Pane Rustica is a great place to capture lunch. They are really busy at lunch and have a fairly extensive menu. The restaurant is in the south side of Tampa. The rustica comes from the rustic interior but really has a decor that is nicely rustic. Great place to meet friends. We are scheduled to go back for the restaurant... More

They know their menu and make... More

We got takeout turkey sandwiches for lunch from here. They are delicious; I just wish that they put a little bit less turkey.

I have a new favorite lunch spot...my smoked turkey sandwich on baguette was delish! The place has a lot of room so you don't feel crowded and nice atmosphere. The staff were super friendly and helpful. They even have a kids menu...yay!!! Those are the things that make a great restaurant to me. Can't wait to dine again...

This is a great place with a great feel. The lunch is terrific. Try the chicken salad. The sandwich is on great bread and the salad contains pieces of apple which makes it unique. Definitely a good brunch or lunch location!
