I love this restaurant but I was disappointed in the food when I had dinner there earlier in the week. This could only be down to the fact that the main chef was on holiday though I have found it to be a bit hit and miss in the past. They are changing their name to 43 but it is still owned and managed by the same people. But I will be going back as it has become a treasured local mainly because of their wonderful waiter, Jose.

A little expensive and some of the food was a bit bland. Pasta dishes better than fish dishes.

We’ve had great takeout from Rullo’s before by this is the first time we have eaten in. The food was good but they weren’t equipped to deal with a busy Saturday night and we spent some time waiting. Luckily the company was good. They had also sold out of our preferred started and dessert.

Probably would go back but not on a Saturday night.

New Years Day 1st January is always a difficult one. Service was OK. we had a bit of a wait.
Chips were not crispy and the Deep fried Courgettes disappointing. Main courses were good but on previous visits we thought the food was better.

Wow is what I always feel when I come here. I am very fussy about where my food is sourced and this is one of the only places locally I feel comfort in knowing the food is made fresh on site! The staff are attentive and the ambiance is just perfect. Lovely food and wine thanks rullos

Wow! Such a little gem in North West London. Great food, incredible service and lovely atmosphere. The manager really looked after my friends and I.
The Ragu is to die for as is the sea bass. Can’t wait to go back. Thanks Rullos!

Having visited for the second time I have been disappointed on both occasions. The staff are not particularly attentive and most importantly the food is very bland, seriously under seasoned and luke warm. Also annoying things like low quality wine, no ice buckets, and cheap pepper grinders not peppercorns make for a very average “Italian” experience, not to mention the woefully poor dessert menu.

Tonight our sides came out after we’d finished mains, and despite mentioning the poor experience and taste, was only offered a free dessert (not something we wanted), and when we said no thanks the service charge was removed (which we would have also done and should be discretionary charge anyway).

Sadly there is not much competition in the area yet, but my wife, friends and I won’t be returning again, and suggest others venture further to West Hampstead or Notting hill and bypass this area as it’s very average at best.

Shame as there is real potential for good restaurants in the area...

We used to go quite often and found ourselves here for sunday lunch after aboit five months of not visiting. What a difference, gone are the lovely daily specials/pastas. The portion sizes along with prices have come down although not sure why as was very good value before, menu seems more cheap and cheerful now much like a carrlucios versus outstanding unique italian dishes. Eg plain calamari and mayo dip is a far cry from their previous calamari starter dish.
Waiters have always been friendly and fantastic and we found only one taking care of the entire place rushed off his feet. Wine list has also changed and not for the better .

If you don't know Rullo's, you really should check it out. A beautifully designed space with outdoor garden and wonderful service especially by my favourite waitress Gioia. The new Italian chef turns out masterpieces of delight!

We had a moderate meal I had pasta with Vongole (clams) They were the smallest clams I have ever seen so I obviously chose the wrong thing Nice place and lovely people but the food and wine disappointing

Though one of the waiters explained one of the dishes a bit incorrectly, service was great and attentive. The place looks nice and cosy, inside and outside, they have a good wine list and great food. The only things I would comment on are the lights outside, which are a bit low, and the pasta dishes, which were made very well but a bit too delicate for my rough Italian taste.
Anyway, we will definitely go again.

We 're immense trying the fried squid, the tartare and the desserts.

Nice local Italian rustic restaurant. The service was friendly although a little erratic at times. Our starters of squid and zucchini fritti were tasty. The chicken for main course was delicious, however my friend's spaghetti vongole was a small portion and not so tasty.

The deserts were excellent too - especially the lemon semi freddo. Overall very good - however on a Saturday night it was packed and extremely noisy with large groups of friends.

I would recommend it for good Italian food in lively surroundings.

This second visit was to celebrate my birthday with friends and I couldn't have been happier with my choice. Warm Italian service, great atmosphere, delicious food, really well presented, light years away from spag bol, totally unpretentious.

We had the most fabulous meal here during the week made even better by the wonderful waitress Gioa who went to endless effort during our evening. I dont really want to post this as I want this neighbourhood gem to be kept a secret so I can always get a table! But if you want a real treat - the food is amazing - go here. It is reasonably priced too.

I have always had wonderful meals at Rullo's so I took a friend for a welcome home meal. My pacchero was delicious as always but his pacchero with cod must have had about half a tbs of cod in it, plus one olive and 3 tomatoes. It was very disappointing.

We visited Rullos for the fifth occasion on Saturday evening, and can honestly say that we have enjoyed our visit each and every time. The food is consistently good, authentic Italian cuisine. Excellent clean fresh food for a fair price. Service was excellent, and everything was of a great standard. Look forward to eating here again.

The atmosphere and service were very good, but let down by the squid starter which was as tough as can be. The pasta dishes were fresh and tasted of Italy albeit the linguine was lacking in promised clams. We’re local so will be back but hoping for a better and consistent overall experience next time.
