Rustico (Westlake Village, CA)
This is a fabulous restaurant. My family and I have have never been disappointed. The atmosphere is warm and friendly.
The warm octopus salad is devine! We had it as an appetizer last week and came back a few days later to have as an entree while it’s available. Any selection is wonderful.
Great food and service as usual
Food excellent, prices have gotten a bit high so only 4 stars on value, service excellent, too loud due to very noisy bar area. Hard to have a conversation. That really the only negative about dining at Rustico.
The food and service were very good. It's nice that they are open a little later than most restaurants in the area.
Food was delicious, but it was so loud that we could hardly hear each other speak. The room could use some baffling (to make the sound more tolerable) and the decor in the dining room seems a little worse for the wear. It’s in need of being refreshed.
Always a great meal. Pasta specials and pizzas are fabulous. B
The best neighborhood restaurant. Amazing, consistent food - We love to go and eat dinner at the bar!
Always love it here
This s now our go to restaurant. We love the food. They always have many specials, so there is a lot to choose from. Karla is a great server.
We were seated in the bar area, that would not be our first choice, but it was a last minute reservation,
It turned out to be not so bad. The food is great, all the wait staff are good & helpful...I go there a lot &
have never had a disappointing meal!!
We love this restaurant. The service is outstanding.
A local gem Italian, always delivers a great meal. All the salads are great, and usually we go for the special salad or soup of the day. Another appetizer thats a favorite is the Proscuitto with Burrata. The Chef knows how to freshly slice the prosciutto perfectly. Daily specials are many, and this time we opted for the Pork Osso Bucco and Veal Parm. Both delicious. The Veal Part is a large portion, big enough for two small appetites to share. Desserts are always delicious, tried the cheesecake which is also enough to share. If you go on a night that David or Freddy work, they are our favorite servers.
Very disappointed as told them birthday celebration which in the past was a dessert to celebrate. Waiter did nothing but show dessert tray and when told was birthday still nothing. Why ask if special occasion when reservation is made if no follow thru.
Our neighborhood favorite!!! Great food and service every time we go. Ladies had the potato encrusted salmon which was amazing. Guys had veal parmigan with a bone that was so huge they took most of it home!
Always love it here!!!!
Great restaurant with very extensive menu. One of my favorites is their Chilean Sea Bass.
All in All a fine restaurant to have a good meal. Fish is always a good choice and Veal Chop.
My food was delicious. I had a tomato and Burrata salad and a linguine with seafood dish. Both were exceptional.
Rustico has very good food and service. One of the few very pleasant places in Thousand Oaks/Westlake.
Love this place!!! Unbelievable selection of specials not on the menu!
A true gem. We have eaten here for years and we have never had a bad meal or experience!
Rustico is consistent having attentive service, excellent food at a reasonable price for a nice establishment. The menu has variety and the wine selection is excellent.
Good food and attentive service at a reasonable price
Lucky for us, Rustico is our neighborhood restaurant! The best Italian around!
Wonderful food and service! So happy we found this gem!. We were seated on time and there was plenty of staff that catered to you with out asking. Highly recommend ❤️
Birthday. My husband and I and another couple had a lovely dinner at Rustico. I had the duck which was fabulous and my friend had the gnocchis. All the food is good here, this is our second dinner here within 5 days and we will be back again soon. Nice ambiance, and so far the service has been very good, fast and efficient.
We recently returned to Rustico after taking a break for a few years. We are local to the area and happened to hit Rustico a few nights when they were off their game. Whatever caused that blip in their performance they are 100% over it now. We've had dinner there 3 times in the last month and each time the food, service and atmosphere has been fantastic. Though italian based, their menu is broad with numerous specials options daily. My husband and our friends are impressed with Rustico overall. From the hostesses, to the wait staff, to the chef and food and drinks, they are on top of it and the end result for us was a great experience each time.
what a great find . we wanted something different . I went online and took a chance... so glad we did, the food was outstanding, the service impeccable. Thank you for treating us like royalty on our first visit.. we will be back. Willie and Bob
Food was bad. Fish was missing sauce, chicken was salty. Sauce was salty
Excellent food but the server could have been more attentive
Dinner at Rustico’s was a well orchestrated event. Our food was delicious, I had the crispy duck and my husband had a pasta that he said was excellent. Their deserts selection is such that you will have to come back several times in order to sample all the tempting delights. Service was impeccable and wine list was good
Always perfect David our server is the best
He makes everyday dining special
We have been to Rustico before and always love it. Service is friendly and competent and the food is outstanding. We will patronize this restaurant again for special occasions.
Carla, our server, was terrific. She made our evening very special.
Wonderful food and great service. We’ll definitely go again.
Always a great meal!
Great time as usual
I love this restaurant for both lunch and dinner. It has a great atmosphere and music. The servers are kind, polite and attentive. I highly recommend Rustico (Westlake).
Duck was a little tough. Otherwise food was excellent. It was my birthday and I was given a complimentary tiramisu which was delicious.
Excellent food and service. We ate homemade pasta and I highly recommend. Also try their Octopus salad...
We absolutely love our server Karla. She made our dinner so enjoyable. We love the food here also.
