Rucola is not in the city center but if you happen to visit that part of the city - for instance Zoo or Rocca al Mare Open Air Museum, you should consider to go to Rucola for lunch or dinner. The menu is long and everything is delicious, their pizzas are definitely among the best in Tallinn and the selection of cakes is quite impressive. Kids can be happy about great selection of Italian ice-creams. The service is very nice and water and fresh bread are offered for free. In summertime there are two open air terraces, the view is not the best but it's still nice to sit there at warm summer evenings. There is a lovely shop too in the restaurant, where one can buy wine and different Italian delicacies.

The location may not be the easiest to reach, but I think it is worth the effort. The restaurant has 2 terraces and 2 floors. At least one terrace has infrared heating, but I'm not sure about the other. They also offer blankets on a chilly night.

But the main reason to come here is the food - you just can't beat it in this price range. We've visited this place many times and we always enjoy the experience. Everything I've ever had in the menu has always been great, but the pizzas are just to die for. The service is always nice and fast, unless it's a very busy noon/evening.

The atmosphere is really nice - it's a mix of a shop and a restaurant. The interior design is a bit of country style with a lot of pop culture thrown in. It is what you call a family friendly restaurant so sometimes loud children can be a bit annoying though.

The first thing that I liked here - it's original ide to wait for the order. In the center of the hall there is a snack bar with water, breads, olive oil and spices. It is very convenient, each client can generate free snack while waiting for your order. Dining are is bright and comfortable. The menu is varied, has a set of good wines. Portions are very large, take the pasta. Kids have pace to play.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years and have always been happy with the quality of food. This time however, our server Eva, was incredible! She was very friendly, helpful and showed that she enjoyed her job.
The pizza bianca al pesto was great for sharing as an appetizer. The all-you-can-eat bread was fresh and plenty of "help yourself" water with or without lemon.
I had the penne al prosciutto and my wife had the spaghetti alla marinara. Both were very tasty.
I will come back to the restaurant not only for the food but also for Eva.
