Met up with a friend from high school from a long long time ago. She is from MD and I from DE now. We picked this restaurant out of 3 possibilities and I must say we hit the jackpot. Because we don't see each other often, we usually take up our table for a longer period of time. No problem. The staff was friendly and allowed us to talk (and talk) and then order. Everything was excellent.
We shared the baked-brie-en-croute appetizer and agreed it was yummy. We then had the mozzerella-eggplant-napolean and lastly the fettuccine-di-cremona-lunch. Refills of our iced tea came without having to ask. We both agreed that we will have to go back there soon. So many dishes to try.

Good quality food, always a nice time. Menu can get tedious since it never changes but good for an occasional meal.

We enjoyed the evening and the great service we received from Jess. She was attentive and has a great attitude and a keen sense of humor. I was not overwhelmed by the cream of crab soup, very different than what we were expecting. Tastes Ok but not a great as the rest of the food and appetizers. Two people ordered the Pene pasta with vodka sauce, which was outstanding. Large portions are the rule here. This includes the appetizers. My pasta with anchovies, black olives and shrimp was wonderful. Great mix of flavors to complement the fresh bread that came strait out of the oven. The grouper with artichoke hearts was also a big hit. We have been here three times and each time the food has been outstanding.

Living on Kent Island, we always try to patronize our local restaurants. Rustico is a wonderful find, and one of our favorite restaurants in quaint Stevensville. We enjoy their happy hour with half price wine and the delicious varieties of flat bread pizza along with other tasty offerings. Everyone is friendly and the waitstaff is more than accommodating. Dinner at Rustico's is a must, and its separate dining room is charming. We have recommended Rustico to friends who live on the Western Shore of Maryland, and they still continue to make the trip across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge to enjoy a fabulous repast. Delicious, Itallian, homemade food that will definitely make you want to put this restaurant on your list.

Rustico is one of our favorites on Kent Island. Cozy and intimate with friendly staff. The menu is very tasty. The 1/2 price wine bottle night is great. Solway wind up taking home some of our oversized delicious entree. Definitely a must stop place on the Eastern Shore.
