This little ‘pizza parlour’ is an unpretentious eatery set amidst a rather swish open ‘garden’ area surrounded by shops, offices and bordered by the recently built Punna condos, half way up Soi 6, Nimman. There is a trendy pub opposite frequented mainly by young Thais.
Rustica makes no claims for its menu which is simply presented. It seats just 18 people at three benches each for six, with a few places just outside. They will also serve you food and drinks in the garden area and of course offer a take away and delivery service.
There’s little to say about the menu, since they offer only their ‘special pizzas, made with passion’. I can however tell you that they are large, freshly prepared and not over expensive and come in well over a dozen varieties, ranging from the simple ‘classic’ Margherita at just 180 baht up to the fanciest with artichoke hearts and sun dried tomatoes at 290. They have a special Rustica which is multi laden at 260 baht. I tried a fifty- fifty, with a choice of two toppings: one called O-Tuna and the second with anchovies and black olives, which I preferred. My Thai companion opted for the Italian Sausage (220). Neither of us could manage the whole pizza. They were readily packed up and found willing takers back at the ranch.
There drinks menu is slightly unusual: they have a selection of soft drinks and a choice of red or white wine (the white was not kept cold!) and a few beers. Two of these were from Laos – a light and a dark variety- and one was the fancy Erdinger at 165 baht for the large size. I opted for Cheers.Find more details about the restaurant, recommended menu items, map, etc.
