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.

I don't understand at all how this pasta can get a rave review. It's not worthed at all. The service is super slow. and the three type pasta which they mention is one of the best and special menu they have, is totally the worst pasta i've eaten in my life. Let's start with the pasta itself, totally overcooked, far... More

Very disapointing service. The waiters mostly ignored my table. It is not acceptable for a place like this. The food is ok, though a bit expensive. I would value the experience higher if the service had been better, but for the prices at this place, I expect more.
