Luigina has been lovingly cooking & teaching in Rustica for 7 years after moving to Bali from Italy. The menu covers home made pastas, wood fired oven pizzas & a great range of local & Imported wines. The restaurant is open for Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner or just a coffee & home-made cakes or biscotti from Luigina's kitchen. Cooking Schools are a fun way to learn how to prepare her dishes at home & you can book for a minimum of 6 people & then sit down to enjoy what you have cooked. Reservations for large groups are appreciated otherwise please come past and eat with our Rustica Family. Home delivery & take-away is also available if pizza by your pool is what you want to do. Rustica is an excellent venue for parties & birthdays where we can cater a menu for your enjoyment.

Dear badguysb,
I'd
like to reply to your poor review on La Rustica restaurant for a couple
of sound reasons. Firstly, I've often eaten there and I have no doubt
that you have confused coldness with simplicity. The owners have tried
to create the typical Italian eating place atmosphere in Bali and
considering that I'm Italian (and this is also the second reason) I can
definitely say that an eating place is different to a restaurant
because it has the simple, family feeling while serving good food.
Excellent and yet simple because it seems as if it were mother's
homemade.
I believe you went there with a negative inclination of the
mind. Try going back with this interpretation and I'm sure you'll see
things in a different light. I often go to Bali and I always go back to
"mamma Luigina" as we all call her. As I've already said the food is
great. There's the best pizza in Bali and you always find comfort and a
warm welcome in a pleasant, informal atmosphere so that you can also
relax while enjoying the food!
As for entertainment: if you were
looking for a tarantella and a mandolin you must be informed that they
have been out of fashion for at least 50 years!

We (three families) visited recently and spent a wonderful five hours there. The children (5 to 8 years old) made pasta, sauce, meatballs, and their own pizza, including the dough. Mamma gave clear directions and the kids appreciated the guidelines and the responsibility they had. We all sat down afterwards in a great setting and had a true family meal with plenty of wonderful wine! It was an authentic Italian break from the pool and beach.

Great for a break from Balinese food for a night and the kids loved the pizza and the team were very family friendly. Good coffee although a little high for Bali and cakes a little dry..but pasta.. Bellissimo!
