I have been going to PR Italian Bistro (formerly Pizza Rustica) for years. They have always served more than pizza (they do have great pizza) but they have really stepped up the non-pizza menu and it is great. I had a pheasant pasta last night...More

Super friendly service, great beer selection and welcoming regulars. We feel at home here. Loved the pizza and the rotating chalkboard specials. Last night we enjoyed an interesting and delicious take on gumbo. It is not fine dining, just good creative food priced well.
