While you might think of pizza and beer as more of a dorm room staple than the cornerstone of the menu at an upscale restaurant, Rustico in Arlington is out to change your mind. You’ll find upwards of forty beers on tap, and if you’re hungry, the wood-fired pizzas are the stars of the show, from the straight-forward pepperoni to house specialties like the pumpkin fondue pie.
Everything at Rustico is made from scratch, and the kitchen takes pride in producing crispy, golden crusts time after time. Outside of pizza and beer, Yelp reviewers recommend various snack-style appetizers like deep-fried deviled eggs, carrot hummus, and crispy risotto tots either as a starter or as a shareable plate. Whatever you order, you’ll enjoy it at the bar, or in a seat by the roaring fireplace in the center of the restaurant.
