The decor was slightly yuppy, but this in no way detracted from the nice atmosphere of Rustico. The wait staff seemed knowledgeable and were very helpful. I had the Chicken Pizza with granny smith apples, bacon, and cheddar cheese. It was a delicious pizza but was a tad on the greasy side which goes against the style that the restaurant seemed to be attempting. The beer selection was nice with a wide range of styles on tap. The bottle selection was wide and separated by styles for easy browsing. The price for everything seemed reasonable and nothing stood as being ridiculously overpriced. Overall the restaurant was a nice place for some pizza and a couple pints. I plan on going again.

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.
