Rustico is a lovely restaurant serving authentic Italian food at great prices. You know its going to be good judging by how packed out that it always is. Wasn't disappointed, we had an excellent night.

Rustico is one of my favourite restaurants in Aberdeen, and certainly the best Italian/Med in the city. It's always really busy and quite loud so not the place to go if you want to sit quietly. The food is good and served quickly. There are always specials on the board and sufficient vegetarian options too. The staff are very nice... More

Rustico has always been our "go to" place for a good dinner or where we would take visitors. Tonight, the service was good as usual, but the food let it down. Ordered one of the specials which was very bland. Sent it back and it came out a second time as bland. Very disappointing. Ordinary and average off the menu... More

I have on a few occasions wanted to go here but it's always full! So today my delight when I got a table, I had a rabbit with ribbon pasta with juicy vegetables, very delicious x worth the wait 😉

Friendly staff, good service although we visited at a quiet time. We would go back and look forward to having an evening meal there

I like this place, a favourite of mine and colleagues. Always seems busy so do book! They've taken the monkfish off the specials board, a shame but made up for by other great dishes. Recommended

I visited for dinner with a couple of female friends. We'd all visited Rustico previously and had a good experience. I can't fault the food we had, it was really good. However this time we did feel slightly rushed by the staff, with a plate being taken away while my friend actually had her last forkful to her mouth! We're... More

No sooner was pur starter finished that our mains were served and then as soon as we'd put our forks down our plates were cleared and in the same time dessert and the bill was offered. we were in an out...

We dined at Rustico to celebrate my daughtes graduation. We had a lovely meal. The restaurant was busy but the service was quick and attentive. The food and wine were excellent and great value. Big portions (we probably shouldn't have ordered so much!) Having recently visited Rome we have rarely found an Italian restaurant matching up to the real thing.... More

Family run restaurants are always a joy to visit. The welcome, the service and the ethos are usually very apparent, as they are here. Enjoy a traditional menu with some differences to distinguish it as part of a well-designed menu. Not too many wines and all of them excellent. Always full, so that speaks for itself. Try it for yourself... More
