Came here with friends for a catch up and had a table upstairs which was really lovely. Staff were attentive and the food was delicious. The house white wine was superb and well priced - my friends were less impressed with the price of a bottle of prosecco! Definitely worth a visit.

Attentive and friendly service from walking in the door until we left, despite it being very busy. Starters of calamari and smoked fish cakes were both fresh and tasty. Apparently was one of the best calamari dishes my husband has had in the UK. Mains of linguine marinara and padellata siciliana both had an abundance of beautifully cooked seafood and... More

Eat here with a long lost friend and his wife. The ambience and friendliness of the staff is really good but that's where it ends. The food for all 3 of us was very poor and I also ended up being very ill for the next few days. I would definitely not recommend anyone eating here.

This restaurant is close to our daughter's flat so we decided on here for her birthday meal. Although my wife had been here many years ago, it was a first visit for both our daughter and myself. From entering the premises, I sensed that this would by a good evening. My wife skipped a starter but I had mushroom soup... More

Very good meal. Staff very helpful and attentive. Steak was cooked to perfection and the wine flowed to accompany the meal.

Service was fast and friendly from start to finish, felt very taken care of. There was a wide range of meals outside of the standard italian menus repertoire (carbonara, arrabiata, etc.) as well as various specials. Food was fresh, timely and delicious. Really enjoyed our evening.

The service in Rustic is very good, the staff are fast and friendly, however on this occasion I found the food disappointing. My sister in law and I both had the pasta with prawns, they came shelled, if it had said on the menu I would not have ordered them. It was tasty but far to oily, dissapointing.

Had lunch here with friends a few weeks ago. There was the option of a very reasonably priced lunch menu which had a lot of different options. Staff service was excellent - attentive and helpful but certsinly not over the top. The decor and environment were lovely. Looking forward to going back.
