Better than Capri, "Mama" must be in the kitchen

just like being in Italy, only better. as a mixture of Italian music plays in the background, Nino, who is the owner, will show you the specials of the day.. a three course meal for $35.about $50 pp with a glass of wine. If you want to be in Italy without getting on a plane, this is the place to... read more

Expect the unexpected. Appetizers that are memorable. Pastas and main courses that are to die for. This is not your ordinary Italian restaurant. It is a foodies paradise! Beautiful selection of game: elk, bison, quail. My favorite dessert is the pistachio cheesecake.

First visited this restaurant last year with very positive results and our return to Rustico Italiano yesterday did not disappoint. They offer a small, traditional setting with great food and service. Long history of favorable reviews are well deserved.

Can't safe enough good things! From the apps to the dessert I actually could not pick out what my favorite thing was. Always delicious! All fresh ingredients and all the pasta is home made. We had stuffed fennel, stuffed calamari, veal, pasta and lemoncello cake for dessert. One thing was better than the next. Highly recommend. One of the best... More

My wife, stepson and myself dined here on Sunday April 5th, 2015. This happened to be Easter Sunday. We were seated rapidly and quickly brought out menus and drinks. We perused the menu and then the cart with the nightly specials was brought out. Oh, my! From the cart we chose a stuffed artichioke filled with bell pepper strips, olives,... More

I feel lucky that I just happened to walk by this place. It is charming, authentic and really feels like I am visiting Italy. The food and the service are the very same way. The owner, who I think is also the chef, is very hospital and individually selects wines that he thinks are the best. You must go to... More

The hospitality stands out throughout the dining experience. Food is not the usual dishes. Many special touches of the chef are evedent in the menu. The execution is very good. Appetizers I have not seen on a menu was the first indication it was going to be a special experience.

Wonderful Italian restaurant, one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten at. This is my third visit and one meal is better than the next. The service is impeccable. My only complaint is I am a snowbird from NY and I will have to wait until next year to have dinner again. Patricia Milani
