Walked in about five on a Friday night. The restaurant was half full. Waited about ten minutes until the girl came by and told us it would be a ten to fifteen minute wait. Really? This so many empty tables ? Got no credit for time served waiting for her so we left. Go somewhere else.

My wife and I have just moved to Winchester, CA and we have decided to hit every restaurant we can between our new home and Temecula. Date night, which is every Friday night, seemed to be the logical choice of days, and so it has begun. Rustico's was our 3rd date night adventure and we were not disappointed. From the... More

We travel across town to eat here. Their pizza is really good. The menu has something for everyone and everything is good. We've also attended group gatherings here and their food for a large group has always been very very good. Highly recommend this place for a really good lunch or dinner.

It was fantastic!. The Mediterranean Quesedillia, Calamari and Ahi Tuna was incredible. The portions were gracious, and paired with their wine, fun was had by all.... More

We stopped for a light lunch --- splitting a caprese sandwich with salad. It was more than enough after devouring a nice warm small loaf of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Our waitress was delightful, helpful, told us about the area. It was Christmas eve day and not a lot of people in the restaurant at that time.
