We were in a slow night at Rustico. The food is quite ok, still quite far from real Italian, but nevertheless fine. The service is nice. Overall not bad for a night out with kids.

If you choose to eat at Rustico - I suggest to order a place at the bar - where you can see your food cooking right in from of you and enjoying the great company of the chefs. I honestly think this is one of the better high quality restaurants in town with accessible yet fascinating fusion cuisine.

Non kosher but really delicious and they have exquisite dishes such and pasta with eggplant which is sort of an Israeli Italian fusion.

I took a friend from the US for a dinner at Rustico.. All was fine and tasty until I found hair deep inside my Gnocci meal. The only compensation apparently known to this place is a free dessert. But if you don't want it, "sorry" is all you will get... Never returning there again.

Great pizzas! We went there just looking for a place to eat and opted for a business lunch set comprising a salad and a pizza. Both were very good, service quick and efficient, ambience very nice :)

As a single female traveller, it was a refreshing change to come into a restaurant and feeling like I have always came here. Even waiting for a table outside, the staff where apologetic for the wait and I received a lovely drink in the queue. The meal was nice but the service and the interaction of the chef's and staff...

Very good food! We sat on the bar so got extras in drinks. I guess that could have affected our total experience but we really enjoyed ourselves. Value for money, portions are big enough and not only a 'painting' in your plate and the atmosphere is lots of fun!

I don't know whether I came at an odd time or if the service I received was indicative of how the Rustico is around the clock but I most certainly do not understand where all the great reviews for it are coming from. The food is mediocre at best. It says a lot that the lemonade I had was the... More
