Restaurant description

A vintage little boutique restaurant right in the heart of London's West End, Rustiko Soho serves up authentic Italian recipes and cocktails. This intimate eatery boasts a candlelit interior filled with cosy little nooks, while outside there is seating on the pavement when the weather allows, for a true Mediterranean feel.

Alongside a list of moreish Italian-style tapas, the Rustiko Soho menu is filled with timeless, much-loved classics. Share rustic meat and cheese boards, tuck into a crisp pizza topped with artisan ingredients, prawn and asparagus pasta, and whole squid with chilli & chorizo.

Classic sweet treats like tiramisu and cannoli feature on the dessert menu at Rustiko in Soho, while up at the bar there are classic cocktails mixed up with flair, as well as Italian wines and beers from around Europe.

A true taste of intimate Italian dining in central London, Rustiko Soho is a stone's throw from the Prince Edward and Palace theatres, and 6 minutes' walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    The location was absolutely spot on as we were going to the theatre. The service was quick and the food lovely. We ate off the pre-theatre menu and the food was good value for money. Would eat here again.

    The food arrived quickly and my spaghetti was delicious and my bf really enjoyed his ravioli. We would definitely go back to this restaurant for a pre-show dinner.

    Not a good experience The toilets are down a rickety spiral staircase leading to a very dark area downstairs Unfortunately I tripped coming out of the toilet and banged my arm I told the management who agreed that the lack of light down there is a problem The food was mediocre. We won’t be back! Not even a free glass of wine to compensate for the fall!

    We booked Rustiko Soho at 5.30 on a Saturday evening with the intention of using the pre-theatre set menu. The restaurant was very busy and our table downstairs was a little cramped for two tall adults, but we would have been happy with it. However, the front of house man said that, if we happy to finish by 7.00, he could move us to a better table upstairs. We were more than happy with this, because we wanted to be away by 7.00 anyway. Our table upstairs was much more spacious, the room was much quieter and the whole experience was much better. Service was excellent, the food was excellent - fresh and well-cooked and not obviously pre-prepared or mass-produced - and it was excellent. Three courses for two, with a bottle of sparkling water and a glass of red wine each for slightly less than £50, right in the middle of buzzing Soho! We would definitely recommend Rustiko Soho.

    We had an early supper here before a theatre visit and chose several small plates. All of the food was good and also good value for money. Quite small cosy restaurant with friendly service.
