Rustico has such a huge beer list that there is nowhere to even start looking. I selected a strong dark beer and it was quite tasty. The food items are interesting, and most of us were satisfied with what we ordered. Our waiter, Kenny, was quite excellent, and took wonderful care of us from start to finish. For the young,... More

and pretty much any other beer style you could want on their awesome list. We went there for IPA Day 2014 and Rustico did not disappoint. Try the deep friend deviled eggs!

Rustico never disappoints. Great beer, great food (especially the tots), and all around good atmosphere.

Terrific menu of casual foods; something for everyone and their gluten free pizza is the best I've ever had.

Whenever were craving pizza, we head to Rustico for their thin and crispy pizza. For apps, try their risotto tater tots or their new soft pretzel bites. Soooo good! We normally sit at the bar, where the service is generally pretty good. The bar area is huge, but gets busy, so get there early for HH if you want a... More

Whenever I am in town Rustico is a must on my list of places to eat. What can I say, I love Pizza and I love Rustico's Pizza. There are wonderful toppings to choose from and you can create your own pizza. They also specialize in beer, which I know nothing about, but have a beer menu that is huge... More

If you are looking for a deep and broad beer selection, you have found the right place! The wait staff are incredibly knowledgeable and will when prompted offer alternatives to your taste based on what they have on hand. Service was attentive without hovering. The beer is not the only great thing about Rustico. The seating was varied and comfortable.... More

Rustico is a large, modern restaurant and the place to be on Friday nights in Arlington VA. Huge bar, comfortable tables in both the dining room and the bar area. Lots of draft beers and house wines to choose from. Upscale pub grub includes homemade pizzas and burgers. good service and reasonably priced.

The noise is deafening, impossible to have a conversation. Men's restroom messy. Food is fine but the owner must want people out quickly given the glass and brick walls to maximize sound reflection. Could be fun if rebuilt. Not cheap but comparable prices. A quiet good place nearby might encourage owner to revamp decor. Huge new developments nearby may not... More

Brunch on the day of the big game was excellent. Recommend fried deviled eggs, salt roasted beet salad, breakfast panini, donuts - all great (especially since restaurant wasn't busy, thus was quiet). This was our first visit - we'll definitely be back!
