Simply Amazing

Simply Amazing

This is my third visit to the restaurant, and once again, it was simply amazing. I would never dream of coming to Lake Worth without visiting. There is literally nothing I can criticize on. It has a great, casual atmosphere, the owner and staff are super professional (and nice), and the food is incomparable. It will blow you away!

Rustico Italiano is Always Great

Rustico Italiano is Always Great

We go to Rustico for most special occasions and when we are feeling the need to splurge on declicious food, wine and a romantic, relaxing atmosphere. This is not the place to go if you are in a hurry. Savoring every bite of the fresh, perfectly prepared food is one of the special things about this restaurant. We also enjoy Nino, the chef/owner who is always cheerful and accommodating and has a wonderful sense of humor. Don't forget to try one of the delicious desserts made in-house. We have been there about 25 times and are never disappointed.

Best Italian Restaurant Ever!

Best Italian Restaurant Ever!

I'm from Hoboken, NJ, just minutes away from New York City. There are plenty of delicious Italian restaurants, but there aren't any like this one. Rustico Italiano is by far the greatest Italian restaurant I've eaten at. The food is very well prepared and extremely flavorful. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. Overall a great place to have a nice Italian meal.

Fresh & Authentic Italian Cuisine

Fresh & Authentic Italian Cuisine

Rustico Italian was a great find that was close to our resort, The Omphoy. Our party of 5 were immediately greeted & seated by the owner, Nino. We were shown the fresh daily specials, which all looked delicious. Our meals were all outstanding and Nino's wine recommendations were spot on! The fresh homemade food is definitely worth the money. Our service throughout the evening was exceptional. If you are near Lake Worth area, this is a definite must for dining.

Palm Beach Post

Rustico Italiano combines two regions on one plate

"The bresaola is a dish you will only find in Northern Italy near the Swiss border. This is a traditional dish. It’s what Italians eat,” he explains, pointing to one side of the plate. Thin slices of imported Italian dry cured beef surround asparagus, arugula and asiago cheese, smothered in a light truffle cream sauce and spiced with black pepper."

Rustico Italiano: Best of Dining Italian

"If it's a homey little Italian restaurant you seek in Lake Worth, Rustico may just be the place. The food is downright excellent. Rustico delivers dinners better than mama made, unless mama was one heck of a chef."

Specials are blossom-ing all over at Lake Worth’s Rustico Italiano

"Love It. Great experience here. Restaurant was surprisingly empty for a place with such high reviews (granted, it was a Tues night). There weren't that many servers so it was a little hard to get their attention, but they were so nice, very thoughtful and friendly. Food was solid."

Richard Graulich, The Palm Beach Post
