It was our first encounter with Italian food in Fremantle. Just a short work from our Freo abode, Ruocco’s was a logical dinner choice. Overall, it is an Ok place that we patronized couple times, but, somehow, managed to avoid in favor of other opportunities ever since. Do not take me wrong, the food is a traditional Italian fare that... More

Had a tasty lunch here with friends on a cold and rainy day. My oven baked salmon in fennel with capers and confit potatoes was very good. My husband had a pizza and my friends, the vegie calzone, all delicious. Coffee was also good. The room is small and we were glad we had booked. There is also outdoor seating... More

For me the best Italian restaurant in the Fremantle area. Offers a broad range from its menu. Never disappoints in quality. The pizzas are ol school wood fired. My favourite is the chilli mussels or the gnocchi gorgonzola. Service is always good.

Ruocco's is a family favourite of ours. Good food, reasonable prices We booked a table of 6 for a birthday. We were disappointed to find ourselves RIGHT next to a door. I had to each over and close that door about 30 times during our meal and the wind coming in was quite cold. And if I can reach the... More

We went here for dinner and were looking forward to trying some of the appealing dishes on the menu that we saw on line. Pizza bianca was burnt to a crisp and very dry and tasteless. Spaghetti not bad, also dry. Gnocchi with beef ragu was the best dish of the night quite nice. Service was good. Overpriced for the... More

We know that this joint has recently been in the news for the wrong reasons, but we decided to give this place a try on a recent trip up to Perth (and environs). A friend of ours had informed us that he had been there several times over the last couple of months and that the food was fantastic. Sadly,... More

I've been to Ruocco's a couple of times, and enjoyed the food immensely. It is always very busy - a testament to how good the food is - but that means the service can suffer a bit as the staff is rushed off their feet. It has a full Italian menu and all dishes are well made, from pasta to... More

Busy on the night we visited. Service good and efficient. We had pizza and it was very good, a little soggy in middle but otherwise very tasty ingredients. We grabbed a tiramisu to take away and it was very nice, though didnt appear to have alcohol in it. Lol. Enjoyable evening.

On a Wednesday night in September we thought Ruocco's was incredibly busy - always a good sign. The hard working waiter advised this was normal. Much busier was Fridays and Saturdays. My chicken folded over spinach and walnuts was really yummy. My partners veal was also excellent. Recommended to us by the owner of our East Fremantle B & B.
