Very Helpful staff! Nice charm and very good food!
Food & service good. Ate in outdoor area which was what we requested.
Food is always very good a nd the service is great!
Great food every time we eat there
Friendly staff and always accommodating to everyone’s needs!
Sat outside which we quite enjoy and hope restaurants will continue to offer. Between one appetizer, one pasta and one entree and all were excellent.
Met my daughter and her husband for dinner here (they live in Manhatten Beach) and had a very nice evening. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was good. I had the crispy duck and enjoyed it thoroughly. Desserts were great
I do not recommend this place, we’ve been a few times and have not been treated well.
Great food. Great service. As always. Love eating outside.
The food & service were excellent. However we were seated at a table a few feet away from the table where they assemble take out orders. Maybe the worst table in the restaurant- very busy, noisy, lots of traffic back & forth. We were celebrating our anniversary- not very romantic.
Ww had a really nice evening with terrific food and service. We have been to Rustico a number of times over the years and it never disappoints . We strongly recommend it.
Food was good
The place is overpriced for the quality of food served .... extremely dated and old environment! It’s evident they are NOT using fresh foods ( possibly even frozen ) and charging “ high quality “ prices .
I would donate the food to Olive Garden at 4X the price :((
Overall, the food was excellent. Be aware, you may be cold if you sit in the outside tent area in the evening. The servers were friendly and professional. However, the service was a bit slow, they seem short staffed which is not an uncommon problem these days.
The hostess could have been friendlier, more welcoming, considering they are the first to greet you at a restaurant. We asked a question and were met with an abrupt dismissive answer. Not good. To be fair, the rest of the staff were great.
We had 5:30 reservations and were quickly seated the service was great and friendly, the waiter brought us water a basket of warm bread selections and fresh bruschetta, for dinner I had the lamb ragu the pasta was fresh the food was delicious no complaints, my only issue was sitting in the tent in the parking lot. I totally understand with all the COVID restrictions/protocols the restaurants are doing their best and spending a ton of money on modifications and I'm just grateful the restaurants are fully open now. Overall a great experience I will definitely be back and I would recommend this restaurant.
One of our favorite restaurants! We have been enjoying Rustico for over 15 years.
Always amazing. I have dined at Italian restaurants throughout LA ; the food at Rustico is as good as it gets.
Really great dinner on Mother’s Day !
Food was good but service was slow. Had to ask for coffee refills, took a long time to get our check.
Great Pasta - Service was supreme !
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.
Clara is a great waitress. It was nice to see her again
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!
Food delicious and large portions
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
FOOD ALWAYS GREAT. LOVE THEIR POUNDED VEAL CHOP DONE AL A PARM OR WITH CHOPPED TOMATOES AND GARLIC AND BASIL.
Excellent food with plenty of specials and the kitchen will make almost anything you request.
We ate in the tented outside space. It was cozy and inviting. The food was terrific as always and our server delightful.
Excellent quality service and food. Authentic Italian cuisine and at good prices. Romantic yet not dark.
The staff was friendly and incredibly accomadating. The food was top notch and they had the best tiramisu my wife and I have ever had. Will be back for sure.
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.
Very good food and superb service which is a challenge in today's world.
Food is always outstanding!! This is our "go to" place.
My family was in town from Oregon. Sonny and Monica took amazing care of us, as usual. My family was suuuuper impressed. Food was perfect and service beyond that. I will continue to make my twice weekly stops there. For sure
Always a delight coming here. The staff is always very gracious and available. Service is kind and food is outstanding. I always allow the chef to make whatever he wants and I am NEVER disappointed.
Love this restaurant!
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.
