Having just returned from Italy I was looking forward to dinner at Rustico. Loved the patio, service was excellent and the food was good. Not Italy good, but close enough. However, it cost more than many of the meals that we enjoyed in Rome and Florence.

We had the best pasta since Italy. It was cooked perfectly and the sauces were light and flavorful. We sat outside and as the sun set it became a little cold even with the heaters.

The food was fantastic, out of 6 apps, salads and entrees everyone was smiling! Service above average for a mountain town, loud on the tented patio, ambiance was really the only thing lacking and it's not terrible just could be better. Wine list great with a few very good by the glass selections, chef specials (porcini mushrooms are in) were exceptional as was the three meat entree which was cooked perfectly and the Swiss chard and polenta a perfect side choice. Overall very good would recommend.

After over recreating in the gorgeous mountains surrounding Telluride, this was a lovely spot to rest the weary body, enjoy a glass of vino and good food. We sat outside and the nearby heater was perfect to take the chill out of the evening summer air. The pasta options were very good. The pizza was big...enough for two to share. The gelato was also a treat. Only complaint was the price...a little steep but then again, this is Telluride...not Montrose.

Pricey - but well worth it. After backpacking 5 days -- and losing our freedom, having to go back to beds, traffic, crowds -- this truly made the transition easy. Pasta was perfect w/ fresh local porcini (king bolete). mixed grilled fish. excellent soup. can ignore the local beer poured out of a can (it is a true Italian place after all) .
Staff was very helpful -- even after our jaws dropped from sticker-shock.
