A group of us ate lunch here. It was super. Appetizers were really good, small but great. Lunch was super. Wait staff was very attentive and helpful. Best meal in Telluride.

This place was great! Big family style tables, tight quarters, but exceptional service and food made that irrelevant. The halibut was superb! My daughter's ravioli delicious and the salads were good too. Would love to go back for another great meal while here!

Was there for our last nigh in town. Great pizza, and one of us had the veal, which was also very good. Large selection of fine wines, on the expensive side though. Service was so and so, but didn't alter the good mood.

We love Rustico and visit every time we are in T'ride. Excellent pastas and risotto and the all-Italian wine list is fabulous. Great for a large group but definitely make a reservation!

I'm shocked I've never written a review for Rustico Ristorante because I have eaten there more times than I can count going back to the year it opened. When you eat at a restaurant so many times you are going to have an issue here...More

Response from Ben K | Reviewed this property |
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.
