My wife had a chicken pasta special and I had shrimp piccata. Both were excellent. The service was exceptional, the food was great and the atmosphere was quite pleasant. For a Wednesday evening, the place was buzzing

From the moment we stepped into Rustica with the wonderful aromas, we expected an outstanding meal and that is exactly what we each experienced. Prices are very reasonable and seasonings are amazing. Definitely will return on our next trip to Rockland.

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.
