The restaurant is in front of the inspiring Sirmione castle. We had a very pleasant evening: service was kind and everyone was in a good mood. Food was a new experience for mouth and eyes. Definitely coming back.

The restaurant is hidden a bit but worse visiting. Interesting concept and menu. Good quality. Service is nice as well.

Came to Sirmione in June 2016, had such a lovely time, booked to return in October 2016 to celebrate our Wedding anniversary with friends. Booked a table via email early July 2016, and received email confirmation. Arrived in Sept, and went to the restaurant to find it was closed. Spoke to a very unhelpful guy who said they had problems... More

La Rucola is well hidden away from the main streets in Sirmione, but only a stone's throw from the castle. We were quite excited about eating here due to the Michelin star (and also we'd just got engaged) but wondered whether we'd got the wrong night when we arrived! There were three waiting staff hovering for us, with no other... More

Since booking our holiday to beautiful Italy we were equally excited to dine in this Michelin starred restaurant. Day one we were greeted by staff in cheque who took out booking, name and hotel details for a Thursday at 8pm for four people. We arrived promptly then to be greeted by a closed building with post in the door. With... More

Been putting this review off for a few weeks since we have just returned to Sirmione and my plan was to revisit this restaurant to give it another chance. 5 weeks ago we came to Sirmione with friends and had our last evening meal in La Rucola. High expectations given the star were unfortunately not met. Firstly, the decor is... More

I've been to Rucola with my Partner in summer 2015 but I remeber the experience like yesterday... it was the best dinner date I ever had! We had the 5 menu course with wine and our sommelier was excellent, emotional, super funny and impressed us with his knowledge and charisma. Although Sirmione is quite busy, the restaurant was super calm... More

We came to Sirmione for some lunch before leaving to Venice. It was 32 degrees outside and naturally we came in shorts and sandals. We called a few days beforehand for the reservation. When we arrived, the lady greeting us sent us out of the restaurant because 'we weren't in dress code'. We hadn't even been told before when we... More

I celebrated my birthday with family in this restaurant and loved every moment of it. Rucola is a small restaurant with high demand from customers so for dinner especially you would want to book the table in advance! Michelin star restaurant for a reason: menu varies daily depending on what chef has been able to buy locally in the morning.... More
