We enjoyed our time at La Rustica. It’s a family owned restaurant and you could feel that the food was made with love. Best lasagne I’ve had in my life. It’s BYO which is great for travellers on a budget. Thanks!

ignore the Trip advisor reviews and eat elsewhere in Surfers. Marinara pizza was soggy and inedible and the staff didn't care. Bad food + bad attitude = bad experienceMore
