Every gold coast trip includes la rustica!

We can't get enough of this place. Every time we go to the gold coast we dine here. Plenty of vegetarian options, can make everything how we like it and the cannelloni is massive. Love this place 😍

Every time we visit the Gold Coast we drop in to La Rustica and have never been disappointed.This quaint little place is perfect for a casual, relaxing evening out and the food is always amazing. The steak and prawns were cooked to perfection as was the chicken shish. For an indulgent dessert the tiramisu is always delicious and for something... More

Been coming to La Rustic for 25 years for both business & pleasure. Last week had a business associate staying at Surfers, so bought a couple of $70 bottles of red and we whiled away 3 hours grazing thru the menu. Great garlic prawns, superb cannelloni to name a few of the 6-8 dishes, finishing with the house speciality pizza.... More

We chose La Rustica because of the enthusiastic reviews, and had high expectations. They surpassed even those with a wonderful experience. We were celebrating and because they are friendly about BYO we took sparkling. They had lovely flutes for that, and cheerfully swapped to red glasses when we transitioned to our other bottle. The dips plate was delicious, and I... More

I've been in Surfers Paradise for 4 days and until tonight my partner and I haven't had a truly decent meal and experience since we arrived. I'm a chef by trade and a baker/pastry by trade and I was truly impressed by what we ate. My partner had a pizza and I had the risotto. We felt welcomed and valued... More

Thoroughly impressed with everything we ordered. Full of authentic flavour, served quickly and with great service. We chose to sit outside as it was quite warm and busy inside, a warm and family-like atmosphere. Ferrero Rocher and Turkish delight on leaving was a nice and appreciated touch. My new favourite dining go-to, we will definately be back.

I make the point of coming back to the Gold Coast just for the food here! Every time the food is outstanding, the service is fun and friendly and the vibe inside is warm and cosy. You can tell the food is made with love, very authentic and never disappointing. I would recommend to anybody!
