The place started to get packed but we managed to get a booth. Although it was January, the chalkboards still had ads and promos about Christmas. We took advantage of the happy hour special beers and a couple of small plates and the place was really nice but the noise level got kind of high. Service was okay...we were there... More

Moderate flavors and prices, very personable and friendly service, and fairly quick turn from order to food. I would definitely return for the roasted vegetables and brussels sprouts.

The food was outstanding, the craft beers excellent and the service warm and inviting. A favorite of my daughter and her fiancé, Old Towne residents, this restaurant is a neighborhood gem. The on site parking is also a major plus!

I'm lucky and live close to Rustico and consider this my go to place for great beers. Their food parring are pretty good as well. The pizza is thin crust with great toppings and the burgers have plenty of flavor. The deviled eggs are a great treat to get you started as well. Now the beer. I usually attend all... More

Huge selection of beer, great pizza - though not enough choices. The rest of the menu was enticing although we did not try. Most of the folks in eye-sight were eatinhg pizza. The other food items look pretty good although our table-neighbor's scallops smelled fishy at 3 feet away. Service was slow but they were slammed on a Sat evening... More

We went to this place based on TripAdvisor reviews, and boy..we were not disappointed! We were ravenously hungry after a long morning, ended up here in search of some good brunch. Their biscuit sliders were amazing! They make it without the meat if you like. We tried the asparagus pizza, not my favourite, though I can tell they would not... More

N.B. – This is a follow-up to a review I submitted on Rustico a year ago. My wife and I found ourselves in Alexandria around noon on Sunday … she wanted brunch, I wanted lunch. Based on previous visits, we decided on Rustico. And we got everything we wanted. The Brunching Begonia got French Toast, three huge slices piled high... More

Had a delicous meal with family Sunday night 10/12/14. Staff are very friendly. Nice menu. Had a wonderful beet salad...most interesting and unusual...so was the deep fried deviled egg:) A bit slow to get our entrees but worth the wait. Can't wait to go back

I've eaten here several times - morning, lunch, brunch, and dinner! Great every time. Very fun menu. Lots of variety with REALLY great food. A few of my favorites are the Brunch Burger - the mushroom pizza - the grilled caesar salad - but many other items are tasty too. The decor is just plain fun. The owner has provided... More
