While the sercice was attentive, the reviews here are misleading. At these price levels you can have a far better culinary experience in Israel and not be asksd to leave because they are closing (while another table still remained and a $80 bottle of wine remained unfinished).

The meal including wine ans excluding a 20% tip was over $50 per person (4 people). The fillet was tough but cooked properly. The gnocci was tasteless but the fresh fish was nice but in a heavy white sauce they didnt describe.

All in all, look for better options and don't go in your own car on a busy evening as parking is difficult and they don't have valet service.

On both occasions that we ate in Rustico during our stay in Tel Aviv, our entire party enjoyed the eating experience. No matter what pasta dish we had, whether it was with penne, linguini, or gnocchi, the food was well prepared and very tasty. The servers were friendly and very efficient. We could not believe how quickly our entrees appeared on the table. We were glad that we decided to order desert because the three that we tasted were delicious. The restaurant is in the attractive Basel neighborhood on the square which makes for a nice atmosphere when eating in the outside enclosed space.

I enjoyed the service very much. The manager Yonathan did a good job keeping it at good pace and makes sure every table get a good service. He is a great chap, gave me also some good advice on nightlife venues in Tel Aviv.

We were 6 people and had a go on most of the menu. EVERYTHING was amazing.
I had the chestnut gnocchi which was superb.
For desert I recommend the focaccia with notella and mascarpone cheese - amazing

Nice and simple Italian restaurant.
Reasonable prices.
I would recommend on their pizza, tuna pasta and their great Friday's breakfast
