Create your Favorite Pasta Dish at RustiCucina
If you're looking for a taste of authentic Italian cuisine, look no further than RustiCucina. Named to reflect the merging of American and Sicilian cultures, this restaurant offers every guest a true farm-to-neighborhood experience.
The three partners, Nino Cusimano, Marco Provino, and Mario Liga, all came to San Diego from a small town in Sicily. With the inspiration of Vincenzo Lo Verso, they developed a concept to open an authentic Italian restaurant, featuring ambient lighting, a wealth of greenery, and elegant rustic décor.
At RustiCucina, you can craft your completely customizable pasta dish from a variety of pasta types and in-house sauces like wild boar sausage, carbonara, cacio, pesto, and even Grandma's Ragu! Plus, for an additional cost, you can add a variety of protein options.
But RustiCucina isn't just about pasta. The full menu also offers a variety of organic, locally sourced ingredients. From antipasti and homemade pasta to savory salads, soup of the day, and a dessert menu to die for, there's something for everyone. Be sure to try the Chef's Cheese Wheel Pasta, aged with 36-month parmesan cheese, for an authentic dish that will leave you planning your next visit back.
And don't miss out on the Date Night Special, available Monday through Thursday, which offers a wide variety of options for just $50 per couple. Complete your night out with a bottle of the house white or red wine for an extra $10!
Whether you're celebrating date night, a birthday, or just in need of some comfort food, RustiCucina is the perfect spot. Located off Park Blvd, this little taste of Italy is a must-visit.
