Great Pizza in Erice Centro

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!

For a change from seafood we were recommended this pizzeria and it didn't disappoint From the biggest choice of pizzas I've ever seen we chose a spicy salami and a vegetarian both of which were perfectly cooked delicious - and extremely filling!

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

I was here in October and had a fabulous meal. I'm really surprised to see all the negative reviews so I had to post! My boyfriend and I both had the touristic seafood menu and for 15 euros each we had antipasto, pasta, and fish, which I think is a great deal. The food was seriously excellent, really traditional and... More

Staff was rude, looked bored and never smiled. I was mostly ignored and my table was used as a dumb waiter a couple of times while I was eating. The pizza was ok, even though the crust was too thick.

The service people were snarly and clearly unhappy being there. The food in the cases looked old and had a few flies inside the case. We finally were seated (because our B&B recommended this pizzeria) and after one snarl too many we walked out. So, never tasted the food but are glad we moved on. The next pizzeria was just... More
