“Roast chicken/ gluten free pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2011

I love the take out Mary's free range roast chickens. They are available after 4 each day. They have 3 flavors, I think the Greek is best, Tuscan a close 2nd.
Rustica also makes a wide range of gluten free pizzas, but they are a bit expensive and gf pizza at mariposa bakery is better.

“Disappointing More Than Once”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2010

We have eaten at Rustica a number of times. The pizza is fine. Not my favorite but acceptable. My husband has either pasta or a meat entree. Also fine, not great. I love the atmosphere. Small, great murals, intimate and cozy. The big disappointment is the staff. We ordered a bottle of wine that was brought to the table already open. The waitress didn't seem to know why it was a problem. Plates of food are put on the table without comment. Nobody comes back to see if things are ok. We waited forever for the check. Staff gossips behind the counter right next to our table. I'm not in a rush to go back.
