A nice restaurant with a pleasant atmosphere. The food was delicious and the staff friendly. In my opinion the best pizzas in Cape Town. Thank you.

I ignored the reviews as some we extremely good and others extremely bad. Maybe this is a sign that things can go either way.
Firstly the seating was uncomfortable, the bench is very low and our extremely tall people struggled with the table height, after the manager said he would try make a plan, we never saw him again, we had to ask for cushions over and over which we never got.
Service was not great. Steaks were average, and the fish that should have been medallions was not, just a piece of fish with chips instead of veg!
Billing was incorrect, we were charged for one extra meal.
Corkage is unreasonable, R100 if they don't have the wine, R200 if the do have the wine. However the wine is fairly reasonable.
Too many great restaurants in CPT to return, sorry. Very average.

What a Joke!! There are so many good Restaurants in CT, Don't ever go to Rustica.
The Waitress was remedial, the table wasn't set, dirty serviettes, she got a 3 part order wrong, the Manager was no where to be found - not surprised !!

I absolutely love this little restaurant. Amazing food and amazing service -- and so reasonably priced!


Definitely one of my favorite restaurants in Cape Town.

Arrived and was greeted by a friendly hostess, the waitress was also friendly, but service was bad and slow, my drink had bugs inside which was sent back twice before corrected, and was then served in a glass with lip prints on the rim. Asked for olive oil and balsamic vinegar, the olive oil was empty and we were told thereafter they are all out. The food was tasty but won't go again.
