Rustica Italia

Treetops Plaza Shopping Centre in Burleigh Waters has welcomed a brand-new pizza and pasta bar, Rustica Italia. The neighbourhood noshery dishes up a delightful dose of woodfired bites and homestyle charm. Rip into a steamy crisp-on-the-outside-fluffy-on-the-inside focaccia that’s fresh out of the oven before attempting the double-sided menu. There are seven different kinds of pasta with your choice of linguine, pappardelle or penne, alongside three different kinds of gnocchi, which are all made fresh onsite. When it comes to the pizza, the selections are separated by base colour, with options for both red and white. Traditional tastes are accounted for with the classics such as Margherita and pepperoni alongside some more innovative options such as braised beef cheek, caramelised onion, roasted red peppers and mozzarella. The mains span the land and sea with a signature whole woodfired fish that’s rubbed in a sea-salt crust.¬†Those with bambinos in tow will be pleased to know there’s a dedicated section for kids. Rustica Italia is fully licensed with a tantalising selection of drops from Australia, New Zealand and Italy, alongside Birra Moretti brews from Italy and Western Australia’s Little Creatures on tap. The cocktails present four signature sips including the Cosmocello (Ketel One, Cointreau, limoncello and cranberry) and Berry Club (blackberry gin, Dolin, Chambord, fresh berries, lemon and whites) alongside some¬†booze-free options including the Rustica Iced Tea with fresh peach, raspberry and mint. Rustica Italia also offers takeaway.
