Took some relatives from out of town and we all liked everything about the resturant.
Specials were pricy but the food was very good

Always a great experience at Rustico's! We use this as our go-to restaurant for both everday dining and special occasions.

The food was great and the service also very good. The problem for us was the crowded space with tables close together causing a high noise atmosphere where it was difficult to talk and be heard.

Without a doubt, one of the finest, friendliest restaurants we frequent. NEVER a bad meal. I’m Italian and hard to please when it comes to Italian restaurants. Rustico NEVER disappoints!

Besides it’s great menu, they always have a large “Specials” selection. Can’t go wrong!

The food is very good. The service is usually very good. The management and hostess were poor. The hostess seemed either untrained or poorly trained and management has an attitude of not caring. The difficulty at the front desk started (what should have been a good experience) off the meal on the wrong foot.

Deserves the term "gourmet restaurant." Food was exceptional. Duck, branzino over tri color ravioli stuffed with vegetables, fettucini with mushrooms and veal meatballs, linguini with red clam sauce.
Delicious. Restaurant was packed as usual.

This is one of those strip mall gems. You walk in and it feels like you've been taken to an urban area and maybe even an earlier time. Service was excellent. I picked the wrong appetizer, but the fresh lasagna was fantastic. We also had the clam linguine that had the garlic wine broth instead of the thicker stuff many restaurants serve.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. All in the party of 4 were very complementary.
We have been looking for a new place for dining out since our favorite restaurant has closed.
I think we have found our new favorite. Excellent chowder, duck, plank salmon, and short ribs.

Was disappointed with the main course. We chose the Pasta with Shrimp "special". The sauce was very bland and actually had no taste. We expected much better. On a more positive note, we thought that the Caesar salad was very fresh and tasty.

We come here often..normally I'd give this 4 and 5 stars. I'll admit it WAS New Year's Eve...however we have been here before on New Year's Eve....with always a 9:00 reservation...so:
We were getting a little upset that arriving at 9:00 we were told they were clearing a table and it would be just a few minutes, and were not seated until 9:30. Service was OK..but slow..took about 10 minutes before we got noticed. Server knew the menu and specials and was very pleasant....however I never did get the decanter for my wine which I asked for. NOTE TO RESTAURANT: PLEASE educate your servers that asking a patron who brings (or even orders) wine if they would like the bottle uncorked so it can breath awhile...does NOTHING! Decant the wine or pour it in the glasses to let it breath if it need time. Yes, I'm a wine-o but certain things bug me like that and also not automatically pouring a short taste. Yes, I'll be back. Love the restaurant, especially the crispy duck....best around. But probably will not go back on a major holiday again.

First you need to read what I requested never put near a busing station! What we next? Also my channel purse on the back of my chair knocked over at least 10 times.
Than put under my leather fur coat, changed sides worse !
Scared the coat was going to be ruined!!
I also requested to be next to a Wall our friend can not hear real good! No we put in a noisy area.
Just rude
Can find better Italian elsewhere
No apologies when I said something on the way our
