This is the best place in all of NEPA! The food is so delicious! A favorite appetizer of ours is the Italian spring rolls. I love their pasta and pizza, and their tiramisu is a nice way to finish off the meal. It is a cozy yet classy place and we just love it! You won't regret stopping in!

The best Italian food I've had since my vacation in Italy. In my opinion veal marsala is meant to be served with mashed potatoes and that's just how they serve it. The bread is fantastic and could make a meal by itself. The rear dining room surrounds the TV studio where they do their twice weekly show. If I'm ever... More

Not only can you get coupons for Rustic Kitchen but you can eat very well and reasonably here. Be prepared to be hungry because you receive very nice portions of whatever you order. The hamburgers are HUGE and very yummy. The servers are really nice They make you feel welcome and I personally LOVE the decor.

We attended the dinner show they offer. The show is put on by a MasterChef. they prepare a special meal and explain what they're preparing and how. While serving the appetizers and soup and salad and wine.... Very entertaining and very good.

Went to Rustic Kitchen and had a great time. It was all you can eat pasta night. This is always n a Wednesday. Make sure you make reservations, otherwise, you will have to wait over an hour for a table. The service and the food were both terrific .

On Friday and Saturday nights they offer a dinner that is cooked right in front of you in a separate kitchen with chef . 4 course meal unlimited wine $75 per person and worth every penny. Must make reservations usually sells out. Menu changes monthly.
