Ranked #3 of 713 Restaurants in Doncaster
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: £8 - £32
Description: We are proud to breathe new life back into the oldest Italian restaurant in Doncaster. Our aim is to deliver quality, affordable Mediterranean cuisine with a contemporary twist – all served in a unique & relaxed environment. ​ Customer satisfaction is paramount & we endeavour to provide excellence in all areas. Our chefs are dedicated to preparing the best possible, locally sourced ingredients, to create high quality meals fresh to order. We are also happy to cater for special diets; dairy free, vegetarian & gluten free dishes are available on request. ​ La Rustica is located on Nether Hall Road in Doncaster town centre – originally Carlo’s which opened in 1979! The single story frontage is deceptive – with a split level bar & lounge entrance, where customers can relax with a drink. The downstairs dining area is perfect for any occasion – comprised of an incredible spacious rustic brick cellar – providing our customers with a unique & authentic dining experience.

Visited La Rustica on Friday evening. We were given the warmest welcome from Maria. Wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to eat (so much choice on the menu), Maria was extremely knowledgeable about the dishes and gave a fantastic recommendation based on my preferences. She also gave a fabulous cocktail recommendation too! The food was delicious but Maria really did make our visit extra special - thank you Maria! Will look forward to visiting again soon!

This place never fails- we come here all the time and always have great food at reasonable prices. The downstairs is amazing, it is so rustic and has a great feel about the restaurant.

Eco is the best server we’ve ever had anywhere. Every time we come he makes us feel so special and welcome. He will go above and beyond for the customer which makes you want to return. I was with my girlfriend and he came over and put rose petals on the table, lit a candle and put a balloon on the table- a really nice touch.

La Rustica is our favourite Doncaster restaurant. The cellar has the perfect ambience and vibe for a meal with my wife, or a meal with the family. The menu is excellent with lots of options, we particularly enjoy the Pollo La Rustica, but have tried most things on the menu. Everything is delicious and of the highest quality. We are always warmly welcomed by Ecu, who is an amazing host and a special mention for Codruta, who works very hard and is extemely attentive. Thank you so much.
