Walking into cucina rustica the decor is lovely and a brilliant atmosphere some parts more quiet and others louder a one size fits all the food tasted very nice and very generous portions could have done with friendlier staff but overall a good experience

We walked in without a reservation early Saturday night and managed to get a table, it was very busy. What a nice, almost old school atmosphere, great staff and the food and wine were both excellent. Make sure you book well in advance though....

Was there with my girlfriend, as we were celebrating her birthday. There is a lots of carparks near restaurant. We used one on Lionel Street, which is just 400ft away. Place itself is great we had a table near the window and fireplace. Lights and music makes really romantic atmosphere in that corner. But there is also bright zone perfect... More

This restaurant was recommended to me as a possible alternative to the Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant in Birmingham. As Gold Card Members we have been going to Jamie's Italian for the 18 months, but I doubt that I will ever go there again after visiting this restaurant. Simply put this restaurant is in a different league, the food, the ambience... More

Second time and still good Italian food and helpful staff. This time music wasn't so loud, so 5 from 5. :-)

This is a charming restaurant with good quality food, good service, good wine list and a lovely atmosphere, definitely my favourite restaurant in the Jewellery Quarter and well worth a visit - a nice venue in the summer to sit outside with a Pinot Grigio and watch the world go by.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and it certainly won't be our last - we were recommend to go here after doing a bit of business in the jewellery quarter and we were not disappointed. Although we hadn't booked we were shown to a very nice table close to the window and presented with the very extensive menu... More
