Great food and enjoyed our visit, but the bartender kind of killed our night. Nothing like being ignored TWICE while trying to get a drink while waiting for your table . Put a sucky start onto a great meal. Don't expect much at the bar...More

We were very surprised with the excellent meal we had. My husband had the gnocchi and I had the penne alla bolgonese. It was one of the the best meals we have had in a long time. Highly recommend if you are in Rockland Maine...More

We have visited Rustica several times now. The food is really good, and consistently good. The prices are fine, great bread and has Geary's on tap.

I've had dinner here many times, and have enjoyed most of the dishes very much, with the notable exception of the eggplant parmigiana (which is much too thickly sliced and too cheesy). The pasta is very good, in general, and the risottos are superb! Unfortunately,...More

Don't think it was on menu. But no harm calling to see if they can make it for you.
Do you serve boiled lobster

It's not the place you want to pay just for boiled lobster. Too costly for plain lobster. Claws, about a mile down Main Street is the place to go for that, nice water view , very casual , most outdoor type place.
do you take reservations?
