“Make sure to go with a big appetite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Rubino's is in a delightful and charming setting. The restaurant is small and everyone receives personal attention from the friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable staff.
There is a wide range of interesting and delicious food, beautifully cooked and well presented. With very ample portions. The prices are very reasonable too.

Fully recommended

“Good varied menu - awesome dessert”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2014

No menus here - the waitress takes you through each of the menu items which are listed on a board. We had the fried goats cheese for starters which was nice, but perhaps could have had a better crumb to cheese ratio. For main I had the rabbit, which was extra tasty and eaten by hand. My wife had the penne with Maltese sausage which was tasty but perhaps a little dry. The star of the show however was the cassata Siciliana which was sensational. It's the first time I've had it but will definitely be searching it out form now on. The owner was super friendly and provided great service throughout the night.

“Well kept little secret”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Went for lunch. Would never have come across this place if it wasn't for Tripadvisor. Very small (10 tables), with very nice ambience. Menu is a board on the wall, and everyting is simple and nicely prepared. Mains are app EUR 20, starters around 10 and desserts 5. Very nice wine list with many good, affordable wines.
