A large group of us enjoyed an evening at this lovely Italian restaurant. The food was wonderful - the desserts are to die for (pistachio cheesecake!). They have a nice selection of homemade ravioli - everyone enjoyed their meals. The salads were light and fresh. I highly recommend it.

I went to this restaurant by chance. My friend of 35 years and I were having a rare girls night out, while I was in town visiting my Mother-in-law. What a gem this place is. Food is tasty, the waiters are charming and Nino the owner is great, telling stories of his homeland Capri Italy. A must visit if you... More

This is a Lake Worth gem! We had reservations at another restaurant which didn't work out, so we walked over a block and found this little gem of a place. It was a Tuesday night and it was surprisingly busy, with every table inside taken, but there was a table outside for four which was just perfect! I ordered the... More

Had dinner at Rustico this evening. This is a great little Italian restaurant in Lake Worth. Nino the owner is in the dining room and interacts with the customers through out the meal. I had the veal saltimbocca and my wife had the lamb shank with pasta. Both were excellent. This is a restaurant to try ! But make a... More

Rustico is a tiny bistro in the heart of downtown Lake Worth. The walls are lined with some of the finest Italian wines you could find in one place - except for Italy. The owner, Nino, from Capri scurries around the dining room checking on every table. He makes everyone feel at home there. We had the stuffed clams for... More

I have been in the restaurant business for over 40 yrs, from Boston to Florida and Rustico Italiano has the finest of classic Italian cuisine without having take out a 2nd mortgage. Of the hundreds of restaurants I've enjoyed over the past 4 decades, Rustico is at the top of my list. My favorite is the veal marsala...so properly prepared... More

This place came highly recommended, had the pasta as i was told it was homemade, maybe it was but because i was overcooked it was hard to tell, also the sauce was garlicky, if you talk to Italians that live there they will tell you they do not understand why the excess garlic when visiting italian restaurants in the US,...

If you are looking for a great Italian Restaurant, look no further. Rustico is it! I was raised in the Bronx by an Italian family, enjoyed going to Arthur Avenue and Mulberry Street. We drive 40 minutes each way but it is well worth it. Last Saturday we an had an appetizer of baked clams that was incredible. We also... More

My brothers and I enjoyed a excellent dinner with a very authentic atmosphere on our Christmas Eve evening. We arrived for our reservation on time and were offered a glass of wine while we waited at a outside table for our reserved table for approximately 30 min. We were happy they provided us with a drink for the delay. Upon... More

This transcends mere Italian dining. Our meal can only be described as a sensual experience. The chef is Italian and exudes a natural, sincere, unforced warmth and charm. And he's got a good sense of humor as well. We dined at Rustico last Saturday night and the service was as competent, unpretentious and genuine as the food. We started with... More
