Another outstanding meal!! We both had calamari to start which was cooked to perfection and comes with a lovely fresh salad and a dip. I normally avoid salads at all costs but never here because it's fresh. I had surf and turf as a main meal which was cooked to perfection and piping hot - I asked for the meat... More

Have been here before, but not for a long time. We were greeted with a smile and were seated in a window seat. Almost immediately we were given garlic bread, dips and olives. We both had starters, I opted for prawns with melon and my husband prawns with avocado, both very nice. I can't remember the Italian names of these... More

Been trying lots of different place over the past few weeks, and have been disappointed with some of our visits, but glad we have gone back to rustico . Great staff not in your face, and very friendly. Starters great main great, cheese board and desert great. Just a very nice visit. Will be making this a regular place now,... More

visited here by chance whilst travelling through. Food was average. service lacking as we didn't get everything we ordered and given dirty glass. water dripping through ceiling when we visited and entertaining watching member of staff sticking his hand up through light fitting to mop up water. wouldn't return.

Had a pre-gig meal here. The garlic bread was great. Pizza pretty decent. Service good. Will go back.

Wow, what a lovely little place, The place has a wonderful 'family' atmosphere, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive yet very professional at the same time. The food is good ~ perhaps not 'brilliant' but very good, cheap and cheerful. I've been 3 or 4 times now & would definitely recommend Rustico's to anyone who likes traditional Italian food... More

Visited Rustico for dinner with family and we all enjoyed a very pleasant meal. Service was good, with pleasant, attentive staff. Food was well presented and very tasty. There is a good range of dishes on the menu with quite a few interesting options on the specials board as well. Would definitely visit again.

We've eaten at Rustico several times now, the staff are always so friendly. The menu is really broad, you can have starter size pasta dishes (which suits me so well), the specials board is always tempting and value for money is really outstanding. It's always busy so book.
