For me this place is must every time when I am at Ruka. Located bottom of Kelo-slope. So it is easy to go lunch during skiing day. Place is spacious and full of natural light.

Main thing in this place is still Pizzas. I love them and my kids love those too. Pizzas are tasty, large and plenty of fillings. I would definitely recommend to taste one of Kuusamo collection pizzas. There is many variations of real tastes of Finland like reindeer, salmon, chanterelle and local squeaky cheese. And for drink Finnish beer like Karhu III.

Prices of pizzas are reasonable, for adults from 11 euro to 16 euros, and for kids 6 to 9 euros. Definitely worth it.

I think this pizzeria is one of best pizzerias in Finland and for sure best in Northern Finland. You will not be disappointed.

We ate a very special pizza named Quattro Lappone and it was excellent. It is very nice that this staff use local ingredients to make a pizza. There is not an other place on earth to get this recipe for so tasty pizza. If a Finnish pizza restaurant could get a Michelin Star this were the one.
We highly recommend this restaurant!

Surprisingly high-quality restaurant given that is in the middle of a tourist attraction - some restaurant might be tempted to overcharge and save on quality but not Pizzeria Ruka. It is not the cheapest Pizzeria but it is definitely high-quality and service works evenif it is nearly always packed. Reservation is not a bad idea during peak holidays.

First class Pizza in Ruka for either take out or eating in. Freshly made and cooked traditionally. Well worth a short walk to it.
