Rucoletta, St Paul’s | Review
Rucoletta is a cute little Italian restaurant in the heart of St Paul’s.
We had a deal from Groupon, £20 for a 3-course meal for two. Isn’t that great?! We ordered Crostone alla Pizzaiola and Bruschetta for starters, pan fried seabass and strozzapreti amatriciana for mains and tiramisu for dessert.
So how was the food?
The starters were delicious, both were wonderfully flavoured and the tomatoes were fresh. It was a good sized dish, a perfect palette cleanser. The mains were equally good but not amazing. The pasta dish was cooked al dante and covered in cheese, which was yum. The fish needed a little more salt to help reach utter deliciousness, but it was nice and flakey and not fishy. Last but not least, the tiramisu, our waitress hyped this dessert up so much we HAD to try it. It was my first time trying a tiramisu so I wasn’t sure what to expect but the sponge was nice and soft and the flavour of the espresso was prominent but not heavy. It had a slight bitter taste but it wasn’t unpleasant, the creaminess of the entire dish helped to soften and sweeten the dessert.
The ambience of the restaurant is really nice and staff are super friendly. They’re all so attentive and take really great of you.
I would highly recommend Rucoletta.
Till my next eat x
