We dined here last night as a party of 18 and the food and service was impeccable. Wonderful atmosphere and the quality and variety of dishes on off was just exquisite. We don't live in Aberdeen but visit often and now we have found our 'go to' restaurant when we are there.

My partner and I love this restaurant and visit whenever we can. Food and servixe are always food. We were seated on the top floor this time which was much more spacious and open than other floors, I'd definitely ask to sit there if possible.

Before going to HMT we were looking for somewhere to eat that wasn't a "chain" (unfortunately Goulash and Cafe Boheme are closed on Monday). I decided I wanted a Caesar salad and Rustico was the first place that we found that had it on the menu. It was a good choice (the restaurant and the Caesar salad!) My wife and... More

This Italian owned restaurant is popular and busy. Great deals available at lunch times. All the food is freshly prepared and tastes delicious. The staff are very attentive.
