Diner Reviews
  • "This is one of our favorite places for weekday nights out. The chef's specials are always excellent and you can't miss ordering off the regular menu."
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "This is one of the great restaurants. The food is delectable. The quality, taste and preparation as good as any restaurant in Manhattan or LA or any major European Capital. What more to say. On this recent occasion we shared a Caesar Salad and Asparagus soup to start, I had veal parmigiana [a major veal chop, split and pounded - size of a large plate] along with the most delicious roast potatoes ever and spinach with garlic, and wife had crisp chicken on a bone with a natural sauce that included artichokes, olives and tomato. Every single item was delicious. House Cab is excellent and generous pour."

  • "This is one of our favorite neighborhood places. The food is consistently well prepared and provides enough variety both on the menu as well with well thought out nightly specials so frequent visits are something to look forward to. Portions are generous so lunch the next day is something we plan on. Service is good but can be rushed as this is a popular place and for good reason. Reservations on Friday and Saturday are advised."

  • "Our server, Carla, was first rate. Friendly, extremely knowledgeable, and accommodating. We had a table of six and they found a table where we could converse and have fun. The owner visited our table, just like in a good restaurant in Italy. The food is creative, portions quite satisfying, and the flavor profiles terrific. Some of the best cioppino I have ever had outside of Italy."

  • "We were visiting the area and I found this restaurant. Tucked away in a quiet strip mall, it was wonderful. Food was absolutely delicious. Menu was inventive with many specials. Wine list very good. Service( Tony) was professional and pleasant."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Was visiting my folks for a week and decided to come here for a family birthday dinner after reading many positive reviews. It did not disappoint! The food was outstanding, atmosphere cozy yet sophisticated, service a throw-back to the days of "real" waiters (loved the Italian style and flare) and the wine we ordered was amazingly good, although we chose a less pricey bottle. Our party even unexpectedly grew and they accommodated us like pros, never making us feel like a burden. The surprise tiramisu was a nice treat and was devoured instantly. Will make this a regular stop when I return to visit my family in the future. Bravo!"

  • "Attentive service, wonderful food, lovely ambiance, attention to detail. Who could ask for more from a restaurant. We took some friends out for dinner who live in Newport Beach and they raved about Rustico, saying they couldn't find a restaurant like this where they live. We have eaten at Rustico on numerous occasions and find the food to be consistently good, the service to be excellent, the wine (or martinis) excellent."

    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This is a very busy place. The food is excellent--the specials are numerous and outstanding. The portions are very big--we split a salad, and it was still more than we could finish. This is not a good place if quiet conversation is your wish."
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "This was our first time and it's a winner. The menu and special choices are extensive. What we chose was excellent. The prices for a place at this level are reasonable, even moderate. Very attractive decor."

  • "We celebrated my Mom's birthday here. We ate family style meaning everybody tasted each other's dish and they were all wonderful. Although the location and ambience were not the best, the wonderful food made up for all what was lacking in ambience / decor. Would definitely recommend this place."

  • "This is true neighborhood gem!! Don't let strip mall location fool you. Consistently good food with great specials nightly - wide variety of choices from pizza to prime steak and everything in between. My husband has severe food allergies & he never has issues at Rustico. Our waiter, David, always checks with chef & kitchen staff to ensure food meets his requirements. And always offer alternatives or creative solutions. Just a great spot!!"

  • "Went to rustico for a lunch with a group and was told they are terrific for dinner so we made a reservation for Saturday night, before a sow at TO Theater. It was delightful. I had not had duck in YEARS, and this was to perfection! A delicious cherry sauce on th side, for dipping, the duck was crispy and not at all fatty. Served with Bok Choy and also, perhaps it was sweet potato puree. My partner had the huge meatball and spaghetti and she ate the WHOLE THING, it was so delicious. Excellent wine selection by the glass too. Service was excellent and the place was mobbed! I had asked for a quiet table and we were seated near the end of the small room, which really helped."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "A perfect neighborhood spot for soulful well prepared Italian American favorites with creative touches and well thought out daily specials. This is a place we have been going to for years and we are never disappointed. They will happily do take out as well. If you live in (or are visiting) the Thousand Oaks Westlake Village Agoura area and have not been here....time to make a reservation ( it was jammed at 6:30 pm on Saturday night, 2/1/14) and enjoy an excellent meal & accompanying service!!"

  • "I usually enjoy dinner at Rustico, thought I'd try lunch with a friend. Extremely delicious scampi appetizer, a perfect lunch at a very fair price. I'll definitely be back for lunch. Yummy, A note, I am severely hearing impaired, and would warn anyone with a hearing impairment to avoid the main dining room, as the kitchen is part of the main dining room, and the exhaust fans a very, very noisy. For me the only solution, is any other room, preferably the indoor patio. Other than that, incredible food and service."

  • "Best restaurant in the Conejo Valley!!!! Neighborhood gem--I would rate the Chef, Maurizo, one of the top chef's in all of Los Angeles."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "The waiter, although courteous, seemed unsure of himself. The restaurant ran out of three dishes that members of our party ordered and the poor waiter had to keep returning to the table to inform us each time. Poor management and we would not return."

  • "This is a family run business by an authentically Italian family. Monica is usually there at the bar and knows all of her customers by name, in fact, she calls them if they forget something. She also knows how to please her special needs Glutard customers like me. My favorite dish is the ciopinno, which I never liked until I tried it at Rustico. Now, I am hooked! Their fish and chicken is cooked to perfection and is amazingly delicious!!! I also love their minestrone soup!"

  • "Tried first lamb braised shank that was so overpowered with salt that I have sent back and asked for beef braised short ribs. Again too salty and too fatty and heavy; portion small as well and overpriced for what you get. Have been many times in the past but this last dinner was really bad. Not sure if will go there again. 4 medium sized scallops with a little overspiced pasta - $32?!"
    Dined on 11/25/2013

  • "I've been here a few times. My husband knows the manager there. It is one of our favorite places to go. We actually scheduled our rehearsal dinner there earlier this year. It was absolutely perfect. Roberto worked with us on the menu to design one specifically to our needs. This last time we went to celebrate my dad's 60th. As always, just a superb experience. The specials are always changing an always superb. Big fan of this place!"
