We ate dinner here while on vacation. It has a good location and ambiance, but we didn't find the caprese-type pizza to be anything special or unforgettable & it was a little overpriced. Maybe we would have felt differently if we'd ordered and been wowed by appetizers and dessert rather than just our pizza and wine. Our server seemed a... More

We had a truly memorable meal. I don't usually eat pizza but ours was to die for. We had Fonduta and Caesar Salad to start and then shared Pizza Rustica. For dessert we had a special cannoli with espresso gelato. YUM! Can't wait to go back.

If you want real food that happens to be pizza you need to visit Pizzeria Rustica. Fresh ingredients and hand crafted food including great salads and appetizers to compliment the center piece which is the pizza. I can personally vouch for the smoked mozzarella and the meatball apps, the Caesar salad and the Cinque Formaggi, the Rustica and the Margherita... More

The waiter was very helpful when we were ordering. He informed us that some of the food had very big portions so he recommended that we share 2 salads between the group. He was very right and we shared the 2 salads with ease and both were very good. The pizza is Old World style and was very good!

This restaurant was the perfect family place! Beautiful decor but casual, a nice patio, and the waitstaff was extremely friendly! The service was quick, the food was very good and tasted very fresh! We will visit again the next time we are in CO Springs!

My husband and I were looking for an Italian restaurant. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and based on the reviews, we picked Pizzeria Rustica. We started with a Caprese salad and then had the best pizza ever. It had the freshest ingredients, basil, tomatoes and mozzarella cheese. If you are in Colorado Springs, give this restaurant a try.

We wanted Italian, and found this place. They only have pizza but it was absolutely to die for! Their salads and appetizers have more options, so we did try those. The antipasti plate was exceptional with many unique choices - our favorite was the goat cheese stuffed peppercini, and the salami. The Caesar was just okay - mostly chopped baby... More

When here for lunch with my son who lives in Colorado Springs, we do different restaurants as we are both foodies. The pizza was outstanding, great taste for not many topping. We'll do again here soon. Everyone was very friendly, stop in and enjoy.
