Such a beautiful dining experience. All the senses are stimulated. You get a whiff of the most tastebud-tempting flavors as soon as you walk in.... undeniably Italian. Romantic ballads play in the background. Fesh flowers at every table. And the decor is cozy-rustic-charm with a dash of elegance. Feels like you stepped right out of Lake Worth and into Southern...

Me and my girlfriend went for dinner to Rustico Italiano and from the time we arrived there we had a very good impression. What a nice, well decorated place. We were greeted and escorted to our table. The server promptly arrived and gave us menus and he was very pleasant. Food was amazing! We shared a Burratta for appetizer and... More

The service was slow and inattentive for no reason. They weren't even busy that night. The food was overpriced and average. The worst part was that they brought us a much more expensive wine than what we ordered and charged us for it, claiming they were out of the other one. The proper procedure is to charge the price of... More

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The food is amazing. Nothing on the menu is bad. Daily specials are also very good.

I was looking forward to a visit to Rustico since my last visit last year. I'm happy to report everything is still perfect! ! The meal, service and total experience is 5 star all the way. Try the purses of pasta stuffed with pear and gorganzola in a rose sauce. They happily split this for the two of us. Fish... More

Nino has just returned from his month annual vacationing Capri, and the restaurant is open again. He left as Number One and returns as Number One. Believe me, and Nino, whose cooking and service is to be believed, this is still the Northern Italian restaurant in all of South Florida. The best veal dishes and pasta. Nice and al dente.

For the past year that we've lived in Lake Worth we've been meaning to try this restaurant. It was highly recommended by the man that owns the cigar store across the street. Well, we were certainly not disappointed. Nino, the owner greeted us when we arrived and showed us to the table of our choice - we had no reservations.... More

This is some place we had always wanted to try and the only complaint is that we waited so long to do it. The service was exemplary and the food put me in Italy. The stuffed calamari was so good, we had 3 orders! And the veal was better than anything I've ever had before. We will definitely be visiting... More

I have had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant several times. Each time the food has exceeded my expectations. The service is excellent and the owner quite personable. Everything on the menu is wonderfully authentic and delectable. I personally enjoy the appetizers the most as I like to have enough room to sample different selections from the menu. The... More
