This place is a local favorite and expect it to be busy most evenings. I love the flatbreads and I also come for a great coffee and pastry. Casual atmosphere and a lively bar!

What a great place for a nice dinner. The menu has several standout entrees and the specials are great. The atmosphere is one of the great things and it is upscale urban bustle at it's best. The bar was well attended and there were celebrations going on at a couple of the larger tables. I had a seafood pasta dish... More

Never order off of the standing menu. The daily specials are always delicious. Check out the chicken salad, which is a different flavor almost every day, the pizzas that change with what the chef wants to make, and the sandwiches are nothing close to average. The restaurant started as a bakery so if you want some super fresh bread, this... More

We decided to try this restaurant after seeing the great reviews, and we were not disappointed! Our friend had been here before and also recommended it. The service was great and the food was excellent. Our friends had a yelloweye snapper dish, that was out of this world, and the short ribs, which were also amazing. The Caesar salad was... More

The best way I can describe this place is its like an Italian Panera. The food is really good, its cafe style and amazing. They are fast as long as you don't have to wait for a table.

Pana Rustica has continued to be great food consistently with solid ownership/management. Love lunch most as menu constantly changes but the best things they do are always available. Cookies are worth the calories. High energy place.

If you like chocolate, try he espresso cookies, they are the best! I also like their signature cookie, turkey sandwich and mozzarella sandwich. If you like thin crust pizza, they are very good.

That should tell you something about the food! They have a wide selection of sandwiches and pizza by the slice. Also gelatto. The food was great, bot hthe salads and... More

We are moving out of state soon and I had one last chance to have lunch here. Came around 1pm on Tuesday. Sat at a small high top near the bar where you can order verses ordering in the line. Drink orders were taken fairly quickly but took a while to be delivered. We had to ask for Splenda numerous... More

BEST. Chicken Salad. EVER BEST Cheeseburger. EVER This is an order at the counter and sit down they bring the food to you place. Unless you sit at the full service bar, which we did not. I told the nice lady that took our order that it was our first time there, she gave me a cupcake and a chocolate... More
