Went to Rustica after failing to find the restaurant we were originally looking for. However, we were glad we went as the food was delicious (I had the Pasta Bolognese and my husband had a pizza). They provide great bread with evoo from the local Fiore. Portions were HUGE - providing us with another meal in our timeshare unit. Wide... More

My friend and I had a fun time researching our found-online list of Rockland and Camden restaurants over Thanksgiving weekend. We were staying locally and wanted to enjoy a nice meal together in the area. So many of the region's websites showcased delectable cuisine and fabulous settings, so it was really hard to choose which one to make a reservation... More

Such a good meal. Wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. Food was incredible. We had a party of four and we all ordered different things. I had the bistro steak, which was perfect. My wife had the sausage and eggplant, which was better than you could imagine. Some restaurants just nail it, and Rustica gets it right every time.

Wandering down the street trying to find a late night place to eat and found Rustica. We got a great seat near the window and had a great meal. Big plates of food we couldn't finish. My wife had the beat salad and I had the cesar. Both were excellent. Then, we made the mistake of ordering more! She had... More

We had dinner here on the evening of our wedding, and the food was stellar. The only drawback was the service, which wasn't bad but not overly great either. On our last night in town we decided to return and again the food was amazing, and the same waitress was absolutely one of the best ever. We'll check the first... More

My wife and I really like Rustica and always stop there when we're in Rockland near dinner time. The food is very good and the service is friendly and very good too. We both love their chicken parm and usually get that. We shared a excellent caesar salad as an appetizer during our last visit. If you're looking for a... More

Best pizza I've ever had and I've had pizzas all over the world. The salads were great, esp the arugula with crispy eggplant.

Couldn't agree with previous review more. Had wonderful,attentive service. i particularly appreciate it when a waitperson will make separate checks for numerous couples at a table and do it so effortlessly that you don't feel you spoiled their day with all that additional work. Meals were quite hearty and delicious, despite how crowded and busy the restaurant was we all... More
