Excellent service, wonderful food and great atmosphere. The staff here are legendary. Menu is large and varied. The specials are always worth co siderite g but even basic pastas are great. Good wine list also

Been to Rustico's numerous times and it's been excellent every time. By far the most authentic Italians in Aberdeen with very tasty food. Interior manages to be small and traditional yet there is a surprising amount of space in the building. An Italian Tardis!

For no particular reason, I haven't eaten in Rustico for years - and I wish I had. Went a couple of weeks ago with some friends and it was great. Staff were friendly and very efficient and the good was lovely. Menu very extensive but was tempted by one of their specials - lovely Sea Bream! Will not leave it... More

It is an Italian restaurant owned by an Italian and a Greek. The food is nice. The price is OK - normal price for a restaurant in UK. However, what I do not like is that all the food is coming in a bath of olive oil... Yes OK we understood it is a Mediterranean restaurant but come on...put the... More

We enjoyed a fine dinner here. Warning: the portions are big. Didn't quite finish the excellent spaghetti carbonara or the cannelloni. Perhaps it was because we ate all the duck pate starter.

This is a louder, upbeat place with a fun vibe. Food was very good as was service for a table of 8, seated without reservation upon arrival. Wine list good and not overwhelming, the Chianti we had was very nice at L33. S[specials were well received by those who ordered them

The pizza was moist and base was as it... More

Very good dining here but not cheap and not a surprise as the quality is excellent. Service seemed a little slow but why hurry its a relaxing and clean place to dine.
