    No, unless you like glue on cardboard.

        It's kind of a lame-o name.

          I tried it and this is an incredibly accurate description...it's terrible, it may be the worst pizza I have ever had.

            Yeah, Pizza Rustica rules because it's on the way to your dorm...thank God we all live on the way to your dorm.

              Wow, I didn't think Pizza Rustica would bring out love AND hate. To me it's adequate pizza. The value is fair given the thick slices. There's one with proscuitto and egg that I really liked, though the regular cheese slices are somewhat chewy and bland.

              There is one that is about to open in South Miami on Red Road and US1. That's going to be the real test. The South Beach locations do well because there's a lot of tourist and local pedestrians walking around looking for cheap substance. The spot in South Miami is NOT in a pedestrian friendly spot at all, so it's going to have to earn its drive-to traffic.

                Good luck with that! Maybe it was 4am, I was 19, drunk and on my way back to the dorm, it'd be OK. But, I'm not any of those, so it's just not good pizza! Went once to the store in Delray Beach and I haven't been, and never will, go back there again.

                It seems pretty pricey, especially since people describe it as "glue on cardboard"...4.95 for a slice, I think.

                  There is a Pizza Rustica on Duval St. in Key West that I loved b/c of the unique slices they offered. Is this the same Pizza place? I wasn't aware it was a chain.

                      Probably. There's also one on Atlantic in Delray.
