Really friendly service from our waiter Ecu, nothing was too much trouble! Food was great for value. Will visit again.
Thank you very much for this, it is much appreciated. Ecu never fails to give diners a good experience. We look forward to your next visit.
Arrived on time and waited 30 minutes to order then watched customers arriving after us getting served with there main meals before us. A party of 4 who arrived 20 minutes after us got there meals and finished before our meals arrived. We kept asking the staff when we getting our meals and got the same reply won’t be long. In the end I payed for our drinks and left.
Thank you for this Dennis. As was explained to you on the evening the two tables you mentioned had pre-order (one via phone and one upstairs whist having a pre dinner drink). We believe you had your starters, it was an issue with your mains. We prepare each and every dish fresh and we do have a wait time at busy period which MOST of our lovely guests know and are patient with. We are obviously not for you but wish you well in your future dining experience.
Nice drinks, lovely food but not much choice.
Menu should be changed every couple months
Thank you for this lovely review and rating. We take on board what you are saying about the menu. We are looking to change it soon. The only issue with having a more extensive menu is the stock. All of our food is prepared fresh to order, so to keep costs down we offer a smaller menu.
Requested a table for 4 in the upper dining area rather than the cellar as had 2 party members with disabled mobility issues. On arrival the table had been allocated to someone else (party of 2) which meant there was only 1 other table available which was for 2! The front of house apologised and pulled 2 round tables together into a space suitable for 3 (max) which left 1 person between the door and stairs. I sat in that position but spent the whole time either cold or with people squeezing behind me and talking over my food.
The food was ok, garlic bread was gorgeous and deserts were lovely. Mains were a bit bland but filled us up! A pretty ‘meh’ experience!!
Thank you for this. We are sorry that we could not sit you where you wanted but other diners were already sat there. If we had had more notice then of course, we would have accommodated your request. You were asked several times if everything was OK and the response was positive with no complaints, so to see a review like this baffles us. If you don't like something you are eating, tell us, we will change it, no fuss.
Amazing and Great quality food with lovely staff.
Never fails to please❤️
Never took any photos but had fillet steak with vegetables & crème brûlée for dessert was unreal.
🙏🙏🙏 Thank you from the whole team 🥰
Super friendly staff and the food was amazing
Amazing restaurant with delicious food🤤 great staff and my favourite Latino music ❤️
Thank you very much we are glad you enjoyed the whole experience. We like the music to be upbeat and lively, our Team love to give that party vibe. We hope to see you again soon.
Disgusting service… 2.5hrs we waited. They forgot to take our order and we had to leave due to hunger. No apology or reduction of the drinks bill. Very much ruined our Saturday evening

Impeccable service and excellent food would recommend
Thank you very much. We hope to see you again soon.
Visited here for the first time for a family birthday celebration.
We were made to feel most welcome and the restaurant made a huge effort to ensure we were happy with every aspect of our meal. The food was gorgeous- we had a variety of foods- garlic breads, pizza, salmon tagliatelle, calzone and meatballs. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. We had a variety of well made cocktails too. Strawberry daiquiri highly recommended!
Nice touch from the restaurant and a complete surprise was birthday confetti on the table and balloons.
A total surprise was the staff rendition of Happy Birthday to my son who took it in good spirits even though he nor us were expecting it!
We will be back!
Thank you very much indeed for this glowing review. The Team absolutely love to share celebrations with our guests and do it with gusto. It is safe to say, if you are shy and retiring, don't let them know it is a special occasion😉 On this occasion we are glad that your son took it with the spirit it was given. You tried a lot of our menu, so it is great that everyone enjoyed their meal. We love the fact that you will be back and hoe it is soon.
Lovely food and great selection of wine. Staff are friendly and helpful.
Thank you very much, we hope to see you again soon,
First visit to this place. Couples date night for us. Friendly from walking into the place and checking we were happy throughout the evening. Lovely Kameron our waiter was so friendly and helpful he’s an asset to the place. Steak dish was lovely and the chicken dish also. Very good portions and good value for money, not expensive at all. Hot food, nice atmosphere so definitely visiting again

First time at La Rustica, and we loved it. What a fantastic place with excellent staff that go above and beyond, everyone really friendly and welcoming, and the food was absolutely amazing, authentic Italian dishes that tasted delicious. We will definitely be going again and we highly recommend it as well, special thanks to Cameron that served us.
Be seeing you soon

Evening date night for myself and partner. Second time we have been and it certainly will not be the last! Absolutely gorgeous food and the staff were so attentive and helpful!
Everyone needs a date night. We are glad you enjoyed our food and service. It means a lot to the team. We hope to see you again soon.
Excellent food. The pizza and pasta was beautiful. I would definitely visit again. A taste of Italy at home!
Thank you so much for this amazing review. We can't match the Italian weather, but we are thrilled we matched the food.🙃 We hope to serve you again soon.
Nice enough food , drinks , great fish main and good bruschetta starter for myself and my wife had the pasta ,desserts were good apart from the creme brûlée . Service was relaxed but good and not in a hurry or pressurised and similar to Actual service if you eat in Italy . The only downside was cleaning around us getting the tables ready for the next day which is a big no in my book as it makes you uncomfortable if you are among the last in the resteraunt and feel,like you have to hurry up . Apart from that , all very good .
Thank you for this candid review it is much appreciated. We are sorry that you felt pressurised, it is never our intention for any guests to feel they have to leave especially at the end of the evening. We replenish tables as they are vacated as a matter of course, but please never feel that it is an indicator that we want you to leave. We do hope you will dine with us again.
Lovely food, fantastic ambience and friendly, enthusiastic staff. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and come again!
Thank you for taking the time to rate and review us. It is very much appreciated. We look forward to serving you again.
Quite expensive for what you get. Children's menu very minimal.
Had no cutlery when starter came out
We are sorry to hear this. It is very strange that you had no cutlery as our tables are normally laid out ready for service. We do have a limited children's menu but are happy to adapt any of our dishes to suit. We are renowned for our excellent service and are very proud of it. We are sorry that it fell below your expectations on this occasion. Thank you for dining with us.
Lovely place, friendly staff, delicious food and highly recommend
Thank you so much for taking the time to rate and review us like this. It is our pleasure to serve. We hope to see you again soon.
Fantastic first time experience, food was delicious and staff was very friendly and attentive, will definitely be back xx
We hope to see you many more times. Thank you for the lovely review.
Lovely food, worth the money, large portions but did have to wait a long time
We are sorry that you felt the service let us down on this occasion. We hope that you will visit us again so that we can show you our usual standard of service. We are really pleased that you enjoyed the food though.
First time returning to La Rustica since covid, 100% recommend, lovely atmosphere and welcoming vibes. Food was as lovely as I remember and can’t wait to come back! Highly recommend
From start to finish the service, food and delivery was second to none, if I have to complain about anything it was waiting 40 minutes for out main but this was soon forgotten when the quality of food arrived, the service we got from Megan was excellent and nothing was to much trouble, a credit to your staff.
Thank you so much. We are sorry that there was a delay on your main course. We cook everything fresh but even so it should have been a shorter time than that. Megan is a gem and we are very lucky to have her.
Steaks were perfectly cooked. Holly as always looked after us and is excellent at customer service, attentive but not intrusive.
A lovely atmosphere, was celebrating my friends 23rd birthday, gave us complimentary shots and a bottle of Prosecco! Honestly 10/10 food was amazing and you staff are so Lovely
It was absolutely our pleasure. Thank you from Team La Rustica! 😉
Fantastic friendly service. We were made to feel very special! Food was incredible. Thank you all.
