Japanese food, done very well, very simple and clean. Good vibe at the bar seating, tables for bigger groups or intimate meal. Quite expensive and not hugely filling. Very very fast and efficient service, which you could slow down to prolong your meal

About the restaurant
Fine Italian food in the very centre of Birmingham is Cucina Rustica's trademark, a comfortable, atmospheric Italian restaurant popular with both locals and tourists visiting this vibrant city. Although modern and slick in its execution, the choice of deep earthy colours and moody lighting, tactile materials such as wood and stone and the addition of characterful contemporary art and healthy, verdant plants give Cucina Rustica that slight traditional feel suggested by its name and a certain cosiness that gives it a home from home feel. Attention to detail is in every little touch here at Cucina Rustica, from the single rose placed on each table to the complementary olives produced on every guest's arrival. Equally, food is produced with great care, dishes traditionally Italian but done with flair and a certain amount of style, some unusual choices offered alongside classic favourites, all from the classic Italian cookbook and accompanied by a wide array of drinks.

Food was fantastic and so was the surroundings and atmosphere . Our waitress seemed as though she wasn’t wanting to be there , quite short speaking to us and generally felt like she wasn’t interested . All the other staff we came in contact with were fantastic though so they made up for her

The food was delicious and pipping hot. Service was attentive and the staff very accommodating. The only thing I would say is that the portion sizes are huge! If at all possible I would recommend doing starter size portions of some of the pasta’s as I hate to waste such delicious food but I was unable to finish my main.

The process of booking a big group can be difficult for the host. Especially when it comes to Pre-orders. But staff were helpful on the phone..food was expensive but was worth it. Atmosphere really nice.

What a lovely evening! It was my birthday meal out with my partner and the service was incredible as soon as we walked through the door, right up until we left. We didn't have to wait long to be served for food and drinks, any empty glass was immediately replaced with a new cocktail! The lovely girl who served us knew the menu and gave us recommendations. The food, OMG! Especially the pistachio tiramisu!! If we had a restaurant in the South Coast, we would be regular visitors! Hint hint ;) will definitely be coming back when we're visiting Birmingham again. I especially was incredibly humbled by the little birthday pudding at the end, and the singing! Thank you again!
