South Beach pizzeria offers an authentic slice of northern Italy.. In Short Italians often scoff at the way the Americans have mangled their recipe for pizza. But this is the real deal--no thick, doughy, greasy concoctions here. Instead, Rustica features several delicious, huge slices of gourmet, authentically Tuscan pizza. Spinach and Gorgonzola cheese are in harmony with a bit of olive oil and garlic on a slate of the delicious, crispy dough. There's also four-cheese, arugula and rosemary potato, among others.
Eyes were bigger than the stomach.
Had I not been bordering on starvation, I probably wouldn't have ordered as much pizza as I did. That being said, I don't regret it because I wouldn't have gotten to more than one of their great choices. Be forewarned: a piece of Pizza Rustica pizza is equivalent in mass to about two slices of a regular Papa John's/Pizza Hut large pizza. They have a tasty & innovative selection of pizzas - it's hard to choose just one or two.
