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.

I really enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Good value for your money. Most pastas and pizzas are great, depends on what your favourite choice of toppings or sauces. Highly recommended

Been here a couple of times on business trips. It is fairly straightforward Italian food, well cooked. Dependable, but not exciting. Tasty food, though.

La Rucola in my opinion is the best Italian restaurant in Surabaya. They serve authentic wood fire pizza. Considering there's not many other options in town, La Rucola could be your best choice if you're craving for Italian.

There are no many restaurant that offer Italian food in Surabaya, and this one is definitely one of the best with a good value for the price. Ambiance is good and considerably romantic. Having a really good time for our birthday dinner!

The Linguine al nero de sepia was quite good. Pizza was okay. Not sure why red wine was chilled? Good ambiance for couples who want to have romantic dinner.

I came to this restaurant for dinner. I ordered ravioli and seafood pizza. The pizza had very great taste, but the ravioli wasn't great enough.
