Had a wonderful experience at rustico from start to finish. Staff were very knowledgable not only about the menu but also the wine list. Cannot criticise in the slightest, an absolute pleasure

Had a lovely meal at Rustico last night for our anniversary whilst visiting the city for first time. The service and welcome was lovely and staff all smiling and knowledgable. Food was very flavoursome and Prosecco first class. Highly recommend for a nice intimate meal in lovely quirky surroundings x

We visited after a trip to see Bridget Jones at the local cinema. The food was very good. To be truthful the service was far too attentive. Our main course was with us almost before we had finished our starters. We both felt crowded out. There seemed to be so many staff watching the tables. All in all it was... More

Rustico's is a pleasant, smallish Italian restaurant with a decidedly Sicilian flavour. Service is excellent and the menu is adequate. However, the food just misses making this restaurant memorable. I have only visited once so I cannot comment on the entire menu but I had enough to judge some basic things. The bread was stale and cold. A basic mixed... More

Rustic interior, several rooms, stairs and smallish tables. Enthusiastic waiters, sometimes too much but quite Italian style and atmosphere :) Good selection menu + daily specials presented on blackboard. Very good food. A pleasant evening

Tonight I had a wonderful meal at Rustico. First I got complimentary bread, which was great with olive oil, vinegar, and bread. Unfortunately only the first loaf is free, whereas in some Italian restaurants the bread is always free. I then had Garlic bread, which was toasted perfectly and had the perfect amount of garlic. I then had the Cannelloni,... More
