We have been dining at Rustico for years and have never been disappointed! It is an Italian neighborhood restaurant. The food and service are always great. They have daily specials and a great menu. We especially love the black mussel appetizer and the Chilean sea bass entree. Be sure to make reservations because they are packed most nights. Great lunch... More

I have lived in this area for 20 years. This restaurant is a favorite take out and dine in place. (Upscale takeout). The food has always been very good and the service is outstanding. Never a bad meal.

It is typically difficult for myself to eat at Italian restaurants because I don't eat dairy but Rustico had a great mix of Italian and steakhouse favorites that they are willing to customize to your needs. My favorites are: beet salad, Sand Dabs, potato encrusted salmon and their dessert tray and wine list of course! Their house Pinot Noir is... More

Have been here about 5 times. It's always good. Service last Thursday was excellent. They let us change tables to the quieter room. Food was great and fairly priced for the quality. $20 corkage fee, which seems reasonable. We'll be back.

We dinned again last evening, Tues. 8/11/15 and as always delicious. David our server has been there for over 15 years is one of the best! We shared the Chilean Sea Bass special, the Soft Shell Crab special with fresh tomato salad, Gazpacho soup, Calamari and a heavenly ice cream desert. Every bite was scrumptious! Would highly recommend Rustico, ask... More

Unassuming restaurant in a strip mall but free standing. Very nice décor and large in side. The service and food were wonderful. Had the Veal Parmesan which was huge and the Lamb Ragout which was very tasty. Really enjoyed this meal.

We are so lucky to have this wonderful and authentic Italian restaurant in our backyard. We just returned from a second trip to Italy and went to Rustico a few nights later to keep the wonderful memories of our trip going. I've reviewed Rustico before but wanted to give it yet another thumbs up for making it an even better... More
