Tasty pizza, but very strange to order everything on your phone rather that interact with a real waiter. Outside space is very pleasant; inside the restaurant was too loud to have a conversation.

Always good food, attentive service, friendly ambiance. A lot of appealing eateries in the neighborhood, but this ends up being the favorite for family get-togethers.

They did their homework when it comes to pandemic preparedness- spaced outdoor seating, contactless ordering, great food and customer service.

The food was amazing! It was our first time to Rustico and we loved it. The ordering on the app was super easy and the staff were super helpful and attentive (when requested on app - Covid safety). Spacing was great. Wonderful outdoor space as well.

Ordering through the website was very inconvenient. Hopefully this is temporary and they will eventually be able to hire servers. Orders were lost so simple entrees were delayed by 30 min. Expectation to tip normally is unreasonable.

Haven't been to Rustico since last March but we went on Sunday evening. The food was as good as always, but I was shocked that it is still using that stupid app to order food. I am used to using my cellphone to look at the menu, but to have to use it to order and pay for food is really annoying.

I won't be going back until they have in person servers.

Rustico has a great outdoor space, which is especially good during COVID times! Not so good is that their cocktail menu right now is very limited; they pre-mix the cocktails ahead of time, so you can't even customize the drinks they do offer. But their serving sizes are good and the food is very yummy!

Seated promptly but no one explained you had to submit your order online, so sat waiting 20-30 minutes for a server that wasn’t coming. All food came out at once even though appetizers were ordered. Most food was very good, grilled cheese sandwich was disappointing.

Water provided in a growler, but not nearly enough for one pour for the group, no one came back to check on the table, so difficult to get more.

Lightning in bar coolers very distracting

Overall we had a good time because of the group dining together, nothing to do with the restaurant.

Would recommend take out only.

Previously visited this place before COVID - enjoyed very much.
Post-COVID, they changed their business model. They force you to QR the menu - which is okay, I guess - but there are no servers to take your order. They politely (but firmly) push you to order through your smartphone, and their system closes out your tab each and every time you order anything.
That system thoughtfully automatically adds a 20% gratuity - and makes it difficult to adjust it. If I wanted Shoney's salad bar, or an impersonal experience, I can get it for much less cost. It may as well be a "pick up your own order at the bar" type of delivery system - there were workers on the floor but they weren't doing much.

Bottom Line: The food is still good (but not as good as I remember it). I definitely won't be back until they rethink their processes, because the ordering (and paying) experience was absolutely terrible.

All ordering is through your phone. You can't get a custom cocktail. The servers only bring your food and do not check on you. It felt like McDonalds.

You’re not able to order any drink you please. You have to order everything through your phone, choosing from few beers, few wines (only by the glass) and pre-made cocktails. I understand this is all because of COVID precautions, just not the dining experience I was expecting. We’ll definitely be back after things get beck to “normal”, but for now, Rustico is a better takeout place rather than dining-in.

Was a bit disappointed in the experience.
We were seated outside which was important to us but then we were left there as we’re supposed to use the QR code to do all ordering and payment. I wanted to get another beer but having to log on again and order it via the QR code, I passed.

From our observation, indoor seating had a more traditional dining experience with wait staff attending to the table.
Given the arrangement, I’d rather order takeout (food was good) or go elsewhere for a more enjoyable dining experience.

Service: So this resturant is basically a “to go” format that lets you eat in. You order and pay from the QR code menu and a runner drops it off ONLY AFTER YOU PUT YOU MASK ON every time they come to the table...yes they wait until you do. Rest assured they are not coming to see how you are enjoying your food or that they have any form of communication. It’s kind of like having Uber Eats bring your food at a resturant doing multiple orders (unless you drink one drink) except more annoying and tipping out each time. PS hostess was very nice and personable!!!

Food: Started with the tomato basil soup, it would have been delicious were it not for the massive amount of salt. For entree I had the spaghetti and meatballs. Again the meal would have been great but they dumped so much salt I could barely finish.

Positives: great date spot, the patio is nice, they have outdoor heaters and nice table layout, signature cocktails were well made

Won’t go back

I've been to Rustico a few times over the years while visiting friends in the area, the brunch is always our go-to. With Covid there are restrictions on dining, so for the time being you order and pay from your phone at the table, and then the servers will bring items out as they're ready. The beer list was significantly shorter than usual, as was the brunch menu, but the food was still delicious.

We walked up to the hostess stand and there were signs saying to speak to the hostess or check in using open table. There wasn’t a hostess around so we used open table. A waiter walked by and he offered to seat us around the side but because it was raining we told him we’d prefer to wait for a covered table. We sat in our car waiting. Another guy walked up as we sat in the car and we saw them seat his party at the recently vacated umbrella table. I walked up to the hostess and told him we had been waiting and they took our table. He shrugged and said sorry. Luckily another umbrella table opened.

The menu was entirely online. They wanted us to order through our phones on their website. Of course the website crashed and no one could order. My husband went up to inform the hostess of the issue and they all acted like we were the inconvenience and informed us that now it would take a little longer as they were working on a skeleton crew.

Eventually someone came out to take our order. Food and drinks came out quickly and were delicious. We had to go find someone to close the check. We chose Rustico because that was our first date place four years ago. We wanted to support them through this tough time but they made it feel difficult.

We reserved through OpenTable because that was what the person who answered the phone recommended when we called. We called again and they said just to come in person. When we arrived, we were told the “app crashed” but we would be seated within 5 minutes. So essentially no reservation system even on a busy Friday night. The ambiance was great and we loved the outdoor seating. Drinks were good and food was okay. Pasta primavera seemed like something I could’ve easily made at home and my boyfriends NY strip was cooked well done when he asked for medium. We are hopeful that if we try their pizza next time we’ll be pleased! They are doing an excellent job with contactless dining during COVID.
