Our wood-burning oven produces the finest thin-crust pizza around, and now with six of our own beers on tap, we have something for every beer lover!
Very nice meal with great service. We were seated next to the kitchen area so it was a bit loud but not to the point we couldn't talk. It was my wife's secon visit of the week. Will definitely return.
Yes and no. We found the music way too loud. We could not talk together at all.
Great first time dining at Rustico!
High energy, fast paced, good music, fabulous service and the food was fantastic!
We had a very enjoyable evening with friends before strolling downtown taking in the sights snd sounds of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival.
Very accommodating . I had a seating request and the honoured it despite a Big crowd
Service was excellent and the food great. I was looking for pizza baked on site, and it was awesome!
Delicious pizza and fast and friendly service!
Loved everything about the restaurant. Our waitress was fantastic and engaging. We both had a pizza which were absolutely delicious. We were out on the patio which is on the corner of a major intersection. Other than the loud vehicles and motorcycles, it was great.
Best pizza on the planet! Seriously.
Good service, atmosphere, food (burger, dry,expensive for what it was), so-so.
Excellent service. DELICIOUS FOOD. We went out for a special anniversary dinner and they were extremely accommodating
My husband and I sat outside for our meals on a quiet, warm Saturday night July 20, 2019. The ambience was good - music piped in at a reasonable volume and little traffic noise that night. I believe there were only six other people outside at that time so it was pleasantly quiet.
Our servers were excellent. Timing was perfect for drinks, dinner, dessert and bill paying. Both were professional...knowledgeable with just the right degree of friendliness.
For drinks I ordered what was called a Wayne Gretzky Old fashioned. It is made with maple syrup but I opted to have mine made without. My server brought me maraschino cherries when I commented that an old fashioned usually includes a cherry. Nice of him as the version offered there is probably not made that way. At any rate, the drink was just right. My husband ordered the craft beer and I had a glass of wine. All good.
My husband ordered the Pappadella Bolognese pasta dish (not sure about the spelling) which he said was excellent.
I ordered the Mediterranean Pizza which arrived hot with lots of toppings. It was good but I've gotten to prefer wood fired pizza and am just slightly disappointed when I can't get that. This is why I gave a four star rating for the food. Nothing really wrong with it, just too much like one from a takeout pizza parlour.
We shared a delicious brownie dessert which came warmed with whipped cream and sliced strawberries. Our server commented that it was extra large because it was the last bit in a pan but I think it must have been equivalent to two desserts - very generous on their part.
My husband had an espresso which he seemed to enjoy.
We will very likely be back.
Great service and food
I had read online that this restaurant had good vegan options, unfortunately that was not the case. The waitress was not able to tell us what foods could be made vegan so we ended up with an overpriced pasta and cheese-less nachos. Usually when you order nachos or pizza without cheese they add extra veggies to make up for it, not here. There were about 10 pieces of jalapeños and peppers on about 50 chips. Very disappointed.
This is my new go-to restaurant. Whenever I have friends visit from out of town I take them to Rustico. They like the beer selection and food both. You will find me there at least once every two weeks!
We had a negative experience early on at Rustico but decided to try again and I have to say it was fantastic. The filet mignon steak was exceptional as was the veggie burger...best I have tasted yet. We will definitely return. Fun atmosphere and great service!!
A huge number of staff standing around seemingly with nothing to do. Service was poor. Asked for another beer and it didn’t come. Food was awful. The salad was way over dressed and the pizza soggy. The pizza toppings had little flavour and not enough to over power the burned flavour of the dough.
RustiCo is my 'Go To' place whenever I am in Fredericton.
The food is always top notch, the service is always fantastic, the ambiance is always warm and inviting.
Doesn't get much better than that!
Always a pleasure to visit and also to plan my team suppers here.
See you when I'm back in town! Keep sharing that beautiful energy and fantastic food with the world!
Our food was delicious! We thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The wings were crispier a previous time we had them, but still tasty.
Excellent service, great atmosphere, wonderful food, and an outstanding server. The server was so kind and friendly. The restaurant became a bit busy as we were finishing up and the waitress covered our appetizer because of the unexpected wait in getting our bills (which we didn't even notice, to be honest). The wood-fired pizza was so tasty and the American Pale Ale brewed in-house was delicious. I will be returning! :)
The food and service was excellent. Lots of choice on the menu.
The only drawback was that there is not a lot of parking space.
I would recommend it but with a warning that it tends to be noisy. Though it wasn’t packed on a Tuesday evening there was a large table of patrons where there was a great deal a loud conversation and laughter. They seemed to be having a good time but it was difficult to hear the conversation at our own table. We ordered pizzas but they were a bit over done. We had wood fired pizza before at other places and in comparison, the pizzas were just okay. The hostess who greeted us was very pleasant and our waitress was friendly so staff are a good.
Really good food, really good service! Seemed like the server really enjoyed working there and was very talkative and positive!
We love to go spend an evening at Rustico! Always lots happening and the attention to patrons is amazing! Manager and staff are always “quietly” passing by to see if you need anything. Truly fortunate to have this establishment in Fredericton. And the food... OMG... get your tastebuds ready for a flavour explosion. Tried the cauliflower pakora tonight and could not imagine that cauliflower could taste this amazing!
I've been 3 times within a week I loved it so much! It's my new favourite place to eat in Fredericton.
Food was overall very good, however we were disappointed in the nachos as they were quite overdone (several chips were actually black) and there was not a lot of cheese on them. Service was very good as well. This was our second visit and will likely be back!
Very enjoyable meal. The craft brew was excellent as well.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner at rustico Saturday night. Food was great and our server made terrific suggestions from the menu.
We were a party of 6 and a toddler. We were first at a high table, but then moved to a lower table to accommodate the toddler in a booster seat. Our wait staff were all outstanding! I was a little disappointed in the apps, the nachos and hushpuppies, but my works pizza was delish! The crust (bottom) was a little soggy and a little too thin, but the toppings were so yummy..I think the pork bellies made it...just slight hint of sweet..oh goodness! That alone will bring me back. My son had the arctic char and loved it, and hubby had a burger and said it was also delish and he is the pickiest! Everyone else had pizza and enjoyed. Lots to try on the menu, I did forget to use my gift card, so I will def be back.
Very much enjoyed my dinner last Saturday. I had the lamb shank and it was excellent, moist and tender with lovely spicy sauce. The service was quick and attentive. It was a bit noisy but not so much that we did not enjoy our meal. Great visit!
Such a fun and relaxing atmosphere. Staff are very efficient and friendly. Just an overall happy, feel-good kind of place that just happens to have amazing food and drinks!
I will be back. The wood fired pizza was beyond amazing and the price was excellent as well. Service was good but not great, however, I went on a very busy night during the Beer Festival so that's probably why. I will he back very soon.
Great food, great service, warm and friendly. Great place to meet with friends
Really great food and drinks. Prices are a little high. Radlers use to be 5 during happy hour but now changed to not include them
Love the pizza! Service was great. Looking forward to going again.
Long wait for food - took apps about an hour to arrive- and the mains about 45 minutes after the apps. Food was good - friendly and effiecnt servers.
Pizza was horrible. Overcooked hard and no artichokes....
We found the food and service excellent. And very reasonably priced. We will be back for sure
It was good. However a little tooo thin of crust . a little too floury on thw bottom and a bit burnt. I feel like if the dough was just a tiny bit thicker it would have made it 10x better.
Pizza was delicious though, minus that part. Definatley would like to try their mussles next time! And their home made beer was actually pretty decent
Great atmosphere, food and service. A "must go" if in Fredericton.
