4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Recommended by the concierge at the Royal Crescent, this small restaurant was exactly what we were looking for (and only a very short walk from the hotel). Friendly, efficient service; great Italian food; very reasonably priced. Easy to overlook since it is on a side street away from the downtown area.

Very cute & quirky restaurant; serving Traditional Italian dishes. My brother in law & I had the calamari to start which was very good.... served with a delicious tartar sauce; my mother in law had the aubergine cake, served with a mint & almond pesto; again a very good dish & my husband had the meat balls from the specials...

My wife and I dined here and we both enjoyed our meals. She loved her chicken pasta. The starters were very good. The garlic bread is must! I had lasagna. It was a bit over done, but still good.

I've been to this cosy restaurant twice now with friends, both times we've enjoyed an excellent meal with great service! This is rapidly becoming my favourite place to go, the tiramisu is very good however the steak is excellent, I like it rare but charred on the outside edge and they get it bang on, it's at the point now...

We love Rustico. Great menu with lots of choice and all cooked in house by the Rustico team. So nice to visit an Italian restaurant which isn't a chain.

Enjoyed a good meal at the Rustico. Interesting and varied menu. The food was good, if a little unimaginative, we weren’t lucky enough to order a dish that was memorable and would encourage us to return. Service was pleasant and swift. Overall a satisfying experience – but nothing special.

Very pleasant ambiance - not fancy but not flat, Easy to have a calm and relaxing meal. The important thing is the food which was very tasty, plentiful and reasonably priced.

A very cosy restaurant with great staff. All the food was wonderful and the staff was great. The home made tiramisu is to die for. Just sad that we can't eat there again since there are a lot of things i wanted to try but it's our Last day in Bath.

Booked after reading reviews but was disappointed my wife's kebab was bland the salad & chips were so salty as to be inedible. My sea bream was well cooked. No bread was offered. Not the best Saturday evening meal out

This is a great place to have a meal authentic Italian food just like we had in Rome, lovely freshly ingredients, great portions & great reasonable prices, varied menu & very polite attentive staff. So good we went there to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary & again for lunch the day after. The restaurant itself is in a little shopping... More
