2 for 1 at RustiKo

Occupying what was a Cookhouse Joe, Rustiko is a new and upcoming wine bar serving fine Italian wines, cocktails and a range of Italian snacks and larger plates.

The venue is perfect for a quick bite to eat, a long leisurely meal, or even just a catch up and a drink when in the Compton Road area.

Throughout the early evenings RustiKo is buzzing with locals and boasts a friendly and vibrant atmosphere.

As the evening draws in, the venue takes on a more relaxing vibe, with a dimly lit, cosy area filled with leather Chesterfield sofas, small wooden tables and candles.

The restaurant interior is contemporary and stylish, with rusted ceiling panels casting the room in a bronze glow, while up the spiral staircase lies a brighter bar with more sofas and simple furnishing sturdy wood set against soft lighting.

Choose from dishes such as tomato and mozzarella on bread, sharing boards or larger plates including sliders and calamari.

Both the food & drink and surroundings are authentic of what one would expect in a traditional Italian bar therefore you’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the heart of Italy itself!

So what are you waiting for? Visit Rustiko for an authentic Italian experience!

    Came here with a friend for mid-week dinner. The 'trendy', industrial decor worked well in the space. Food was fine, though the starters did not represent good value for money. Staff were pleasant but the service was slightly erratic and when the bill was brought they had forgotten we had a Taste card. Would recommend, but stick to main courses/desserts only. "
