A lovely little restaurant in Surfers. None of the flash hype here just plain old good food, good service and a great price. BYO as well which is a rarity these days. A varied menu with Italian and Turkish which caters for all tastes. Gluten free pasta is also an option. Recommended for any occasion.

We used tripadvisor to find a restaurant and this one came up with high recommendations. Not too hungry we just decided to share a pizza. We were not disappointed. Perfect crush, toppings, flavours... even the prawns on the pizza were delicately cooked to perfection somehow. Yum. A bottle of cooled tap water was provided. Coffee and baklava for desert.

Myself and three friends sought this gem out as it was rated highly on trip advisor and were so glad we did! We at first had reservations as the street appeal wasn't quite what I was expecting and we almost walked on thinking it couldn't be the same place we had heard about but instead sat down and gave it...

This place was incredibly busy and we expected great things. After a sampling of appetizers and a couple of beers we were less than impressed. I know service in Australia is not the same as what we expect in the US, but spicy food and no water refills (not even an offer of a second round) marred my opinion. The... More

Great location in centre of Surfers - good honest food with lots of flavour. We enjoyed it so much we went back there the next night. Good value for money.

We visited La Rustica and we're very impressed. Our meals were both delicious and generous in size. We had the chicken parma and chicken shish kebab - both excellent. The service was friendly and the environment was warm and friendly. Give this place a try!

small family run Italian with an interesting mediterranean twist, my 15 yr old thought the Chicken Parmy was the best he'd ever eaten in his life, personally my Veal n Mushrooms sent me straight to heaven !!!!! Will be going back again and again

I diverted my wife from wanting to eat at another Italian place down the road into this restaurant. Once we stopped to check the menu - we were hooked into staying by the smells. One of the best pizza crusts I have had in a while - perfectly cooked to be crusty on the outside, yet chewy in the middle.... More

Beautiful aromas emanated from this small cosy restaurant that was full of atmosphere. Food did not disappoint, food full of flavour and all meals were fantastic. Excellent service. Thank you.
