“Nice atmosphere, nice people, food ok”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

As in the title, we returned to Rustico and once again found the friendliness of the owner and staff and the atmosphere to be very good. We didn't like the food as much as last time though we certainly could not rate it badly.

“Best Italian Food in Bath and Southwest England”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

We stumbled upon the Rustico Bistro Italiano in Bath while walking on a Friday evening....we were lucky to secure an open table at 1830 for a lovely meal and conversation. The food and staff are all Sicilian, and the staff from Palermo. Great fun!. The food was great value and had fantastic flavor. The chef is Fabio Giovanni, and he takes the time to prepare not only great tasting food, but a wonderful presentation.....You cannot go wrong at this restaurant in Bath. Our dinner was on 21Dec2013.

“Cosy and Authentic”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

I have visited Rustico on a couple of occasions and have had the chicken and the fish. Both were cooked to perfection. Great service and a nice atmosphere.

Slight criticisms I have are in regard to the sides that meals are served with. Meals come with mash potato which unfortunately tastes a bit like Smash. I'd also advise against the house white wine as its a little harsh.

Overall though you can't go far wrong booking a table at Rustico Bistro.

“Very welcoming”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Having got lost we arrived almost half an hour late for our booking on 13th December, but the host was very welcoming in spite of this, and we the. Had a great Italian meal, which was much more than just pasta. Good fish, wild boar sausage, smoked duck, chocolate panna cotta and - the pasta - cannelloni with ricotta and beet root. Worth walking from the town centre.

“Birthday Treat”
Reviewed December 9, 2013

My wife and I booked a meal here for my birthday. The restaurant is quite small but the welcome was large. My wife ordered the calves liver but was disappointed by the abundance of sauce which overwhelmed the taste, my dish of sea bass was very nice. We have been to better restaurants and would probably not be returning.
