About La Rustica

Opened in 1996 by Janie and chef Giulio Pellegrini, La Rustica is the culmination of over 45 years of crafting cuisine, relationships and love.

Janie and Giulio have been married for over 40 years and have been co-restaurateurs for as long. Hailing from Patrica, Italy, where he attended art school, Giulio emigrated to Michigan in 1965. He met his beautiful wife soon after and as a young family they began their careers rooted in Giuio's love for the regional Patricano cuisine and his passion for artistry, quality and hard work. Janie soon became a masterful baker. She bakes all of the desserts for the restaurant including her now legendary Tiramisu. Each spring, Janie's gardening talents come to life as the patio is reborn. Another summer of joy and good times ahead.

 As a team, they bring the very best quality ingredients to you, offer their passion for good food, good wine and great times shared with loved ones and welcome you as personal guests to their dining room.

"We wish to thank you West Seattle and greater Seattle for your continued patronage, and sharing your special moments with us! Bienvenuto e Grazie Mille"

-Janie and Giulio
