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.

We took our friends out to dinner for their 10th anniversary to Rustico. We had been told by other friends that this was a nice restaurant and we decided to try it. We were very happy to tell you that the food and the service were excellent and I would highly recommend it if you like Italian food. Our table... More

i always enjoy dining at Rustico. The ambiance is very relaxed, less stuffy than sister restaurant Tuscany, and the simple food made with very fine raw materials, and the well-trained servers are always first class. We brought and opened 2010 Bessin Vamur and enjoyed bruschetta appetizer, salads (Caesar and buffalo mozzarella and heirlooms), veal Milanese and sea bass. All dishes... More

This is a weekly visit for my wife and I as well as the whole family. Family owned restaurant that makes everyone feel as a part of the family. We rarely order off the usual menu as the weekly specials are new and different. Enjoy!

A nice restaurant in a residential area of Westlake Village, CA. We have been there several times over the years and the food and the service are always very good.

Not only do you get a lot of choices -- the number of specials was amazing -- but they are very accommodating to make sure you get what you want. The fish I ordered was prepared to perfections and the roasted potatoes were the best I ever had. Desert was incredibly delicious and our waiter was very charming. My husband... More

We are from Dallas- staying in thousands oaks at the four seasons. This restaurant was very close so we gave it a try. Our waiter David was AMAXING - and the food hot the spot. We had 4 glasses of wine - salad and entrees for 79.00 . This place was a great choice for us!

My family eats here at least once a week. Mauricio prepares everything perfectly and Monica makes the best lemon drops!

Tried tripadvisor as we drove from San Diego to Santa Barbara after a long, tiring flight from Baja. As always,tripadvisor came through with a great place that was only three miles off the 101N. On a Sunday around 6:30 they seated us right away. So much better than picking a Marie Callender type place one could see from the freeway.... More
