Our go-to special occasion place in LP. Good food and wine, and Elaine is the best. Hidden gem in a supermarket plaza.
Located in the Price Chopper Plaza Mall, this cozy restaurant has a unique menu that does not only include the same old dinner choices. Sausage with brocolli rabe tomatoes and olive oil over orchieitte was delicious. Wild boar over gnocci was seasoned perfectly and tender. Salads included items such as hearts of palm were very good and large. They have... More
Today I went with my mother and my son to lunch at Caffe Rustica. I try to take Mom there at least one time per trip. As usual we had a great time and the food was delicious as always. This was the first time my son was with us. Mom had a pizza with cheese, chicken and mushrooms and... More

We ordered the eggplant dish and were very disappointed... Eggplant texture( no breading), unexpectedly creamy overly spicy sauce, the antipasto lacking in vegetable variety....and a fairly hefty price tag.... More
Great wine selection, wonderful ambience, friendly service. The food was outstanding! Wonderful fresh flavors. Well balanced dishes. Don't miss it!
We dined here with friends and family over New Years week. You might not think to try this restaurant as the location in a shopping center is uninspiring! But don't be fooled, Caffe Rustica is putting out some excellent Italian food. Their version of Caesar Salad is fantastic. The pasta with sausage and goat cheese was delicious as was the... More
I have been here a few times, as a couple, and as a party of eight, without reservations, and five of my party were kids. I was treated and served well both times. The wait staff was personable, and the food was delicious. I have a hard time convincing myself to try other restaurants in the area because I know... More
While located on the far side of Lake Placid in the Price Chopper shopper center, it has never disappointed us. It is a small restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. It offers quite a variety of bistro type entrees with an Italian twist. You can order everything from gourmet pizzas to steak, seafood, pasta and more unusual dinner entrees. The... More
