Super Friday evening meal with the family. Great atmosphere, lovely food, attentive but not over-attentive service. Had the sattimbocca - beautifully cooked and presented, generous portion of vegetables to accompany the meal. Pizza bread starters and affogato to finish rounded things off excellently.

Family of 3 had lunch here on Tuesday. Very popular with nearly all the tables full. Pleasant friendly staff, and gorgeous food. Didn't wait too long for our meals despite the fact it was busy. Would definitely go again next time we're in the area.

The clue was probably in the fact that it was prettybusy on a Sunday night when a lot of other places were almost empty. We had pizzas with Peroni and it was ridiculously cheap but absolutely delicious. I asked for a non-standard selection of toppings on mine and they were only too pleased to make it for me. We had...

I have put 4/5 due to the price of the food, the food is well worth what you get at £5.50 a pizza. Also had the calamari which was plentiful and nice. One issue with this place is the staff, I came on Sunday the 19th February and the older gentlemen who was taking orders seemed miserable and as if... More

After booking through email 5 days prior I phoned at lunchtime to confirm the booking. Was told it hadn't been put in but they could accomodate us! We were seated by the door so I asked to be moved after 20 minuets having not placed our order! Other people were getting seated and order taken before us. Another 10 minuets... More

Enjoyed the meal, but was sat near the door & it was freezing, I was so cold couldn't wait to get out to the car to get warm. Also disappointed that they didn't even have any balloons for Valentine's Day, just seemed... More

First time we went there, we were a party of five, and everyone enjoyed it. Today, my wife and I went (Friday lunchtime), and it was fantastic. I had Bistecca Panini (steak and onion in a panini), and it came with orgasmic chips (yes, they were that good), and a lovely salad (not too much dressing). My wife had lamb... More

We visit Rustico every time we come to Wakefield and look forward to it. The food is always excellent whether lunch or dinner and you really are spoilt for choice. You walk in through the door and are immediately transported to Italy. The waiters are great characters and make you very welcome. I'm already looking forward to my next visit.

We went for lunch at Rustico and had a wonderful meal. We chose from the extensive lunchtime special menu. I had sea bass and it was perfect. My friends' food was also really good. We finished our meal with tiramisu and coffee. A wonderful meal Service was first class and the waiters were very charming and attentive.
