I've been to Rustico with my family about 5 or 6 times now. The food is always extremely good with the prices being very good value. Food is always fresh and the service good. Lunchtimes are particularly good value, my wife and I called in one day, had a very nice lunch and drinks for less than 20 quid. A... More

After having eaten here on many occasions it's such a shame that on my most recent visit I was very disappointed with the service and the food. We had booked a table and upon arrival we didn't feel very welcome and were seated on a small table by the doorway, which hadn't even been set for the required number of... More

My recent experience of Rustico was, unfortunately, quite mixed. I visited with family, and we had pre-booked, arriving at the restaurant at approximately 7pm. I was glad we had thought to make a reservation because the place was full to the rafters! We were immediately seated by a pleasant (but quiet) waiter, who showed us the way to our table,... More

Rusticos is always full of life.. Families dining and laughing together, groups of friends catching up and couples grabbing a bite to eat somewhere local and relaxed. There's no dress code, there's no expectation to order 3 courses, you just rock up (they'll fit you in) and order whatever tickles your fancy and you're always met with good service and... More

The lunchtime menu is excellent value, with good portion size and good tasty food. Free garlic bread is a nice touch. However the evening full price menu is disappointing, as the portion size of the pasta dish was smaller and the garlic bread was not forth coming! Restaurant was busy, though this meant service suffered; rushed and impersonal.

If you have some sort of amazing palette and inbred expertise of Italian cuisine then don't come here. For the rest of us mere mortals, the non-snobby ones, this is a great place. The food is always hot and very nice, menu extensive, impressive specials board, good service, nice little bread and olive freebies and all at a very reasonable... More

This was my second visit to Rustico's and I was very dissappointed! There were 4 of us having a meal and the food was ok but my husbands steak was chewy when he complained the waiter just said "oh chewy" no apology! Once we had finished our meal we asked for our bill, the waiter brought it over and my... More

I took my niece and nephew (11 and 8) for lunch on Saturday and I cannot express how enjoyable it was. I've been to the restaurant numerous times and always enjoyed it but never taken the kids. Love the little touch of bread and tomato they bring on arrival, my Carbonara was beautiful and the chicken and bacon for the... More
