Staying in Birmingham for a couple of nights, our hotel recommended this restaurant. My wife and I had one of our best ever Italian meals here. Would come again next time we visit.

We had a pre-theatre meal here. My husband chose to start with the antipasti misto which to be fair would have fed both of us, followed by a pizza which was good. I had the Bresaola which was lovely followed by sea bass fillets with spaghetti which was absolutely delicious. The fish was cooked to perfection. We had a couple... More

I've worked in the Jewellery Quarter and never visited this place. I used to walk by it on the way to the Hotel du Vin and ignore it. Now I've visited and what a super little restaurant it is. Not Rustica in any way but clean, sharp and with an excellent menu. The wine selection is also good, even the... More

Impromptu visit while staying nearby. What a delightful meal. Gorgeous goats cheese starter with walnuts followed by the most delicious mushroom risotto. Fabulous and great for vegetarians

Had dinner here with a group of friends and the food was amazing! They're clearly used to catering for large groups as there were several others around us, but it never felt too busy or we never felt that they didn't look after us well enough.

We came to Cucina Rustica for our works xmas night out and a fantastic night was had by all. Great food, my only personal quibble was it would be nice to have more vegan choices on menu! Service was 5 star. Beautiful layout inside especially with xmas decorations. Great choice of drinks. Will definitely be coming back!

We had booked a table at Cucina Rustica and if I was thinking this was just another of the many restaurants in Birmingham I was totally wrong, the staff were really pleasant and helpful and always smiling which made me think they enjoyed working there, the food was just scrumptious with generous portions, so unfortunately after a starter and main...
