“Very very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

I've recently moved back into this neighbourhood of Bath. And I have re-discovered this lovely little restaurant.

It's a perfect family-run Italian restaurant - with very reasonable food and wine-by-the-glass prices relative to the the quality. The linguine with clams on my recent visit was just great.

“Warm welcome and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We recently visited as a family of 4 (with 2 teenagers). There was a good selection of interesting dishes on the menu, plus a few specials - all cooked in the kitchen right next to us. The food arrived at the table within a few seconds of being cooked.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Ie liked the wild boar starter and the swordfish special in particular.

“Delicious food served with warm and professional service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

This is a delightful restaurant serving delicious food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Each course was excellent, especially the Fillet of beef all four of us chose for our main course - the best we had tasted anywhere. We would recommend this restaurant to everyone who loves good food.

“Fantastic Italian Food and Lovely Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

An absolutely lovely rustic Italian restaurant, with beautiful Italian food and an incredibly friendly manager/owner.
The food is all incredibly fresh and flavoursome, with all of the basics like Pomodoro done very well and inventive dishes such as the Wild Boar starter and the Lamb Ragu both excellent.
The food is fantastic from snack through to starters and on through to mains and desserts. The coffee was also brilliant.
The restaurant has a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with rustic decor and the staff are both very professional and very friendly. The food is served very quickly.
A fantastic restaurant, with some of the best Italian food anywhere in the UK, and equal to brilliant restaurants in Italy. All of this and the price was very reasonable, a restaurant of this quality in London would be double the cost. A great place for couples or families and friends.

“New chef, new excitement”

My first visit since the arrival of a new chef to Rustico Bistro. The food was exceptional, perfectly prepared and with original twists. This is a bistro with much more. Go soon and try!
