Thanks to the staff at Caffe Rustica for making our night with our of town guests nice. I forgot to make the reservations and they texted me to say they did not see our reservation but instead put us at the King's table... We had great drinks - Great Gin Drink!, great food - we all ate something difference and great service. They did not rush us and it was a pleasurable evening.
Thanks for providing great food and service to our out of town friends. I love going there for special occasions. Not in my budget for everynight but great restaurant!

I should have written a review after our first visit to Caffe Rustica because it was so fabulous!!!

From the minute we arrived there, it was a great experience!!! Nice bar~~relaxed atmostphere! We were seated in the larger dining room which is very nicely decorated and clean!!! We had ceasar salads to start~~~they were excellent and very fresh! Ceasar dressing was not bottled! Then for dinner we all (there were 6 of us) had the fish special which was halibut served over potatoes and spinch!!! WELL.....IT WAS THE BEST WE EVER HAD!!! The fish was flavorful and moist!! The entree portions were perfect! The service was also excellent!!

Everytime we visit Lake Placid we make this restaurant a must!!! They also have great pizzas!
Nicely priced too! If you like great food, portions & service you should give it a try!!

Food is great and the interior of the restaurant is lovely, but I hate the tables that look out on the parking lot of the shopping center. I try to avoid these. Good prices too.

Would return! Cioppino was fabulous, service top notch. A comfortable and casual place, fun menu. Only suggestion would be to use less goat cheese in the recipes. Other than that, Caffe Rustica gets an A.

Who knew that a small, tucked away restaurant next to Price Choppers would be so good! We had a reservation and initially they looked to seat us in the front dining room (without much atmosphere) but acquiesced when we asked to move into the nicer dining area. The specials were interesting and the wine list was decent. Will definitely return.
