Excellent food and good value

Went for lunch on the £14.95 menu, which includes two courses and a glass of house wine. The portions were very generous and the food tastes excellent. I had a chicken salad to start with and it was almost like a main course sized portion. There was loads of meat in it which made it very filling... read more

A large group of us came here for a celebration. We were asked to pre order our food from one of two party menus. I had no difficulty making a choice. I am afraid we were noisy but the good thing was that we were out of the way of other diners although not completely cut off. There was a... More

Had an enjoyable meal here but nothing particularly spectacular. In fairness we were a large group so had pre-ordered off one of the fixed party menus so maybe didnt sample a good range of the food available - this is part of the reason the bill surprised us. £30 for a bottle of Prosecco and £5 for a pint!

Early dinner for 4 pre theatre, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, great fun. Food and service excellent as expected, very good value for money too. Well worth stepping a bit away from centre of town, less crowds, easy parking and a first class resteraunt.

We loved it here. The vibe was really good. The manager very welcoming and service good. The food itself was superb. We had calamari to start which tasted very fresh and a large portion. To follow we had tornados Rossini and the steak was one of the best I've had. Thoroughly recommended.

Just been to a classical lunchtime concert in St Paul's Church and came on this delightful Italian restaurant and 100 metres down Ludgate Hill in Birmingham. Inside and outside seating so great for summertime lunch away from the hustle of the city centre. On road metered parking in the jewellery quarter of Birmingham. Wide selection of starters and fish, meat... More

I actually won a meal at Cucina Rustica, through a competition on Twitter. We decided to visit on a Sunday evening and were really impressed, not only with the food but the atmosphere and service. It was really nice, great food, the menu is a little pricey but again, you pay for what you get and the dishes were really... More
