We went for Christmas meal with a group of friends. The restaurant was very busy and quite noisy making conversation difficult. About half of the group are vegetarian and unfortunately there was only one vegetarian option on the christmas set menu however they did say we could chose of the main menu if we preferred. The starter was ravioli and... More

Went with a friend / colleague. Tables are spacious and staff fairly attentive. Food quality was good. Two simple mains and non-alc drinks totally £24

We visited as a group of two couples for a mid week lunch. Non of us had the same starter or main so between us we sampled 8 diferent dishes. Non of us were disappointed. One minor niggle was that most of the main courses didn't come with a carb or veg so one had to order side dishes which... More

Friends had asked our other friends to recommend a venue for a birthday meal while they were in Birmingham and suggested that we joined them. Cucina Rustica was recommended as it was their favourite place . The plan had been for the four of us to arrive early and surprise the `Birthday Girl` but we were running late ( taxi... More

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night. They had a good specials menu mostly consisting of fish dishes which is a nice thing to see. They had ran out of sardines so I couldn't have the starter I picked, but nice to know they only have a limited amount of fish rather than freezers full. Had lobster ravioli for... More

Staying in Birmingham for a couple of nights, our hotel recommended this restaurant. My wife and I had one of our best ever Italian meals here. Would come again next time we visit.

We had a pre-theatre meal here. My husband chose to start with the antipasti misto which to be fair would have fed both of us, followed by a pizza which was good. I had the Bresaola which was lovely followed by sea bass fillets with spaghetti which was absolutely delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection. We had a couple... More

I've worked in the Jewellery Quarter and never visited this place. I used to walk by it on the way to the Hotel du Vin and ignore it. Now I've visited and what a super little restaurant it is. Not Rustica in any way but clean, sharp and with an excellent menu. The wine selection is also good, even the... More

Impromptu visit while staying nearby. What a delightful meal. Gorgeous goats cheese starter with walnuts followed by the most delicious mushroom risotto. Fabulous and great for vegetarians

Had dinner here with a group of friends and the food was amazing! They're clearly used to catering for large groups as there were several others around us, but it never felt too busy or we never felt that they didn't look after us well enough.
