Cucina Rustica – The Perfect Lunch Destination in Birmingham
Whether it’s a leisurely lunch date or a business meeting, Cucina Rustica, situated in the heart of St Pauls Square in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, is the perfect place to enjoy authentic Italian food at lunchtime. And on those glorious summer days, we have the option of dining al fresco from our Summer Lunch Special Menu with views of the leafy square and Cathedral in the distance.
BUSINESS MEETINGS AND CORPORATE LUNCHES
With so many local businesses in the area and a short walk away from the hustle and bustle of Birmingham’s City Centre, it is no wonder we are a top choice for business lunches. Our impressive restaurant is the perfect venue to discuss business over lunch with prospective clients. Of course, it’s vital that you make a good impression, and that means getting every detail right so leave the food, drinks and surroundings to us and relax. We can host anything from a small business meeting to larger corporate lunches.
SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND ROMANTIC LUNCHES
Or perhaps you are looking for a leisurely lunch with friends or family, celebrating a special occasion or looking for a romantic lunch after purchasing your engagement or wedding ring – you are in the perfect area of course with the Jewellery Quarter being home to so many independent jewellery shops. A glass of fizz is the perfect accompaniment for those special lunch dates in our romantic and elegant restaurant.
CASUAL LUNCH STOP
With so many galleries and museums on our doorstep (St Pauls Gallery, The Pen Museum, Museum of the Jewellery Quarter, RBSA Gallery, Coffin Works) you might be in the local area visiting one of the many Jewellery Quarter tourist attractions and looking for a light lunch stop. Salads are always a popular choice for lunch – especially in Spring/Summer. Our salads are far from boring ‘diet’ food. They’re full of flavour and texture, and finished with delicious Italian dressings. Try our Insalata Di Anatra – a crispy duck salad with pancetta, apple, rocket and balsamic glaze.
For something a little different but light and healthy, why not ask our waiters about our freshly cooked fish dishes – a staple in restaurants across Italy. Ask for our Special Menu where you’ll find a variety of fresh fish perfectly cooked by our head chef, daily! Pictured below is swordfish with Prosecco, mussels and lobster bisque from a previous Special Menu.
So, whatever you fancy for lunch and no matter what the occasion, we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy at Cucina Rustica, including dishes that are great for sharing!
