In the vibrant Jewellery Quarter, Cucina Rustica offers an elegant, high-end take on traditional Italian cuisine. Cosy caramel leather booths, modern artwork and a smooth oak bar make for an understated, intimate setting.

Spanning from trusty Italian classics to more modern chef’s signature dishes, the Cucina Rustica menu offers a diverse selection. Sample antipasti dishes like scallops with parsnip puree and saffron vinaigrette, hand-rolled vegetable lasagne with courgette mousse, or sesame-roasted rack of lamb with red cabbage.

Made using the restaurant’s very own freshly-kneaded dough, a range of pizza toppings includes spicy Italian sausage with fresh chilli, or creamy mascarpone with spinach and mushrooms. Dominated by Italian bottles, a prized wine list at Cucina Rustica in Birmingham showcases a mix of easy drinking and more luxurious bottles.

Enjoying glowing reports in various local publications, Cucina Rustica restaurant brings a fine dining twist to traditional Italian dishes. Birmingham Snow Hill Rail Station is an 8-minute walk away.

    Generally very good, we had a lovely evening, food was good, staff friendly, we were a table of four (3 adults & an 11 year old). Had drinks at the bar beforehand, and were looking to have some good food with wine (not the 11 year old!).
    BUT - glass of prosecco was warm not chilled, on telling them it got replaced but no apology. Portions were large - which is no bad thing - but advice that we could easily have shared a starter would have been welcome (especially as we had an 11 year old with us). We also had to wait for one of our main courses - all side dishes had been served up and it was 5 mins before final dish turned up - no apology. In fairness to the staff they were rushed of their feet as it was really busy, but we could see them hurrying up the kitchen so they knew the dish was late. A lot of food went to waste due to us over ordering side dishes (we ordered one each) so we felt advice on size of dishes should have been offered. Would have definitely given it 4 stars if it weren't for the above.
    Would recommend, and go back but order less!

    Lovely food, 3 of us had the duck tagliatelle which was excellent and the chicken and muscles also excellent. The occasion was a yearly re-union for ex workmates. The position of our table in the restaurant meant that we could chat away and it was quiet enough for us to hear each person around the table. The staff were attentive but not overly so to make us feel like we needed to leave when we had finished eating. Everyone had a lovely lunch experience.

    Four of us dined on a Saturday evening, fantastic food and attentive staff. The lamb shank was incredible meat fell off the bone. We all enjoyed what we had.
