OMG...we are from back east where the Italian food is the best. Thanks to Joanne and Dennis, the owners and chef, we have found great Italian food here in Colorado. What a treat and everything we have had there is wonderful!
Had my sons birthday party at Pikes Peak Ice Cream & Gelato. What an experience. Compared to the same old Itz or Chuckee Cheeze birthday party, this was an amazing experience. Rick is a wonderful gelato master and had (12) 4 year olds mesmerized and in total control the entire time. Best birthday party experience in Colorado Springs and well worth the money. Our family also went to the Air Force Hockey game last weekend and see that Pikes peak Ice Cream & Gelato is now a vendor of their wonderful gelato at Air Force Academy sports events. Keep up the great work!
Not sure about previous comments about the quality of the gelato if the US Air Force Academy selected this company for their fine institution. As for the service, I know the owners kids do work in the store at times....better than having them home on the couch playing video games!
You must try this restaurant! Nowhere else in town have I found so much attention and care for the ingredients and preparation of the food. Best Tomato soup I've ever had.
I went there my first time and the expierience was amazing!! I felt very comfortable and the live music was so gooood. I tried the "HeartAttack", it was nice, hot, spicy!! I'm glad I found a nice sushi place in town.
Amazing food and decorations!! GREAT atmosphere and the service is excellent:D
I absolutely love Pizzeria Rustica. Their caprese salad is awesome, and I have never had a bad meal there. I particularily like the Salsicca pizza - it is to die for. Their service is great - last time I was there the general manager came out to say to our table himself. Great time all around.
Me and my wife are really excited about this place. We have gone many times now and have enjoyed great service and a wonderful atmosphere. We have met new friends every time we have gone in. The bar and restaurant are open and the mood seems to attract a great crowd of people. It is hard to be alone at this place.
Now let’s talk food. My wife has always said that the best way to tell if the food is good is to try the appetizers. We tried the sampler platter. We were pleased with the selection and the taste was great. We have also tried the Wings, and they do not come by the piece. You get a whole pound! We tried the hot, but plan to try the other flavors soon. Wow, and the Fries with chili and cheese were great.
Me, I think the best way to check out a place is to try the Cheeseburger. Well the bread, meat and the cheese were a delight! My wife enjoyed her Green Chili and all was well in the world. The guy we sat next to had ribs and boy did they look good. Can’t wait.
The Beer, Cold Cold Cold (Nuff said). The mixed drinks are mixed just right. The Mixer complements the alcohol, the way it should be.
So, if you need a place to relax, unwind and enjoy good company and eats, and of course a good drink, then stop by the HOLY COW. The name says it all.

Our first experience here was for Valentines Day a couple of years ago and we were seated in the ballroom, which was converted to a dining room for the occasion. It was okay, but less than perfect. We just went back again a couple of weeks ago and were royally treated in the 'proper' dining room. The wine list is very extensive and the food and service were superb. We're putting this place on our top 10 list of local restaurants.
Had the Huevos Rancheros for breakfast & can't wait to go back, green chili was really good!
Wow. I cannot believe the reviews I'm reading. I've ate there three times (including tonight) and never had a bad experience. In fact, I've been to 40 States and 4 continents and given my vast experience the world over, I cannot think of anything bad to say about Pizzeria Rustica... and I've never seen a trashcan in the seating area and never heard of them running out of dough... which could happen considering good pizza like this is made with dough that has had a chance to ferment.
My husband and I eat here 2-3 times a month. The price is great and the pizza is amazing. The service is always friendly and prompt. The resturant is very clean and fun. We just ate their last night and are once again more the happy. We will be back in a couple of weeks :)
The poster of this review has absolutely no proof whatsoever that his illness is related to his dining at my restaurant. We have served dozens of the same menu items as he had over the last few days, without any other concerns or complaints from any other guests. And during his phone call to me just minutes before this posting, he was saying he was too ill to get out of bed, yet now he can pull himself together enough to quickly fire off revenge posts? He just assumes that I should write him a check without any kind of medical procedures to link his illness to dining at my establishment! I am more than happy to address his concerns if they are valid, but to claim a supposed food illness without this being proven to be a food illness, or a food illness related to my facility is ignorant, irresponsible, intentionally harmful and reckless behavior.

Jun is the best in town. Yes, it doesn't have the best atmosphere but the sushi its out of this world. Good pricing, large portions! We go there every other week and the waitresses take very good care of us. They even remember our usual order. Fantastic sushi!
Killer $1 tacos every Tuesday!
Great Bar-B-Que, Ribs, Brisket and Chicken. Prices are very good. My wife doesn't care for Bar-B-Que, so she has the cat fish and enjoys it. A little chilly if your upstairs with a group in the winter. But even then, the great food makes up for the tempature.
I've always had GREAT food there. I've been going there for years. My wife and I set in the Plane, but when we're in a group(10-15 people)we set in the Resturant.
Great ice cream and gelato. The store is also a great community supporter.
Colorado Springs is lucky to have many good Indian/Nepalese restaurants, and Little Nepal is no slacker, probably my favorite buffet in town!
GREAT FOOD BUT EXPENSIVE BURRITO'S ARE TO TOO SMALL FOR PRICE
Good food and excellent service
