Great food and atmosphere. Lively, chatty, child-friendly. I wish we had a restaurant like this locally. I would definitely recommend a visit if you are ever in Aberdeen

Visited Rustico's several times now, and the food just gets better and better. Only downside to the restaurant is that you hear everyone's conversations, and it can be quite hard to talk to the people you are with if a big party is in and being quite loud. I have left before having dessert once, because it was becoming impossible... More

We have eaten in Rustico's on several occasions over the years. It never lets us down. The staff are very friendly and helpful with recommendations if needed. For me, I think it suits groups of people rather than couples as it's normally very busy and can get quite noisy so as long as your not looking for a quiet romantic... More

Table for 7, Fast service without being too fast. All the meals looked nice especially the seafood. Even did a special plain chicken and chips for my fussy son. Reasonably priced for excellent quality food and wine. Cant waitbto go back!

As always Rustico's never disappoints. I've visited for a few years on and off whenever I'm up North in Aberdeen with work, for our evening meal. More recently I've visited with family and the same busy restaurant, tasty authentic grub, served up by knowledgeable efficient staff, is always at the top of it's game. Handy for the city and our...

Used this place a few times over the years normally in the evening .Recently used for a business lunch which was a little disappointing . The staff were friendly and efficient but It would appear though there is now a drive for speed of service rather than quality of food . Our lunch appeared within minutes of ordering obviously without... More

Always had a great meal in here and the service is always good. The place always seems to be busy, so that speaks volumes. Keep up the good work and I'll keep returning!!

Went on a lunch time and had a good lunch menu that was an alternative to the main menu. Good portion size and could have no major complaints about the food or dining experience.
