We are proud to breathe new life back into the oldest Italian restaurant in Doncaster – formerlly known as Villa Romanas & before that Carlo's. Our aim is to deliver quality, affordable Mediterranean cuisine with a contemporary twist – all served in a unique & relaxed environment.

Customer satisfaction is paramount & we endeavour to provide excellence in all areas. Our chefs are dedicated to preparing the best possible, locally sourced ingredients, to create high quality meals fresh to order. We are also happy to cater for special diets; dairy free, vegetarian & gluten free dishes are available on request.

La Rustica is located on Nether Hall Road in Doncaster town centre – originally Carlo’s which opened in 1979! The single story frontage is deceptive – with a split level bar & lounge entrance, where customers can relax with a drink. The downstairs dining area is perfect for any occasion – comprised of an incredible spacious rustic brick cellar – providing our customers with a unique & authentic dining experience.

exciting news

We have signed up to the Government initiative "EAT OUT TO HELP OUT" – available at our restaurant from 3rd August until 31st August 2020.

This exciting news means that on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each week we can offer you 50% discount on food (or non-alcoholic drinks) to eat or drink in (up to a maximum of £10 discount per diner). There is no limit to the amount of times you can use this scheme.

There has never been a better time to treat your family, have a date night or just have a get together with friends and family (in a Covid19- friendly way of course – all the steps we have taken to keep everyone safe still stand).

Unfortunately takeaways are not included in this promotion.

We hope to see you soon!
