Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Sloppy food with only a passing resemblance to once proud Italian origins - Mamma Rustico must be turning in her grave. Fried aubergines drowned in passata does not a melanzane make, tiramisù is a ‘let down’ and coffees merely frothy water. Barely raises a smile,...like their service.More

The best gluten free pizza in Hastings, always absolutely delicious and tastes as good as the real thing. Such generous toppings and just as good taking away as eating in. Couldn't recommend this place more!

Had heard such good things about this place but came away a bit disappointed. Good pizza, awful side salad. Literally a bowl of soggy leaves from a salad bag with two slices of tasteless tomato and a tasteless dressing. It cost £2.95? There must be...a huge profit in that. My friend ordered a pasta dish that apparently contained sausages Which was very small and again a bit tasteless. When we walked in the server was far from friendly or welcoming but we ended up being served by somebody who was friendly and helpful. Drinks were great. Won’t be in a rush to return unfortunately. I hope this place isn’t getting complacent……More

Had a great pizza at this restaurant and drinks and staff were very nice. Not great lasagne but suspect we caught it on a bad day so will visit again.

I’ve been going here for years & it used to be really good. Tonight I waited 30 mins in an empty (one other table) restaurant and the pizza had 3 tiny anchovies and 4 capers on it. I handed it back & walked out. Such...a shame.More

First night in Hastings after 5-hour drive from Devon (Chagford) was made relaxingly special, thanks to the perfect pizza, wine and happy service. Kudos to Kezia and the Team. As local as local gets. Casual, welcoming ambience. Happy to return as time allows. A++

The Vegetariana pizza here is the best I've ever eaten, and the coffee is to die for too! Went here for the first time a couple of years ago and made a point to come back because the food was so good. Really friendly staff,...nice cozy restaurant with outdoor seating. Would highly recommend :)More

We went here for dinner on the off-chance and we were so happy we found this little gem! Food is authentic! Having been to Italy many times, rustico is true to it's meaning, pizzas are wonderful! The service in here was on point! We had...Jack who worked our table, he was attentive, very lovely young man sporting a very trendy mullet, he really made a top effort with drinks and service with a smile. Lovely to see someone who really cares about the customers needs! High recommend coming here for an authentic pizza and outstanding service! Thank you Jack and Rustico! We will be coming again very soon!More
