  • "A late night snack of pizza and Ceasar hit the spot. The salad was perfect and the Margarita Pizza simple with a crunchy crust, just the way I like it!"

  • "We spent $79 for the two of us and the food was just ok. I am fine with spending money on dinner but it has to be worth it."

  • "Always such an inviting atmosphere, great people, great service and great food. Love the bruchetta, the best anywhere! They are always willing to accommodate special requests and will make you what you want if they have it on hand. My favorite Italian restaurant!!"

  • "Tried something new this time...the Linguine Shrimp Pesto...loved it!! So tasty. My husband also tried something new, the baked ziti with eggplant, he ate almost all of it which means he loved it. Can't wait to heat it up for leftovers today!!"

  • "A nice, upscale restaurant in Montrose. Reminds me of the many good Italian restaurant gems in Manhattan. Wines are reasonably priced and food was delicious."

  • "I had a really nice meal here. When the entree had an unexpected ingredient, they remade it for me at my request quite graciously. Loved the ambience, good food & wine."

  • "I have been going to Cucina Rustica since it first opened. Dining with a friend, we thought we'd give it a try. We were delighted by the quality of the food and the ambiance (which has improved dramatically since those early days). Recently, I had long-lost relatives in town and I knew we wanted to enjoy great food in an atmosphere where we could talk and be heard. This restaurant at lunchtime is the perfect place. My guests loved their meal, the surroundings, and the dessert! Their regular menu, always exquisitely prepared, is enhanced by their excellent daily specials. Their wait staff has greatly improved over the years, which I am really thrilled to see."

  • "I frequent Cucina Rustica often and I am always amazed to see that the food is always well-prepared, the staff is attentive, but not overly so. There ;is a lovely wine list. It is wonderful to see the return customers---a sign that this place is quite a find."

  • "Consistently good. You cant go wrong with this place."

  • "Always love Italian cuisine and this place will never disappoint you. Went there with 3 of my girlfriends. The waiters never got who ordered what straight when they delivered the dishes. One of the waiters offended my friend when he tried to remove the plate when she finished eating but the others still working on theirs. Other than that, the experience was good! I will definitely go back."

  • "Absolutely excellent!! This place is consistently great! I recommend that you try something off their special menu, too. The salad mista is my favorite starter. Really fresh. I had a pasta with artichoke hearts and marinara and my husband had ravioli stuffed with mushroom in a creamy sauce that was too die for (that was on the special list). I would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "Went on a Saturday night at 8:30 pm. Restaurant had other patrons but was quiet. Service was attentive and warm. Food was good. I ordered gnocchi which were thankfully light and well made; not like the leaden dumplings I have been offered at some establishments. My brother ordered lasagna which he enjoyed. We both agreed it was not haute cuisine but well executed comfort food. If that is what you are in the mood for this is a good place to go."
