I've eaten here several times in 2016 and if you care more about the taste and quality of what you are eating than being seen in the latest fad eatery this is the place to try. The seafood risotto is fantastic, the lamb shank also worth a try. It's clear unlike some of the places in nearby Leeds which trade... More

We visited here for my friends birthday as a group of 8. As soon as we arrived we were seated and asked what drinks we would like. They gave us around 15 minutes to peruse the menu then took our order. After around 20 minutes the food was brought out. Everyone ordered something different from pizzas & pasta to swordfish....

Visited for a friends birthday recently. The pasta from the specials board I had was so lovely I've been craving it ever since. I'm always apprehensive of coming to Rusticos as my boyfriend always used to get sick afterwards.. (Twice isn't a coincidence) but I was pleasantly surprised. The lobster was gorgeous and the staff really do look after you... More

My partner and I came here and asked for a 1/2 and 1/2 pizza with chips. For some reason, our waiter poised attitude with everything.. Maybe he was having a bad day but I wouldn't return as he spoiled the experience

Went to Rustico with my family last Thursday. The food was great as was the service. I had the salmon in a lobster sauce with prawns and it was really good. I thought the prices were very reasonable too.

Visited this restaurant with family before attending a wedding the next day. There were 30 of us but they knew we were coming. We were split onto two tables Despite there being numerous staff standing around no one took a drinks order, we went to the bar ourselves? After 45 minutes an order was taken for the other table, not... More

Booked a table for two on Saturday night, glad I booked it was very busy. The staff were helpful, friendly and attentive, while we were choosing from the menu they brought some bread and a lovely dip and some olives. The menu is extensive and well thought out. They also have a tempting specials board. The food we ordered was... More
