Found this restaurant on Trip Advisors. It came with high recommendation. We were not disappointed. I absolutely loved the lasagna. The staff was so courteous and friendly. They even helped me with my coat when we left. Classy place.

Our Innkeeper recommended Rustico and it didn't disappoint. We each had the cioppino and garden salad. The food was delicious. If I lived in the neighborhood I would be a regular.

Food is simple (and I mean that has deep compliment), perfectly prepared, and delicious. The inside is a little cramped but nicely casual. The staff is delightful and helpful. You can dress up or down. While there maybe many restaurants like this is Italy, what...More
