nice italian and specials board

Food very good here and good service. not much atmosphere in the dining area. make sure they open the wine at the table as some time ago they were serving cheaper wine than the one ordered from the wine menu.

Every time I go to Rustico I have an amazing meal. Over the years I have been many many times and I have always thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The food is amazing they always go the extra mile and they are so friendly.

No ambience rude staff mediocre food won't bother visiting again. Can cook better ourselves. I would not recommend it anyone as I cannot really give it any good feed back even the coffee was atrocious.

Went on a Thursday lunch time, was very busy. Ordered a pizza and Lasagne. Pizza was okay and Lasagne was just nice, the Lasagne comes with Chips. The chips were disappointing as they were frozen ones, not home made. Also had cheesecake and coffee. I would say this is a good place for a quick lunch, but I wouldn't be... More

My husband and I were in the area and looking for somewhere to have a quick meal before visiting the cinema. Rusticos was highly recommended by our hairdresser as somewhere with good food and good value for money. It did not disappoint. Many of the mains were around £6-8 and these are not small portions! The staff were all polite... More

I ate here on a lunch time with my sister. I've eaten here in the past and the food has always been spot on, however today it was ok but nothing outstanding. The staff seemed distracted.

Good quality food at a great price, £62 for 4 meals with sides and 2 bottles of wine. Restaurant was really busy which is always a good sign, plenty of staff around, didn't looked rushed. Meal was really nice and portion size was excellent. Only downfall was the chips, needed cooking longer

I went there for a late dinner last week... The restaurant was not busy and we got sat down straight away. The staff was friendly. I ordered the melon with parma ham as a starter, it was nice, not sensational... As a main, I chose the Rossini Steak and had high expectations about it. At the end, I was a... More
