Delicious pizza, with efficient and friendly service. Reasonably priced, authentic, great pastries for dessert, would go again and highly recommend.

What a treat, this little gem of an Italian restaurant in Bexhill on Sea.
The food was delicious and the portions were ample. We all enjoyed the ambiance and the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble. Altogether a great dining experience and we will certainly come back again.
Thank you

The food (pizza) could have been better. The service (as always) is laughably bad. On all the times I have been there (3/4 in all) - the staff are obvioulsy untrained-- their English is very bad too? They will ask what you want to drink--wander off - come back- never ask what you want to eat at all (on all three times)...Most times it took ages to get served and for the food to arrive and its not like they were rushed off their feet. Some of the other reviewers must have gone to a parallell restuarant in another universe!
Needs to pull its socks up big time!

Hi Jim, thanks for your review which was a clear representation of what we are! My only question is how it is possible that took you 3 visit to realised that, when other realised at the first visit? I think we have some room for improvement! Yes, we may have unexperienced and untrained staff, and yes, the English of some is not perfect but Rustico sometimes is a combination of all the imperfections which are perfect for others. Rustico has been designed to offer an unpretentious experience in a genuine environment, home cooking food, fresh daily specials and we hand craft the only real Neapolitan Pizza in the area, like at home in Napoli! We don't claim to be an Italian Restaurant but a Neapolitan Street Food eatery with its own combinations of service and self service, and, we are definitely not for everyone! Thanks and next time you are in I'll buy you a coffee! ;) Arrivederci Claudio...possibly your server! ;)

This is probably my favourite little hideaway in Hastings! Great fresh food and lovely flavours, ambience is lovely and quiet. Good service, great food and drink.
