Excellent pizza and pasta

Friendly service, broad choices on the menu, good wine list Noise level was a bit high because of a private room event.

What a lucky find this was! Close to our hotel, we found this restaurant to be cozy, well lit, and the servers were extremely friendly. We started with some marinated olives, and devoured them all. Next, our waitress brought out some fresh focaccia with a warm white bean dip...delicious again! ( I don't like cheese, and asked for another bread... More

Checking in the Revere Hotel on a very cold night, we didn't want to travel far. So we dined at the Rustic Kitchen, which is attached to the hotel. We didn't have a reservation on this Thursday night at 7pm, but were seated after a brief 5 minute wait. All meals were wonderful. Companion had a shrimp and artichoke pasta... More

Italian food... but not in the traditional North end kind of way. I actually liked the selections. I had a short rib stroganoff with hand made pasta and a mushroom sauce. There was a variety of wood fired pizza and I wanted my husband to try the wild boar lasagna but he opted for a more sedate pasta bolognese which... More

My husband and I visited our college student daughter last weekend between snow storms in Boston. We had tickets for a late theatre show and a reservation for Rustic Kitchen at 6:45pm (which they called to confirm at 11am; evidently a mild snowstorm, at least by Boston standards, was predicted and they wanted to make sure people were coming). Due... More

Stayed at the Revere Boston Commons Hotel on a frigid winters night, Rustic Kitchen was the perfect spot to stay out of the cold. The staff was friendly and helpful, menu had a lot of salad and homemade pasta options.

We have seen the Rustic Kitchen numerous times when staying next door at The Revere Hotel, but had not eaten there before last night. I was skeptical, I think because I never trust restaurants connected to hotels will be any good. Last night, though, we were tired and it was cold out, and we didn't feel like venturing far from...

I heard so may good reviews about this restaurant and went there one evening for dinner. The place was warm and welcoming. Staff was very courteous and paid a lot of attention despite that being a pretty crowded night. I went for a margherita pizza and it was served in no time. Crust was thin and nicely crispy however too... More
