  • "My son chose Casa Rustica for his birthday celebration dinner. We had a wonderful time with great food, excellent service, and a warm friendly atmosphere. He is an App State student and we live out of town. When visiting, Casa Rustica will be one of our new favorite places to dine."

  • "We've been several times before. Food was not as hot as I would have liked. I had filet special and hubby had chicken special. Steak was great but not hot. Hubbie's chicken was nice and a little hotter than my steak. Waiter forgot the wine my husband ordered and food came out very slow. Not sure if it was the server or the kitchen. They did make us the mussels appetizer that is no longer on the menu. Delicious. We've been there before and had outstanding service and quality. It appears they had turned a number of staff. Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come."

  • "We so enjoy the food and service at Casa Rustica. The specials are always great but they have some excellent pasta dishes as well. I'm not a wine expert but their recommendations have always been excellent."

  • "We have always enjoyed eating here. This time the service was very slow. The waiter was good, but it took us almost 40 minutes just to get the salad and about 1 hour and 15 minutes to get the main course. The food was wonderful once we got it. Then we ordered crapes for dessert, they were awful. The crapes were way too thick and we could not even cut them. I spoke with the owner and they took them off the bill."

  • "We have never been let down at Casa Rustica. I tried the veal francese, and was so pleased. The sauce was fresh, not overly rich, just exactly what I was hoping for. The basil vinegarette was quite a surprise as well, lovely, fresh, light. I I usually get the salmon special, but wanted to step put and try the veal, which I never order. I was impressed. We always bring out of town guests to Casa Rustica, it's like coming home."

  • "I've eaten at Casa Rustica many times. When asked about great places to dine, it's one of the first places I recommend. Had friends in from Atlanta: avowed foodies. Having dined often with them, I know they enjoy fine dining in top restaurants, especially Italian cuisine. They were extremely impressed with their dining experience; talked about it all weekend. Food, service, ambience; top notch. Be aware parking can be limited: it's a popular spot. Recommend making reservations on weekends. I was a bit early with a reservation, was seated immediately. Our waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. After paying our check, she made no move to indicate she'd like to free the table, even as customers still arrived. Terrific dining experience!"

  • "We live in Boone and have eaten at Casa Rustica many times over the years, including on 'special occasions'. They have a nice varied menu and offer interesting specials every night. What we most like about this restaurant is its consistency. The food is consistently good and the servers well trained. [ Not surprisingly some of that goes out the window if you plan to dine there on an ASU home football weekend when things can get kind of hectic, of course that can be said of any restaurant in Boone on those weekends!] Casa Rustic doesn't pretend to greatness nor should it. It offers a good to excellent meal at a decent price in a cozy, but not elegant, environment. I am especially fond of their chicken picatta and veal Marsala."

  • "Casa Rustica is a pleasant find in Boone with a Blowing Rock atmosphere. This past time we visited, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and wine selections, and made an excellent recommendation for me from the entrees which I ordered and absolutely loved (salmon with couscous and snowpeas--delectable!). He was also very patient with us and had a very friendly demeanor, was timely and attentive without hovering, even though it was a slower evening for business. Thamks for helping to make our night memorable!"

  • "My husband and I had dinner here last Saturday. I ordered the linguine with clam sauce, it was disgusting! There were so many onions in the sauce, you could barely taste anything else. Truly not an Italian restaurant ...."

  • "Being a local I have frequented Casa Rustica many, many times goin back to when the current operator's parents ran the business. Rick & Liz, the current owners and operators, have taken the restuarant to new and better levels of food and service. Last night we chose to eat only salad and appitizers and brought home leftovers. Their wine list, while not extensive, is excellent with great choices. We will be back -- regularly."

  • "This was our first time in Boone. We discovered Casa Rustica because it was close to our hotel. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next night, but with a reservation. The atmosphere, food and service were wonderful! Matt and Gabe were great servers who were attentive, but not overbearing. We can't wait to come back to Boone and eat at Casa Rustica!"

  • "My husband and I love this place. We live about an hour away so this is our go to restaurant when we want something special. Our latest was for our 10th wedding anniversary. The food is simply outstanding, and greatly complimented by the service and atmosphere. I highly recommend it to everyone."

We were very pleased with our waitress, service and the food. The risotto and black bean soup were exceptional. We will return to your restaurant!"

  • "Casa Rustica has quickly earned its place as my "go to" resturant. Whenever I feel like having a nice meal with friends or a get away with a special date, Casa Rustica always comes through to deliver great service, good food, and a great atmosphere. If you haven't tried it yet, just go and tell them Curtis sent you."

  • "The foid was okay but not great. The bar was much too small if waiting for a table. The sauce was good but not authentic italian."

  • "This was my first time at Casa Rustica, and I came alone. I was able to sit in the bar area at a table with two chairs. At first I was the only one in that section. I am happy that I sat near the bar area, as it was a little dimmer, and I was able to have a great short conversation with the bar tender. Also let me mention that the seats at the tables in the bar area were very comfortable. The server was fantastic, the food was fantastic, and the candy cane martini was wonderful! I definitely want to come back again, but next time I will come with my boyfriend. For me it was a little bit on the pricey side, but it was well worth it. I could not eat all of my food I had half of it left, it was a lot of food."
    Dined on 12/6/2013
  • "Maybe it's just me, but I had heard quite a bit about Casa Rustica and I had fairly high expectations. For italian food, it was not as amazing as it is claimed to be. The environment wasn't as romantic as I expected, and it turned out to be more like an out-of-date family restaurant. And once the bill came around, I decided I wouldn't go back."

  • "Everytime we come to the Boone area, we have to stop by Casa Rustica for dinner. The service and food NEVER disappoints us! This year we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary which I noted when I made the reservation, I asked to sit by the fireplace too. When we arrived, they were waiting for us, they seated us by the fireplace and several people wished us Happy Anniversary! When my favorite desert arrived, which I must have each year, no matter how full I am, I was told it was on the house. Love, love, love this place!!!!"
