We stopped here on the way home from a family event in Annapolis for a (very) late dinner, and we were very pleased with our experience. Excellent food perfectly prepared -- especially the seafood. They have an interesting wine list as well (Italian wines only.) We will definitely be back.

We have eaten here once with friends and twice by ourselves. As the name suggests, Italian dishes are their specialty

I ordered a pasta dish Capellini Pugliese. It was by far the worst dish I have had there and possibly ever. Not only was it tasteless, the appearance was enough to reject it. I mentioned to the waiter that the chef might consider taking it off the menu. When the bill came and the meal was included....I had only tasted... More

this is a wonderful place to have a great dinner with friends and family. I would tell all who plan on visiting the area to stop in and have a bite to eat or maybe just a few drinks with the most friendly people I have ever meet.

Have been here twice for dinner and have been very pleased both times. Great service and food in a charming and casual, somewhat out of the way spot. Plenty of parking behind the restaurant. Has a romantic feel, especially after dark. Moderate pricing. Serving size is generous; you will not leave here hungry!

Genuinely authentic Italian cuisine. A bit weak on the wine list but the food is great. Service is friendly and knowledgeable.

The food was average, the wine list well priced. It could have been a place you returned to because you like the atmosphere (cute enough) or it was good value for a weeknight meal when you don't want to cook. Except, except, any request is just to much trouble. You get the sense there is a bright child in the... More

They have outdoor seating, which is great for people watching while enjoying a nice dinner and drinks. Their happy hour is pretty good and the flat bread pizza's are excellent!

We've been to Rustico a number of times. The last time we were there they had an off-night--out of things, kitchen very slow, etc. But because of good experiences we wanted to give them another chance and we are very glad we did because they're back on their game. This is a charming restaurant. Physically it is divided into smallish... More
