Food was good but service was slow. Had to ask for coffee refills, took a long time to get our check.

Not as Italian as I was expecting. But the Salmon special was good. The rest of food was okay. There was a weird smell inside that tainted the mood. The service was okay too, just not good enough to make up for the mediocre experience overall.

Food and wine is always excellent here. I always make a point to take family here when I’m in town. Due to covid, had to dine in parking lot in a tent so no ambience. However, it was safe and quiet. Service is good while maintaining all safety measures. I will continue to return.

One of the best meals we have had in a long time. The service was fantastic, as were the NY steak, linguine with clams, and gnocchi! We will be back soon!

We ALWAYS love Rustico & we weren’t disappointed after not going out to dinners for over a year (due to Covid).
Thanks for keeping everything perfect!

It was a great experience! Although it was a little chilly, they made us comfortable by providing heaters. The staff was very attentive and pleasant. The food was amazing! Hopefully we can return once dining (outdoor or indoor) resumes.

Use to love going there for dinner. Thought the lunch was very disappointing. Plus, there were 8 older men sitting at a table with no masks coming in or leaving

We had the parpadelle with lamb and sliced truffle on top, and filet sole for entrees. Appetizer was excellent as well ( Calamari with potatoes). The wine was on point, we had a bottle of Sicilian wine that complemented our food very nicely. The pumpkin cheesecake we took to go was very delicate and would highly recommend. Highly recommend this local gem. Was also nice tone seated inside for a change during this Covid era.

Our waiter was more than slow and ignoring us. Even after we said we where ready to order he would still ignoring us. I only left a 10% tip, maybe then he will get better in his job.
It was disappointing since we where there 2 weeks before and service was perfect.
I only will recommend your place if you are really series to take care off that waiter.

Lovely evening for sitting outside. Rustico's has made a great attempt to have ambience while being outside in the parking lot. It definitely make you feel comfortable with the distancing of tables etc. The food was delicious, as it always seems to be.

We were pleasantly surprised that there was indoor dining! The tables inside were at least ten feet apart. Our server was delightful. She was so sweet and accommodating . The bruschetta was wonderful. The heirloom tomato and Burrata salad was yummy. The branzino was delicious. Great local restaurant.

Sat outside where they created a lovely setting in the front of restaurant where there is grass and trees. It was a lovely evening and enhanced the environment. Tables were socially distant and everyone wore masks. Service was excellent, food was very good. Delicious vegetarian pizza.

Rustico has really stepped up to deal with the COVID-19 restrictions. They have a patio with nicely spaced seating and have also opened up al fresco dining out in the grassy part of the parking lot. The menu and food remain strong and consistent. Great drinks and wonderful relaxed service. Corkage is $20 which is very reasonable these days. Just a great consistent restaurant with wonderful staff.

Wonderful people working here!! I left my wallet there and received a call within an hr of leaving notifying me and I went back to get it. Instead of waiting for me to realize I had left it and possibly freak out they took the time to get a hold of me so they have the highest marks ever from me!! Thank-you Rustico ~ I will recommend this restaurant to everyone and my family and I WILL be back 😊
