We had dinner here on St Patrick's Day. All three courses were delicious. We both had the specials for starters and our mains were whole lemon sole and the sea food pancake. The atmosphere was homely and relaxed and staff were very friendly. Would definately recommend this restaurant. Reasonably priced as well. Mary & Paul Belfast. ☘️😃

We visited Bath and were looking at eating at a different venue (which is not far from Rustico Bistro) unfortunately they were fully booked so we were forced to find an alternative. We were very lucky to find this little place. The food was lovely, the service was second to none. The only thing I did not enjoy was that... More

Lovely authentic Italian food. We went for the specials - fish and seafood, which were delicious. Really enjoyed watching the chefs at work!

The Welcome - a lovely greeting and genuine interest shown to us immediately on arrival. The Ambience- typical homely Italian - busy... More

I literally love this place. I live nearby and eat here regularly. The staff are so nice, service very efficient, food always great (having said that I usually have the same thing- the seafood pancakes are delicious though I have heard threats they may be taken off the menu..!) and the ambience is really authentic.

Went to the Rustico on the recommendation of our B&B host and it proved to be and excellent choice. From the calamari to the tagliatelle, all were excellent! The only downside is that the Speidini was slightly overcooked for my taste. The service was also very attentive and good. The meal was topped off with a Lemoncello Panna Cotta that... More
