Our party of 7 ordered various pasta and seafood entrees. It was hit and miss. The ravioli was homemade but not all that tasty. The fish entree was perfectly cooked and delicious. The entree prices are a bit high given what you get for your money. Our server was polite but not personable. He just went through the motions with... More

Every now and then my wife and I go with another aficionado couple to Nino's little gem in Lake Worth. We tell very few people about this because we do not want it to get ruined by the masses intruding. And so far, it is still the wonderful place, with the right kind of customers, it was when we found... More

We live in Lake Worth-year round and eat out every week. We haven't been there in a while--no issue in the past...we just sort of "forgot" about Rustico. It was great to "go back". The owner-Nino was his "usual" gracious self. The food is outstanding. Menu has choices for everybody. Are you a "wine lover",then just look at all the... More

We live in the DC area but come down here probably 30 days a year. We eat out regularly and love finding new spots. Since our place is on Singer, we typically eat out in Palm Beach Garden, Jupiter and Palm Beach itself. But last Wednesday night, we ventured a bit further south. Glad we did. Rustico was delightful, service... More

My wife and I along with our friends J and M just left Rustico having thoroughly enjoyed another truly outstanding dining experience. Chef and owner Nino warmly greeted us and explained his very impressive display of freshly created gastronomical delights including his creative appetizers, fresh catch of the day and homemade pastas. Being from the Isle of Capri in Italy... More

Visited Rustico Italiano this past Saturday with my wife and a good friend of ours. We picked this place based on the reviews from Tripadvisor (and others) while looking for someplace new in the Lake Worth to Palm Beach area. We picked a Winner! Place is small with about 12 tables inside and 4 or so outside on the sidewalk.... More

Lovely Italian restaurant that everyone wishes they had in their neighborhood. This is a Lake Worth treasure that serves up authentic Italian food from an extensive menu... everything cooked to perfection and served by a courteous staff. Always an amazing experience!

As much as we wanted to like Rustico Italiano, we were disappointed. Some of the food is very tasty - osso buck, lamb shank - but it is old fashioned, and focuses on large portions rather than good food. Dishes are also not what you are told they are...an octopus appetizer turned out to be a calamari and octopus appetizer...and... More
