Good pizza!

Order from the La Salle location or the College Ave location and its always good. Pizzas have fresh toppings. Salads are good. And try the chicken - it's delicious too. This time we went for pizza and we weren't disappointed.

Never eat in, sometimes pick up, often they deliver. Roast chickens in several flavors, all good (Tuscan the best). Their half salads are big -- can serve 3 people, and their full salads aren't twice as big, nor do they cost much more than the halfs. Dressings aren't perfect, but pretty good. The Waldorf salad is not like my grandma... More

We get pizza delivered from Rustica a couple times a month. We love the BBQ chicken pizza and also the Caesar salad. The rotisserie chickens are tender and great. No complaints here.

I love the take out Mary's free range roast chickens. They are available after 4 each day. They have 3 flavors, I think the Greek is best, Tuscan a close 2nd. Rustica also makes a wide range of gluten free pizzas, but they are a bit expensive and gf pizza at mariposa bakery is better.

We have eaten at Rustica a number of times. The pizza is fine. Not my favorite but acceptable. My husband has either pasta or a meat entree. Also fine, not great. I love the atmosphere. Small, great murals, intimate and cozy. The big disappointment is the staff. We ordered a bottle of wine that was brought to the table already... More
