Rustico in Alexandria is becoming a go to place for me. Great draft selection (Had Sculpin on draft today), and big bottle list, and always a couple cask ales. The atmosphere is nice, not too loud, and usually not super packed for lunch. The service has been nothing but phenomenal, and I've been there probably 10 times over the last year. I ordered an espresso today, and their espresso machine was on the fritz. My waitress said, "I'll find you one", and ended up going across the street to get me one. Wow. It's been like that every time too. Above and beyond the call of duty. The food is fantastic as well- never had anything there that's been less than stellar. You can drop $30-$40/lunch w/ a couple beers, but it's worth it. Fantastic place, and I will continue to go there at least monthly. HIGHLY recommended!!

I've stopped by Rustico numerous times and always enjoy the beer and food. On my last visit they had De Ranke XX ($8), Blvd Saisonbrett ($7), Jade IPA ($5), Spacewalker ($4) and several others. Not bad for a draft list.
One of our beers came out with a bit of foreign material floating in it (probably something from the beer line that dislodged) and our waitress exchanged it immediately. I wouldn't ding Rustico just because it does happen occasionally. We also were brought a beer that we didn't order and were told to keep it on the house.
Food is above average and include pizzas, hummus and other better bar food.
