THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pizza Rustica Cafe Restaurant Review

: Local favorite Pizza Rustica Café satisfies diners in two ways. Downstairs, it loads its huge pizzas with an array of interesting toppings, from house-made sausage and rotisserie chicken to roasted eggplant, marinated artichokes and all the usual suspects. But the lively upstairs Conga Lounge, a retro tiki haven, is a worthwhile venue in itself, best known for tropically-garnished island drinks. The lounge also serves the pizza menu and well-portioned nibbles after hours to the backdrop of occasional DJ beats, and a party can be had with the likes of ceviche and spicy chicken wings, best chased with a sweet and potent scorpion or a Gilligan's Island, the house special cocktail. Pizza toppings are divided into two types: traditional (margherita, salsiccia, and other familiar old-timers) and gourmet (basil-olive Provençal, eggplant-feta Hellenic, etc.).
