Went to this lovely Italian restaurant in downtown Telluride this past week for dinner. I was with 5 other ladies who were doing the Telluride Women's Ski Weekend. The food was very good. I had fettucine with wild mushrooms. Yum. The portion was a bit...More

We were part of a group of around 40 people. We were seated in a private dining room and had just great service with a private bar set up just for us. The pizza appetizer was simple, but perfect. The meal was simple but delicious.

We very much enjoyed a nice dinner at Rustico; delicious food and wine and very friendly but not overbearing or rushed service by our waiter, I.P. But if you are looking for cheap spaghetti dinner and a glass of Ripple, you will not enjoy it...More

We had 6 adults and a toddler. They were easy to make a reservation with and the staff and experience was lovely. If we had enough time we would have gone back again!

Skiing and pasta go well together. Service was a little quirky, but great. Lots of fresh options on the menu. Both of our pastas were tasty and we had some leftover for lunch the next day.

Decker, our waiter, was very friendly, attentive, knowledgable, captivating enthusiasm! Visiting with him is worth a return trip! The food wasn't quite as good as we would have hoped but with more salt, sauce, and garlic we fixed it to our tastes! They brought bread,...More

I used to eat here many years ago. I tried it again last night and was disappointed in the quality. I have had numerous trips to Italy so perhaps spoiled on real Italian food. Calamari on the menu is fried where more traditional is grilled...More

I believe some of the dishes on the menu will be gluten free. The restaurant should be contacted for confirmation of which menu items qualify for that designation.
