Good Italian

The most important thing for restaurant is to have good food, and we really enjoyed our meals. My wife's risotto was unusual in that it was more a rice and broth than a creamy Risotto, But that may be a regional variation. My seafood fettuccine was delicious. Caesar salad's were good but basic and... read more

Loved this family owned restaurant. Great food and ambiance. White table cloth and upscale but not pretentious. Brought the kids. Wonderful.

We ate at Rustico last night having a ravioli dish and an excellent veal mushroom meal. Both exceeded our expectations. They were full of flavor without being drowned in over spiced sauces. Nothing gripes more than to try hide veal with a sauce that is super spiced so you just have no idea the taste of the veal. Service was... More

Upscale Italian, great service and wonderful scallopini. It was busy but got in without reservations. Waiter was a lot of fun and most helpful.

I can't vouch for the main menu at Rustico since we had a rehearsal dinner there for my son (although everyone we talked to in Telluride including locals certainly vouched for it). However the rehearsal dinner could not have been better. it is not easy to prepare a dinner for a hundred. Especially so for fish but not here. the... More

We first went to Rustico two weeks ago and have been back every couple of days since. The friendly and informed staff are great. The wine selection is vast and very, very good. The food is without doubt the best that I have ever had. I honestly did not know that a simple pasta dish could include such flavours. How... More

Great fish specials, pasta dishes and pizza. We ate here for lunch and dinner on our last trip and enjoyed both. The fish special both days were fresh and light. Relaxed, casual environment with a true Italian feeling. For those with children, no kids menu but offered to do smaller portions of pasta. All outdoor tables are shaded and in... More

It was like walking into my family's living room. The staff at Rustico were warm and engaging, everyone was ready to shake our hands and answer all of our questions. The food was incredible, my favorite was the pasta with fresh seasonal mushrooms. Enjoying a glass of wine with the town of Telluride as the backdrop was like a dream... More
