Enjoyed our meal, atmosphere was nice, service was good. Decent value. Nice that they are open on Monday when many of the other nicer restaurants are closed.

“Service was top notch !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2013 via mobile

The service at the Rustica was amazing! I had made reservation through open table and requested quiet table and they delivered! Our table was ready when we arrived and our server was great! My husbands lasagna he said was amazing! My dish however I found to be from frozen pasta .. I was very suprised however I felt it tasted frozen not freshly made. The mozzarella sticks were also not freshly made like our previous trip had found. We will still continue to enjoy the reatuarant however I would recommend only ordering the fresh pasta dishes.

“Really enjoyed dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

Following the advice of a hotel desk clerk and checking on Trip Advisor for reviews, we visited this restaurant for dinner. We found parking quite easy and the exterior décor rustic and pleasant to the eye.

The interior, too, was easy going and our waitress quite pleasant and well trained. My wife had the Linguini with Red Clam Sauce ($16.29) while I had the Veal Frances ($17.79). Both were excellent with plenty of clams in the linguini and veal that was tasty and not chewy or stringy. We also enjoyed soup with our meals. The prices are in line with what we are accustomed to.

Our waitress made a recommendation for a breakfast restaurant for the next morning which was an excellent choice. She also worked closely with my wife who suffers a food allergy to provide a safe meal. All-in-all a very pleasant experience and if in the neighborhood, we would visit again.

“Wonderful place to have a nice dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Came here because of other positive tripadvisor reviews. Must have reservations!! Wanted the eggplant special, but they were all out so I ordered the eggplant parm. Very big portion, cooked perfect. Sauce was very tasty. Served with nice field green salad- homemade dressings were amazing. Rolls and garlic bread were best we have ever had! Only complaint is that waitress was very slow to bring salad and rolls, other than that she was very sweet! And all other meals were very good. No complaints on kids meals either:)

“Stick with Italian in an Italian restaurant”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

We shared the special, a trout dish and a pasta primavera. The pasta was good, but the fish was nothing special and overpriced! The bread was good and the salad was okay.
