Rustico has such a huge beer list that there is nowhere to even start looking. I selected a strong dark beer and it was quite tasty. The food items are interesting, and most of us were satisfied with what we ordered. Our waiter, Kenny, was quite excellent, and took wonderful care of us from start to finish. For the young, hippish crowd the atmosphere would be very attractive; for me it was a little too loud, but not intolerably so--we could still converse. The prices are in line with Alexandria. For a casual dinner, this is a good choice.

and pretty much any other beer style you could want on their awesome list. We went there for IPA Day 2014 and Rustico did not disappoint. Try the deep friend deviled eggs!

Rustico never disappoints. Great beer, great food (especially the tots), and all around good atmosphere.

Terrific menu of casual foods; something for everyone and their gluten free pizza is the best I've ever had.

Whenever were craving pizza, we head to Rustico for their thin and crispy pizza. For apps, try their risotto tater tots or their new soft pretzel bites. Soooo good! We normally sit at the bar, where the service is generally pretty good. The bar area is huge, but gets busy, so get there early for HH if you want a table in the bar.
