Great Place for Date Night

Okay, so it's not really Menifee, but my husband and I are in love with the restaraunt Rustico on Winchester just north of Murrieta Hot Springs. We happened upon the place on a trip to the Lowes on Winchester and decided to take some visiting friends there for dinner. To our surprise the service was as excellent as the food! We've taken our families there - who, being from San Diego were worried we wouldn't ever be able to eat at any place that wasn't a chain - and they loved it. The gnocchi is out of this world! And I loved their Chicken Vodka - a nice spicy taste. They've got a great wine list and wonderful beers on tap.

The place is never too busy that you have to wait, although they do recommend reservations for groups more than 5.

It's such a lovely place for date night or family night! (I hear the kids macaroni and cheese is great, too).

  1. Hi I found another website that this Lady was starting and it is called I dont know if there is any link between this one and that one but it is more like a yellow pages that is focused also on the community. Good luck to all of you Menifee is a great place to live.

  2. This is the best commercial I've ever read! Perhaps I'll actually try this place come back and provide an unbiased customer critique :)

  3. My husband and I have no affiliation with the place, honestly! We love to go out to eat and were happy to have found it!

  4. My family abosolutley loves this place. I am unbiased as I have never been there ( I am usually stuck at work!) But my mother-in-law whos is very reliable source when it comes to retaurant reccomendations raves over this one!

  5. I recently went to eat at Rustico, and I do have to say it was really good. It is a very nice family owned restaurant. I hear they want to open one here in Menifee. It is getting popular, so be prepared to wait.
