Not your run of the mill pizza place

Great wines and gormet pizza. Their wine paring events are not to be missed. Friendly staff and ready to make you happy.

Pizzeria Rustica has some great variations on traditional ingredients and the patio is a relaxing place to enjoy one with a cool brew. Small place with personal service. In Colorado City, it's a gem.

How amazing is this place! Not only is the food delicious, the staff is amazing, and the place is so cute and romantic. Nestled in the middle of a street fun of pleasant shops. You must go and experience this place for yourself. Love it!!!

After walking around for 5 minutes we decided to eat at the "pizzeria". My wife and I have visited Italy and have had first hand authentic pizza. The pizza rustica seemed like a blind oaf had made it. Little to no sauce or cheese But a pound of baby arugula. At 14 dollars I would have gladly purchased a meat... More

My husband and I are not very experienced with pizzerias, but this trip changed our whole outlook on pizza! Very friendly staff. Quick service considering the pizza is made to order. Even the iced tea is better here :) We will definitely be back!

Pizzeria Rustica does not look all that inviting from the street, but take a deep breath and step in. You will be immersed in grandmother's kitchen - warm, happy noisy but not too loud, and delicious smells of baking pizza dough. The inside is small and friendly, tables arranged to encourage conversation with your neighbors, assuming you can talk with... More

We are visiting family in Colorado Springs and Denver for the holidays from Oahu and this was actually just a place we originally googled in "Old Colorado Springs". We hadn't even decided (we had narrowed it down to 3 that sounded good) but it ended up the first place we saw from our list after parking and starting our walkabout.... More

I came here with a friend on a chilly evening. The minute you walk in, you're greeted with warmth and smiles! The ambience in this place took me back to all the little restaurants I'd visited while living in Italy. I was pleasantly surprised! The pizza was fantastic. The dough was tasty and the toppings were fresh and delicious. Service... More

My wife and I had a delightful and flavorful meal at Pizzeria Rustica. We chose insalata mista, margarita pizza and house chianti and white wine - everything was perfect. My wife noted that the pizza was only slightly thicker than the ones we experienced in Naples. In fact, the restaurant does indeed have a European flavor: the decor is very... More
