Orillia Restaurant You Don’t Want to Miss Rustica Pizza Vino

Summers in Orillia Ontario has become a yearly tradition for me. Whether I head up for the day or a weekend girlfriend’s getaway, I’m always on the hunt for the best Orillia restaurants. Late last year I had a delicious lunch on the patio of Rustica Pizza Vino Orillia, and I have to share all the details.

Located on Mississaga Street, known as Downtown Orillia’s main street, Rustica Pizza Vino is very easy to get to. I’ve walked by this beautiful patio so many times during my many visits. It always struck me as a great place to eat.

Rustica Pizza Vino Menu

The best way to describe the food and menu at Rustica Pizza Vino is authentic Italian. The kind of delicacies that generations of Italian mothers perfected. Even a simple tomato drizzled in balsamic was divine.

I can still remember the cheesy Arancini which is arborio rice stuffed with Romano, grana padano and aged cheddar, it is breaded and fried and served in tomato sauce. It was heaven on a plate.

The pizzas are cooked in their wood-fired oven, and they have an impressive selection of Italian favourites to choose from including Margherita, Quattro Formaggio, prosciutto and more.

I wanted to say no to dessert as we were already stuffed, but everything tasted so good, I thought how could I write a post about this place and not include some dessert offerings.

Rustica Pizza Vino Décor and Vibe

On a summer weekday for an early lunch, the restaurant was not as full, but it has a lovely vibe. Tables and booths line up the restaurant which fills up quickly. When we arrived at lunch, the patio was empty, and it quickly filled up around us.

It seems that every time I visit Orillia Ontario I find a new favourite spot. Now I have a favourite patio too. Rustica Pizza Vino won’t disappoint on a summer day or evening, just make sure you arrive hungry!
