You receive complimentary bread which is a huge plus as I am a woman that loves my carbs at the best of times. The staff are really friendly and really attentive without being too pushy. I had the...

Every visit is a pleasure, the food you expect when in Italy but in a great Birmingham inner city location. The food is fresh and being a seafood fanatic I love this venue as it never fails to impress me. I visit in the week either for lunch it evening and sometimes at the weekend. The only criticism is others... More

After a week of fish and chips, Indian food and pies we were craving Italian food, so we decided to give this place a try. The food was excellent; from the appetizer (a version of Caprese salad) over pasta to dessert. The ambience was very nice, too. I really have nothing negative to say.

We like the location and keep trying it from time to time - probably at least a dozen times over the four years. We stopped going on a Sat night because the kitchen simply cant cope with a... More

We have been looking for an authentic Italian restaurant which we discovered in the form of Cucina Rustica at Ludgate Hill. The service was fantastic. Attentive staff were professional, friendly and faultless. The food was delicious with plenty of choice. We took our three teenagers who loved it. The chef amongst our party was very impressed with the taste and... More

We came on a Saturday lunchtime for a meal and decided to sit outside, as the weather was lovely and their outside seating was nicely decorated with hanging baskets and growing vegetables. The service was quick and efficient and the waitress in charge of our table was very warm and polite. A lovely selection or different breads and olives were... More
