Food is quite good. Restaurant is nice. Service is good. Not the cheapest but convenient for many in the area. Great pizzas.

We moved to this Murrieta Area a few months ago from Louisville KY. My wife and I tried this place as it is a non chain restaurant, and that is a rare thing around here. We have been there 3 times and we have enjoyed it every time. One of there servers , James, recommend a good winery. I am... More

I came out here with my women's group for lunch after hearing so many rave reviews about the food. I ordered the eggplant parmigiana with great anticipation. It was a total disappointment---it was so bland. It was as if they forgot to season it so it was not enjoyable to eat but I had to since it cost $12.99. Definitely... More

My husband and I decided on an impromptu date night at Rustico's, which is near our home. We shared the mussels and clams for an appetizer, the Margherita pizza for dinner and the creme brûlée for dessert. The appetizer and pizza was delicious! I would not order the creme brûlée again as I could tell it was just from the... More

Consistently the best Italian cuisine in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Owners Francesco and Philippa are the heart of this restaurant! Always making you feel like a friend!

Well, this establishment had great reviews, I figured I was in the area why not give it a try. From the moment we walked in, I knew it wasn't a good sign. The place was nearly empty (maybe they were expected a rush later) but they immediately sat us right in front by the front door. The sun was going... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Murrieta/Temecula area. Love the fresh bread with oil and vinegar. Great food, service and atmosphere.

My wife and I each had a chicken breast sautéed in a white wine sauce with artichokes. Truly excellent! The restaurant is quite informal and family friendly. I hope to return soon and try something else on their menu.

Anna was a terrific server, totally on top of every detail, and super friendly. Her service is why I will return. The food was better than good, but didn't match the menu. The New Yorker pizza should come with many more meats on it...basically a meat lovers' pizza, but Rustico was either out of them or the kitchen doesn't know... More
