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

Good place to have lunch. Great and original pizza choices, like the pumpkin pizza. They have lots of sandwiches too and salads. The setting is nice and the staff is friendly and helpful.

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

Best pizza I've had in the states in a long time. The menu is not overwhelming but they do have pizza. About 10 different specialties and of course, create your own. The beer selection was overwhelming, and not well organized on the menu. I tried a couple of different local brews and enjoyed them both. If you like a restaurant... More

If you love craft brews this is THE place to go IMO, it is amazing their selection is huge and the workers there know beer enough to give solid suggestions. Their food is phenomenal as well, would highly recommend.

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,...
