Amazing food, great atmosphere!
I love Pizzeria Rustica. The wait staff is friendly, courteous and responsive. The pizzas are fresh and delicious. The wine and beer selection is decent. The restaurant makes efforts to buy local produce and local products with a focus on sustainable business practices. I'd recommend it as a great dining experience, with one caveat-- getting a table on Friday or Saturday night can be a nightmare... but luckily they do reservations. Go on a whim any weeknight, but weekends-- call ahead or you might be S.O.L.
Pizzeria Rustica: Wow - they need to sell the business to someone who knows how to run a restaurant. We tried this place 3 times. One time we sat by the trash that smelled, tonight they ran out of dough. All 3 times they were rude. Of all the great places to eat in Colorado Springs, this is not one of them.
i love your pizza, but i received a call the other day saying i was getting a free app nxt time i called to order. I called. when i mentioned the app, I was told i had to be transferred to the store. I then went on unending hold. I called back to the stores direct number on 8th street. I was put on hold again and then after i ordered, I was told the time would be an hour (no big deal) and asked if i was sure this was something i wanted to do. No its not. Dominos is on their way.
classic, well prepared, fresh ingredients, salad dressing has a great clean bite. Carla, Amber & rest of the staff always readywith a bright smile! Don't be intimidated by the wait on Fridays and Saturdays - well worth it!
This is a review of the Monument location.
The pizza itself is very good - our favorite pizza and the new Monument location has a nice environment. Here's my problem specifically w/ the Monument location. After ordering your pizza at the counter, when it's busy (dinner time on the weekends for example) you have to wait around for a table to open up. Unfortunately, there's not a good way to keep track of who's been waiting the longest and should get the next table. This results in the potential for conflict when a table opens - who was there first? Who should get the table? I don't like that.
Over priced and really over priced. I have ordered their main selections, but in a gluten free crust. It really is a personal sized pizza AND they charge per item. So when you order that personal sized gluten-free crust, you are paying dearly. Be forwarned. You can make it much cheaper at home. The Caprese "salad" should be served as a salad to make it more hearty. Currently it is served traditionally a few slices of tomato, buffalo mozzarella and basil, drizzled with balsamic. Serve it over some lettuce and it will be more worth the price!
I love it but quit ordering due to very slow delivery times and always getting cold pizza... it's just too expensive for that and I only live 5 blocks away... sad loss
This place is over hyped. They have decent pizza, but they do not care about either customers or employees. NY attitude is one thing but not giving a crap is another thing. I briefly worked for them at the Platte location for about three months as a delivery driver. Before that I worked as a driver for another place for six years. They have bad phone lines so orders are hard to take. They often do not have enough drivers working so orders are late. If there was a problem getting an order to a customer I often could not call the customer because I would have an incorrect phone number. Then the manager would just lie to the customer to cover his own ass. The pizza may be OK but there are other places in town that aren't going to treat you like crap and probably have better pizza. Don't give your money to the folks at Borriello Brothers. There is better pizza out there and nicer people.
excellent food, attentive/prompt service, great prices - one of my favorites.
I took the family in to Pizza Madness to see Marty Wayne perform. He was amazing. The trick he did with my daughter's quarter just freaked us out. We still talk about the great time we had there and the food was good too.
Good pizza, good calzones, both with great toppings options, but the sandwiches are GREAT. Especially the cold turkey sandwich. A fresh tasting sub with "better-than-your-average-sub" bread... crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Simple. Casual atmosphere, friendly service, inexpensive and family friendly.
The best pizza in the springs! highly recomend it.
Had the pizza.would not recommend it. sauce is missing somthing.Flavor. save your money buy a pizza from a grocery store.
Fun place to take the kids, old fasioned setting, the food was only so so but still a bit pricy. Go for the salad bar and a smaller pizza.
Wanting to try something new, myself and some friends decided to drop by Pizza Madness on a friday night and was just astounded when I realized they had a magician. He came over to our table and performed some jaw dropping feats that made us wanting to come back for more. He's just phenominal, and a really nice guy. Ask him to show you to do a trick with a quarter, it just blew us away. And to top it all off the pizza was excellent!
Il Vicino never disappoints! They have a super affordable lunch special that includes a small pizza, salad and soda. Filling in the belly without draining the wallet. Great, friendly, fast service and truly good food. The simplicity of the pizza margherita nears perfection and the salads are full of flavor and delicious ingredients.
Boriello Brothers has once again dropped the ball and shown that they do not know how to run a pizza restaurant.
In case you did not know, they use a call center to take orders, and have (multiple times) had the order put in a completely different location. You can't even talk to a real person at the location that you're ordering from!
Also, in response to the "real" NY pizza comments and claims...if this is true NY pizza, they would carry Baked Ziti Pizza. If you have ever been anywhere near NYC you would realize that every single place has this...it's a staple. Last time I called and asked (apparently a manager at the 8th street location) if they could cook that and they said they "could cook anything." Sooooo, I called them back and asked to order it the next day and all of a sudden I talked to some jackass (probably from NYC) manager who blew me off and said that he couldn't make it. Funny.
This place certainly has the NY attitude we have come to love, but the pizza, business model, and management can use a serious adjustment. Don't give them your business.
If you want real NY pizza, head to NYPD Pizza on Powers!
OC Academy has been my home port for the entire decade. Food's good, beer's better, people are the best!
I have only tried there egg plant and it was very good. The dining atmosphere was average.
