COVID 19 Policy
As of Monday, October 25th, proof of vaccination status or negative Covid test will be required for anyone 12 or older wishing to dine indoors. If you are unable to provide proof, outdoor dining and take out are still available to all.
Masks are required anytime you are not seated at your table. Please remember to put your mask back on when walking through the restaurant to the restroom or when leaving.
Due to seating limitations, we ask that you keep your stay to under 90 minutes. This is especially true on the patio, which is the only space that we can accommodate guests without proof of vaccine. If there is a wait, you may be reminded of the time constraint. We want everyone to have an amazing time, but ask that you are respectful of other waiting guests and help us by staying within the allotted time period.
Thank you for your support,
~ La Rustica

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
