My ABSOLUTE favorite Italian food in the area!!!

You can't get a bad meal here, and the atmosphere is so intimate. These folks are the real deal and everything is prepared fresh to order. They even offer wild game on the menu!!

I've been going to Palm Beach/Lake Worth area for over 10 years and Rustico Italiano is always on the list of places to eat. Food is out of this world, Vegetables are always so fresh and and a great selection of wines. Atmosphere is quaint, but nice and the staff are always very attentive to your needs. I'd highly recommend... More

Been going here for ten years. Nino is great. The menu has changed a bit over the years but here you don't go by that. The specials are special. My wife and I split three courses and have mode than enough. There is a nice selection of wines by the glass and the pour is substantial. Prices are what one... More

Another wonderful,tasty meal with Nino and the boys at Rustico. The owner is part of the dining experience. All of the dishes were perfectly cooked and simply elegant. This is a repeat place for locals and visitors alike. The homemade pasta is wonderful.

A perfect meal. Our first time. The food was fabulous. Wine selection was very good. Desert is a must. A little expensive but worth it. The salad with goat cheese and the veal chop were great.

There are some great traditional, as well as creative, new combinations of food that I have never eaten before in this comfortable dining room in downtown Lake Worth. For instance, my husband and I split an appetizer of fennel stuffed with garlic and zucchini, which was lovely. As a vegetarian, there were not a lot of choices, but enough I... More

Finally some real Italian food in Palm Beach County. You can always judge an Italian restaurant by its pasta, and Rustico Italiano lived up to the hype. The gnocchi, ravioli, and fiocchi were phenomenal and scratch made, which made the meal in itself. The stuffed artichoke special appetizer and limoncello cake were equally delicious and fresh. The service was professional,... More

We dine out a lot. Italian cuisine is probably our most frequent "go to " food when we can't decide mutually about anything else. We discovered Rustico Italiano, years ago. We have never had a "so so" meal. Each dining experience has been flavorful, and delicious. The proprietor Nino, is hands on, he is an amazing chef, and an expert... More

You don't ever fret ordering here. I keep going back so I can trying everything. Everything I have ever had is an award winning meal. You MUST have the truffle ravioli. All his pasta his handmade. So so good that all other Italian restaurants pale in comparison.

We have been living in Palm Beach County for five years now but only recently discovered Lovely Lake Worth, an up and coming claimant to the culinary and artistic crown currently held by Delray Beach a few towns to the South. A bohemian beach community where art galleries,honky tonk music bars, and now it seems fine dining restaurants combine to... More
