Almost can't find words to express how much my colleagues and I love, love, love this place. Three of us travel A LOT together and are calling this the best Italian we've ever had. Nino is amazing - his personal touch says it all, from telling us his daily process to shop, prep, serve, and entertain his customers. Dishes not... More

Although we had a reservation and there were several empty tables, we were offered only a table for two cramped in a corner where the servers passed close by. We left and had a wonderful meal at Paradisio.

We look forward to our annual trip to Florida just so we can return to Rustico's. We can always count on both the food and service to be 5 star. I usually order the specials and have never been disappointed. This is as authentic an Italian restaurant was you will find outside of Italy! Enjoy!

Terrific food, superb service and a warm atmosphere - the perfect trifecta! I've been to Rustico many many times over the past several years - and it is ALWAYS a delightful experience. And last night was no exception - it was just an awesome meal. The yellow tail snapper in lemon/caper sauce was excellent. The menu offers many great choices,... More

I'll preface this review by stating that Rustico is our go to spot. The service is divine. The food is delicious. Make sure to save room for dessert. My family's go to is tiramisu. We've enjoyed it all over the world, but everyone thinks Rustico's is the best. There's a nice wine list and the prices are quite reasonable. Enjoy... More

I have been to several parts of Italy and without a doubt, I can honestly say that the food at this restaurant is the closest to Italy I have ever found. It's a beautiful hole in the wall that is romantic and fun.

No visit to Palm Beach is complete for us if we don't call Nino for a reservation at his "Rustico Italiano" restaurant, which is coming up on 20 years in Lake Worth. Last week, we came late on Sunday, and found the place crowed. We were incredibly happy with our very memorable meal, which included these delicious appetizers: stuffed peppers... More
