    I seem to be one of the few people not super impressed with Rustico. Kinda boring, typical "new American" fare. YMMV.

    Service was good. Menu is a bit pretentious for the quality delivered. Good beer selection, but can get crowded quickly.

    The 3 Little Pigs Burger. 3 kinds of meat on top of a 4th kind of meat. What's not to like?

    Amazing beer selection and delicious pizza. Badr the bartender is a cool guy too.

    Really nice place and the food is good. But both times I've been here the bar seems understaffed. One poor bartender seems to do everything.

    The beer selection is great and the food is quite good. Salad and scallops are good. But the service is no good. The hostess has a terrible attitude and the wait staff is very disorganized.

    Good pizza and fun happy hours!

    Washingtonian recommends the Buffalo wing dip, pork-belly sliders, and Caesar salad.

    Get the beet salad & add chicken. You won't regret it! Oh and fresh donuts for dessert.

    Tricia Gonzales · June 18, 2014

    Starters are the best part of the menu

    The lunch box is great soup, salad and half sandwich for $15

    Gotta sort out the logistics in the bar area. Received our pizzas before we got our appetizer and had to ask for plates. Great pizza though. Can't go wrong with San Marzano tomatoes.

    If you don't order the brisket cheesesteak you'll regret it.

    Order the Parmesan fries with truffle oil. Crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

    Sean Hackbarth · November 9, 2013
  • David C.

    If you have a large party 6 or more ask to split the bill ahead of time. They include 20% gratuity, but tag a "service charge" in addition of you do not split the bill.

    Had the deep-fried deviled eggs and Breakfast Poutine for brunch. They looked worthy, but were flavorless. Nice approach, just off. I'll be back to try something else, hoping it will be better.

  • Tim H.

    Awesome beer snobbery joint. Food and portions are good, though the selection is limited. 4-7pm happy hour worth a few bucks off drafts and craft brew cans. Go here. Enjoy.

    Great food and atmosphere. Def would go back.

    New mussels are disappointing, bring back the old recipe.

    They need some serious HVAC work done in this place. Food was great, but man it is an oven in here.

    Just tell the bartenders what kind of beer you like. They will find something new and great.
