“Average food, inferior location, bad value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

The food is average to below average and expensive. The location is neither a casual dining location nor a formal location. I didn't like it

“Nice Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2011

Really nice restaurant with all the little things that make you enjoy yourself. Food was ok but I think I picked the wrong things. Everyone else at the table was oohing and aahing. Was disappointed that they forgot my prawns in my prwan pasta!!!!!! It was replaced after I'd eaten half the dish but never mind, it wouldn't put me off going again.

“Fantastic Italian food, at a great price and super staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011

A hidden gem in Dubai. We have been to Il Rustico lots of times and they have always impressed with the quality of food and fantastic value for money. Inside Ridges Plaza this 'rustic' restaurant always has a great atmosphere, food and staff. Better than most of the 5 star hotels.
