Fabulous As Always!

We dinned again last evening, Tues. 8/11/15 and as always delicious. David our server has been there for over 15 years is one of the best! We shared the Chilean Sea Bass special, the Soft Shell Crab special with fresh tomato salad, Gazpacho soup, Calamari and a heavenly ice cream desert. Every... read more

Unassuming restaurant in a strip mall but free standing. Very nice décor and large in side. The service and food were wonderful. Had the Veal Parmesan which was huge and the Lamb Ragout which was very tasty. Really enjoyed this meal.

We are so lucky to have this wonderful and authentic Italian restaurant in our backyard. We just returned from a second trip to Italy and went to Rustico a few nights later to keep the wonderful memories of our trip going. I've reviewed Rustico before but wanted to give it yet another thumbs up for making it an even better... More

What a treat. We were a party of 12 and we all had different items -- ranging from pasta to beef to chicken to seafood -- and everyone thoroughly enjoyed. Not only was the food well prepared and served beautifully, the service was outstanding. Despite the numbers, everyone was served within about 90 seconds of each other. We were also... More

The service was very attentive but the food was average. The wine selection by the glass was also limited although the bottle selection was good. Frankly for the quality of the food and wine I felt it was over priced,although it does seem that other patrons seem to enjoy their experience.

I have been going to Rustico since it's opening and have never been disappointed. Mangement has always been friendly and professional. Service is excellent. Menu is great along with an ever changing and creative "specials" selection offered daily. I have come here for both business and personal dinners.

Rustico's in Westlake Village is one of the best! The food and service is always terrific. We had the knocki with meat sauce and lamb shank special. Always delicious! David our waiter is the best. Make sure you ask for him. Reservations are always recommended! You won't be disappointed!

It is like going home to Northern Italy! All the food is amazing, especially the specials. We are never disappointed. Reservations are recommended. Try his fresh fish, or the daily risotto. I love the fall butternut squash salad.
