Rustica may be the best pizza in Colorado Springs, but the true winner is Angelo's on the river walk in Pueblo Colorado. The only problem I have with Rustica is the turn away I always get since I am not a native Coloradan. Especially when I bring family from out of state, all the tables are pretty empty, and we...

This pizza place is awesome. There are many interesting combinations and the pizza is perfectly done. The Foduta appetizer was outstanding. It is pet friendly on the patio.

The location is cool, and the pizza is yummy. Great wine selection as well. We have been there for lunch and dinner with our toddler. Have sat both inside and out. Love the patio outside if the weather is nice. I am from Chicago so I know good pizza...this is great!

Had a small antipasto which was a nice variety of items but nothing special. Also had our usual, the Salcissia (still don't know how to pronounce or spell it) pizza with sweet sausage; hmmm, yum! We split the two items and it was just enough for the two of us. I had a cappacino and it was served in a... More

Nice atmosphere and food was just ok. Mozzarella appetizer very good. Meatball appetizer had four bite size meatballs-pretty underwhelming. Pizza was good but nothing special. Just didn't live up to overall ratings.

Never had such a great pizza before, even in Italy. They have plenty of meat/veggie options, big pieces, its super fresh and simply delicious. I had the one with goat cheese and eggplant and even though it sounds weird - it was awesome. Would definitely come back for more.

Ordered the Rustico pizza. Highly recommend it. Loved the thin crust, sauce and fresh arugula on top. Chelsea was our server and she provided excellent service. Will visit often.

My wife and I have visited PR many times by ourselves and with friends -- it’s a good place to share with friends. ATMOSPHERE: Every time we can remember, the customers seem to have a joie de vivre, and the vibrant décor adds to this good cheer and friendliness. Very European. An upstairs area has more intimacy. Service has been... More
