This place was great! Big family style tables, tight quarters, but exceptional service and food made that irrelevant. The halibut was superb! My daughter's ravioli delicious and the salads were good too. Would love to go back for another great meal while here!

Was there for our last nigh in town. Great pizza, and one of us had the veal, which was also very good. Large selection of fine wines, on the expensive side though. Service was so and so, but didn't alter the good mood.

We love Rustico and visit every time we are in T'ride. Excellent pastas and risotto and the all-Italian wine list is fabulous. Great for a large group but definitely make a reservation!

While on vacation we ate at this restaurant. We found it to be very good and well located downtown. Definitely worth the visit.

I absolutely LOVED Rustico. We went on a double date while on a ski trip to Telluride. The service was so friendly and fun-- and the atmosphere is great for groups or a date. Menu was phenomenal and for those who enjoy wine- your list is quite extensive!

I'm shocked I've never written a review for Rustico Ristorante because I have eaten there more times than I can count going back to the year it opened. When you eat at a restaurant so many times you are going to have an issue here or there. But when you love the service as much as we do (notable: Murat... More

We were a party of 9 and if you are a large party (as many are in a ski town) they put you in a room with big long tables crammed way to close together (so close you cannot eat comfortably because of the person seated at the table behind you and the proximity of the people next to you.... More

Our skiing group ate here last night and found the food and service to bring a smile in a very warm setting. Classic fired pizza oven, chef selections perfect after a day on the slopes and a staff top to bottom worked hard to deliver great service.
