My "go to" Italian

Any special occasion, birthday, anniversary, valentines, or just a treat, Cucina Rustica is my (our) favorite Italian Restaurant. Great food (never had even an average meal) great service and a very pleasant atmosphere. My father's 80th Birthday is particularly memorable, they look after a large... read more

It really was below poor! Food quality was terrible, starters were ready 4 mins after ordering and personally service that speedy is only fast food rubbish! I feel devastated I celebrated my birthday here, therefore will never be retuning! The only positive I can mention is the staff amended the problems with the dishes and were very apologetic.

My father's 80th Birthday is particularly memorable, they look after a large group of us impeccably and really made his evening.

I can't fault this lovely, simple, authentic Italian restaurant. Much prefer the small menu of traditional dishes (no chicken tikka pizzas to be found here!). Modest, cosy decor, pleasant staff and tasty, well preparde food, ideal for spending a leisurely Sunday. I found the music a little loud at first and they willingly lowered it for me. Italian people were... More

I don't want to knock this place as it is one of the best italian restaurant Birmingham has to offer. Our waitress was fantastic and the hostess was very efficient. However a screaming baby throughout a Saturday evening meal was not pleasant. I know it's not the restaurants fault but they could have been seated in a corner rather than... More

We were a party of 8 and had an extremely pleasant evening. We were all impressed with our food and the wine was very reasonably priced. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. We were one of the last tables to leave and were not pressurised into leaving. Relaxed atmosphere and I would happily return again.

Three of us were in Birmingham on business staying at Hampton Broad Street and wanted a good restaurant not far from the hotel. We walked in to a local area and found there to be a good variety of restaurants. We hadn't booked so were relieved that we were able to get a table at Cucina - although we had... More

I really like the fact that you can wonder in on a Tuesday night at 10pm and be welcomed in with a great table and a friendly service. The food was great and we were left alone with a lit candle looking out the window onto the quiet streets.... Perfect and exactly what we needed
