Warm & friendly

We went to Rutico to celebrate my sister's 50th birthday which was also Mother's Day. The food was delicious-spoilt for choice- the staff attentive & welcoming. We were able to take our own cake & the waiters serenaded my sister, playing 'happy birthday' on a guitar and singing to her. We will... read more

Food very mediocre and surly,unwelcoming, unsmiling waiters who rushed our meal ( I thought my plate would be snatched from underneath me at one point). The staff couldn't wait to get us out of the restaurant. Awful, overloud 'muzak'. Definitely not value for money in my opinion, so back to the other Italian place a few yards away along the... More

After some nice "economical" lunchtime meals we thought it would be a good restaurant for Mother's Day. My husband rang afew weeks prior to this to check if they were doing their normal well priced lunchtime menu. He was assured that they were......great news, so made a booking! On arrival....no booking! On being seated (with some sighing that made me... More

You really get what you pay for in here. Ok if you enter with low expectations. Like an Italian McDonald's

Went for a meal with my husband at the end of August 2014, our first and last time and were really annoyed and disappointed. It was full but there were plenty of staff milling about and chatting to each other they were paying lots of attention to a group of young girls and a large table of people who seemed... More

Good Italian food which tasted great. The pasta dish was full of sauce and not just pasta with a small amount of sauce that you get in some restaurants. The bread and tomato dip was delicious. The salad I had was very tasty and looked lovely.

Had our 1st date here back in 2009 and have been lots of times over the years. Took the Parents and our Neice and Nephews for an evening meal and it was just lovely. The food was as beautiful as ever, the starters they brought out as a treat were gorgeous breads, olives and pastes. They looked after the kids... More

It is sometime since we had visited Rustico but judging by how busy it was (at lunchtime) plenty of diners already know of the quality of the food and prices which are realistic. It took us some time to choose what to eat, the menu was extensive and geared to all kinds of appetites. Our chosen dishes were very tasty... More

Rustico is great, when living in Wakefield it was one of my main stop off points and I really haven't got anything bad to say about it, the food is always delicious with generous portions and the complimentary bread/garlic bread dip is always welcome, especially in current economic climates, where restaurants try to grab as much money as possible from...
