“Lovely food”
Reviewed 30 April 2014 via mobile

Welcoming, stylish restaurant with woodfired oven in a part of Swindon where serious sit-down eateries are decidedly thin on the ground. Dishes were piping hot and portion sizes very generous. Would recommend the wonderful deep fried mushrooms and spinach ravioli in particular. Given the quality, prices were really reasonable. Our one quibble would be that the service, although very friendly, was poorly organised. There was a lot of duplication, with 2 members of staff trying to take our food order, another supplying the black pepper/mozzarella, and 3 different staff asking us if we were happy with our food. Full marks for taste, value and atmosphere, but the management of waiting staff needs some fine-tuning.

“Amazing Pizza”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

My boyfriend and I visited Rustico on Saturday night and had a fantastic meal. Great service and fantastic real Italian food. Pizza was the best I have had in England. Would highly recommend visiting.

“Spaghetti Bolognese without the Bolognese :(”
Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

Came here for a birthday party Bolognese must have been scarce as I barely got a spoonful, emptied the pot but nowhere to be seen :( just Spaghetti in a Bolognese sauce and quiet bland at that.

“Best pizza in Swindon”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I haven't had the pleasure of eating in yet but have had several pizza deliveries. Never been disappointed they are simply delicious, like proper Italian pizza. Not grease or heavy just tasty.

“Good pizza, two hour wait”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

Pizza arrived two hours after ordering after ringing two times and being told it was on its way. Then manager called to say they'd just found the order.

Plus side: nice pizza, gave us vouchers due to lateness and manager was nice.
