Wow so I'm the first to give this restaurant a bad review... Ok, so I haven't tried the Rustico on Rothchild but the one on Basel has been bad every time I went there. Friends were able to convince me to go there 3 times in total and I regretted it afterwards every time.
From my understanding, this place once used to be better and their quality decreased. That explains at least why my friends were hyped about it, but were also disappointed when we ate there.
The service was different depending on the nights, ranging from bad to average. Usually a bit slow as this place tends to get very full.
The food is what really bothers me about Rustico: For the price of 50-60 Shekel for pasta (that's almost $17), I expect home-made noodles, but most of the dishes just have noodles from the supermarket. There are though a few home-made pastas.
But even if you take those, the sauces are bad. Just greasy and tasteless. When I got one of the places on the bar, I was also able to see why. The cook used half a bar of butter for my dish alone!
I haven't had any other dishes than the pastas, but it's pretty much their main menus..
They do have a nice interior design though.
