard, below expectations) and the antipasti. Excellent desserts.
The interiors are simple, casual and quite nice: 40-45 seats on ground floor, other 30 in first floor, two large toilettes in first floor (a slight problem for person with handicap) and additional in summer a terrace.
The prices, with surprise, ar slightly higher considering the location. In particular, the appetizers. That confirm me that Rucola is an appreciate place, popular enought, that the management doesn't apply a sterile policy of "low price". Appreciable.
Bravi.

The service was excelent and food was good, but because it was a very popular the waithing time for pizza was one hour.
The Italian food we had was good. Afterwards we went to the store were they was selling Italian beer, vine and food to bring.

I like every single dish I have tried there. And I have tried many of them.
The pizza is good, and pasta is even better.
The price is fair.
The location is a bit out of the city, specially for tourists, but if you live in Tallinn or know anybody with a car, go. It worth.

I love Tallinn, unfortunately, here are few restaurants where the quality of the food is balanced with a reasonable price. This restaurant is the one where you find it - good food at a fair price! Even italians love Rucola's kitchen (proved by Italian friend of mine)!
If you are the fan of beef carpaccio, be sure to taste it here! Also pizza and pasta are great. In fact, everything from Rucola's menu is worth to taste. Therefore I have visited this restaurant many times again and again with family, friends and business partners.

Waited for Spagetti alla Marinara, Caesars salad and Margherita for 40 min, with that all is said. At least could give bread with olive oil to save clients from starving
