Enjoyed Finalamente Restaurant very much, very good. This place , Rustico we ate at yesterday was awful. Fast food at Wendys might be a better choice.
I’ve dined at Rustico a half dozen times since it opened 3 weeks ago. The food has been very good & plentiful & the service very attentive. Prices are reasonable for both food and wine. It’s atmosphere is warm & friendly. If you like Wendy’s more than this you should stick to fast food.
