Very good food, good wine and the value for money is great. Nice location close to the Uniln Street and easy to find. Tip, make a table reservation - specially in the weekends its busy. Higly recommended place!

Atmosphere: busy, friendly, good vibe. Decorated in simple, traditional Italian manner. Rusticos isn't pretentious, it has the feel like you're eating at the only restaurant in a small Italian town...only bigger. Food: large food and wine selections. All our group had three enjoyable courses, plenty of flavour and variety. Wine was also excellent. Service: not bad but not great. Servers... More

Visited Rustico on several occasions before and always been extremely satisfied with food and service. Last time went for lunch on Saturday - restaurant was very busy and we had an excellent experience. Pasta special and chicken of the day were wonderful. Recommend it to all true Italian food lovers!

Had lunch here with our family and as always the food and the service were excellent. We have eaten here before and it is always consistently good and the prices are very reasonable, particularly the lunch prices.Excellent !!

having been at Rustico several times now and was there Saturday evening and very disappointed with the food and choice especially for vegetarians. Ended up having some sort of pasta with mushrooms it was so thick and gloopy was beardy edible. The service was slow and it certainly had no atmosphere about the place. We were up at the very...

An absolutely disappointing dinner at Rusticos. Rude and unfriendly waitresses, table and chairs dont fit together, chair too high, table too low, Pasta Carbonara with parsley (Yuck!, and not a pasta carbonara! Find a better chef!), paper napkins and plastic tablecloths (they are expensive and then I expect to get something for the price I have to pay). When the... More

Over priced! Over rated! Terrible service! Manager has a serious attitude problem! Nothing like a genuine italian redtaurant! Safe to say i will not be returning.

Like so many things in Aberdeen this place is overpriced and probably only still in business due to a lack of competition. Food was vile, chicken cannelloni was disgusting, microwaved slop. Male waiter upstairs had an attitude problem. Wouldn't return if I was starving and this was only restaurant in Aberdeen.

A return visit recently with friends, as we went on about the quality of food, the service and the atmosphere in Rusticos'. So they wanted to try it out..... We weren't disappointed. From the moment you walk in the door, you are greeted warmly regardless if its your first time there or a regular - that makes it a bit... More

This was always a favourite when I lived in Aberdeen and 6 years on it still delivers. Good quality food and very friendly service. The base menu is solid with all the Mediterranean standards and they vary it with daily specials. Although I didn't have seafood last night it was always sublime in the past. A good wine list with...
