Great authentic homemade Italian food. The homemade marinara is wonderful. They also offer gluten free pasta and most of their sauces are gluten free.

My husband and two teenage sons ate here last night. One son really enjoyed the lasagna. Husband and other son had a shrimp tortellini they liked a lot-- thought portions could have been a little larger, but tasty. I had spinach artichoke pappardelle that was awesome. Great, friendly service also.

Excellent Italian fare right next to Universtiy of Notre Dame! The Rustica was fabulous as well as the Bruschetta appetizer. Service was friendly, they took a reservation in advance and parking was readily available. The only downside is that it's loud (echo-like) so if anyone in your group is older (i.e. hard of hearing) this would be a challenge for... More

I wanted to try this restaurant after seeing commercials on TV boasting a new menu. I tried the spaghetti carbonara and my friend had the lasagna and another got the lemon chicken.

We got the Ribeye Steak and the Chicken Marsala, and they were both excellent! Even though they had to feed almost 50 of us nearly-simultaneously, the staff did a wonderful job of cooking and delivering the food! The steak was tender and flavorful, and the chicken was tasty and moist. Because it was an event, I was surprised at the... More
