Ruscello – Nordstrom Perimeter Mall
Ruscello is located on the 3rd floor of upscale super-regional Perimeter Mall in Atlanta, featuring our interpretation of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine and the Nordstrom standard of customer service and food quality. Our menu is complimented by a full bar and wide selection of intriguing wines from across the globe.
Our Cilantro Lime Chicken Salad features crisp romaine and organic baby greens tossed with roma tomatoes, roasted corn, pumpkin seeds, jack cheese and our vibrant cilantro lime vinaigrette, made fresh daily.
Had a great time.
Valentines Day. The new experience was Awesome!!!!
First time here and will definitely return!
I had heard that there was a restaurant in Nordstrom but had never been.
I met my daughter for a quick bite after work and we both enjoyed it immensely!
Food was great and there were wine & cocktail specials for Happy Hour!
Nice ambiance, great food and our waitress was awesome. I would highly recommend the tomato bisque soup and Margherita pizza . Not a large menu but they perfect the food Selection. Will definitely be back!
The service was good. Our waitress took good care of us. My husband's food was good. My pasta with chicken and artichokes was bland, had little flavor and was sitting in warm milk since this was not sauce. I asked for salt and parmesan cheese to fix it. The waitress offered to bring me something else instead but I decided against this since my husband would be done with his meal by the time I started.
Everything was very nice and the food was good. Just wondering why you ask if it’s a special occasion because nobody ever mentioned it.
Great service in a really comfy booth
We went for a birthday celebration. The food selections were very good and the food was excellent. Our waitress was very pleasant and helped make it an enjoyable night. I would certainly recommend the restaurant. It was not loud at all, so it was easy for us to have conversations with each other.
Justin, Kim, and Shay were stellar in their teamwork as usual! The food was delicious and we had the perfect spot to talk about our 2020 goals!
I love, love this restaurant. The food is exceptionally good and flavorful. I love the ambience and outstanding customer service. Keep up the good work.
This restaurant is a gem. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. The white chocolate bread pudding desert is probably the best desert I have ever had. The tomato basil soup is great also. My salmon, cauliflower and polenta is an entree to be ordered! I’ve been there many times and it never disappoints.
It a big hit not a miss food is good and a moderate price
This is a great place for a business lunch. Not noisy and good food.
We were a large table of 16 there for a couples evening out and relaxed dinner!
Everything and anything that could go wrong did that evening!
- The AC was turned off and we were seated at a Sunset facing side with the full sun in our face.... and the whole restaurant was empty. Oh well, that should've been a sign that something is amiss but we were a large party and couldn't just get up and leave!
- Service was OK... food really so-so.
As the host of this group, I scrambled to get us out of there by 9:30PM to get to another restaurant at 10PM - YES, it closes at 9:30PM on Saturday evening. The credit card wouldn't function and delayed us in a hot boiling restaurant until 10PM.
I used to visit this place for lunch a while back and it was a great experience... but something has gone horribly wrong!
The Manager did leave me a message the next day to make nice.... but they almost ruined an evening for us and the parents in the group had a date night.
I didn't bother returning his call - We will not be returning to dine.
Pleasant, relaxing lunch. Able to carry on a conversation without much noise.
Excellent and very personal
We had a table of 8 and received excellent service.
Everyone really enjoyed their meals
I always order the arugula, corn, grilled shrimp salad which is delicious. I did need extra salad dressing because it seemed to be missing. And those croutons - just say "yes!" Kimberly was our server and she was perfect.
Excellent food and good service as always.
First time trying any Ruscello and everything was amazing. She She was a pleasure and a sweetheart! Food was incredible!
Service was good but food has gone DOWNHILL. Used to be our favorite place - one that we all agreed on. No need to return. Wasn’t worth the money.
We had a lovely Mother’s Day lunch. Our server She She took excellent care of us.
The food here has always been delicious. I did notice a few changes to the salads on a recent visit - not as good as it had been but they added a nice roll to the side. It is a consistent winner in the Perimeter area.
Loved the soup, salmon & wine selections. Our server was excellent! I believe her name was Arial. We will be back often!
I love Ruscello, normally. It has been my go to lunch spot for years. Lately, they don’t seem to have it together. This is the second time in a row that something was not right with our experience. This time we each ordered a salad and 50 minutes later, we did not have our food. Our server, Kim, was absolutely fabulous. She checked on it and said they did not notice her ticket. That’s crazy! Kim took great care of us. My roasted vegetable salad was missing some of the ingredients but otherwise delicious..
Great service, very good food,but the server offered two cocktails as samples, then they turned up on our bill. That really spoiled the whole evening.
Delicious meal...exceptional service
Took my mom to lunch for Valentines Day. She loved it!
I ordered the salad with a chicken breast on it. The chicken was so dry and tough I could not cut it well or chew it. Blue cheese dressing is not on the menu. Romaine lettuce was very good and crisp.
Noise level was extremely high. We had to lean over the table to hear each other talk.
Although the server was attentive, her attitude was abrupt and not friendly.
I have never written a negative review like this one. I am sorry I had to do it, but I am sure the Ruscello management would like to know this opinion.
I was disappointed to learn that the classic Nordstrom cafe had been replaced by Ruscello, but overall I think it was just as good, if not better! Came for a Friday long lunch and had great service and everything we ate was delicious and fresh. Would highly recommend if you're at the mall!
She She was our waitress. Very attentive and pleasant.
Excellent food and service right inside Nordstrom on the 3rd floor - love this place.
I selected Ruscello for our department Holiday Luncheon. Oftentimes, it is quite difficult to find a restaurant that meet the needs of everyone. However, that was not the case with Ruscello! This being the first time anyone in the group dined in the restaurant, I am pleased to say, the food was delicious, the service was excellent, and everyone had a fabulous time.

It is a very nice place and the food was good. The service started strong but by the end of our meal, we had to find our waiter to get the check.
The service was outstanding!!! The food was very authentic Italian and they had enough choices on the menu for everyone!! I will definitely be back!
Nice salad selections. I had Arugula and shrimp salad, and it was delicious. Wish it came with a piece of small baguette.
This is one of the gazillion times that we have dined here. However, they have made weird adjustments that are not the best. I had the warm glazed chicken salad. The salad mix that they use now has more basil than lettuce. Also, the salad doesn’t come with the bread chopsticks, but two chips which does not look or taste great. On top of that, the chicken breast that you get now is smaller than half of the palm of my hand. I used to be able to finished my salad and chicken at the same time. Now, I am stuck with more salad than chicken. The bowl of tomato soup that I received as an appetizer has gotten bigger, which is great.
Vanessa, our server, was wonderful. She checked up on us frequently. I ordered a glass of rosè and was asked to show my ID. However, another group of girls came in and ordered drinks and none of them were asks. It put a sour taste in my mouth to think about the difference in treatment.
I was meeting a friend that is also a client for lunch. It is a great place to talk and the food and service is excellent. I will continue to utilize whenI need to be a the perimeter.
