My wife and I had dinner at Rustico Italiano last night (a Saturday). This used to be our favorite Italian restaurant in the area, but the last couple of times we ate here, several years ago, we felt it had slipped a bit, and after our last visit my wife got sick to her stomach, so we stopped coming. However,... More

Traveling through Lake Worth just for a few hours, I decided to book a table at this incredible restaurant. Let me preface by saying I am of Italian descent, have eaten in Italy numerous times, and live in New York- where you can pretty much get the best pick of any cuisine. Rustico was an incredible dining experience: from the... More

As Some of you know who follow some of the reviews I have written, I have spent a lot of time in Italy, not to be pretentious but because I am of Italian decent and love everything about that country, second only in my love of America. Found this great little gem in Lake Worth and can't say enough about... More

You cannot say enough good things about this place. The atmosphere, service and the food, well the food reminds you of being in a small village in Italy!! It will leave you coming back for more. Best Italian in Lake Worth

I feel compelled to write a review of my favorite restaurant, not because I want more people to discover it, making it more crowded, but because I don't want a few complainers to spoil this amazing restaurant. I have lived in Palm Beach county for 14 years and have tried many Italian restaurants, none of which even hold a candle... More

Allow me to preface this by saying I've been going to Rustico for over 8 years. Everything is made fresh to order and the food tastes heavenly. Went again last night with my girlfriend, and Rustico did not disappoint. We started with the special zucchini appetizer which was fantastic, for our main dishes I got the gnocchi which are to...

Sorry but I can't agree with these reviews. We had the calamari appetizer which was nothing special. It was then followed by a branzino, a snapper and a boar ragu over pappadelle. The snapper ($37) the branzino ($37) were good but both had the same lemon and caper sauce ( not very creative). The boar Ragu with mushrooms over pappadelle... More

We loved the flavors that this restaurant brings to the dinner table! The beet gnocchi in goat cheese cream sauce was so original and sublime we swooned! The veggie lasagna, the unique salads, the deserts--it's all great! This is a nice spot, and it has relatively quick service as all the staff help serve your table. Enjoy!
