This place is one of mine and my finances favorite date night spots. Amazing authentic pastas and desserts. Not good for large groups though. The restaurant is small. We ranted and raved about this place to my finances family and when we took them the...More

My family went here on Mother's and since they don't take reservations, we arrived at 4:30 p.m. in order to be ready for the 5 o'clock opening. There was already a line there of four other families-- a testament to their good reputation. We all...More

La Rustica has been around a long time and it shows. This is more in the classic American-Italian style. The quality is good and the portions are large. The service is very attentive. I had the Penne Puttanesca which was good. Desert was a classic...More

After reading several good reviews we decided to check out this place... and it was fantastic! Every dish exceeded our expectations, even their own (secret) salad dressing was exceptional (too bad they can't sell it). Small beer selection, but appropriately two very good Italian imports...More

The food is very very good as is the wine list. My biggest complaint is that, if you are early, there is a dinky little bar and no one there to help you. Not a great start to a very nice meal

This quaint restaurant is situated on a corner near the beach. There was a short wait so we went to, "the bar" a tiny room behind the kitchen to have a drink. The bartender came by every 15 minutes to take orders - a funny...More

This is a very small venue with tables close together. Food is fresh made, and the menu offers the usual Italian dishes with specials every night. The warm "garlicky" bread sticks are addictive. Wine is offered by the glass, or you can opt for several...More

We have dined there three times in the last two years. Very different meals and all of them great. (Try the lamb) Good service and good coaching on the wine selection.

What a WONDERFUL idea! I do not know if they have gift certificates. Try callling the restaurant as suggested above. Good luck getting a gift certificate!

I am 16 and am interested in working at a restaurant. La Rustica is a fancy one and I was wondering if they would hire a 16 year old, or if that is too young.

WOW! I am sorry that I did not see this question sooner. I hope you went to the restaurant and asked if they hire an interested person of your age. Many times workers begin by working in the kitchen doing dishes which is a... More
