Having been to Italy twice in the past two years, I'm kind of snooty about "Italian" restaurants in the U.S. and Cucina Rustica definitely did not disappoint. From the grilled artichoke appetizer all the way through the limoncello to end the night as the stars started popping out, the whole thing was perfect. They knew it was our anniversary and... More

The food and variety were very good and all of the appetizers and entrees we ordered were delicious and well prepared. They had music on the patio but it was a little bit hot for us so we ate indoors. Would definitely recommend and eat here again.

We frequent this restaurant and are finally getting around to reviewing it. You can't beat the atmosphere and ambiance. The food is very good but not to die for. Over all for a tourist town I'd rate it far above average.

We went there on a friend's recommendation, and it was a very good option in Oack Creek. We ate outside on the patio. The service was attentive, but casual enough. The food was very good. The pasta portion was huge, and their seafood pasta in a red spicy sauce was delicious. Great overall.

After a long day we called in an order to Cucina Rustica for chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and bruschetta. They told us it would only take about 15 minutes and they were just about spot on with that. We sat at the bar a little while waiting on our order and everyone was very friendly, asked if we wanted a glass... More

The service is top-notch, with very friendly and smiling waiters who'd also advice you regarding your food choices. I am particularly sensitive to eating low-fat, healthy, nutritious and protein-filled fare, and they were able to satisfy my requirements. Very nice ambiance, too: each room is decorated in a very special way and the terrace is great (heated in the evening... More

Excellent but pricey. Great bar and service. Food and menu is Italian and quite varied. Reservations a must. Usually full of well off patrons.

The patio was so beautiful as the sun was setting and the fires started up - perfect atmosphere not to mention the guy playing music & singing - fabulous!! And the food and wine was sooooo good, I couldn't even order dessert I was so full!

Having enjoyed dining at Dahl & Diluca not long ago, we were eager to try this restaurant owned by Lisa Dahl. My friend had steak and stated that it nothing special. I tried a bite and agreed with him. My dinner, veal piccata, was fine, but not as good as I had hoped for. The portion of very thin veal... More
