The service and food are excellent, the atmosphere is also excellent and we were in on a Thursday night. Highly recommended and I'd come back again when in Aberdeen.

We had a leisurely lunch at the friendly Sicilian restaurant in the heart of Aberdeen just off Union Street. Starters of fatty prosciutto delightfully served with rocket, olive oil and lemon, and olives, olive pâté and grissini bread sticks. For mains I had grilled mullet and sea bream fillets with crispy skin with spaghetti and sauce and my friend had... More

So me and my partner fancied going out for a quick meal before heading into town. We turned up at rustico's without a booking on a Saturday night and they managed to squeeze us in which was hugely appreciated. The meals were up to their great high standards. We had mussels and prawns for our starters and both were sublime,... More

Business dinner with wine, food was fair but service was slow and error prone. Venue is looking a little tired and rests on its laurels?

Visited this restaurant with a friend for a pre-theatre meal. It was absolutely terrific (which is more than can be said for the show - Rent: the musical, which was totally inaudible on opening night!) We arrived at 5:30, and were first in. However, the place soon filled up, and when we left, it appeared to be full, which is... More

Visited here as a group & after listening to others I was anticipating a lovely night, how disapointed I am. Lack of space, over cooked pasta, pate with no bread & other things missing from order. There's lots of good Italian resturants in Aberdeen to choose from but unfortunately this isn't one.
