We travel across town to eat here. Their pizza is really good. The menu has something for everyone and everything is good. We've also attended group gatherings here and their food for a large group has always been very very good. Highly recommend this place for a really good lunch or dinner.

Visited in the New Year, with my fiance and another couple. The four of us enjoyed the atmosphere, and several glasses of the House Red. Don't let me forget to mention the Tapas menu. It was fantastic!. The Mediterranean Quesedillia, Calamari and Ahi Tuna was incredible. The portions were gracious, and paired with their wine, fun was had by all.... More

We stopped for a light lunch --- splitting a caprese sandwich with salad. It was more than enough after devouring a nice warm small loaf of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Our waitress was delightful, helpful, told us about the area. It was Christmas eve day and not a lot of people in the restaurant at that time.

We have been there 3 times and we have enjoyed it every time. One of there servers , James, recommend a good winery. I am... More

I came out here with my women's group for lunch after hearing so many rave reviews about the food. I ordered the eggplant parmigiana with great anticipation. It was a total disappointment---it was so bland. It was as if they forgot to season it so it was not enjoyable to eat but I had to since it cost $12.99. Definitely... More

My husband and I decided on an impromptu date night at Rustico's, which is near our home. We shared the mussels and clams for an appetizer, the Margherita pizza for dinner and the creme brûlée for dessert. The appetizer and pizza was delicious! I would not order the creme brûlée again as I could tell it was just from the... More
