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.
Amazing food... was very impressed, especially the fish, fantastic atmosphere and for a Tuesday night it was busy, but we felt we were alone... thank you to all staff for a wonderful evening... Theresa
Outstanding Meal, cant wait to go again. Service was also very good with the staff being very friend and welling to do there job which is a nice change in WA.
Food was delicious and with reasonable price. There were good range of wines on the list and with also reasonable price. Waitresses were all very attentive and providing fantastic service with smile. We enjoyed the whole dining experience very much and we will definitely go back there!
My guests and myself were well pleased with ruccos . Service was a1/food was well presented and enjoyable.food and drink all at reasonable prices. All in all a good night.
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.
Dine there Sat 29th July. Service was good and fast. Entrees were great but main courses were disappointing. Fish and chicken over cooked and dry. Calamari and prawns also overcooked and tasteless. We dine at Ruocco's frequently and usually food is great. We are hoping this is a one off.
Brilliant sweet potato gnocchi so fluffy and had such an amazing flavor. The portion sizes were fantastic and great value for money. The meatball sauce was incredible. And the pizza we chose was simple flavours but it was done perfectly! Service was lovely and efficient too.
Always exceptional food at Ruocco's and a good atmosphere. A good option for a wintery night. Even sitting outside would have been nice with the heaters.
Great food. Tasty, big size serves. Great service from staff. They polite but also have a laugh. It was packed by 7pm on a Tuesday night so that in itself says something about how good it is.
First time we had been to rocks, it was packed! Make sure you book, The food was fantastic and service prompt considering how busy it was, we will be back highly recommend it and very family friendly
Great food and service - waitress we had went above and beyond to make our night an enjoyable one. Would not hesitate to recommend your restaurant to anyone. We have booked again for next weekend.
Food was delicious, very quiet for a Friday lunch time in Fremantle, we were pleasantly surprised. The only suggestion would be the music/radio was a bit too loud to make conversation easy. The wait staff were lovely.
Great Italian food, and the staff are very friendly! The restaurant is family friendly and the kids meals are a good size. We will go back!
Food , service and surroundings fantastic, wine pricey per glass that is 1/4 full was pretty shocked at how much you got for $8.00 .
Very friendly staff who made you feel welcomed and valued. The food was quick and excellent quality. A must place to eat when celebrating an event or special meal out.
Great food! Chilli mussels were delicious!! Service was friendly and excellent. Will definitely being going back. Very busy Saturday night recommend booking in advance !
Very nice. Warm family friendly restaurant, great service, nothing was too much trouble. Food 10/10. Looking forward to returning to this place. Loved it. 🤗
Attentive staff, good food and buzzy atmosphere. Well positioned in south freo and bring your own makes for good value. Not fine dining but perfect for a Saturday night out.
Great food and great service. We sat outside and the atmosphere was cosy. I Had the crab linguini (Linguine al Granchio ) and it was delicious. Would definitely recommended.
Great food and drinks staff were friendly and great service pizza was great! Pasta dishes fantastic. Recommend for family night out we will be back again. Jarrod McLeod
Very friendly service and good food. Lots of choice on the menu. Would have loved loved more gluten free choices though , especially a gf pasta dish.
Good food friendly staff we didn't stay for sweets because it was a bit noisy kids crying and got busy how ever we will return soon
Great food portions really big so don't order entre. Service was great venu a bit noisy but only because it was full. Good night out
Pizza was decent and pasta was pretty good too. Nothing overly spectacular but overall an enjoyable evening spent with friends. The atmosphere is always nice down here.
Very disappointed in the quality..I have been going there for over 20 years and will not be giung back..pizzas are getting smaller every time I go 🙄🙄
