I recently had a weeknight dinner here, three adult guys and a lady. I had not been here before. There is ample parking on the street, and behind the establishment. Seating for our reservation was immediate, in a booth with plenty of room for four...More

My husband and I met another couple for dinner at Rustico in Alexandria. The decor is very interesting; quirky and colorful mosaics abound. Since it was a nice evening, we sat outside at one of the picnic tables. We ordered peppers and meatballs as appetizers,...More

Good food and Colleen our waitress was great. The cheese and risotto tots were amazing and the beet salad was delicious. Not a beer drinker but an extensive beer menu. Open concept restaurant which might be noisy for some

Food is ok, nothing special. Restaurant is a little noisy because of the open space. I found the prices higher than they should be considering the menu. I had a half-sandwich/salad b/c it was the least expensive item on the menu ($12); a plain burger...More
