Great experience at Rustico. Our service was exceptional. Loved our meals and the wine that was recommended was perfect.

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.

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.

We dined at Rustico Telluride on a Monday evening during the holiday season. Although it is a busy time in any ski resort, figure it out. If you don't have adequate staff, don't be greedy and overbook. Here are all the specifics: 1. They botched our reservation, even though we confirmed, and had us down for one hour later. This...

Nice restaurant. Great location and nice romantic atmosphere. Good service, the only thing is that the food is way overpriced. The food seemed bland with little flavor. I would rather spend my money somewhere else in telluride.
