We have been here on many occasions with friends and as a couple and have never been disappointed. The house wine is lovely and well suited to the food. There's no problem sharing starters or main courses, if you aren't very hungry, and even if you have over ordered then simply ask for the remainder to go. Very reasonably priced... More

If you want to eat here you'd best book in advance or be prepared to wait for a table, especially at peak times. This shows how good the food is. We've dined here 3 times, having pizza the first time, risotto another and my partner had the menu del dia which he said was lovely. Always a welcome from the... More

Gorgeous, tasty food and a heart warming atmosphere. One of the best restaurants I have visited in Calpe. Authentic Italian cuisine. My family and I enjoyed all of our food. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. They make you feeling like family.

This place is ok. It's a busy little spot anyway. The service seemed a little slow, and we ate there twice during our stay. Staff seemed friendly, but were too busy really. I would probably eat here again...

We had a nice meal here last night. We were surprised how busy it was but fortunately the waitress was able to find us a table. We had to wait a while to be served but once ordered the food came promptly. I would highly recommend but perhaps try and catch them when they're not as busy.

Was disappointed in La Rusticana. There are a number of pizza places in Calpe and I would love a week of going to every one to really decide which my favourite is. Hadn't been to La Rusticana for about 4 years and don't think we'll be returning. The pizza just wasn't as cooked as I would have liked. The cheese... More

Last Friday we had dinner at La Rusticana. The best pizza we had in years! I had the most expensive pizza for almost 10 euros, but most of them were 6 or 7 euros. In Belgium you almost pay double. And the train that rides at the ceiling of the restaurant is just priceless!

Good food and good service at a great price! We visited here on our last full night and as our son loves pizza we thought we'd let him have his favourite. Had to laugh as he ordered the garlic bread starter not realising it was the equivalent of a full size pizza so he ended up trying to eat 2... More
