About this Business
From Our Editors
Dough leaps from chefs' hands and pirouettes in midair before donning Rustico Pizzeria's slew of fresh toppings such as pine nuts, taleggio cheese, and eggplant, with gluten-free pizza and pasta available upon request. The menu includes a variety of small and large plate options, and pastas arrive at tables draped in an array of slow-stewed sauces. A rustic dining room is decked with brick walls, hardwood floors, and sturdy chandeliers. Outside, a wooden patio affords pristine views of the Milwaukee River, and an ideal station from which to christen passing ships with bottles from the Italian wine list.
