We have extended our gift card special at both restaurants through Decmber 23rd. Buy $100 worth of gift cards in any denominations and receive a $25 gift card for yourself. Great for last minute holiday gifts and employee rewards.

It is NO-PEEK time again at both restaurants throughout the month of December.  Each time you dine with us in December you will receive TWO 15-50% off discount envelopes – one for each restaurant – to use in January, 2012.

There is still time to book a holiday party at either restaurant.  For Pizzeria Rustica call 719-632-8121.  For TAPAteria call 719-471-TAPA (8272).  You may either order off the menu or we can work with you on a custom menu with wine pairings.
