Wedged into a corner near Nordstrom, Rustica has an open floor plan. The kitchen, the main dining room and the patio feel the same breeze that blows through Fashion Island's fountain-anchored courtyard outside. It is a casual place: Tables are bare wood, placemats are cut out from butcher paper, and right now, reservations are tight, even if most diners will order spaghetti and meatballs. Yes, you can get the dish anywhere, but you should ask for it here just the same.
