Small restaurant perfect for family dining. Not a lot of atmosphere but the food was good. If you are expecting stellar service and food go to someplace fancier. This place is just good Italian food without the bells and whistles.

I have eaten Italian food all over the world and all around MD, DC and VA, and this is by far the worst place I have eaten in years. The pasta tasted like it had been sitting in fish water and was terrible. The chicken parmigiana and veal parmigiana were thin and burnt, the mozzarella. cheese on top of the... More

We eat at Rustic Oven with great regularity; perhaps too much so for our waist lines. That said, the food is fresh, well-prepared, and a fantastic value. The service is always swift and staff exceptional. Put simply, a tremendous value for home cooked Italian cuisine.

I was out with my wife looking for a place to eat last May and we came here because the Korean restaurant next door had gone out of business.

This is a great place. The food is very fresh and the service is attentive. Went in on a Saturday night around 7 and got seated right away. The food came out quickly (almost too quickly). I will be back.
