La Rustica is a gem in Seattle and the go-to Italian place for West Seattleites. Charming, romantic, and excellent food and wine. Can be a bit noisy and crowded on weekend nights. They don't take reservations, so be prepared to wait, especially in summer.

The cuisine is classic, not innovative. Dark seating indoors, nice patio on the side patio, can see the beach. Good lamb shank, salmon with pasta. Nice drinks, wine is decently priced. My Sicilian sister in law approved!

Everything was delicious. We had calamari, lamb shank, and pasta carbonara; would recommend all. Bread and salad were wonderful too. Definitely busy, we were told there would be a half hour wait (Friday night at 715) but they had a table ready for us in less than ten minutes. Highly recommend to anyone who appreciates good food.

We were there on a recommendation, for a special anniversary. We were told we could not make reservations, and to get there early for a seating. We arrived early and waited for them to open. As we went in, we mentioned why we were there. Because we were the first ones waiting, we expected a good table. We were lead to the back in a dark area, next to the bathroom! (No view).
The waitress was very helpful with decisions about food choices. We found that food was okay, but over priced. The restaurant is small, and the best thing about it is the view of the water....that is if you aren’t seated next to the bathroom!

'Definitely the best I've experienced so far! From the intimate seating to the attentiveness of the wait staff, the experience is great. As for the food, my Bronx-born Italian family members were knocked out...'need I say more?
