This was our 2nd visit to Rustico's and the food quality and ambience was the same...Excellent!! We had the escargots for starters which was awesome, and the house special pot roast with mashed potatoes and veggies was excellent. The meat was excellent quality and it was so tender and flavorful. For dessert we had Tiramisu which was just made. Never... More

Rustico is the best Italian food you'll get in Ventura County. The food is always fresh, especially the bread, and you can always expect something good. This is definitely a restaurant where you want to order multiple courses since it's more of a fine dining atmosphere. I always end up ordering their beet salad and branzino with oiled pasta, and...

slightly out of the way but very popular eatery. Open kitchen, small bar area, lots of seating however. Good menu and food is terrific. No problem parking. Service was a bit slow however. Coffee needs improvement.

We expected and were not disappointed at the memorable experience we had here on a very busy Saturday evening, Heather made us feel most welcome and was superb with advice regarding the several dinner specials. The "special" pasta with black truffles was simply superb. We will return for sure!

The food is very good. They have a vegan menu as well as a regular menu. Weekends are a lot of kids. Noisy. We prefer week days.

Had a very good dinner here with friends. We started with an asparagus, egg, and shave black truffle appetizer which was excellent. For entrees we had the Branzino which was superb, and the crispy duck which really wasn't to my liking. Our friends had the Chilean Sea Bass and calamari appetizer which were also excellent. Our waitress was attentive and... More

Great pasta with other choices such as chicken and fish. The portions are large and the side dishes are creative.

Rustico is one of the most deliciously consistent fine dining establishment in Westlake Village. Friendly staff, great service, wide and varied daily specialty entrees and simply the best authentic Italian done right. Excellent wine list and wonderful freshly cooked potato chips at the bar for happy hour! I give Rustico an A+

My husband & I have been dining at this restaurant over the past 10 years & it is amazing. Attentive & courteous service. Great cocktails & wine list. The food is wonderful & Mediterrean Italian style & they have a great roast Duck. Reservations are a must.

Rustico is a bit out of our normal areas, but we went there with about 8 friends. We had not been there in a few years, and those times, it was also with friends. We always remembered Rustico as beeing great on service and food. We were not disappointed. Both my wife and I had the Filet Mignon and it... More
