This place was around the corner from where we stayed. We got a light dinner of a cheese and veggie plate and a large salad. Nice atmosphere and good service. Not a 5, as we really couldn't speak to their regular dishes, but we did...enjoy what we had. Good social distancing.More

If you like old world style pizza and a few hand picked wines and the small family style feel this is the place for you.

I ordered what sounded like two delicious pizzas. The pizzas were ready on time and the service for take out was good. The pizzas were lacking in everything from the sauce to all the toppings - very little sauce and even fewer toppings. Very disappointing...given the high ratings on TripAdvisor.More

Flour from Italy means my husband, who is gluten intolerant, can eat pizza! And pizzas and antipasti are delicious!

Great fresh pizza located in a fun, historical building in old Colorado City. Make sure you go upstairs. Food and service are always top notch.

Came here with my husband and 2 small children after a long drive to Colorado Springs from Texas and Pizza Rustica was the perfect dinner choice. Service was absolutely fantastic, everyone so lovely. We got a Caesar salad, which was delicious, and 2 tasty pizzas....The outside space was great and made us feel more comfortable amid all the COVID stuff. Definitely recommend.More

The food was delicious! The pizza was sublime. The sauce was very flavorful and the crust was perfect. The fresh ingredients fill you up, but dont lay heavy on your stomach. The fresh mozzarella is so much better than normal mozzarella. Now the dessert, oh...my goodness! The dessert was the best part of the meal! The upside down almond and chocolate tart was amazing! The chocolate was so rich, the almonds add a nice crunch, and to top it all off they put fresh whipped ricotta cheese on top making it amazingly delicious. We also got a brick oven baked chocolate chip cookie with vanilla bean gelato that was the best. The cookie was super crunchy and gooey. The gelato was the star. It had a strong vanilla flavor and it was so creamy. All in all it was an amazing meal and if I could give it six stars, I would.More

Trusted the reviews (plus a couple of local recommendations), and we were not disappointed in the least. The pizza was really, really good. We weren't terribly hungry, so splitting one was fine. Good wine list as well. The service was awesome as well. They worked...hard to fit us in, then gave great advice on the menu. The closest thing I have to a complaint is that the beer selection is quite limited and all cans. Is what it is. Not their focus...More

My wife and I had pizza there yesterday for lunch. At first, the service was good and very attentive. We only ordered pizza and water, and the restaurant was not busy at all. Our pizza came out very quickly, which actually was a surprise. The...pizza itself was only average. Well the flavor of the crust and the freshness of the crust was excellent, the pizza had not been baked a high enough temperature long enough leaving the crust soggy underneath the pizza. Once we finished our pizza, our waitress seemed to disappear and was not back at our table for quite some time. My wife had to actually flag down the manager and get her to bring our check. I would not recommend this restaurant for the pizza. It did have a very nice atmosphere, however, with a large wine selection if that interests you. All in all though, we will not be going back.More

This place is phenomenal!! The food is incredible, and the assistant general manager is a genius. He found us the perfect wine, and his expertise about the restaurant was off the charts! We got 3 desserts for our family of 4, and it was perfect....The food was so good we could have cried. We’re 100% coming here again. A must stop!More

No, they do not. They have GF options on the salads and some appetizers, but not pizza crust. (Nov 2018)
