Perfect date night!

This is a great spot for a nice meal for a romantic date night. I recommend it if you are looking for a kid free restaurant, not that I have anything against children but for those nights when you get rid of yours, this is a great choice. The restaurant is small and they asked if we had... read more

It's authentic Italian but I found it to be heavy on the sauces and spice.. I would ask for light next time as the flavor was good. If you are in a hurry don't come hear as it is a ma and pa kinda place so only the owner is cooking...

Had the pleasure of having dinner for the first time last month at this restaurant. My husband had the Veal Marsala and he enjoyed every mouthful. I had the clam Linquine and it was the best I have ever had and let me tell you I have had many. Loads of clams, just enough garlic and the pasta was cooked... More

We were travelling through Chilliwack and chose Rustica's Ristorante for a family dinner based on their reviews on TripAdvisor. We were so disappointed! My husband ordered the Linguine con Fruite de Mare, and only tasted black pepper and overcooked, previously frozen shrimp meat. My dish of Penne alla Cheeca was swimming in oil, and we had to send back the... More

Italian ambiance from the checkered table cloths nice art work on the walls and the earthy feel in a small city in the Fraser Valley what a gem. Rustica's would hold its own in Toronto or Vancouver. If you are prepared to dine in a Europrean style where you relax over wine bread and conversation, you will be rewarded by... More

The food and service were great. This restaurant is a place we have visited in the past for family occasions and the fare was as good as we remembered. Starting with a delightful mixed greens salad, followed by Sal's Favourite - a beautiful mushroom fettuccine with delicious sliced beef. My wife had a special chicken breast with pesto sauce and...

Our 13th wedding anniversary and as luck would have it, we had the best dining experience since we moved to Chilliwack 7 years ago. Having checked this site before our visit we were forewarned against the possibility of slow and possibly rude service. Nothing could be farther from the truth. If you want it fast go to Mc D's.

it was quite a nice atmosphere but what remains mostly in my memory is that we waited a very long time for our food which was average (we did not have pasta, which i heard is what they are known for) and it was also quite expensive. Server was good. I would like to give it another try because i... More

The food and service here is outstanding. The pace is not rushed, there was time between courses to enjoy and savour. Each dish was outstanding; Rustica Spaghetti, Sausage Penne, Caprese Salad and the specials all offered high quality, fresh, innovative cuisine which will have us coming back again and again. Our server Savannah only further enhanced our experience with her... More

This is a local restaurant run by a real family. The ambiance is upscale but with lots of appeal for different sorts of people - everyone like groups that are more boisterous to romantic dinners for two. The staff are very attentive - we have never had to wait an unreasonable time for service or our meals. Having said that,... More
