Excellent Pizza

Rustico is an excellent and consistent restaurant. Reservations are needed and worth it as it's in a prime location. Great starters, pastas, and pizza. Highly recommended.

I know this place since the week it was opened (I guess almost 10 years now). We visited it again yesterday to celebrate a birthday. We were party of 7 and everyone were extremely happy with their food as well as the service. Must admit that this is my favorite Rustico and that their newest branch on Sharona was a... More

Took our daughter & friend to relax after grueling exam. Everyone was very hungry and we went for their great topping pizzas, pasta & anti-pasti. Everything was ample and tasty but arrived at once. In retrospect we should have probably had the pizzas first, enjoyed them and then moved on. For dessert we enjoyed the tiramisu & a pistachio-based cake.... More

There are probably one or two Italian places in Tel-Aviv that are as good, maybe even better, but Rustico offers a reasonably priced Italian food that is always good and sometimes even excellent. Ate there dozens of times and the experience was always good.

If you are looking for more than good Italian food (location, atmosphere and people) - Rustico is a good choice. The location is great, at the right part of Rothschild ave. The food is tasty, and the atmosphere is happy. Prices are average, so it's a nice choice.

Great Italian food and a wide choice of wines, not to be missed in the Rotchild area of Tel Aviv. We were among the first to come for dinner and then later there was the queue outside to come in, this is a good sign, the staff is friendly and the service is fast.

Rustico must be one of the best in Tel Aviv. The food at this Italian restaurant is outstanding. It is well worth a visit, you won't be disappointed. You need to book a few days before especially for Fridays and Saturdays. Very popular.

A lovely but noisy Italian place. A great menu which was totally ruined by the fact five out of eight of us had to return the food as it was cold. Cold food drives me nuts and I certainly won't be going back. Also not cheap, so why bother and parking is also a pain in tel aviv
