We have visited this resturant at least 20 times and never been disappointed, whether it's a steak, or lasagna(which is excellent) or seafood. We like to go early because it really gets busy as the night goes on. Our favorite thing to do is order a pizza for take away and have it for lunch...their pizza is fabulous!!

I cannot express how dissapointed I am in La Rucola. This used to be the place to go for European food and Italian food. I wrote a 5 star review of them and called them the best Italian restaurant in Surabaya. I am super dissapointed with the food and service. The spaghetti was so salty. The pizza was bland. The...

Proving what people said of this rest, straight away after working hour go with wife. 1. Service - Security, or no open car door service - From Host, escorted to table was okay - Waitress took order without repeating - Show plate did not take it out while food coming in, so we remove them due to tight space, some...

Several times ate here with business colleagues, overall it's great taste and nice ambience. The menus quite confusing, there are so many options for main course... But it's highly recommended

Rucola is one of my favorite restaurants in the city, especially when I am craving for some authentic Italian food. I usually go for any of their pizza or their steak. I sometimes bring my business partners here as well and they love it too. I would say that they're more on the pricier side.. Prepare around 300K for dining... More

Went there for late lunch around 2 pm and there was 1 large party and a few other tables. Surprised at the poor service, there were no napkins or cutlieries on the table even after the food arrived we had to ask for them. Waitress that took our order wasn't very helpful and just seem uninterested. After the one main... More

The food is surprisingly good and portions are big. Try the caprese, best I ever had. The owner is around to constantly train and improve the personal service. Offered a delicious espresso on the house. Wanna escape rice fo a day, go here. Only minus; airconditioning creates a chill on the legs

We managed to get some good vegetarian pizzas n pasta. Don't miss their dips... We loved their pesto. The place was a bit difficult to find as Google map didn't help. We managed to reach after a few turnarounds... Worth it.... Give it a try.

Everytime we visit Surabaya, we always take the time to eat in here. Yes, it's expensive, but food quality is good. My kid really enjoys the pasta. Pizza is good, and steak is great. Nice ambiance of the restaurant, staffs are friendly and attentive to their customers. Overall we had great time in here and would definitely come back.
