Terrific Food & Atmosphere

Rustica lives up to its name; rustic fresh food in a lively and comfortable atmosphere and plenty for the gluten free to enjoy! And, they are nice to children!

We met some friends here for dinner on our recent trip to DC. We arrived with a baby and a small child, met our party, and were warmly accommodated. A child's meal of pasta with butter was quickly fetched, and either it was so amazing, or our kid was starving (probably both), that a second bowl was ordered and devoured.... More

Went here with my family this past weekend and we were all very pleased. The restaurant has a great beer selection, both bottle and draft. They even have low cost beer sampling options. We tried the deep fried deviled eggs, and they were really fun. I had a brick oven pizza, and it was one of the best pizzas I've... More

From the happy Host to our super attentive server JEFF. Wait a great place for lunch. Hands down we all had something different and the selection of beer and wine was fantastic. I will be back

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

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.
