We stopped here for our tea before heading back home which is an hour and a half journey away. Thinking Italian would be a good carby feed we chose rusticos. It's a lovely place, with some lovely waiters. Our food was faultless and I can say the lasagne with a portion of garlic bread is the best in the city!... More

How busy the place is speak volumes even on a week night it's packed! The food is great and the service too. The staff really know when they are need and when to leave you alone. On top of that it's not too expensive a nice dinner and a bottle of wine for two was about £50...great value!

I've visited Rustico several times and never been disappointed. The service is always friendly and efficient and the food is excellent. Always worth trying the specials as they are always good. Highly recommended.

I visited Rustico's with a client mid week. The restaurant was extremely busy which is always a good sign. The food was to a high standard & the waitress serving our table was attentive & knowledgeable about the food. My only complaint was that we couldn't get a cheese board as the chefs had all left & they couldn't get... More

We were a party of 10 and were seated on the ground floor. It was as the name implies, Rustic. It felt like we were in a back street restaurant in Rome. The service was attentive and pleasant and the selection of food was broad without being too much. The quality of food was excellent too.

Food 10/10 Staff 10/10 Manager 10/10 Best place in Aberdeen. Visited multiple times and every time I am absolutely thrown with the hospitality of the waiters and the taste of the food. I have no words to describe this place - it is a "must go" for anybody's list.
