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

We have just had a family celebratory meal at Rustico's and it was excellent. The menu had lots of choice and catered for our wide ranging tastes. The service was very good and the staff were really friendly. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and there weren't too many other people there but the atmosphere was pleasant and relaxed.... More

This little place in Wakefield town centre advertises itself as a traditional authentic Italian eatery and it was sold to me as such. Sadly the food here is about as Italian as fish & chips and they really have no business calling it an Italian restaurant. The staff all look Italian and they seem to talk the language but I... More

I had lunch with a few friends. I had Crayfish and Mango salad. The reason I am scoring this down a bit is only due to the amount of balsamic vinegar on the Crayfish. In my opinion, about 3 times as much as should have been, so very hot to taste and couldn't taste anything of the crayfish. Some members... More

We visit here every 2 - 3 months. Its a nice place and serves some lovely dishes. Its too badly priced either. Never had a bad meal in the 6/7 years we have been coming.

A great at lunch we had today at Rustico! From the prawn cocktails to the belly pork and the rest, excellent quality and standard. The pasta dish is of a generous amount. They even wrapped it a doggy bag for us. How great service!

We ate to celebrate the birthday of my lovely friend Fiona. First time for me and my hubby but not really unfamiliar to the other 2. It was them who chose the restaurant based on their earlier experience. My food was ok indeed, both the salad and the main course chicken. The other 3 persons on our group was however... More
