We regularly go to Rustico. The choice is great and the food is high quality. I had a Sunday lunch on our last visit. 2 courses for 7.99 and the roast beef was tender and delicious.

I have been here three times since living in heaton. It is a lovely restaurant with a relaxed and cosy atmosphere. There are so many different options and something for everyone. All the food and drinks are very reasonably priced. Three of us ate there and combined we had 3 main courses, 4 soft drinks and 1 alcoholic drink and our bill was £37. We found this extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity of food they offer. The only reason it is a 4 star review and not 5 is that the service can be a little slow if the restaurant is a little busy. However the staff do seem to work very hard and are all very friendly.

I visited Rustico late afternoon on a Sunday as part of a group of 9 (both adults and children) and had a wonderful and relaxed meal. The restaurant is bright and cheery and the staff were friendly and attentive and made our party very welcome. The menu has a mixture of both Italian and Albanian dishes on offer and the majority of our group opted to try for the first time the Albanian fare for their main courses. We were not disappointed in our first experience of this cuisine and thoroughly enjoyed the stuffed chicken breasts, king prawn skewers and baked aubergine stew. The portions were substantial and very tasty. The children opted for pizzas and these were very large and well made. The good food and laid back atmosphere made it a most enjoyable experience and I would have absolutely no hesitation in going back again some time soon.
Well done to the staff and thanks for a great time.
