Outstanding steak and all round great food. Very friendly staff and no problems with our young daughters finding something to eat. Make sure you try the garlic bread pizza and some turkish delight for free on the way out. BYO is handy with a BWS just up the road.

Small, busy and a little noisy at times. But the food was so good it was all forgotten. Pasta was simply delicious, and lamb dish superbly cooked. There is a lot of love in this food. Great little spot for a catch up and casual meal.

La Rustica offers small quaint dining experience, but the food is amazing. Pizzas on offer are delicious with the best pizza bases we've tasted made fresh daily on premises. I don't know what the recipe is, but it's delicious. The meal portions are plentiful, especially the pasta dishes. Both the Italian cuisine and Turkish cuisine is authentic and lives up... More

Three had pastas,... More

We went to this restaurant twice when we are in Gold Coast. Loved the service and food...Had ordered Risotto Zingarra and La Rustica pizza and the tastes are really good. Would definitely recommend and come back when in Gold Coast.

Good honest food. WE go to Surfers around half a dozen times a year on business & you get reasonably priced, full flavoured food. Most times I have the Spaghetti Marinara & my wife has the fish
