Never fails to impress

It is sometime since we had visited Rustico but judging by how busy it was (at lunchtime) plenty of diners already know of the quality of the food and prices which are realistic. It took us some time to choose what to eat, the menu was extensive and geared to all kinds of appetites. Our chosen... read more

Rustico is great, when living in Wakefield it was one of my main stop off points and I really haven't got anything bad to say about it, the food is always delicious with generous portions and the complimentary bread/garlic bread dip is always welcome, especially in current economic climates, where restaurants try to grab as much money as possible from...

we recently visited with friends and while the food was acceptable it seems to have lost the spark that made it great. I had a paella and while it was perfectly edible it was sloppy and the liquid had not been properly absorbed by the rice the other meals were of a similar nature. The staff while attentive appeared to... More

Well I arrived with a work colleague and wanted separate bills for expenses, for some strange reason they said no at first but then agreed. The bread the brought out was cold and not that nice, no olive oil or balsamic vinegar, and here is me thinking it was an Italian restaurant. I ordered a tuna and tomato sauce pasta... More

Not sure if I spelled it right, but food in this restaurant is always consistent in good quality and taste! Friendly staff and warm atmosphere and the limoncello is absolutely gorgeous !

My wife and I had lunch at Rustico on Valentine's Day. Love must have been in the air 'cos the food was delish and the service superb. And Cupid's bonus was that it was extremely good value for money.

I would never suggest going to this place on a busy night, if you want great service and qui lush food don't go here. 2 men to run 1 whole floor of people was ridiculous. Food was ok but no good with out the service. I will never be going back.

Visited Rusticos on Friday early evening, was shown to a table immediately but before we even took our coats off we were asked what we would like to drink and given menus. Once our food arrived (which was very nice) the staff literally just loitered near the table as soon as we had finished our meal they swooped in and... More

Dined here on Sat night a late Christmas get together. Our table was booked for 7.30 pm and to be fair it was busy but we had to stand huddled together (7 in party) near the kitchen till our table was ready which was 8.00pm so a little waiting area would have been nice. The food was of a good... More
