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.

Undoubtedly great pizzas if thats what you want, but if you also want an Italian experience forget it. I would describe this place as an English restaurant that serves really good pizzas.More

Hi Graham, in no way do we or have we ever professed to give our guests an 'Italian experience'. Which I'm not entirely sure is anyway? We are an local pizzeria based in a North Nottinghamshire village. What we do is serve Neapolitan style 'really...More

Where do I start.., as soon as we walked in we were amazed by how big the place was and the authenticity of the place! It’s absolutely stunning. We were treated warmly by Ryan one of the chefs and shown to a cosy booth. The...whole team are amazing, very friendly and professional and nothing was too much trouble. I took my autistic son with me and they were wonderful with him listening to his feedback. The meatballs for a starter were an instant hit and very tasty . The pizzas (a vegan one and a chefs special), were also amazing. Quick service, the food arrived hot and beautifully presented. A big plus for myself was the fact that all the wines were labelled to show if they were suitable for vegetarians/vegans which many restaurants don’t do! The ambiance makes you feel you are in an Italian restaurant. The owner of the restaurant even stopped to say hello and she was lovely and genuine along with the head chef and manager. We decided to take two pizzas home with us and we were impressed by the quality after warming them through at home . We will definitely be back to this absolute gem and hope to try dining in the courtyard next time.More

What an amazing little spot of a pizzeria, first time trying this place after seeing it on Facebook on a Saturday evening. I can’t give my hat off enough to how polite the staff were from the moment we walked in to when we paid...our bill. As for the food I have never tasted a pizza as delicious as these, we eat out a lot at restaurants and nothing tops these! We will be back 100% we’ve already rebooked. The only thing I would say is we wasn’t aware that the dips were an extra cost, we asked for some mayonnaise (2 pots) and when the bill came we was charged £1 a pot, I do think sauces should be free as they are at all the restaurants I go to.More

Amazing 2 and 3 course lunch menu and the pizza meatball sandwich (can’t remember Italian name - sorry) was absolutely delicious. Soft drinks this...time but wine and cocktails are always exquisite.

Hands down, the best pizza you’ll ever have. So much so, that whenever you go out for dinner anywhere else, you’ll refuse to have pizza because nowhere else compares to The Rustic Crust. It’s incredibly priced, the drinks are amazing and the desserts are to...die for. Make sure you book in advance though as tables book up quickly.More

I am pleased to have been able to be a pizza stalker since before the restaurant opened. I am glad to see the staff have been very well trained. For those who haven't been before the ambiance is rustic yet cozy, the service is attentive,...and the attention to detail in every aspect of the pizza-making process is evident. This pizzeria's commitment to using proper 00 flour truly sets it apart, making it a must-visit for any pizza enthusiast seeking a top-tier culinary experience. Highly recommended!More

I really do enjoy eating here and have been many times. My experience is that the staff are always very helpful and we have been looked after well. The restaurant is very clean, amazing decor and atmosphere. The food is ALWAYS top quality and incredibly...tasty. Drinks are just as good with lots of choice for both alcoholic drinks and soft drinks. Lots of very close by parking on side streets, also the restaurant is good for accessibility and on one level.More

What a find! This Italian is the best place for food and a must if you are visiting in and around Farnsfield. We booked a table with friends on a Sunday lunch. The atmosphere as you walk in is friendly and welcoming. The pizza is...to die for and the desserts are not to be missed. I got waaay too excited about the food that I didn’t take any photos apart from the cannoli. staff are super friendly and the food was delivered piping hot and without too much of a wait. I normally always have some constructive criticism when having a meal but I cannot fault this place. I’ll defo be returning with more friends and family to share the love about this place.More

The rustic crust has such delicious food, refreshing drinks, attentive staff and passionate owners that I have had my birthday meal here 3 years in a row. The overall atmosphere in the pizzeria is so inviting and friendly that I get so excited every time...we make a booking. This is advisable as they’re often booked up quickly especially if you want to secure a time. The pizza is some of the best I’ve ever eaten. All made fresh to order from the kitchen which you can see from the restaurant, a lovely touch, many topping options for that touch of preference. Starters and specials that are so yummy too. I can turn into a meal of many courses very quickly! Always great to see lots of people visit including families and children and they’re made to feel just as valued and special as the adults. The tiramisu needs its own special part of the review, quite simply I can only describe it as SENSATIONAL! It’s full of flavour and indulgent but remains light and creamy from the first to the last spoonful. See picture :) Can’t wait to go again soon and I hope others will give it a try for the first time or a repeat visitor.More
