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

High quality Italian food, large portions, great service, in a festive part of Tel Aviv. It's a bit loud inside, but that would be my quibble.

Were for a business lunch.Delicious eggplant mediterrano and a fresh salad. For a main risotto al pescatore and linguine seafood. Everything were excellent. A lot of seafood in the both of the pasta dishes. Service was friendly and fast. Highly recommended!

High quality Italian food - best seafood risotto I tasted, and a very tasty chocolate pizza dessert, Service very good as well. Not cheap, but would definitely go back.

The bottom line is that when we got our check my eyes opened wide like "what??.." I mean - the food was good, perhaps even great: We had the Cherry tomatoes salad (good but 48nis for a bunch of tomatoes??) and then the gnocchi red-sauce (ok) and the linguini tuna (awesome!). The kids had the kids dishes: plain pizza (so-so..)... More
