Cafe Rustica is always my "go to" restaurant. The menu is very varied, including lots of gluten free if needed, and there is something for everyone. The food is always good and portions large. I always have a lunch for the next day. The help is really attentive and nobody hovers over you if you want to sit and talk... More

Had a couple of farewell luncheons and were extremely pleased. Service was good, not rushed. Food was very good and the overall quality over cost was also very good. Wouldn't hesitate going back for an evening dinner with my wife and family.

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
