We arrived in the early evening to Bath, England to stay at the Royal Crescent Hotel and Spa. We walked one block to a quaint restaurant named Ristico Bistro. Here we had a very personal experience with the owner and the chef. We felt as though we were dining in a home. The lasagna is the owner's mothers recipe and... More

I had a great dinner here with friends - delicious food from a simple and reasonably priced menu. Staff are very friendly too! We'll definitely be going back!

Given the reviews of this restaurant, I really wanted to check it out. It is a very intimate restaurant with only a few tables but this adds to the atmosphere, especially given that you are able to view the kitchen. I had the calf's liver whilst my girlfriend had the Bolognese. She later declared that this was 'the best Bolognese... More

With three children it's often quite difficult to find a restaurant where all the kids can enjoy a meal in a cozy atmosphere and not struggle to find something to their liking. Rustico Bistro ticks all the boxes with very tasty and freshly cooked Italian and pasta dishes, a friendly environment and great service. It also helps that they do... More

I was here as part of a Rick Steves tour, which means that the guide picked this restaurant out because it was a winner. I agree! I had an excellent lasagna dinner, and the staff was very attentive.

Visited with six friends after being unable to book at Sotto Sotto. Good result as I think we had a better experience as a result. The ambience was great and just what you would expect from the name, rustic but genuine Italian. Excellent service, wines and food which we all enjoyed. Certainly happy to recommend and well worthy of the... More

A group of four friends, we visited Rustico three weeks ago on a Saturday night. The ambience struck us immediately, traditional, welcoming, we could have been in Italy. The food was a real experience. The wild boars sausage starter was so delicious I want more! The main was equally good and I am cannot wait for my next trip to... More

I had been wanting to try this place for a long while as I had always been rather fond of the predecessor restaurant there - a French bistro. We were having a little celebration before seeing our son off on a long trip and it was meant to be a little special. But it really, really wasn't. The ambience was... More
