As a regular visitor to Rustico's I have yet to find a better restaurant in Aberdeen offering such a combination of good food at a reasonable price, attentive service and a lively atmosphere. Highly recommend it and you need to book at the weekend.

Good atmosphere, varied menu representing good value and good house wine. There's no wonder it's always popular.

Finding our feet in Aberdeen and happened across Rustico. Decided to try it for lunch and certainly were not disappointed. Everything was excellent, the food, the service, the drink. Only reason I have given it very good and not excellent in my score was because we had hardly got our bums on the seats before we were asked what we... More

On a weekend to Aberdeen we were booked to go to this restaurant as a group of 12. When we went in it was soo busy (which is a good sign) they took us to the top floor where we all sat at one long table. The restaurant was very nice and Italian looking. After we all arrived waitresses were... More

I visited the restaurant with 2 colleagues on a Wednesday evening. We had not booked and were fortunate because it appeared we had the last remaining table. The restaurant is made up a a few different rooms within the same building. Its size is deceptive as the impression from the street is that the venue is smaller than it actually... More

Visited Rustico while visiting Aberdeen for a meal with family. This is a very busy restaurant just off Union St which is the main shoping st in the City. We pre booked as it was a Friday evening and just as well as the restaurant was very busy all the time we were in there. When we arrived our table... More

The food is very rich and of an exceptional quality. My only issue is that its so busy there is a constant rush of staff milling around. Sadly this does not make the most relaxing setting.

We have known this place for the last 6.5 years and it has never failed to satisfy our taste buds. My fiancee first brought me to Rustico on our very first date when we were still in University. Over the years, we have gone back for their Cozze and the Marinara pasta or main course. The serving is value for... More

Visited for the first time at the weekend. Service was great. Dishes were authentic and good-sized portions - the naan bread is huge! Lamb Rogan Josh was possibly the best I have had, the meat was of great quality and absolutely delicious. Would definitely recommend it - we will be back!
