Delicious food, friendly staff.

We were with a group of 60+ people. Our dinner, especially the sea bass, was delicious ,as was the chocolate mousse and the tiramisu. Preparing food well for a large group and serving with a smile is a tall order, but they did it. I highly recommend Rustico.

We were celebrating a birthday and looking for some pasta, Rustico certainly fit the bill. The food was very good overall, if not a bit pricey. The service was excellent and greatly appreciated. They even provided us with a complimentary birthday dessert drink which was really nice. The wine list was extensive and varied. All in all a great place... More

Went as a group of ten last night and found the setting, service and food all to be fantastic. Our waiter was exceptionally helpful and accommodated our requests with charm. I would happily return on my next visit to Telluride.

We went to Rustico for dinner and had a very good time. The waiters are very friendly and the food is excellent. They also have an impressive wine list. The dishes that we liked a lot were the fried calamari, the risotto with truffles and the osso buco. I would recommend Rustico to friends.

Nice experience on patio, but food and wine by the glass are way overpriced, sorry to say. Pleasant on the patio in the summer, but that's the nicest thing I can say. Food is adequate, but nothing to rave over.

in this restaurant, we were in a festive and very good humor, and we tend to be permissive and we didn't care about the time, but to be fare, the pasta dishes are good, but as you could see in the picture i took their carpaccio is terrible, poor and with no taste, their side dish of beets very bad,...

Made a return trip to Rustico after years of boycotting the restaurant due to poor service and overpriced food. I was pleasantly surprised. The food was still overpriced but was quite tasty. The appetizers came out promptly which set a good tone. The main courses came out slowly which brought back bad memories. However the food was delicious. We had... More

Always one of the best meals in Telluride. The owner, Palo, has become a friend through the years and "somehow" made a table available for the early service on New Years Eve. His is the only restaurant to serve the Double RL prime filet minion, as in Ralph Lauren... from RL's ranch near Telluride. Wonderful, attentive service and fabulous deserts.
