We had a pizza and one of the specials, scallops with risotto and the food was excellent. Our server was exceptionally helpful and friendly. The red wines offered were very good and relatively well priced. Would definitely go back to Roostica.

Roostica is the second venture of the owners of the long time Key West hidden favorite, The Hog Fish Grill. The restaurant specializes in true D.O.C. Neopolitan pizza and EXCELLENT "homestyle" Italian cooking and when I say homestyle they even call the tomato sauce "gravy" as I always have. In point of fact the taste is remarkable similar to my own gravy from my godmother's recipe. The food is excellent, on a busy night service can be a little slow but well worth the wait. Be sure to go on SUnday night for a family style treat of pasta, sausages and meatballs!

Service was great. They have inside and outside tables. Atmosphere is very good. The server offered excellent suggestions for dark beer and the result was very pleasing. The menu offers a nice range of Italian food.
The pizza was warm and the cheese was good .. but the toppings we ordered were sparse; hense the average rating.

Good food…okay experience. As it was our first time at the restaurant we walked in and it was a bit confusing. The takeout area is right when you walk in so there isn’t necessarily a “hostess” but we were quickly shown to a table. That said, we heard others walk in get a choice of inside, outside or bar to watch the wood fire pizzas. Having been our first time, it would have been awesome to watch the pizzas being made but we had no idea that was an option. We ordered the eggplant stack, bruschetta and two pizzas. The food was good. One other downside was that my husband found that his coke was flat. When he told the waitress, they were happy to bring him something else but they kept serving the coke! We heard tables around us return the same cokes for the same reason (maybe let them know before ordering?) The outside area looked very pretty and magical but alas I didn’t get a close up look. Very limited parking. Saw lots of people getting takeout and the restaurant was very full so definitely a popular spot.

Choose this place based on location but pleasantly surprised. The cheese puffs(mozzarella balls) were wonderfully delightful as the pizza. Pizza tasted awesome but would preferred crisper crust. Hogfish piccata was good. Wrapped dinner up with lava cake which the three of us split, omg is all I have to say! We will be back! Casual atmosphere with wooden benches with artistic pillows. Friendly waitress who was really good/helpful.
