Every time we visit the Gold Coast we come here for dinner. It is fantastic home cooked food that caters for everyone and every taste (even my very fussy husband!). Servings are always huge. They just need to find a bigger space so we can always get a table!

WORST SERVICE EVER! A group of friends and myself booked a table here for dinner on a friday night, and after being questioned at least 5 times about how many people exactly were turning up, were made to move twice, eventually being shoved in a corner where our chairs were back to back with the table behind us, virtually meaning...

Four of us,all locals, booked and dined here on Friday 27th December. We'd heard about La Rustica and figured we give it a go. Well what a great local find! We were seated inside and it was pretty warm. All the outside tables were occipied otherwise that's where we would have preferred to sit. Being quite humid it was slightly... More

We went there on December 31st 2014. We had a booking for 4 people at 8pm and were seated promptly. Service was fast and efficient and the resturant is BYO which is great. We ordered a garic pizza, risotto, steak and two pasta dishes. The risotto was honestly one of the greatest I have ever eaten, my partner said the... More

I'm currently on the Gold Coast for a holiday and after a huge day at Dreamworld we were exhausted and wanting good, authentic, simple Italian. I had a squiz on Trip Advisor and this restaurant came up....I normally avoid restaurants in the real tourist strip of places I travel to, but this did not disappoint.... This is a bit of... More

Son-in-law: this rice is taking me to outer space! Daughter: Turkey and Italy - a match made in heaven. Other daughter: generous servings(we were hungry but still had a doggy bag) Husband: melt in your mouth beef. It's changed my BBQ habits for good. A great way to spend Christmas Eve.

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...
