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.

    The restaurant was really busy. We were left waiting for a good half an hour with staff just ignoring us. When we finally got our food the bread with my starter was rock hard.. the chicken in my main was dried out... really disappointed with overall experience. We have been before & had a great meal.
    So very disappointed on this occasion.

    Disappointing visit, felt the food was rushed out to us - no time between courses. Ordered Steak cooked medium and it was well done.

    Lovely atmosphere and decent lighting.
    Not too noisy so we could talk and hear each other.
    Staff pleasant and attentive but not overbearing.
    The food was excellent being good quality and we'll cooked and presented.
    The drinks were not over priced for a city centre location either.
    Left very pleased.

    We had good seats next to the window, my girlfriend birthday, table was topped of with a rose, which she loved. romantic setting, candles and roses. nice bar, guy behind the bar was nice. lady in charge on the floor gave us decent table and was very friendly. staff were on point, staff actually seemed to enjoy there job, sounds stupid but in most places, staff are miserable these days, customer service isn't what it used to be. staff ticked all these boxes for us. I had a chicken apollo I think. number 1 on the pasta menu with tagliatelle and my partner had crab laguina I may have said those dishes wrong but we fully enjoyed them. beautiful dishes. chef cooks beautifully. starters she had sautée mushrooms? something like that lol. best mushrooms she tasted and she said the sauce went beautifully with the mushrooms. I had garlic bread and cheese to start. I'm a plain Jane so I always play it safe. beautiful place, beautiful staff beautiful atmosphere.
