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

The first thing that strikes you as you enter is "what a charming restaurant"! It is sort of a cross between the quaint bistros of France and Italy. The owner has gotten a relatively large number of tables into a small space, and yet I felt very comfortable(aedequate privacy) at our own table. The charm of the restaurant extends to... More

Mr and my girlfriend ate here on may 31 2014 and it was excellent. The stuffed artichoke was the best I've had . My girlfriend had the gnocchi for her entree and she loved it even cleaned the sauce off the plate with the bread. I had the ausobuco and I must say it really was outstanding the portion was... More

I am amazed reading all the great reviews. Maybe we just hit a bad night? Admittedly, we did roll in late, 9:30, on a Harley, soooooo... But the service was mediocre at best and the food -- whoa. First of all, we ordered an artichoke app to share and were served two. Ok, no biggie, but both orders were cold.... More
