Caffe Rustica

The restaurant is located in a strip mall, so it looks less than exciting from the outside, but give it a chance and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is cozy and comforting even though the seating is tight and it can get rather loud. Rustica fills up quickly starting at about 5:30 p.m. so arrive early or prepare to wait for up to an hour. Start off with the crab cakes. They are roasted to perfection (not fried) and come with a delicious tomato remoulade. If you are looking for a more casual meal, the pizzas are delicious. Even though none of the options are very innovative, they are always well executed. Try the pollo rosemarino—a white pizza with roasted chicken, gorgonzola, olive oil, and garlic. To top the whole thing off, order the crème brulee for dessert.
