We enjoyed the Valentines Day special menu. The salmon and seafood fettuccine were delicious. I really enjoyed the Red Velvet Cheesecake. We will be back!

Excellent service and the food was great. I had the steak and it was very tender. The grilled artichoke hearts were so good. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our first time there. We’ve been hearing about it and finally made it. The calamari was perfect-crisp but not dried out. Fried green tomatoes were amazing! I had the linguine with clam sauce, which was great although a touch too much oil for me but it was certainly authentic. The linguine was perfectly al dente. We will be back!!!

Reliable good food and atmosphere in a historic downtown Stevensville building. Has been there for years and is always dependable and friendly. Food is always good. We went for our annual family Christmas eve dinner.

For a fun weekend visit the antique shops next to and across the street and then finish with lunch or dinner at Rustico's.

Our family enjoyed a nice dinner before Christmas. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was great! We even left room for desserts which were great too!

We have been to Rustico a few other times before, but last week's visit was truly top notch. We went to celebrate the holidays, just the two of us, before traveling to see family. Food, service and ambiance were really fantastic.

Two of us at an off time...2:00 we were all alone .....our waitress was wonderful...very attentive without being overbearing ...she ran out after us when she discovered I had left my iPad on the table.
We each had a delectable crab bisque....flavorful and smooth with just the right consistency. She informed us that it is always made to order. We shared a sandwich of fresh crispy dark green lettuce......
We look forward to returning with more friends...

Nice local restaurant on Kent Island. Friendly staff, good food.
We were surprised to walk into a dinner for two special on Tuesdays, perfect, more than enough food for two. Good wine pours too!

We have been there a number of times for our ladies birthday lunches and have been very pleased every time with the food and service. We will keep coming back. We live on the Eastern Shore so it is about an hour drive and well worth the drive.
