Rucola Café is a newest venue in the CBD hosting authentic Italian cuisine, delicious stone oven pizzas and a spacious dining experience.
The venue strives to create a cosy, relaxing environment, much like home. And they do so by offering simple yet super fresh and reasonably priced pizzas with most of the ingredients used sourced straight from Italy.
At Rucola Café the pizza dough is naturally fermented and hand-stretched in house. The time and care put into the dough creates light pizza bases that are then cooked in their stone oven.
The focus on fresh produce is also evident in their sauces which are also made in house.
Rucola Café is also a new breakfast or lunch destination, offering a beautiful Italian menu with all of the classic breakfast options like smashed avo, bacon and eggs your way, pancakes or a big brekkie option.
Lunch faire includes starters of garlic bread, bruschetta or a trio of arancini, which make for great sharing plates.
The star of the show is the stone oven pizzas. They include all of the classics like margherita, supreme, BBQ and hawaiian. But if you’re looking for a more authentic slice, they offer, funghi, marinara, pollo and quattro stagioni, amongst others. For $4 extra you can add gluten free bases and a range of other toppings.
Rucola Café offer authentic pasta dishes like fettuccini alla panna, gnocchi al pesto or fettuccini carbonara. You can also choose from the risotto dishes, risotto al pollo, risotto portobello or risotto di mare.
On the healthier side you can order salads that include a garden salad, chicken and avo or an Italian salad.
This menu encompasses Rucola Café’s desire to offer traditional meals with nouvelle ingredients. They also offer vegetarian and gluten free options.
