We have eaten at.this now well established restaurant for a number of years, from it's small beginning to it's current status/ expansion of premises. The range & quality of food has never disappointed, the front of house staff being ever attentive & accommodating to our requests. We've never had to send any of our food back as it's always been...

I've been a regular visitor to Rusticos for years and I've visited with my boyfriend, friends and family. I don't think I've ever been disappointed. The menu choice is fantastic with lots of different things to try and there is a specials board with different starters and mains too. I regularly have the mozzarella in tomato sauce to start and...

Amazing food and service, and really easy on the pennies. Great for special occasions as the staff make you feel really welcome and often go above and beyond :-)

I visited today for lunch with a friend. We were seated immediately and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The lunch menu had a good selection and the food was delicious and not overpriced, we both had a meal and a large glass of wine for around £10 each. The service was also very quick. This was my first... More
