Amazing place in West Seattle

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... read 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

Best Italian in Seattle, period. Fantastic ragout, pasta, desserts, wine, service - anything less is wasting time.

Not in the mainstream, however, wonderful authentic Italian dishes. It is very small, so you may need to wait. Only take reservations for six or more. Don't miss. Our family has been here several times and will return again,

Recently went here for a birthday dinner celebration and had a most excellent meal. The restaurant has a great view of the water across the street and a small courtyard so you can dine al fresco. The two appetizers we had and all three entrees were very good. The only thing that could be improved was the dinner salad that... More

We had read all of the excellent reviews of La Rustica and decided to make it our last dinner in Seattle before returning home. Our vacation had been very seafood heavy so an Italian dinner was appealing. We arrived at 7:30 PM and were promptly seated by the owner in the small but pretty dining room. I cannot say enough...
