    The food was amazing! OMG flavour! 4 of us ate and 2 hours later we were still making comments about it. You will not be disappointed. Speed average however, we were told 30mins and it was closer to 50mins but after we ate there were no complaints.

    Deivery was spot on time... Serving sizes were large and the food itself was just beautiful, we tried 4 dishes and they were well above average... Stand outs were the vegetarian options which are usually so bland, but the pesto was unlike any other in Australia, just divine! Garlic pizza was really flavoursome... An all round fantastic experience...

    Thankyou so much to all the staff at La Rustica restaurant Surfers Paradise. We recently held a hens night dinner there. The customer service there was amazing. The meals were delicious and prompt considering it was a party for 18 people. Great value for money. We all enjoyed every minute of our dining experience. The staff went out of there way to ensure we all had an enjoyable and memorable night. Good communication prior to the evening ensured special requests to be fulfilled. Karaoke available later in the night was a great warm up for our night out. Great food, great staff, great atmosphere! Highly recommended to any type of get together. Many of us will visit again.

      This is a wonderful dining experience. My family has dietary needs and this was happily accepted by the warm & friendly staff & owners. Even on busy nights this was no issue to them. All food is made fresh & its all worth the wait & the cost. The setting is very warm, cosy & homely. Our children were well looked after food & entertainment wise, cirque de soleil on the TV and a magician some nights too. They play traditional music too. We had 2 dinners over 5 days. Vegetarians are very well looked after, be sure to try the cannelloni, moussaka & risotto. Garlic bread is all home made. Be sure to try this fantastic place. Service with a smile is great too!

      From Melbourne for a couple of days only at the Gold Coast - I found this little Gem of a Restaurant on the Internet, and on the strength of the previous comments took three friends along to check it out. Wow, were we impressed. Its small, its unpretentious and can be a little crowded…..but geez, if I would not be hitched already, I’d marry the chef. Even if he is a bloke. (And I am a dinky die square.) We all had different dishes, and everyone was absolutely delighted with the food. I am a Veal Schnitzel Fan, and liked my dish so much that I went back on my own next day for another just before my plane left for Melbourne. One friend said he could not remember ever eating a better tasting steak. The Garlic Prawns in cognac cream sauce…..(for starters) delicious. Even their Garlic Bread is three notches above the usual The service was outstanding. I knew it was a BYO, thought they also have a license. When I brazenly asked our waitress if there was a bottle shop nearby, young and very pretty Maria even came to the door with us and directed us to one of two. (“It’s a bit cheaper there.”) WHAT? I do appreciate good service with my meal. The food came promptly, in the right order and with a smile. Importantly, the smiles of the two ladies who looked after us always came over as genuine, rather than the so often somewhat “ bland professional mind-set” one encounters even in some up-market places. All in all; best eatery I had the pleasure to discover in a long time. Visiting the Gold Coast? Don’t miss this one. (March 2010)

      What a fantastic place!!!! We went out as a foursome (2 were on a blind date) and we all had so much fun!! The food was excellent(try the prawn shish - OMG) and we had a great time singing karaoke after dinner. Our hostess Barbara was attentive without being over the top and the size of the restaurant is just perfect - you would swear you were in a little Italian ristorante somewhere in old Italy. I shall be recommending you to everyone I know Many thanks for making my rare dining opportunity so terrific.

      We had a large group of adults & children (17 in all) & the restaurant coped with us all despite it being quite a small place. We had a good meal & enjoyed the experience.
