I grew up in NY, ate at many wonderful restaurants in Little Italy, traveled to Italy, loved everything I ate, moved to GA, found many excellent Italian restaurants. I have a place up here, everyone raved about this restaurant, waited 1 hour 45 minutes, and it was so so at best.

Superb food. We had a party of 6 and everyone raved about their choice. Very reasonable prices, very friendly and efficient wait staff. Cozy environment, small rooms. Only downside is they don't seem to have much if any accommodations for a party of 6. We were at a table really for 4 and were fairly crowded. Services sizes are generous.

Wonderful Italian restaurant near Blue Ridge. Food is fantastic and the service is great. Hard to believe there is a restaurant of this caliber in north Georgia. If you are looking for a great restaurant with fantastic food and decent prices then you must try Cucina Rustica.

Nice Italian restaurant in such a rural setting. We were two couples and everyone enjoyed their meals. I would recommend to others.

This is my 4th or 5th time eating here and it never disappoints. The staff is always great and the food is always delicious. The foccacia bread is wonderful and baked fresh. I always order the Eggplant Rollatini. The eggplant is super thin and unlike anywhere else I've tried. I also always get the tiramisu. I have tried tiramisu at... More

I have been wanting to try this restaurant for some time now. At first I was concerned if we were properly dressed as we were wearing shorts, but the hostess said no problem come right in. Cozy interior. We ordered the penne a la vodka and the ricotta and spinach crepe. The star here was the penne a la vodka.... More

The whole meal from start to finish was simply great! We started with clam appetizer and Italian wine. The sauce the clams were in was just delectable, we even used the bread to dab the sauce to enjoy it more! The house salad is fresh and crunchy and the dressing was light and tasty, the lasagna was full of meat... More

Got a chance to go back to Cusina Rustica over Labor Day weekend. Once again, it was great!! I had the mushroom ravioli... But this trip was highlighted by our server Christie... She was fantastic!! Ate too much (again) for dessert, will have to make that a priority next time!

We were hoping for a nice Italian Diner out , when we pulled up we had high hopes judging from the reviews and the lovely setting . We were greeted by the hostess who seemed somewhat indifferent . The restaurant is nice on the inside with simple decor. Our server was very nice and told us the nightly special ,... More
