The tastes of Italy and Turkey mesh together into a Mediterranean melange at this warm and friendly family-owned restaurant in the heart of sunny Surfers Paradise. Opened in 1982, La Rustica maintains a rustic charm with its fresh home-style dinners that follow traditional family recipes. Owned by two Italians and a Turkish in-law, La Rustica brings a wealth of culinary options to the table, featuring pasta, pizza, veal, chicken, steak and seafood, as well as mezze and shish options. The desserts continue the fusion theme with homemade tiramisu sitting sweetly alongside fresh Turkish delight. Truly providing something for everyone, La Rustica also offers halal, kosher, coeliac-friendly, and vegetarian and vegan meals.
