I love this place. The food is absolutely delicious - it is the real deal Italian cuisine. Ordering one of their specials or off the menu - everything is tasty and beautifully presented. Their wine menu is deep and the service is outstanding. In addition, the acoustics are wonderful - you can actually hear your dinner partners talk without screaming above the din of the crowd. It is one of my favorite spots.

This is our favorite restaurant in the Conejo Valley. It’s like our own neighborhood “Cheers”.
Delicious food, best short ribs ever, wonderful staff and Roberto makes you feel like family.
We have been eating here for over 20 years and have never been disappointed.

Our waiter, Fredy, is great - so many specials were offered in addition to the standard menu. Rustico turns out excellent meals and it is always a challenge to choose. The Proscuitto and Burrata appetizer is a quality, perfectly sliced parma prosciutto served with a dollop of burrata and bread sticks. We've been coming here for y-e-a-r-s and this is the first time we were offered a lasagne special. We immediately decided to try it and so glad we did. It is light, not heavy and we ordered a side of amazing brussels sprouts that complimented it perfectly. Mauricio always offers an excellent homemade soup. The pizzas are more of an appetizer size, perfectly thin and crisp crust, and the best Margherita. Rustico is the Italian Gem in the neighborhood, friendly and never fails. Unfortunately, we are usually too full to order dessert. The entire staff here is excellent, offering the right amount of attention and everyone works together to ensure each table has a great dining experience.

The food was excellent, however, our waiter clearly was not interested in serving us promptly. We were a party of 3 and had to wait a long time for one of us to get her wine and then same thing with the salad course. Finally a very efficient busboy "took over" and it was much better after that. Still there was an error on the bill, so it was a bit of a bumpy ride. The ambiance was very pleasant and we would go back for the food and hopefully not have that waiter!

My husband and I had the special of the day - Chilean Sea Bass with horseradish and lemon risotto along with some carrots and asparagus. It was by far, the BEST sea bass I have ever had and the lemon risotto was an incredible companion dish. We had the coconut cake for dessert. Our waitress was exceptional. She was a pleasure to be around her. We plan on returning.

Hence, we came back, and not to our surprise, it was just as good as the first. Excellent food and service.

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.
