It is a small, clean and noisy restaurant. The veal parmigiana was good, but the scallop dish had only 3 scallops and they were greasy. I had a penne bolognese which was ok but the side meatball was awful. The service was good until it came to the bill. We were charged for 3 drinks we did not have. The... More

We had our Mother's 90th Birthday at Rustico Italiano Restaurant. The service and ambience was fabulous! Chef Nino was very hospitable and welcoming. The food was absolutley delicious! I would defintely recommend the Stinco D'agnello (lamb shank) which melted off the bone and was a very generous serving. Everyone at our table was very pleasantly surprised, and it definitely exceeded... More

Food is average and it is overpriced. Waiters are pushy. Dirty looks if you do not order expensive wine,

Almost hate to share this with the masses, truly great food. This is the kind of restaurant that everyone wants in their neighborhood, friendly staff, excellent food preparation, reasonably priced wine list, they have it all. It is cozy, around 12-15 tables, but well- spaced and comfortable. The decor is Italian plates accenting a wall of wine, tablecloths, and valet... More

Entering Rustico Italiano is like visiting a small town restaurant in Italy. Nino, the owner, greets you like a friend. The ambiance is comfortable, the menu is always full of interesting and creative dishes, the food is perfectly prepared and the service is attentive but casual. Dinner at Rustico is always a pleasant evening.
