Worth the wait

Excellent pizza (and other dishes) in the main square, with its own small terrace as well as ample seating inside. It was a very busy lunch service on a wet afternoon, so service was a bit slow but the food was well worth the wait.

I've read several of the reviews... We had lunch... We had pizza and it was very good and I'm a Chicago boy who grew up eating pizza. I saw it's worth a meal.

I think I really say food is a disaster but this is one of them. Pizza was probably one of the worst I ever tried. Service was equally terrible. And the queue and people fighting to eat there, which was stunning in retrospective. They are in a strategic location and they know it. Effort is zero. I don't think you... More

I ate a pizza with a friend. They have both place indoors and outdoors. In my pizza I appreciated the good quality of the pasta, but I appreciated less the seasoning. It's a little bit expensive (the pizzas are €1-2 above the average, for example)

Often in Italy, and especially in Sicily, we could get a pizza to share for lunch. Our apartment host told us about La Rustichella as a good place to go for pizza. He was correct. Good pizza, good service, reasonable price.

We ate lunch here on arrival in Erice. We asked for water, anti pasto, and a pizza. After twenty minutes, we had pizza, but no water or antipasto. Asked, and got antipasto, asked again ten minutes later, and got water. The pizza wasn't very good; the antipasto was poor. It seemed like they were trying, but just don't have it... More

We had a good, simple dinner here last night. The service was very friendly and superb. We had the antipasto Della casa and and a pizza that had a thick but still light crust. The most expensive part of the meal was an excellent bottle of local red wine for 17 Euros. Highly recommend!

We walked around and looked at the various restaurants and decided to have pizza at this one. We ordered the pizza and it came in 12 minutes cooked perfectly. It was thin with a crispy crust and the right amount of toppings. The house wine was delicious and service was excellent we had a very positive experience. I don't usually... More

Ate today with my family. Pizza was great and very fresh. Only thing said that inside was air conditioned but actually it was switched off. For the rest really recommend, worth a visit.
