Never order off of the standing menu. The daily specials are always delicious. Check out the chicken salad, which is a different flavor almost every day, the pizzas that change with what the chef wants to make, and the sandwiches are nothing close to average. The restaurant started as a bakery so if you want some super fresh bread, this is the place to go. The sourdough is to die for!

We decided to try this restaurant after seeing the great reviews, and we were not disappointed! Our friend had been here before and also recommended it. The service was great and the food was excellent. Our friends had a yelloweye snapper dish, that was out of this world, and the short ribs, which were also amazing. The Caesar salad was great, but the anchovies were a little too fishy for me. I had the pork cheek small plate with a shrimp and corn croquetta, which was absolutely delicious, and my husband had the gnocchi bolognese, which was also very good. Excellent casual dining experience.

The best way I can describe this place is its like an Italian Panera. The food is really good, its cafe style and amazing. They are fast as long as you don't have to wait for a table.

Pana Rustica has continued to be great food consistently with solid ownership/management. Love lunch most as menu constantly changes but the best things they do are always available. Cookies are worth the calories. High energy place.

If you like chocolate, try he espresso cookies, they are the best! I also like their signature cookie, turkey sandwich and mozzarella sandwich. If you like thin crust pizza, they are very good.
