Picked up a Tuscan rotisserie chicken with the best sides ever, and all made fresh on-site: delightful beet salad, crunchy baby Brussel sprouts and yummy and moist French bread. Only problem: a parking space, but it's worth searching for one for the quality and selection...More

Pizza Rustica offers a few items besides pizza. The pizza is great, but we have also had the roast chicken, which was delicious too. They deliver, the prices are average for good food. I recommend it.

This is our take-from spot for pizza! Thin crust, either corn or regular, really gourmet pizza. Takes 20-25 minutes from the phone call. They have sit down as well, which is nice enough but small. The margherita pizza, with basil leaves, is really especially excellent....More

Can't say enough about the tasty pizza and large salads. We had a 14" tomato, fetta cheese, artichoke heart, and pesto pizza and a roasted walnut, cranberry and apple salad. The flavor was rich, not too cheesy with a thin crunchy 'peasant' crust. The salad...More

They have great chicken -- Tuscan, Jerk, Greek style. Good big salads. I get it to go or have it delivered. The salad dressings aren't terrific, I modify them to my taste, but they aren't bad. Chickens come with very tasty bread. Chickens are $14.95,...More

My review is on their Pizza only. This is not my first time visiting this place. Usually I wouldn't give my thoughts on a restaurant until I've gone there more than a single occasion. I a fan favorite for Chicago style pizza. For those who...More
