What's the PR referencing? It's our way of paying homage to our roots, Pizza Rustica, a small trattoria opened in 2005 that is now the internationally recognized bistro we are today.
Apologies but we have to close at 9pm this evening, the city is shutting off our street's water for the new construction across the street.
We should be good to go tomorrow!
