Great lunch

FOOD: Loved the custom pizzas. The Rustic was good but our favorite was the Bianca with Capocollo ham, spicy oil, mozzarella, blended goat cheese, gorgonzola, portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, tomatoes, and fresh rosemary.

I love this place! I've never been disappointed with anything that I've eaten here. The spinach salad is so delicious and the pizzas are great. The service is fast and staff is always very nice.

As a 2nd generation Italian-American, I find the pizza here lacking in flavor. I don't know how a pizza can be served straight from a wood-fired oven and it be cold and the toppings without a char or carmelization. But this is what I was served. My pizza was gluten-free and had mozzarella, artichoke hearts, capers and olives and all... More

I just had a calzone and it was pretty good. My coworker had pasta and he liked it. Service was quick and pricing was moderate.

This is a small but nice restaurant in downtown Colorado Springs that is good and reasonably priced. They have a dinner special which includes a choice of several salads, choice of a small pizza, and a dinner for only about $11 - the amount of food is just right for one person. Service is very friendly and prompt. Servers regularly... More

This is an order and pay then take a seat restaurant. The pizzas are all thin crust and some come with unusual toppings. One word of warning: if it says it has a spicy oil for the sauce, it is really spicy. While the food was good and the combo meal was a good value, the house made root beer... More

Very nice staff. But, the pizzas (I've tried three of them) have always lacked a distinct umami. Couldn't really tell you what's missing. But, pizza is pizza and if you're staying at the Mining Exchange around the corner it's a safe bet. The root beer on tap is usually really good, but last time tasted like floor cleaner. Probably a...

Il Vicino has the best paninis and authentic pizza. Conveniently located downtown... The food is consistent and the staff always very attentive.

The gluten pizza was an extra 2.50 for the dough. Pizza were about 6 slices per pizza. They had many varieties and it was surprisingly good, for gluten free. We went there twice during our stay in Colorado Springs.
