Would return! Cioppino was fabulous, service top notch. A comfortable and casual place, fun menu. Only suggestion would be to use less goat cheese in the recipes. Other than that, Caffe Rustica gets an A.

Who knew that a small, tucked away restaurant next to Price Choppers would be so good! We had a reservation and initially they looked to seat us in the front dining room (without much atmosphere) but acquiesced when we asked to move into the nicer dining area. The specials were interesting and the wine list was decent. Will definitely return.

Lovely meal last night. Wonderfulservice. We had a hearty potato, onion and gorgonzola soup which was filling , cheesy, and delicious. Their signature pizza is a wonderful white one with eggplant, arucola, and goat cheese. We finished the dinner with a caesar salad and a delicious flourless chocolate cake.

Food was pretty good, but not exactly traditional Italian (e.g.: lots of goat cheese). Nice environment (don't be fooled by the location!) and great service.

Even though we didn't have reservations we were pleasantly greeted and within a few minutes were given a wonderful table. Our waitress was pleasant and really knew the menu. We chose three different exotic pizzas and all of them were excellent.
