Finding delicious Italian food is not such a hard task in Perth, however, why look any further than a trattoria that has been serving authentic Italian food to South Fremantle for over 35 years? Ruocco’s is the perfect spot to satisfy your pizza, pasta and Italian food cravings and produces high class dishes combined with friendly service to create the perfect evening out for you, a group of friends or the family. Located on South Terrace, Ruocco’s will invigorate your senses and have you remembering why this Freo favourite has been around as long as it has – just remember to book!
The Perth favourite Ruocco’s is an Italian trattoria with a long history. Proving South Fremantle locals with rustic and traditional Italian cuisine for over 35 years, Ruocco’s is well and truly a Fremantle institution. The cosy and relaxed restaurant caters to all culinary preferences and even includes a special bambino menu for the little ones, so the whole family can enjoy a night out indulging in tasty food. Whether you’re a meat lover, seafood fanatic or vegetarian there is something on the menu to delight even the fussiest of eaters, and plenty of gluten-free options to boot.
Perhaps sample one of their famous wood fired pizzas like the gorgonzola chicken, gamberetti with marinated prawns, chili and mozzarella or the classic and ever satisfying margarita; or maybe their homemade sweet potato gnocchi with burnt butter, sage and goat’s cheese or grilled barramundi. Whatever it is you choose, your tastebuds will thank you. You can find Ruocco’s on South Terrace in South Fremantle, just a short stroll from the harbour. We do recommend you book so you don’t miss out – this Perth gem is certainly worth it.
Great food and a great atmosphere. The seafood platter for 2 could easily have fed 3 people. The wait staff were very attentive .Great night out.
The service staff are very attentive and friendly and the food was fantastic as always The pasta dishes are highly recommended We will definately be coming again
Ruocco's is my favourite Pizza/Italian restaurant in Freo. I love everything about Ruocco's - creative and fresh food, wine, staff & service and very relaxed Freo atmosphere.
So good! I tried the aranchini, carbonara and the lasagna, they were all amazing! Better than the food I ate in Italy! Definitely going to come back
It was very easy to book online, the service is fantastic staff very friendly and the food is out of this world. The price's are also fair for what you get on your plate, I would definitely recommend Ruocco's to anyone that loves to eat. My only regret was not having desert as I was so full from dinner but you can take it away for later. The menu is huge, lots to pick from, we had a party of 4 and all of us picked a different meal and they were all fantastic. We will definitely be returning. If you pick a table outside even in winter it's great they have heaters and cafe blinds so it was lovely not cold at all.
Had diner with my daughter and girl friend last night at Ruocco's and the service was great giving us advise and help with the Menu. The food was great with three different mains that each of us enjoyed and all being of good portion size. The wine and entry with three different dips were great. The sweets were also very nice. The soft lighting and ambience of the restaurant made us feel comfortable. It was very busy so I am not giving away any secrets on this great restaurant.
Ruocco's is an old favourite - a Freo institution. As usual, the food was outstanding. The seafood is always fresh and cooked to perfection. My wife had the barramundi which was moist and delicious (not overcooked and dry). My seafood pizza (Gamberetti) which was delicious. The pizzas here are as good as you will get just about anywhere. In terms of quality of food and ambience this place never disappoints. Only possible gripe would be the high drinks prices, however this is no different to anywhere else in Perth (this a Perth thing where you where you pay through the nose for drinks at a restaurant/bar).
It does not matter what day you go to this Restaurant it is always busy. The food is fantastic, service is always good. Last night was very busy but staff were working so hard to accommodate everyone. We did not have to wait very long for our order to be taken and our food delivered to our table. We love going to Ruocco's.
Great food. Great menu choice. Great service and staff. Great ambience. Great money for value. Everything is great about Ruocco's! Parking is very Freo so a good short walk to and from the restaurant aids appetite and digestion. It's all good!
Hi Rucco's is where you go for a noisy family dinner or with your grandkids or when you are with people who can't make conversation. Its not a quiet place but the menu covers all appetites and sizes food orders are taken quickly food arrives within a reasonable time there is plenty of it and its well priced. Fremantle institution good summer winter location pizzas excellent. Nothing to dislike really.
