I absolutely LOVED Rustico. We went on a double date while on a ski trip to Telluride. The service was so friendly and fun-- and the atmosphere is great for groups or a date. Menu was phenomenal and for those who enjoy wine- your list is quite extensive!

I'm shocked I've never written a review for Rustico Ristorante because I have eaten there more times than I can count going back to the year it opened. When you eat at a restaurant so many times you are going to have an issue here or there. But when you love the service as much as we do (notable: Murat... More

We were a party of 9 and if you are a large party (as many are in a ski town) they put you in a room with big long tables crammed way to close together (so close you cannot eat comfortably because of the person seated at the table behind you and the proximity of the people next to you.... More

Our skiing group ate here last night and found the food and service to bring a smile in a very warm setting. Classic fired pizza oven, chef selections perfect after a day on the slopes and a staff top to bottom worked hard to deliver great service.

Very friendly welcome and attractive menu. Not too many dishes. The salads were quite small but main pasta and meat dishes substantial enough. Good wine list with variety. Well placed in center of town.

A nice evening for my husband and I! The RL steak was off the chart! The ravioli was also fantastic. We'd almost go back tonight (the next night) again because it was so good. The waiter was nice, friendly and Kevin the bartender was awesome too! Thanks for taking care of us!

Excellent bread and olive oil combo. Attentive service although our actual waiter was a bit of a boring chap. Mushroom soup was amazing and the pastas were appropriately cooked al dente. Nice place for a family dinner.

The food was fine, but not amazing. Service was slow, we had to ask for utensils. Bread was great, however!

The food at Rustico Restaurant is absolutely excellent. The menu is diverse and the service is exceptional.I had a veal dish that was one of the best that I have ever eaten. The proportions are more than ample and presented with care. There is a great wine list that I would wager has something for just about everybody. The atmosphere... More

Great food but server kept pushing more expensive options the entire time. Atmosphere was ok but really needs updating.
