Went in on a Sarturday night, music was way too loud for a restaurant. Menu is well set, has something for everyone. Scallops to start were beautifully cooked, but the main was somewhet a let down. I had fish which was well cooked but I found it too rich as it was fried and served with a deep fried mushroom,... More

We've been semi-regular (no as regular as we'd like!) returning customers of Cucina Rustica for a few years now and it's turned into our favourite place to eat in Birmingham. We've loved anything we've ordered from the menu, from pasta dishes to steaks. The service has always been excellent and we're always made to feel welcome. Would definitely recommend the... More

This restaurant is where my partner and myself go to celebrate special occasions usually our birthdays etc. My partner booked this for her birthday on Monday 17 August 2015 at 7:00pm. What we like about this restaurant is its location and the food is always good and we enjoy getting to sit in our favourite place by the window. The... More

We stumbled across this restaurant on our travels and decided to book for a birthday celebration on a Thursday night. The food was beautifully presented and to a high standard. The starters of Bruschetta and Goats Cheese with Pear and Walnuts were mouthwatering. The same could be said for our mains of Seafood Risotto and Crab Linguine. Even the Lasagna... More

Okay, it's a Tuesday evening, but it's our anniversary and we've decided on Cucina Rustica as we've had great traditional Italian fare and good service there before. Unfortunately on this occasion I've selected a starter special that's turned up as the tiniest of soft shell crabs and then only the 1 with bottled sweet chilli sauce for £6.95 and our... More

Another of my favourites in Birmingham. Always a quality meal with exceptional service. It has been good to see it grow in popularity since it first opened. The team at Cucina Rustica really are doing a great job.

Stopped off on a quiet Sunday for a quick lunch and was really, truly surprised by the quality of the food and the lovely service from the waiting staff. The pizza was amazing and the wild boar fagotini is amazing. Decent wine choices too.

Fabulous! Best pizza and pasta we have ever eaten; better even than in Italy! Staff friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Pizza freshly cooked with fantastic ingredients and wild boar stuffed pasta with mushroom sauce simply exquisite
