“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

We had lunch at Rustico on a Sunday while touring the area. This restaurant was just delightful. Food was inexpensive compared to Annapolis and unexpectedly good. We started with the antipasto platter - a large portion and perfect for 2 people. My husband had a chicken panini sandwich and I had regular spagetti with marinara- great sauce - very fresh and light, Hot bread - yum. Excluding wine, it all cost about $30 plus tip. Of course we did have wine - a good cab for $9/glass. Our server was very nice. Just us and two other couples eating there at the time. The only thing missing was a water view but the view out the front window to the street was quaint. Cozy atmosphere. The locals must love this place!

“Off Night?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

Beautiful restaurant; cozy atmosphere. Even though the prices were on the higher side was willing to overlook due to high reviews on multiple rating sites. Found the food to be bland and ordinary. The chicken piccata had no flavour and Cesar salad for $6 had about 10 pieces of torn lettuce which b a rely filled the small plate. The wait staff was friendly and attentive. Unfortunately this restaurant was a real disappointment.

“Great Happy Hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

So, Stevensville is a really tiny historic town on the Eastern Shore of the Chesapeake, across the Bay Bridge from Annapolis. You would never think there would be such a nice restaurant bar available in this location..
We like to get a glass of wine and snack after work so a client actually suggested Rustico. We were not disappointed with the food or atmosphere. I hands down suggest the Antipasto platter and the Fried Green Tomatoes, along with the flat bread pizza appetizers...Wow...Really delicious...in fact amazing. As a bonus, all appetizers are half price for happy hour. Rustico has a nice wine selection to compliment the food. Once draw back though...the male bartender seemed overworked and kind of annoyed having to leave his haven behind the bar to attend to the other guests in the bar. Service ended up being quite slow although, we didn't mind so much since we really enjoy the atmosphere. Don't hesitate to try Rustico in Stevensville MD. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

“Love it!!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Food is wonderful and so is the service. Would highly recommend it to everyone. Love the outside cafe/terrace even though haven't been able to eat out there weather hasn't been the best but always looks inviting. The wine bar is great place to chat with friends while waiting for table. Love Love this place.

“Wow - what a find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Everything at Rustico is cooked to order. The food is awesome and terrifically fresh. The staff is friendly and really helpful. Service was great. They had nice, live music in the bar. We had a great time & would go back to Kent Island, just to have a meal at Rustico!
