Delicious food and super service.

The food is always good here. Me and my boyfriend love this place. My first choice for every date night! Best service I've received in any aberdeen restaurant as well. 10/10

After only a few steps through the door we'd already been greeted by approximately 5 staff members! The food was very enjoyable, I will definitely return should I make it back to Aberdeen.

One of best restaurants in aberdeen. Nice decor, staff very helpful and food is so tasty. Traditional italian food which is so much better than what you would get in a chain restaurant. I would highly recommend the lasagne!

Best thing was the atmosphere. Just really cozy and Italian. As a vegetarian I also really enjoyed the pasta options I had.

Went on a Tuesday night in a party of 8. Good job we were early as the place got very busy; reflection on its well deserved popularity! Mushroom special starter a bit bland but linguine marinara was sublime. Pasta felt and tasted home made abd was perfectly cooked. Bit pricey for Italian but worth it; better than the usual greasy...

Since I'm Italian, a friend told me to eat at Rustico, as the food is really good. I went there for dinner, and asked the Italian waiter to help me chosing the "right food", since some of it had an Italian name but was actually cooked in a Scottish way. I had "linguine ai frutti di mare", and they were... More
