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.
Our family recently joined a Paint-the-town painting party and had a blast! What a fun way to spend a cold, blustery evening with our kids. The new north-side Colorado Springs location is easy-access with plenty of free parking. The jivey music kept our creativity flowing while painters laughed with one another. Miss Bev, the owner/artist, led the class of all ages with her easy, happy style. By evenings end, we had met new friends and took home our own splashy sunflower canvases. We couldn't of had more fun as a family! And I will return soon with my office co-workers for a private team-building event to inspire some fresh ideas. Paint-the-Town is a new form of entertainment, safe for all ages, with lots of different classes, private parties and "fun"raising too! Go check it out! I bet you'll get hooked like we did and join-in more than once!

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!
This Center had a nice atmosphere, and friendly staff. Buds were great, tasted nice, but they didn't have any hash oil in stock when I went. I would recommend checking them out.
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!
Love this bar. Keep it going Woodys
My husband and I love to discover new places to "lunch" here in our city (which is chock full of them), and I-95 does not dissapoint. The service is excellent even when it's just their one hostess. She's was fantastic.
The guacamole bacon (oh -my- goodness) cheesburger is worth the trip up Powers even in the snow! I recently ducked in to pick one up to-go for my birthday lunch and their hostess gave my one of their homeade cookies as a treat. So nice : ) You've gotta try them!
Belles Lounge is an amazing venue. It seems like every time I've gone in in the past month, the sound system has improved & so has the crowd ;D Ever since Funky Fresh Entertainment took over advertising, promotions & staff the place has taken off, from Brew & Beats' open EDM night on Monday to D*Funked Friday & Community Service Saturday. There's always something cool happening at Belles...... but what's up with the Nick Jr on tv?
Killer $1 tacos every Tuesday!
All I can say is WATCH OUT BLACK SHEEP.... SUNSHINE STUDIOS LIVE ROCKS!!
ITS ALWAYS PACKED NOW. All the bands I have seen there just love this place. Who needs a bar... Its a Venue and the best in the Springs!! Best Sound, Lighting and Stage... The crew are Pro's and know what there doing. See you guys this week end!!
The variety of media I saw used in the various pieces of work on display was quite diverse and interesting. The show was definitely atypical, if compared to the work usually seen in other Old Colorado City art galleries that have been around for a while. There were no works of art on dispaly at this gallery featuring the typically seen Aspen trees, pine trees, or mountain seens, which are usually aimed at tourists visiting the area who do not see these types of sceens on an everyday basis.
The show was a breath of fresh air for the Colorado Springs art enthusiast, such as myself! I saw non-representational three-dimensional sculptural forms made from metal, wood, paint, and/or fiber, hand dyed fiberart pieces, pastel drawings, charcoal drawings, charcoal combined with pastel drawings, colored pencil drawings, pen and ink drawings, paintings, pieces featuring non-traditional, recycled materials, and even a tryptych consisting of framed silk ribbon weavings. There were quite a few portraits, an interior sceen, some intriguing still lifes, and a few photographic pieces, as well.
Every art enthusiast should come see this show before it ends soon. The last show is on Friday, February 4th from 5-8. There will be a reception and the opportunity to speak with each of the 12 artists on display about their artwork, which always makes viewing art more interesting.
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.
This is one of Colorado Springs' best hidden secrets. I will definitely be coming back. The service was great, the food was great, especially the kim chi, the best I've had in a long time.
