We went there on a friend's recommendation, and it was a very good option in Oack Creek.

We ate outside on the patio. The service was attentive, but casual enough. The food was very good. The pasta portion was huge, and their seafood pasta in a red spicy sauce was delicious.

Great overall.

After a long day we called in an order to Cucina Rustica for chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and bruschetta. They told us it would only take about 15 minutes and they were just about spot on with that. We sat at the bar a little while waiting on our order and everyone was very friendly, asked if we wanted a glass of wine or drink while we waited. Once we got our food we headed back to the hotel. The food may seem expensive but the size of the meal is large, so you are getting your money's worth. The food does really taste like homemade Italian, everything tasted fresh, and was cooked perfectly. Next time we will eat in the restaurant, very pleasant on the inside!

The service is top-notch, with very friendly and smiling waiters who'd also advice you regarding your food choices. I am particularly sensitive to eating low-fat, healthy, nutritious and protein-filled fare, and they were able to satisfy my requirements. Very nice ambiance, too: each room is decorated in a very special way and the terrace is great (heated in the evening by the heating lamps, if needed).

Excellent but pricey.
Great bar and service. Food and menu is Italian and quite varied.
Reservations a must. Usually full of well off patrons.

The patio was so beautiful as the sun was setting and the fires started up - perfect atmosphere not to mention the guy playing music & singing - fabulous!! And the food and wine was sooooo good, I couldn't even order dessert I was so full!
