Thoughtful service, delicious food, good wine selection, homemade soft breadsticks, cozy, intimate, and did I mention ... delicious food? It requires a drive across the lake to go, but it's always worth the trip. Wish we had one on the eastside ...

We had a problem with our bill, which we saw when our Mastercard bill came. Our receipt total was not the same as our mastercard bill, which indicated we had paid a quite large tip, but we had left money on the table. The food was fine, but really quite overpriced. We have called 3 times now and there is... More

I have been hearing about this place for years but I don't live in West Seattle and I had heard it was hard to get a table because they don't take reservations. Yesterday we were on our way home from the Vashon Ferry and decided to stop - it was a wet Sunday after a home football loss so we... More

This is one of our favorite places in West Seattle. The food is fantastic, service is always great. Everything is delicious, I have never had a bad meal here. The atmosphere is wonderful. I definitely recommend a trip to La Rustica if you are in the Seattle area. It's worth the trip!

If you like Italian, this is the place to come in West Seattle. If you want a seat, line up early for the 5 PM opening and you will be sure to get a table. On the Friday we visited, there was a line and it was worth it. They have super appetizers and so much variety on the menu... More

Was staying in West Seattle and wanted a local place to eat dinner. This place came up on my phone and turned out to be a gem. Went for dinner on a Thursday night with my husband and sat outside. The view and ambiance was wonderful and the food was amazing. Everything was fresh and well prepared. I would highly... More

La Rustica is truly a labor of love. The Pellegrini family has created a true gem in the heart of West Seattle. Situated on Beach Drive SW, overlooking the water to the west, you will truly make memories in this lovely restaurant. But be patient, some nights can be very busy, but well worth the wait. Try the lamb shank,... More

10 of us had dinner this past weekend at La Rustica. It was very busy so reservations are a must. We were seated exactly on time. Several of us shared a meal which added $7.50 to the cost but you got two salads with the share. We had the wild boar shank and it was really quite good. Fall of... More

My wife had the linguini with prawns and I had the special which was rock fish with linguini and vegetables. Both came with a salad. Our friends had risotto dish and a gluten free pasta which...
