Wow, my hubs and I are so glad we stumbled upon this gem! Our visit was during Happy Hour and we ordered a small pizza each for only $7 a piece. We could barely finish them and we hadn't even had lunch so we were hungry. Sarah at the bar was fantastic! She was attentive, knowledgeable and so friendly. All... More

Roostica has a nice atmosphere where you can see the wood ovens fired up on the back wall. They have several brews on tap including some locally brewed concoctions. We had hog fish and lasagna where the hog fish normally comes with a brown creamy gravy with capers we asked for a butter lemon olive oil sauce to garnish the... More

This isn't just some pizza joint. This is legitimate, inspired Italian cuisine. A bit off the beaten path, and well worth the easy drive from downtown. Atmosphere feels like what it is: a neighborhood place where all are welcome. Food is lights-out! Wood-fired pizza for my dad, and a daily special of Pork Loin for me. (I stole dad's leftovers!)....

One of the best kept secrets for lunch and dinner! Great menu with oven fired pizza! Gluten. free or regular. It's the best! Lasagna is to die for and the apps are all fabulous as well. Don't miss this one!

Good Italian food. Had meatball sliders...3 with a small cup of sauce. Tasty. Ordered 2 pizzas the next night. They only come in 12" size. Got 2 extras on each. $$$$ over $30.00. Pricey for 12" pizza's. Thin crust, not too spicy with sausage. That was a plus. No heartburn!

I never would have expected to have found such delicious Italian food in Key West! Our concierge recommended Roostica to us, as I have celiac and we were seeking gluten free pizza. Wow! Did we ever find the place. It's location is not near Duval Street; we did have to drive to get there, but it is worth the trip.... More

The decor is very nice. This place has some of the best pizza. The fig and pig is a nice change of flavor. The spicy diavola with pepperoni is hot, tasted a touch to salty. The garlic bread is average, not too impressed. I like the tomato sauce we had pasta and Sunday gravy with meatballs and sausage great deal.... More

We loved sitting out on the patio. The pizza was delicious. They have some unique pizzas but you can always build something more to your liking if you don't see something that grabs you.

The food was very good and the service was great. You got a lot of food for your money. The garlic bread does not come with the meal but order it, its the best garlic bread I have every eaten.

We got carry out from here multiple times during our stay at Boyd's Campground. Pizza was amazing and they had nightly pasta specials that were always delicious!
