Restaurant Review by Marc Charles --- Rockland Maine Rustica Cucina

I'll be nice........

In my opinion most restaurants are overpriced, over hyped, over valued and are ego driven, not customer driven.

By most I mean 80% of the restaurants I go to.

I took my wife to Rustica Cucina Italiana last Saturday night. It was ok...but a little pricey.

My wife had an appetizer, I had two glasses of wine,and  risotto.

My wife had creme brule.

The total bill with tip (20%) was $75. I think thats steep.

Granted, the setting is wonderful. The wait staff was nice. The waitress reached past me with a carafe of wine to fill my wine glass......but who cares......I'm from South Minneapolis.

Most  of the time when you order a glass of wine it comes in a new glass.....not someone reaching across you and dumping it into your glass with a carafe.


It's just a lot of money for a plate of rice and an appetizer.

Granted........two friends I mentioned this to disagreed.....they said its a reasonable price.

But I disagree.

Write it off as a trading loss :)
