Visited here on a Saturday evening at half 9. Didn't have a booking but managed to get a table and the restaurant was busy even at this time. Was good to be able to find a table even though it was late on! Received a warm welcome and was even recommended cocktails and dishes off the menu. Waiter seemed to... More

Rustico is a most excellent Italian restaurant. The food is very authentic and is served in generous portions. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Rustico used to be my fave restaurant in Aberdeen, but its certainly not as good as before. Service was poor throughout the evening on all courses. We had come as a group, having pre booked, and were on a fixed price menu which should have included coffee and limoncello. We had to ask for coffee, and I had to leave... More

I had the chicken dish which was satisfactory but well over priced for the quality dished up. My wife had the over cooked pork medallions. The plate consisted of 3 small pieces of pork, 2 pieces of apple and a huge portion of mashed potatoes and no other vegetables. At £17.25 very disappointing. Only consolation was the lovely cheesecake and... More

Good food, bit pricey for all that it is. Attentive staff who seem knowledgable about the menu. Lots of stairs - we had disabled person in group however we did book quite late on. Only thing I would say is that top floor needs aircon! We were roasting alive in the heat!!

Just returned to my hotel from dinner at Rustico in Aberdeen. My second visit to Aberdeen...this restaurant has made its way to my No. 1 recommendation for a restaurant in this fine city! We were a business party of 10...not an easy table...yet the service was impeccable...friendly, attentive and responsive to all of us! I had the pan sautéed Salmon... More

I just love this place. I travel the world and this is up amongst the best restaurants I've ever eaten in. I took some clients here the other night on a spur-of-the-moment decision and ALL of us were wowed by the fantastic food. Again, I've never had calamari like theirs, the sea bass again was beautiful - I should mix... More

Its always a sign for a great meal out when you want to go back the day after for dinner again. Rustico will be added to my list of favourites now. We booked in Saturday night, led to a large table, even though there was only 2 of us and brought our drinks promptly. The calamari was excellent, not rubbery... More
