“Amazing traditional Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

We visited the restaurant on a trip to Bath recently and are looking forward to going back already! We got such a warm welcome from the minute we walked in, the service and staff were second to none. The restaurant was soon full and a clear favourite with people who were frequent visitors, this made for a lovely atmosphere. The food was fantastic and I have never had a better Italian meal nor has my husband. A must when having dinner in Bath!

“Wonderful restaurant!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

I booked Rustico Bistro for an 'upmarket' hen do in Bath for a group of 12 of us. I contacted Franco in advance and he got back to me promptly and answered all of my questions and organised our booking. When we arrived we were worried that we might be a bit rowdy/ loud for such a nice restaurant! But we were welcomed and the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly. Our food was wonderful - I honestly don't remember having a better Italian meal for some time! We just want to say a huge thank you to Franco and the team for welcoming us and feeding us so well - it really added something special to the weekend.

“Too rich and creamy”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

We came here based on other reviews but neither of us were bowled over. It is a typical independent Italian erestaurant with very heavy and rich food. Our food was tasty - but so are most dishes laden in cream. In its favour, I must say that the service was exemplary a nd it does have a good atmosphere.

“Small local restaurant with good food”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We were staying at Brock's Guest House so this restaurant was right around the corner. It is a small, cozy place with good food and service. We'd recommend it especially if you are staying nearby.
