Rustica has been my number one choice of places to eat in kalamazoo for about 4 years now. Amazing food. Good location and a classy atmosphere. Being small and located downtown, it can get really busy on the weekends but it's ALWAYS worth the wait.
We have always had great service and food. Never any issues. Most of the menu items are about $17-24 which is higher but not crazy. I think we have tried everything on the menu at least once and nothing has been disappointing.
I have two suggestions 1) try to get one of the three 2-seat tables along the glass wall by the kitchen. It's always interesting to watch the chefs cooking and preparing the plates. 2) order the pressed coffee with your dessert. It is beyond wonderful. I have tried to replicate it at home and it's just never as good.
