This restaurant was recommended to me as a possible alternative to the Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant in Birmingham. As Gold Card Members we have been going to Jamie's Italian for the 18 months, but I doubt that I will ever go there again after visiting this restaurant. Simply put this restaurant is in a different league, the food, the ambience... More

Second time and still good Italian food and helpful staff. This time music wasn't so loud, so 5 from 5. :-)

This is a charming restaurant with good quality food, good service, good wine list and a lovely atmosphere, definitely my favourite restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter and well worth a visit - a nice venue in the summer to sit outside with a Pinot Grigio and watch the world go by.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it certainly won't be our last - we were recommend to go here after doing a bit of business in the jewellery quarter and we were not disappointed. Although we hadn't booked we were shown to a very nice table close to the window and presented with the very extensive menu... More

Fancied Italian; 'some meaty pasta' was my exact quote!! Chicken livers in masala andncreammtomstart set me up nicely! Rigatoni - with peppers and spicy sausage- Arrabiata was fab-u-lous dahling!! My husband has pan fried Seabass with spaghettti alioli was simply beautiful. Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere. A great restaurant all round.

I visited here for my 40th birthday with my husband and children after reading the reviews and deciding to not go for a chain Italian. Glad we tried this restaurant, it's stylish & authentic. My husband had read excellent reviews on the wild boar stuffed pasta so ordered that, it was absolutely delicious! Please try it. My eight year old... More

This was our third meal at Cucina Rustica but first just as a couple and it was great from start to finish. The staff are so attentive without being in your face the whole time. The food is always so fresh, tasty and full of flavour. It's not overly expensive for food and drinks either and in a wonderful area... More

Great atmosphere, food & service. I've been here a few times with family & friends and every time it has been a pleasure. The menu is interesting and selection of wines are great. I've recommended it to all of my friends. You forget that you're in the centre of Birmingham.
