Rustico Restaurant Review

: Stone-fired pizza---some of it inventive---is the specialty at Rustico. The Napoletana is a favorite; zesty tomato sauce, fresh mozzarella, anchovy filets and chilies add to its zing. For something unusual, try the fried olives, which are pitted, encased in a wisp of breading and served in a martini glass with a side of marinara. The potato pizza is another unique choice, topped with sliced potato, rosemary and prosciutto. Of course, you can also design your own pie. The cozy, narrow space is two stories high with bars on both floors and outdoor seating overlooking the Milwaukee River.
