About Pizza Rustica
Pizza Rustica (3908 N. Sheridan Rd., Chicago) is a rustic northern Italian eatery that has been serving inspired, creative, authentic northern Italian cuisine since 2005. At its inception, Pizza Rustica was a small, pizza-focused restaurant, offering the occasional non-pizza blackboard special but demand for Chef Stefano Roman’s delicious food soon exceeded the confines of the storefront space. In 2012, owners Chef Stefano Roman and Juliana Montebello-Roman knew the time was right to expand and relocate Pizza Rustica…across the street. With a more spacious kitchen and dining room but the same supportive neighborhood, Pizza Rustica greatly expanded its menu to include made-to-order standouts from seafood to steak-house quality steaks and pork, chicken or veal to delicious pasta dishes. Juliana focused her expertise on the restaurant’s new beverage program. Today, Pizza Rustica offers a varied selection of world-class craft brews, exquisite wines, premium spirits and original craft cocktails. The simple, delicious and authentic food is complemented by the warm and inviting space that carries a cool neighborhood vibe.
