Couldn’t fail food and quality, the price isn’t average. But I would pay it again, as food was delicious. Service was ok, nothing special nor something to remember. Missing personal touch. Couldn’t see much of Covid measures. Would recommend for evening meal , no rush...to enjoy decor and foodMore

Visited here for my nephews birthday. We were directed to a lovely booth on arrival and given bread, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and olives. The menu is quite extensive and we are all non meat eaters so plenty of dishes to cater for that. Slight...mix up with my main, I ordered the salmon special which wasn’t on the menu but was described to me as salmon with potatoes and other veg. When my main arrived it was a cold dish of salmon, crab meat, avocado and prawns. It was very nice so I didn’t feel the need to return it. The food was delicious, the atmosphere great and the service was very good too. Looking forward to going back soon.More

We booked this well in advance but on arrival we were seated in a dark corner overlooking a dingy courtyard. We ordered pre dinner drinks and we were given complimentary bread and olives, our order was taken and within minutes it was served along with...the wine. The table was overcrowded with food and drinks. Once the starter was finished the main was served immediately giving no time to digest the starters. The food was pleasant and tasty.More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely time visiting Cucina Rustica for the first time (and definitely not the last) making the most out of the eat out to help out scheme! We loved the little terrace out on the front to enjoy a drink...before our meal. For the food we shared the antipasto which was a perfect size for two of us, and a nice selection. Followed by the trio of pasta - creamy veggie, chilli crab and bolognese (so delicious and amazing portion size) and cheesy garlic bread (also amazing & laden with plenty of cheese). To end we had the tiramasu for dessert. The service was very good. We didn’t catch the name of our waiter but he was very sweet and doing his best although everything took a while due to lack of staff (not his fault). We will certainly be back in the future.More
