What more can you say about pizza.... it's pizza, this place had great pizza dough though fresh toppings, but the price is just a little high for what it is because in the end we're talking about pizza

My husband is italian, and for the job we travel all around USA, and we have to say that this pizzeria is one of a few (maybe 2 or 3) in all USA that has the real tasty italian pizza. Pizza dough is so soft (baked in wood oven), cheese so light, salad fresh, perfect! We were sitting outside on... More

My husband and I have eaten at Pizzeria Rustica several times and the food has been consistently good. We've never been there in good enough weather to eat in the outdoor patio area, but it looks nice from the sidewalk. The pizzas are really wonderful--thin crusts and delicious high quality ingredients. They'll also bring you a small dish with truffle... More

Since I used to live in Naples, it's hard to find pizza that can compare. This was the closest I've had since leaving Italy. Fresh, simple ingredients, and the best part is the pizzas are cooked in a wood-burning oven. The desserts are fantastic, too. The lemoncello gelato reminds me of Capri.

So good! Best pizza I've had, so authentic Italian pizza. Just basic pizza that focuses on whats on it rather than anything else. Not drowned in sauce or fats, and so fresh. The chocolate expresso beans, to die.

Beautifully prepared pizzas, appetizer and dessert with great/affordable wines. Perfect crust on a very interesting and flavorful goat, pepper and goat cheese pizza. Our second pizza was just incredible multi-cheese, no sauce pie with tons of flavor. Carie, our server was great. What a treat to have such a wonderful little place in our town. THANKS!

This restaurant was overpriced and the food was not really all that good. I had an iced tea that was terrible and had to send it back.

I highly recommend eating here. The pizza is amazing! The ricotta stuffed Rustica Pizza is something I crave and go back for.

This is probably the best pizza in town along with Il Vicinos but Rustica has the better atmosphere. Keep in mind COS has an abysmal resturaunt scene so all things are relative. This place has room to improve. For one, serve some bread like everywhere in Italy does. The Caprese is like 4 slices of tomatoe and 4 slices of... More
