Rucola manages to be laid-back, yet stylish at the same time. This restaurant, cafe, and wine shop is located far from the bustle of the city center, which makes it the perfect getaway for lovers of Italian food and keeps the prices cheap.
The menu holds a vast selection of classic Italian dishes: antipasti, risottos, raviolis, pastas, pizzas… There is no doubt something for everybody, and the pizzas are by far the best in Tallinn (and it is also possible to order them from home!).
The other part of the restaurant is a wine store and a cafe. They have plenty of reds and whites to choose from, as well as huge bottles of prosecco. Along with wine, little Italian delights such as prosciutto, ciabatta, manchego, and marinated olives can also be purchased.
The cafe serves hot and cold drinks and heavenly cakes. It is almost impossible to choose from all the delicious-looking cakes, but my suggestion is to go for the tiramisu. It is one of the best I have ever had (and I have been to Italy many times!).
If you want to have a relaxed evening and Italian food accompanied by great wines and kind service – Rucola is definitely worth a visit.
