The food is consistently excellent-- interesting but not weird. The service is very good--I sat in the back room so it wasn't very noisy---which it is in the main room.

Pane Rustica continues to serve some of the best food in town. The daily specials are varied and well prepared. I strayed from my usual fish choice, and ordered the steak special- so glad I did! Our server, Alexis, was very attentive, providing us with great service. The constant challenge in this restaurant is the noise- as we were seated next to a large, HAPPY group, we had a hard time having a conversation.

Awesome service, food wasn't the most exceptional but we did arrive quite close to kitchen close and our waiter was still very helpful in cocktails and menu items:)

The pastries and baked goods are made from scratch! They are heavenly! Everything we had here was delicious, from homemade truffle chips and pizza to the filet mignon! Comparably priced for other restaurants in the South Tampa area

Our server was excellent. Made several suggestions re food and wine and was spot on. The food was excellent. We ate at 6pm and the noise level was low. It could get louder later in the evening. Had a great bar area. We will try it the next time in.

Phenomenal evening. Just what we were looking for. The ambiance is very nice. Dimly light, beautiful tables, candlelit dinner. My wife and I both ordered the gnocchi, and it was spectacular.

We had great service and the food was very good. My husband loved his scallops (some of the best he’s had) and my pasta special was very tasty. This bakery/lunch spot by day looked cozy at night. My only issue was some of the tables (including ours) are really outdoor bistro tables and I would have preferred a tablecloth.

We tried this for the first time and were very happy with our food. The service was good, but it's definitely not quiet. It's a decent date place.

Pane Rustica is an incredible hidden GEM in plan sight. The food was wonderful and the service made our 'date night' special. Jared was our waiter who went over and above to make our night special. He was interested in what we wanted to eat and LISTENED to our desires. He also explained how Pane Rustica works and what they focus and specialize in.

We came here for New Year's Eve Dinner- it was fantastic! I have lived in Tampa forever and this is by far some of the best food I have ever had. We had a wonderful time and the service was wonderful. Thank you so much Pane Rustica.

Food is always good and consistent. My only complaint is the crab ravioli was really more of a seafood stew. There were only a few small ravioli on the bottom and very little crab. Two people at our table ordered it and it was good, but not what was described on the menu. Best fresh bread in Tampa!
