We had booked a table at Cucina Rustica and if I was thinking this was just another of the many restaurants in Birmingham I was totally wrong, the staff were really pleasant and helpful and always smiling which made me think they enjoyed working there, the food was just scrumptious with generous portions, so unfortunately after a starter and main...

The restaurant looks lovely from the inside well decorated and the staff are very helpful. We had a great evening with lovely food and the... More

Went there with some mates after the NEC Classic this year, just by chance. Not very big in space, but huge in terms of service, and the food was simply fantastic. Tris de Pasta is highly recommended, and the Antipasta with grilled goats cheese was simply divine! As a Norwegian I thought the prices were quite nice.... ( £ 24... More

Visited here many times, situated near St Paul's Square and the Jewellery Quarter it is in a fabulous setting. The restaurant is spacious and light with friendly staff, the food is good although some portions have been larger than I could finish. Highly recommend this place.

This restaurant is set in the Jewellery Quarter of Birmingham not far from St Pauls. The decor of the restaurant is very cosy and the food is out of this world. The staff are very attentive without being overpowering and very haoppy. Would highly recommend this restaurant

Dreadfully slow, tepid food and sloppy! Dont get me wrong i know this is not going to be Rick Stein in Bologna but good grief, it tasted worse than a tesco pasta sauce ready meal. Would not go again and was way way too expensive for what it was. Very overpriced and we also got overcharged for things we did... More

We ate here on the way to the Jam House in Birmingham. As a first time visitor I was very impressed with the very modern look to the place and the friendliness of the staff from the moment walked through the door. I could not believe the size of the starters.... thinking gosh how will I eat the main. The... More

My friend and I called in on a Monday lunchtime. The two girls who looked after us were very friendly and pleasant with out being intrusive. Olives and home made breads were brought out to us before our meal and they were delicious. We did not have to wait long for our food and I have to say both dishes... More
