We just had the whole family, ten of us, feast at Rustico in Telluride. Amazing dishes, all excellent. The wait staff, especially Decker, are professional, enthusiastic and good fun. A very, very enjoyable evening.

Being great by a native Italian host is always a good sign at an Italian restaurant. This popular, busy restaurant in the heart of downtown Telluride is worth the wait. The food was fantastic and very authentic. From appetizers to dessert, every bite was delicious....More
