Visited this restaurant on a Sunday on the off chance and so was pleasantly surprised to see it open!! My partner and I both had starters and main courses. Both were extremely tasty and well presented. The restaurant both inside and outside was beautiful and spotlessly clean. It is not a cheap place to eat, but it is definitely value... More

If your memory of a visit to a restaurant can be summed up as Excellent food (and a very good house wine) Friendly and efficient staff Smart environment then it must be an excellent restaurant and Cuchina Rustica is just that. Under the same ownership as Pasta di Piazza, my other favourite Italian restaurant just round the corner, it was... More

I feel i have had to sign up to trip advisor just to review this place. Firstly what a fantastic building, a warm glow on entrance (we came late evening) and smiling staff, just what you want. Grabbed a drink and were seated at a lovely table. The menu was great with a wide variety of dishes to suite any... More

The restaurant is located well and has a nice ambience but the food was average and therefore seemed to be over priced.

We ate as a table of approximately 20 work colleagues, you generally associate such a large booking with bad service but this restaurant really impressed. I had a starter of Calamari which was served as an incredibly generous portion, followed by the fillet steak which was simply incredible for a high-street restaurant. Overall, very impressed with the drink range, the... More

I've visited this restaurant a number of times and never been disappointed. I'm quite a fussy eater and not really a fan of Italian restaurants but Cucina Rustica has won me over. I have never struggled to find something to order and every meal I have had has been of great quality. The changing menu and specials board always means... More

Saw that Cucina were launching their new menu the other week and went straight to the website to make sure that THE Rack still feature and with much relief spotted it in a new guise so breathed a deep sigh of relief - and then booked a table just to check it out! So This week on the sunniest day... More
