Ate here with my husband last night, and will definitely be returning. We went in on the off chance whilst having drinks in the area. Waited 20 mins for a table but we were prepared for a wait on a busy Saturday night. The place was buzzing - very good atmosphere. When we were taken to our table the maitre'd... More

We had an enjoyable lunch at this restaurant today. Our first but certainly won't be our last. Food was wonderful. Staff were attentive and friendly. Nothing to fault. Can't wait to return.

This is not the first time we visited Cucina Rustica- the food, as always, did not disappoint and was delicious. The service was excellent and our waitress Claudia was attentive and made our visit even more enjoyable.

We visited here early on a Friday evening and by coincidence, a review appeared in the Birmingham Mail on the same night. The review was not very favourable but all that I can say is that our experience and food was not the same. We hadn't got too long in the restaurant as we were going to the theatre so... More

My wife and I were staying at a hotel near this restaurant and went there because it had good Tripadvisor ratings. We had an excellent dinner. Very good food and drink, and attentive service. It is in an area where there are several other restaurants.
