Al Fresco Dining at Cucina Rustica
There’s no better way to take advantage of great weather than to dine al fresco. To us, Summer is all about enjoying delicious food and drink whilst soaking up the sun in a beautiful location. With one of Birmingham’s prettiest spots as our home, Cucina Rustica is the perfect restaurant for an al fresco lunch or dinner.
THE PERFECT SETTING
Located just off leafy St Paul’s Square in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, you’ll feel comfortably distant from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Rated amongst the top ten restaurants in St Paul’s Square on TripAdvisor, Cucina Rustica prides itself on offering fine Italian food. Our modern Italian restaurant combines authentic Italian food with a modern twist in an elegant and relaxed atmosphere. Our outdoor terrace area is the perfect place for al fresco dining all summer long. Day or night, we have the perfect spot for you.
After a long day in the office, a day of shopping and seeing the local Jewellery Quarter sights, or even just on your lunch break, you might want to unwind and sit outdoors soaking up the sun and leafy backdrop of St Paul’s Square. Al fresco drinking and dining at Cucina also makes for a lovely date or casual celebration. The Grade I listed Georgian St Paul’s Church, built in 1779, sits pretty in the background as you drink and dine on our splendid outdoor terrace. It’s a real haven!
Experience the true taste of summer with one of our classic Italian style cocktails. The orange is unmistakable, a vibrant colour, which lights up your toasts and adds joy to the moment. Our Prosecco-based Aperol Spritz is perfect for sipping in the sunshine whilst enjoying drinks with friends and family on our terrace.
Perhaps a bottle of light, fruity white or rose wine or even a bottle of bubbles is more suitable for your personal summer gatherings or tastes? Soak up the rays before enjoying a tasty al fresco meal with us, or head inside to dine after your drinks if you need a little break from the sun! Our extensive hand selected wine list is sure to have the perfect bottle to help you get into that summery glow of cheerfulness.
If you’re a beer lover, you might prefer a refreshing ice-cold draught pint of Peroni. A true Italian lager perfect for pre-dinner drinks, after-work drinks or a social get together outdoors.
SPECIAL LUNCH MENU
If you didn’t already know we have a new Summer Lunch Special Menu especially suited to al fresco dining. It’s perfect for grabbing a tasty bite to eat on your lunch break if you are short on time but still want to get in some essential sunning! For a lighter alternative on warmer days our menu offers smaller plates. Sit back and relax outdoors on our stunning terrace during those hot summer days – we don’t often get many so make the most of them! All our food is cooked with true Italian spirit and fresh ingredients – what could be better?
Our selection of Italian bruschettas combining tomato, salmon and taleggio with mixed salad are a perfect plate to share whilst enjoying summer drinks at lunch. Or give our tasty, freshly prepared Calamari a try as a quick bite at lunchtime. We also have some great salads that are ideal for summer, and, of course – pizza!
We look forward to welcoming you at Cucina Rustica this Summer.
