We eat here on a regular basis, the food and service is always excellent with a good and varied menu to suit most tastes and budgets. Possibly the only place in Wakefield to serve Red Peroni.

Arrived here without a booking on Saturday night and was able to get a table for two. The table was by the door, but it had plenty of room and felt comfortable. Complimentary bread and olives arrived, I asked for oil & balsamic too. It was amazing! My friend had a seafood salad starter I had king prawns in garlic.... More

We rushed ourselves into Rusticos after a busy evening in Wakefield. I must confess It wasn't my first choice - but it will be from now on. We had a Spag Bol and Carbonara which were both really nice. The Carbonara was my fave, very well made and really moreish. The Spag Bol was delicious there was just a lot... More

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.
