Wonderfully authentic and fresh. The flavors of the food linger long after the meal is finished. I very much appreciate the care and perfection of the preparation of the food. I look forward to many more visits.

We tried the Street Food Sampler, but the arancini was the best. Next time, we'll just order the arancini. Pizza was good, especially the crust. However, the calzone crust was disappointing. We'll stick with the pizzas in the future.

I’m a pizza snob and yes, I’ve had pizza in Naples (mostly mediocre) and many other places as well. This place is serving great pizza. Keep it simple, don’t overload your pizza with ingredients, and enjoy. One pizza per person is about right for most...More

We'd heard about this place north of Iowa City and decided to give it a try. It exceeded our expectations by a factor of 10X. The owner is from Naples Italy, the epicenter of the pizza universe. The genuine wood-fired Italian imported oven is the...More

Hype and anticipation usually leads to bitter disappointment I’d hyped up and waited for some time to try Rusciano’s and it was almost everything I thought it would be . Now before you exhale in disappointment almost does not mean something bad. When I think...More
