We made reservations at La Rustica for a Friday evening. We were promptly greeted and lead to our waiting table in a nice quiet corner.
Our server allowed us time to glance over the drink menus and promptly came over once we were ready to order. Following the drinks, came a fresh order of bread with oil & vinegar to dip (yum, yum!!)
My boyfriend ordered the procuitto wrapped cantaloupe to start(honestly did not appeal to me... nor did it to him after the first bite! Weird combination!!)
For the main, I ordered 'La Homard' (split lobster tails with grilled veggies & smoked salmon ravioli). The lobster was slightly over done, the veggies perfect and the smoked salmon ravioli was not good. I had one bite & I was done. I dont know what it was, but I could not eat the ravioli.
My boyfriend tried the 'Tricolore' which is 3 types of pasta in one dish. When the food arrived, it did not appear fresh at all. You can tell when something was plated immediately... this, definitely was not. He was not impressed.
Although the service was fantastic (we ended up each getting a complimentary shooter & 30% off both our meals & we have NO IDEA why... maybe we were talking louder than we thought about how disappointed we were???), it really doesn't matter when the food is mediocre. Needless to say, we were both quite disappointed and never plan to return.
