My wife requested to go back to Great Neck's Cafe Rustica for her birthday. We brought more family members this time and I'm happy to report they have not lost their touch! Food and service remain impeccable! Everyone was very happy! You will be too!

Our go to spot for a quick mid week dinner. Their salads are great and you can add any protein you want. The pastas are also solid. Comped dip and bread on the table. Good service every time.

Have eaten here often over the years and it can be counted on as a reliable neighborhood eating establishment. The service is consistently attentive, and the veal and chicken dishes as well as the pastas are always fresh and tasty. The chef does tend , however, to be a bit too generous with the sauces so when you order, my... More

The salads are great with any protein you want to add. The pastas are very good. The service is friendly and efficient. Nice spot for a quiet dinner. Never crowded when we eat here which is fine with us since the food and service are what counts.

Went here for the first time in years and was pleasantly surprised with the results. Went for dinner on a Saturday night and got good attentive service. The staff was friendly and the food good. It was actually pretty crowded which was surprising for the area. It's one of the only options remaining in the town and one that is... More

We expected a little better from the reviews, but it was very typical Long Island Italian. Don't need to come here again. Plus, the floors under the tables and the bathroom were filthy!

It was my wife's birthday weekend and I had to come up with something special. I had a friend who was performing at the Great Neck Arts Center. My friend was performing for a half hour as the warm up for a larger band. After the warm up performance we ducked out to eat at The Cafe Rustica. The plan... More
