Came here with friends on a Saturday night, the restaurant was very busy and we were seated upstairs which is a small area and quite cramped. There are bits of flooring missing near the stairs and floor here is quite slippy. Obviously we understand that when it is busy you expect to wait a little longer than usual. Ordering the... More

Strange one last night. The food was very good but the service was terrible. We booked a table for 8pm but when we arrived there was no free table and had to wait for 20 minutes to be seated. We were fine with this but there is not a sufficient bar area to have a drink at the bar so... More

My husband and I had a rare night out on our own. We were attentively served, we called in on the off chance for a table but they were super busy, they asked if we would like to reserve a table for in a hour so we went and had a drink else where and returned. We had a lovely... More

We've had many a wonderful meal at Rustici's on a number of occasions. However, this evening I fear I was let down. Not only by the food but the service as well! I usually order a chicken dish but this evening I thought I would have a change and went for a salmon steak instead. Much to my delight I... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday night with a group of friends, and the food was good. However, staff were rude, arguing while clearing our table, and another set speaking Italian over us as they served us. Constantly buzzing too close to us but in more of an impatient than attentive manner. Dumping the last of a bottle of wine... More

Enjoyed the food but service disappointing, asked to sample a wine and was met with a roll of eyes from waiter! Also had to wait a while before we were asked for our order, then another wait for the bill...

We regularly visit this restaurant and have nver been disappointed. I tend to order basic pizzas but my partner often requests toppings that are not on the menu together and the chef, so far, has not failed to deliver. All the staff are friendly and helpful, everything done with a smile! Prices still very reasonable. Well done Rustico, see you... More

Really nice food, decent enough service but as usual we were never asked if we wanted a desert or a coffee, such a shame because the mains are excellent and so is the ambience.
