The food was fantastic and the staff even better. The restaurant was very busy but it never felt crowded and the service never lagged. Nice big menu and prices weren’t too expensive. Would absolutely go again.

First time diner. Not disappointed. Service was extremely efficient and attentive. Meals arrived quite quickly and portion size was very generous. Fully licensed bar and coffee afterwards was just the topping of a very nice dining experience.

We frequented La Rustica in its earlier location some years ago but our first visit to its location by the lake was very positive. Nice ambience and outlook. Terrific service.
Generous mains serves - Pollo Verdura with the chicken tender and nicely grilled, spiced just right and great salad and vegetables, especially some very tasty eggplant; Beef medallion was also excellent and cooked exactly to order (medium) as requested with great vegetables etc The Tiramisu and Cassata desserts were large and superb. Coffee tasted a little insipid however - admittedly we did order decaffeinated.

The restaurant is quite open and spacious. Seating is comfortable and there is a reasonable space between the tables. The food menu has an excellent range of choice and would satisfy all tastes. The wine menu has a good selection of wines at all price points. The quality of the food ordered was appreciated by all members of the dining group. There were no disappointments. The service by the staff was both friendly and professional. Why only a four rating? The noise! It has to be one of the noisiest restaurants in which I have ever eaten. One often needed to severely strain the voice to be heard on the other side of the table. Sound deadening is urgently needed. To conclude, if you do not mind a loud noise level, then this would be an excellent place to dine.
