LOVED the food, but if you don't like being close to your neighbors or other people's conversation easily annoys you, this might not be the spot for you.

My daughter and I accidentally found this cute pizzeria in the middle of a small town in Colorado Springs. Great service and one of the best pizzas I ever had! I will come back if I ever come back to the area.

We sat on the 'dog friendly' patio even though we were dogless. The ambience was fine! We started with the daily special of a flatbread salad and then had a wonderful pizza that had Italian ham, artichokes, olives and fresh mozzarella. The wood oven bakes the pizzas at 825 degrees! Great experience.

Even though we made reservations, it was only two of us, and the place was only 1/3 full when we got there, we were seated at the end of a row of tables, in the middle of the room, next to the kitchen, in the pathway of the bathroom and espresso machine. The food was good, the antipasta was fresh... More

We had the White pizza, and the Rustica pizza with stuffed crust, the Fonduta, and vegetarian antipasti appetizers. Everything was delicious, service was great, and we had a wonderful family dinner, and enjoyed immensely! Barely any leftovers, as we stuffed ourselves!

Rustica may be the best pizza in Colorado Springs, but the true winner is Angelo's on the river walk in Pueblo Colorado. The only problem I have with Rustica is the turn away I always get since I am not a native Coloradan. Especially when I bring family from out of state, all the tables are pretty empty, and we...

This pizza place is awesome. There are many interesting combinations and the pizza is perfectly done. The Foduta appetizer was outstanding. It is pet friendly on the patio.

The location is cool, and the pizza is yummy. Great wine selection as well. We have been there for lunch and dinner with our toddler. Have sat both inside and out. Love the patio outside if the weather is nice. I am from Chicago so I know good pizza...this is great!

Had a small antipasto which was a nice variety of items but nothing special. Also had our usual, the Salcissia (still don't know how to pronounce or spell it) pizza with sweet sausage; hmmm, yum! We split the two items and it was just enough for the two of us. I had a cappacino and it was served in a... More
