Had enough fried clams and Haddock? Rustica delivers big bold portions of delicious italian fare with a modern twist. We really enjoy their mixed green salad with fried artichoke and citrus dressing- a great combination of bright flavors to begin dinner with. The eggplant parm...More

Four of us had a wonderful Italian dinner here recently. We knew in advance that portions were large. Women shared a salad and entree and still did not finish the latter. Men ordered individual entrees and took a portion home. Very good service, nice people,...More

Large portions of delicious food. Most entrees in the $18 - $26 range. Nice atmosphere, small cozy bar area. The Scottish salmon over fried potato strings was the best ever. Can't wait to go back .

The last time I ate here, I thought this was a 4.0 restaurant, but I'm downgrading it a bit to a 3, after eating here in January. Why? In the past, we have liked the risotto and fish dishes generally. I've tried the eggplant parmigiana...More

Rustica is my favorite place in Rockland to eat! It's my first place to recommend. The bread and olive oil is the best way to start off. The salads are light, but a healthy way to get ready for all the pasta you might have...More

Visiting Rockland while on vacation, had a yearning for ITalian Food. Rustica reminded us of an old Italian restaurant in NYC. The tables were covered in black and white tablecloths, and were at a good distance from each other so you could still have a...More

This is a 100% unsolicited review. Saturday night 28 October 17, a very busy place. During the height of tourist season it has got to be a combination circus and madhouse for the staff. Our lone negative impression is in the wait for seating area...More

Don't think it was on menu. But no harm calling to see if they can make it for you.

It's not the place you want to pay just for boiled lobster. Too costly for plain lobster. Claws, about a mile down Main Street is the place to go for that, nice water view , very casual , most outdoor type place.
