Excellent food and service. We visited for lunch two days in a row. My wife had a caprese salad one day and chicken Caesar the second. My dishes were ravioli bolognese and fettuccine mare. All of the dishes were very tasty and ample.

Rustico's has always been one of my favorite restaurants in Telluride. The last couple times I've visited, the quality has taken a turn downward, which makes me sad. We sat outside on uncomfortable chairs; not a cozy atmosphere at all. Sorry to say, I may not go back.

I want to love Rustico - I really do. We love Telluride and we love Italian food, but this place is mostly just going through the motions. They're in a prime location, so maybe they can afford to coast, but everything here feels mediocre, from the service to the food to the ambiance. Worst of all, the prices are very... More

Great service. Wonderful food. Pizza, spaghetti and salmon were all delicious. Chocolate mousse worth a splurge. Perfect family lunch.

I brought 12 kids and 5 adults here as part of a small overnight camp. They accommodated our large group and Murat, our main server, along with Ronan and another server, were extremely attentive- they catered to the kids just as much as the adults and were always friendly. We all ended up getting different pasta dishes which were delicious... More

Food was very good and plentiful! Not one of these foo foo places where you get a dabble of spaghetti and a smear of sauce. Real size portions for humans, and very tasty. The marinara sauce was excellent. The service was even better! Very attentive, I felt like many people were taking care of me. I liked the busy bustling... More

All the food was good and whenever we needed anything, the employees were there to help. The bread is also very good. It was amazing how fast they brought out things we asked for(desert menu, parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar, etc.). The only downside I see is that it is pricy($25-$30 per person).

This was our first stop in Telluride upon arrival. We had a reservation for 10 and they did a terrific job of accommodating us. Everything about this restaurant was terrific. We had great wine, their veal, pizza and ravioli were all delicious and we all left with clean plates. Definitely would go back!

We were in Mountain Village for a meeting and took the gondola to Telluride and ate at Rustica's. Ate outside, great atmosphere, excellent service, and detailed attention to food. I had sea bass which was the best I've ever had. All seven of us commented on the restaurant's excellence.
