Rucoletta Napolitan Eatery Restaurant St Pauls

A friend recently bought a voucher off Wowcher for a set meal for two at Rucoletta Napolitan Eatery in St Pauls.  St Pauls is a lovely location with a good range of restaurants and shops in the area and of course not forgetting St Paul’s Cathedral.  At night the Cathedral looks even more beautiful with the pretty lighting.  This was just a stone throw away from where we were to eat that night and we planned to take a little stroll around the local area after our meal.  When we arrived we were led through the restaurant and then upstairs.  The restaurant looked quite simple and it looked a little crammed downstairs but, on reaching the first floor we were greeted by a room that looked like a conservatory with a glass roof.  It was far airier and brighter than downstairs so a tip for anyone that visits, request a table upstairs!  Clearly a popular restaurant the upstairs began filling up quite quickly after we arrived.  The waiting staff were all very good and we watched as they flitted too and fro serving clients and taking orders.

The size of the set menu was reasonable and we chose our starter and main after a quick study.

For starters:

Polpettone el Sugo

Veal and beef meat loaf stuffed with baked ham, mozzarella, parmesan and covered with tomato sauce served with sautéed mixed peppers with black olives and capers.

A nice sized starter with lots of flavour. I thought that roasted peppers included were a nice addition adding extra colour and flavour to the dish.

Crostone alla Pizzaiola (V)

Melted smoked mozzarella in tomato sauce and oregano served on toasted home made bread.

It tastes as good as it looks.  It had a lovely rich tomato flavour and is a delicious starter perfect for vegetarians.  A great start to the meal that will boost your lycopene intake which is an added bonus! (fights wrinkles).

For the Mains

Carbonara Napoletana

Spaghetti with egg, pancetta, garlic, fresh chilli, extra virgin olive oil, parsley and parmesan cheese.

I was looking forward to this not having had a carbonara in a restaurant for quite a while.  I wasn’t disappointed.  The portion was good, the picture doesn’t do it justice at all.  Full of flavour and with a nice kick from the chilli this is a dish I would definitely eat there again.

Last but not least the dessert.  Some might say this is the best part of the meal.

The Italian classic Tiramisu 

dsc01071This was delicious!  It vanished extremely fast and we barely spoke whilst we ate this.

All the dishes were well presented.  The food arrived at the table hot and we didn’t need to wait long for staff to come over once hailed.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable meal and we were surprised to have found it on wowcher but at the same time very pleased.  They have the deal again for a 3 course meal for two from their set menu for £20 a bargain in my eyes.  Hurry on over before it expires.

My score 4 / 5
