Ate here on Saturday night, party of four. Quickly shown to table, menus given, then waited a good 15 minutes to be asked for drinks. It was busy, but definitely not full. Drinks ordered, food ordered and came pretty quickly (a little too quickly, said my missus). Food was pretty good ( seafood risotto, lasagne, cabonara and special pizza), but... More

We have been to this restaurant before so thought it a safe bet to take visiting friends - what a disaster! The olives arrived with flies and yes, it was a hot night, but flies everywhere does not inspire confidence. Only one of our party was ok with the food, the rest of us were all disappointed. Whilst the staff... More

We've been here a couple of time. My in laws absolutely love the place and go regularly, they are on first name terms with the owners and staff, so I think this is why whenever I go I always feel that the service is brilliant. We were greeted at the door by Staff and shown to our table, a nice... More

Visited Rustico last night enjoyed the meal very very friendly staff had a long chat about Italy mainly Livigno with either the owner or the manager. Couldn't have been made to feel more welcome, been before and will go again.

Always come here when visiting friends in Leeds, as having discovered it on my first visit make a point of eating here every time now. I keep wondering when I will find something to complain about but no - the food is always delicious, the service prompt and friendly and always a lovely atmosphere. Cannot fault it!

We are regular visitors to this town centre Italian restaurant which never fails to deliver on tasty food and good service. Plenty of choice on the standard menu and also a specials board with seasonal options. On a lunchtime they offers a selection of specials at a very good price and portions are a generous. Service is usual fast but... More

Myself and daughter decided to visit Rustico - had been a few years ago but not recently. The food was delicious but we were not made to feel welcome at all. The staff were miserable and not at all welcoming. The food was excellent value and very tasty but the atmosphere let it down so much we will not be... More

We go to Rustico's quite often and are always pleased with everything (as my previous reviews say)but we went on Wed's night 28/5/14 and was a little bit disappointed with a couple of things. We rang to book a table for 2 for 7.00 pm when we got there it was quite busy, we were shown to the 1st table... More
