Rustico Bistro Italiano is a family-run affair. Inside is exposed brickwork, wooden beams and an open fireplace that work together to create a cosy, intimate feel. Sunny photos of Italy adorn the walls and photos of celebrities who have dined at Rustico reiterates just how popular this little slice of Italy is.

The menu has been carefully crafted and although small, big flavours can be found in the authentic dishes.

We could see the chefs hard at work preparing our dishes in the open kitchen and were soon presented with a beautiful platter of entrées that included bruschetta with Parmesan mousse, drizzled with honey and finished with a dusting of coffee powder. To begin, I chose grilled bruschetta topped with spicy and uniquely textured ‘nduja salami with a side salad. After much pondering, my partner chose stewed venison sausage with polenta and lentils. It was clear from the presentation and flavour of the dishes that the team are meticulous about quality.

Our mains triumphed. I chose lasagne nonna gianna with rich homemade sauce, ham and fontina cheese. My partner plumped for fettuccine rustico: fresh pasta with chicken breast in creamy mushroom sauce. Desserts really deserve your attention. I had vanilla and white chocolate cheesecake with chocolate sauce and toasted hazelnuts, and the homemade tiramisu couldn’t go amiss. Bon apetito.
