My wife and I decided to try Rustico because we pass by it so often and the atmosphere looked nice. We shared the fried calamari and shrimp risotto. I have to admit, it really wasn't anything special, it was tasty though. The owner kept trying to push us into buying wine and more food, in which we were not interested... More

We were walking in downtown Lake Worth and decided for Rustico Italiano, we immediately liked the cozy atmosphere and the menu with extensive wine list at the right price. I had cappellini italiano right after stuffed clams (delicious)+ My husband picked holy risotto and we loved it. Both our choices were great and very tasty and we picked a special... More

It was only few weeks ago that I was there at Rustico with my wife. I don't go there just because I have been friend with Nino for several years, but especially because when I am there, I can get a very high quality food that reminds me of the test of home. Nino, who is the owner and the... More

The atmosphere was quaint and intimate. Service was superior. The owner, Tony came up to our table a few times to be sure everything was to our liking. Tony was very personable, but even more so, this had to rank with some of the best Italian food I've ever eaten! Mostly locals, but don't let Palm Beach snobbery scare you... More

The entire experience was off for this visit. We had a reservation that they did not find. So they set us a table in haste right at the front door. As soon as we were seated three different staff came by the table one after another and pushed bottle water. The waiter was hard to understand as he gave the... More

In the heart of Lake Worth Florida just west of the ocean on Lucerne Ave is this charming little Italian Restaurant called Rustico. The food is simply delicious and priced very reasonable. The decor of this restaturant allows for a romantic night out for two or bring your friends and drink and eat the night away. You won't be disappointed.

We have been to Rustico many times before, but not in a while, so we went back again last night just to see what is going on. Nino the owner is one of the really great guys around, and with charm, grace and cordiality he runs his restaurant as if it were his own home. He is everywhere. And he... More

My husband and I just returned from dining at Rustico Italiano tonight. We had a wonderful evening and felt like we were the only people there even though the restaurant was busy. The owner Nino was visible and was very attentive to all customers. Both of our meals were delicious, fresh, were served beautifully and made to perfection. The homemade... More

Living in Manhattan, as I do, and traveling to Italy yearly, I pride myself on knowing really good Italian food. Nino is an outstanding chef.....his amazing unique appetizers.....eggplant timbale...peppers stuffed with " MAGIC"..........I could go on and on. His pastas... .ravioli stuffed with pumpkin....or squash ....or his superlative Bolognese sauce. This is not a restaurant for baked ziti or chicken... More
