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.
I had the delicious special “ Chilean Sea Bass”. Service was great! I highly recommend this restaurant .😋
A special find this gem is a must dine with Chilean Sea Bass a great choice from the specials and on the menu don’t miss Gnocchetti with Mama Maria’s Bolognese Ragu
Service was A+++!
Great food at a very friendly place. Carla, our hostess, was great with amazing sense of humor.
only problem was we had to wait 40 min past our reservation. They were very nice and comp'd some lovely appetizers.
My favorite restaurant . Carla was wonderful as always. We had the specials, Chilean Sea bass and the halibut. Amazing!!!!!
Another great meal at Rustico. I had the salmon special with cauliflower primavera risotto. My husband had the short rib special which was excellent.
Food is always delicious, and so many specials!!!
My favorite is the veal Milanese, bone in, with mashed potatoes and sautéed spinach!
Even when not in the menu or a special they make it!!!
Will be back soon!
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.
EVERYTHING ON MENU IS SUPERB. LOVE THE HAM AND BURRATA APPETIZER. BEST PAPARDELLA WITH LAMB RAGU
We like this restaurant because they offer many specials, have great service and will hold a special table if you book in advance. The food is good and we have always had a great evening.
Thank you to Anna who very good care of us.
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!
Great service by all the staff
Live in Studio City but it was definitely worth the drive. Loved it and will return.
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.
Love the consistency!
Great, our 27th anniversary!
Our favorite local restaurant. Always great food and service.
Food was fabulous as usual! Service was wonderful! Family and friends love getting together at Rustico!
The Chilean Sea Bass on risotto was excellent, as was the Branzino.
Service (Anna et al) was also excellent.
This is the best & most enjoyable restaurant in the area.
David was so great in providing excellent service and we truly appreciated his attention.
Love Rustico! The best food hands down!
We always get the best service and delicious food at Rustico!
The first time we went to Rustico we thought the food and the ambience was very good.
Hence, we came back, and not to our surprise, it was just as good as the first. Excellent food and service.
Great food and service.
We chose this restaurant because the food is always excellence and worth the money. The service, however, was unimpressive.
We had a really nice time at Rustico - - - - Great Food, Great Variety, Great Service!
Took some relatives from out of town and we all liked everything about the resturant.
Specials were pricy but the food was very good
Was seated on time, service was very good, accommodation of special requests and food excellent.
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.
Good food enjoyable evening great service
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.
Second time there. Food great, service excellent, noisy. Loud table near us....
