Had a prvate party here for 14. Everything from the slads, to the espresso cookies with melting centers and vanilla gellato were amazing. Service was excellent as well. We will be back.

My first visit here to actually get in and seated for dinner, very glad I tried again. My server was Anitra, what a great asset she is. She explained the menu and helped me decide what pasta to have. The fresh sourdough bread and hummus was a great beginning. I had the baked rigatoni, it was great. The only small... More

When I go out to eat, I usually go for the oddest combinations on the menu. The other day at Pane Rustica they had a Veggie Burger with hearts of palm, Brie and blueberries and I haven't been able to stop thinking about its amazingness. The food is always fantastic, it can be a little chaotic, but other than that... More

This visit was our first time to Pane Rustica. We went to the bar and ordered two drinks, while waiting for a booth the bar tender was patient and custom made our drinks (changing the liquor that came with the drinks) to our liking. Then when a booth in the bar area became available Katie was our server and was... More

I don't know what took us so long to try this place but boy were we happy we did! From the moment we sat down the service was fantastic. We immediately went to the bakery case to get a fruit tart for Saturday morning breakfast. We enjoyed drinks, appetizers, and our entrees were great. I enjoyed the scollops and my... More

My wife took me here for my birthday recently with about 7 other people, 4 couples and 1 solo. First of all, the waitress was very moody and eye rolly.... Second all of the couples had to order a flatbread pizza to supplement out $30 entrees (and we are not huge appetite people). We were given 4, not jumbo scallops... More

This is my go to restaurant. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, their food is always on the mark. Lunch is salads or sandwiches, real meals in just the right portions. Service is extraordinary. We sit in the bar area as best server there is Autumn. She is excellent. Sit in the left side and pay for the server. Sit on the... More

We were visiting a friend in Tampa and he suggested we try Panè Rustica for dinner. He told us that it is in a strip center and that we would be surprised how good it is. He didn't lie. When you walk through the door, you immediately leave the strip center behind. The restaurant is nicely decorated, has a good... More

Today we had sandwiches from here for lunch and they were very good. I would recommend the turkey sandwich on focaccia bread.
