A friend and I popped in one dreary day in March, just on the off chance that they would be able to get us something to eat and drink. I was amazed and delighted, the staff were friendly and welcoming, the place was spotlessly clean, the menu was superb and we chose well. The food was excellent, well presented and... More

This is an excellent restaurant on the edge of Birmingham's Jewellery Quarter, it is spacious and on the evening that we attended it was clear that they were catering for some large Christmas parties. The service that we received however was excellent, efficient and prompt. The food was excellent from the large garlic bread with tomato through to the tagliatelli... More

Came down from Scotland for the Markets and booked in for a meal at Cucina Rustica - An absolute pleasure from start to finish, the staff who took my call for what was a late booking on a busy Decmber Friday evening to the staff who greeted my partner and I when we arrived. The food was exceptional, the veal... More

It was a lousy night but the street lights attracted us to this restaurant. It was recommended by the Bloc Hotels. Staff were attentive and friendly. The barman/ waiter was very nice but had no idea how a Kir Royal was served but agreed to replace it. Starters were good but not exceptional. My wife's main course was excellent but... More

Tried Cucina Rustica last night, after wanting to eat here for some time. Went for the Xmas set menu, which wasexcellent value at 29.95 per head, and could not get over the amount of food served, huge portions! All 4 of us were amazed. Excellent quality risotto, my wife claimed one of the best she'd had. All the main courses... More

We were meeting up with friends centrally in Birmingham and were looking for a good restaurant. We used Trip Advisor and the local authority Cleanliness Rating to choose one. We were not disappointed, being a party of six we were given a table off of the main restaurant area. The ambience and quality of the food were top notch. The... More

We came here for what was our 6th visit in 2 years for a family member's birthday lunch. After our first 3 visits we spoke very highly of this restaurant and were impressed by the food and service. We had visited in November and not enjoyed it as much as our previous visits but put this down to an off... More

Just to make it clear, yes this is by far my favourite Italian restaurant. I don't go as often as I would really love to. My husband & I went last Saturday night 29/11/14. We had quite a late sitting, as this suited our friends, however they could not make it at last minute. When we arrived the place was... More

Visited on a very busy Saturday evening. It was a first visit for all of us, we were looking forward to authentic Italian, we were not disappointed. Our friends were late arriving, it simply was not a problem to restaurant staff. We were seated at the bar, very relaxing, served by very friendly barstaff. When our meal was served it... More

After extensively reviewing Birmingham on trip advisor we settled on Cucina Rustica. To start they could not find our booking but no problem they had space. The Spicy Sausage starter though quite nice was a little salty and the main course Pasta tasted of burnt Garlic.It all reminded me of a Pizza Express. Somewhat disappointing but we didn't have to...
