Italian
Fine Italian food in the very centre of Birmingham is Cucina Rustica's trademark, a comfortable, atmospheric Italian restaurant popular with both locals and tourists visiting this vibrant city. Although modern and slick in its execution, the choice of deep earthy colours and moody lighting, tactile materials such as wood and stone and the addition of characterful contemporary art and healthy, verdant plants give Cucina Rustica that slight traditional feel suggested by its name and a certain cosiness that gives it a home from home feel. Attention to detail is in every little touch here at Cucina Rustica, from the single rose placed on each table to the complementary olives produced on every guest's arrival. Equally, food is produced with great care, dishes traditionally Italian but done with flair and a certain amount of style, some unusual choices offered alongside classic favourites, all from the classic Italian cookbook and accompanied by a wide array of drinks.

    Lovely restaurant just out of the hustle and bustle of Birmingham centre. Only a 10minute walk from the arena which was convenient for our visit. The food was lovely and can’t fault any part of our visit

    Glad we booked as people were turned away. I can understand why. Nice to be in the quieter Jewellery Quarter for lovely food and great service Particularly love the frutte de mare pasta / ravioli that we had. Watch out though. Portions are large. Do you really need that dessert?

    Food and service was great. I did say it was a birthday when i booked but seems like the note was ignored. The bill was also wrong , extra items were added. Always check your bill before paying.

    Always a pleasure to visit Cucina Rustica - a warm welcome, great ambience and incredible food - offering very generous portions - although I`m not a big eater - but it always goes down well. Highly recommended always.

    My friends and I enjoyed the location and ambience of Cucina Rustica. Waitress took a little while longer than average to ask us for drinks order. They over charged and luckily we spotted the fault and they apologised. Pasta was under cooked as it wasn’t tender enough. Prices were good and staff were extremely polite. Potions were of great size. Very clean restaurant.

    The food and service was great. They brought the kids menu with crayola, so it was a good touch. It took too much time to get the first, but once they started serving food was really fast! I would recommend this place.

    The service was absolutely perfect. My friend joined me for dinner and we were able to chat without the pressure of giving out orders immediately. We both had mussels to start which were absolutely gorgeous. I followed with a roasted vegetable penne dish, which was incredibly tasty. My friend had a risotto and was very pleased with it. The amount of food was very generous which meant sadly we didn’t have room for dessert . Our evening here was thoroughly enjoyable and we can’t wait to come back 😊
