My local go to place for great Italian food, cozy atmosphere (I especially like the bar area), and warm hospitality. Jose (who runs the front of house) is a real pro and Miguel (owner/chef) takes incredible pride in his work. Highly recommend.

Drawn in by a Groupon, this is a place we will come back to. Good service, generous drinks, very tasty food. Both of us went with pasta as our main. Portions are good and satisfying. Tiramisu is to die for. Reservations are recommended.

Another wonderful meal at Rustico. One of our favorites in Westport. Excellent service by Jose. The fish was superb and the risotto special was terrific. Good dinner!

I lived in Westport for about 3 years & this was my favorite in the area. The food & especially the service were excellent. The guy that liked the homemade grappa! My best to y'all - a Southerner in a Connecticut court

After reading another 2 reviews which preceded mine, it has to be either a coincidence or purposefully ripping diners off. Our bar bill was charged $40 when the bill should have been $25 and, we were overcharged $2 for the salad! The waiter, when we...More
