Went here as a big mixed group of friends, including children. The food was wonderful, very generous portions and packed full of delicious flavours. I have been a few times to rustico's now and the food is always brilliant. Prices are average for a decent family style Italian. Could do with a bit of a revamp, but it does sort... More

Asked to have our bill split, only two separate bills for the table (party of four!)...however, this seemed to be a problem from the start with the waitor hesitant to say yes I can do that for you?..ended up being beyond difficult to get the correct bill for each party....they tried to stiff us by adding an extra bottle of...

We called last night and upon entry we asked if they had a table for two. We were asked if we had booked, and we said we hadn't so we were sat at the left hand side of the restaurant. Although the meal tasted quite nice, I could not enjoy it as there was a constant stream of people going... More

Food was average. Did not like sitting right next to the door for toilets. Had the lamb which was really nice. There was also traditional turkey etc which also looked ok. Thought it was a little pricey at 50 per head especially when some were having pizza as main meal, should have some sort of discount when only having pizza.... More

When Rustico's first opened it was really nice, but the last couple of times we have visited the food has been incredibly salty, and the staff not very friendly.

Four friends and I enjoyed lunch at this restaurant for a Christmas get-together in December. The service was so slow that we all had to ring our husbands and let them know that we would be an hour later than we had asked to be picked up. The food was excellent as it usually is and the Christmas menu was... More

Inexpensive Italian. My food wasn't great but that was down to choice. Have been a number of times and always been really tasty food without spending a fortune. Always busy but the service is good without long waits. Definitely worth a try.
