When we want a fine meal with a little personality, Rustica is the place to go. We love sitting near the open kitchen and watching them do their magic. Much of the food is local - and the offerings change, so go frequently!

I feel like I'm on vacation in another city when I eat there. Great food!!
Just don't want to sit right by the kitchen, it gets awfully hot sometimes.

Mussels served in a very salty broth at our most recent visit, not the norm for this place. Would like to have consistency. Service was friendly and efficient but waiter did not ask why we did not finish our dish.

My husband took me to celebrate my 40th birthday. It was a long, narrow room, with an open kitchen. Reminded me of a small European cafe. It was too busy and packed to relax and enjoy. Our waiter was very informative, and quick to serve. He took his role a bit too seriously, however. It felt stiff.
