Surprisingly high-quality restaurant given that is in the middle of a tourist attraction - some restaurant might be tempted to overcharge and save on quality but not Pizzeria Ruka. It is not the cheapest Pizzeria but it is definitely high-quality and service works evenif it is nearly always packed. Reservation is not a bad idea during peak holidays.

First class Pizza in Ruka for either take out or eating in. Freshly made and cooked traditionally. Well worth a short walk to it.

We were a party of 10, reserved the same day which was needed in ski-season. We got a place at the intermediate floor which was nice and more private. All chose pizza and were surprised about the speed these landed in front of us ànd good quality. The extra topping possibility gives you the option to get real classic pizza...... More

We had a late flight to our winter cabin so we pre-ordered via telephone. We got all we needed ready and packed to the thermo bag! Great tasting pizza, not very expensive.

This was a very short walk along a snow path from the centre of Ruka. We had in mind that they would serve pasta as well as pizza but they literally only serve Pizza. Our youngest isn't a great fan but we found one she would eat. As with all of Ruka the prices aren't cheap and the wine is... More

Went here with the family. Very kind service. Amazing crispy pizzas. Lots of reindeer pizza options. Try at least the "Lapponia" and "Poro" YUM!

Good quality wood-fired Pizza. Small 5 min easy walk to the restaurant. Staff friendly. Not many tables so you may need to book at busy times. It was our first night so we pre-booked with our tour operator. Drinks as always here are expensive. But pizza good value.

Went here as a couple and the service was good. The food was excellent. I had a smoked salmon and prawn with creme fraiche and rocket and my husband had a ham and pineapple. They were thin crust and hand stretched. I do not usually eat pizza but we had just arrived in Ruka and were hungry and this hit... More

Four of us had dinner and this was by far the best pizza we ever had! The setting was lovely, the service was excellent and we really enjoyed seeing the pizzas being made in wood fired ovens while we were dining.

This restaurant is a short walk from the center of Ruka village along a well lit path, or you could ski there along the lit cross country trail. The pizzas range from the simple, traditional flavours to locally inspired ones with reindeer meat. We ate there twice, and both times our pizzas were great, perfectly cooked on a thin, crispy...
