I dine here a lot with friends and family, and I don't think I have ever had a bad meal. The service is quick, and friendly. The food is absolutely gorgeous and always consistently good, with a good selection to choose from on the menu. Also a nice selection of wines. Rusticos is also very reasonably priced compared to a... More

Rustico is a firm established lunch favorite of ours. Fast very tasty food served in nice surroundings with a nice atmosphere. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Easily one of the best Lasagnes you can get in Aberdeen. The value is exceptional, the first few times I was convinced that the bill was wrong - delicious lunch for two with... More

My husband and I visited Rustico at a lunchtime and was pleasantly surprised at how busy it was (always a good sign), The staff are very friendly with out being too much in your face. The waiting staff give you bread to nibble on while you peruse the menu - not a lot of restaurants do that nowadays. The menu... More

Have been visiting Rustico on many different occasions and I have never been disappointed! It always delivers amazing, super tasty food, polite and attentive service and this authentic Italian feeling. The only couple of things I would have to mention... Keep in mind that you probably will sit extremely close to an absolute stranger due to the fact that all... More

Having had to travel to Aberdeen we decided to eat early and avoid the traffic. We found Rustico by walking round the top end of Union street. The menu was very appealing from the outside so we decided to go in. The staff were very attentive and all seemed pleased to be of service. As before a very appealing menu... More

Went back for lunch. Order Calamari fritti and minestrone for starters. Minestrone was a bit too thick. Not typical soup I used to. Pappardelle con funghi was not very tasty. Spaghetti ragu was very tasty. We like this a lot more. Homemade Tiramitsu is second to none. Cost less than £40! You have to use cash for tip.

Rustico seems to be going downhill BIG TIME. Been coming here, on and off, for several years. Used to enjoy it immensely. However, it seems to have become "conveyer belt cuisine" . No discernable effort any more. Staff seem to be set at "Fast Forward" i.e. get the punters in, take their orders and fire out whatever the chef determines... More

First impressions confirmed. Friendly efficient Italian in the centre of town. Dependable, good sized menu. Strong flavors, solid rather than light. Good wine list - the Primitivo was very pleasant at the price. Friendly service. 2 starters, 3 main and coffees, Pds 74 plus tip.
