“Call Ahead” Policy

For larger parties of 5 or more, Rustica will reserve a table for you, Sunday thru Thursday, between the hours of 5pm and 6:30 pm. Simply call ahead and we will “pre-book” a table for you on the day that you are requesting.

Due to the small size of Rustica, it is not practical for us to handle reservations or “pre-bookings” after 6:30 pm Sunday thru Thursday or at any time on Friday and Saturday. However, we do have a “call ahead” policy which will help minimize your wait, if any. Our “call ahead” policy is explained below:

  • Please call ANYTIME on the same day you wish to dine at Rustica by calling 492-0247.  Simply provide us your desired dining time, # of guests in your party, your last name, and your phone number.
  • Your name will be immediately placed on our “call ahead waiting list".
  • By calling in advance, your name will continue to move up the “call ahead waiting list" prior to your arrival thus mitigating your wait, if any, for a table.
  • When you get to Rustica you will be given seating priority over those who have either called in after you did or those that “walk in” without calling ahead first.  If there is going to be a wait before you can be seated, we will do our very best to estimate this waiting time for you when you arrive at Rustica. 
  • If there is a wait for your table, we will give you the option of waiting at our wine bar or we will take your cell phone number and call you when your your table is ready if you wish to wait elsewhere, or if our bar is full.
  • Large parties are limited to 8 guests on Friday and Saturday. 

While this policy does not guarantee you a table at a specific time, or eliminate any potential wait, it does generally help enormously with the length of any such wait. Please understand that each night is unique, and while we will try our very best to estimate any potential waiting times, we can't always be 100% accurate even though we try!  Our “call ahead” policy is in place because we value your business and want to make dining at Rustica an attractive option.

Thank you!
