Casa Rustica Restaurant
Layered Eggplant Bake
Layers of crispy eggplant, fresh spinach, sauted mushrooms, carmalized onions and a blend of cheeses baked to perfection and topped with house made marinara
Every time we visit Boone, this is a must stop for us. Nothing too fancy but just great Italian food. Can’t wait til the next time we’re up that way!
I’ve lived in many cities but this is the best of the best of all the Italian restaurants! I had an Italian aunt and this the real deal! AND! The manager, Christy, is the BEST! MANGIA!
We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated right away. No one approached us for 20 min. Server was not knowledgeable about drinks or menu items. Appetizer of calamari was good. We ordered Dijon chicken (horrible sauce too sweet and strong), eggplant Parm (all breading no eggplant) and chicken Marsala. Marsala had a shirt black curly hair in it. Server was pretty nonchalant and unapologetic about it. She just asked if we wanted it taken off the bill. We sent the Dijon back also because it was horrible and we had no appetite after the hair. Bill came and we were charged for the sides that came with the meals that were taken off the bill. We will never return . Bad service and bad food.
Seated swiftly with reservation, immediate service, fantastic menu and excellent food!
The best lasagna I have ever had and my wife loved her salmon.
Had reservation, seated promptly, was greeted, then waited 40 mins before anyone returned to take our order! This is unusual for this place as we have been many times, food always great!
For a first date it went really well! Food was amazing the drinks were perfect!
Atmosphere and service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. We will definitely go back!
Great dining experience! The seafood was cooked to perfection. The sauces were a delight and did not overwhelm the dish.
The waitstaff were attentive but not hovering.
I will tell my friends traveling to the high country to add Casa Rustica to their dining destination list.
All was good. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Nice place. Food a little pricey, but not bad. Excellent customer service.
Service slow; waitress forgot our drink order; restaurant looks old and dark and in need of serious cleaning. Windows and light fixtures dirty.
This was our first time dining at Casa Rustica and we loved it! Food was excellent and our server was wonderful!
Dimly lit and and waitress was not attentive at all.
Get the Caprese Stack as an appetizer.
Fun unique mixed drinks.
Not as good as we remembered from last year while we stayed in the area.
Shrimp was flavorless. And the veal piccata has too much lemon that dominated the dish.
Seated right away, service came immediately. Food was as expected, delicious. Highly recommend reservations!
The food was AMAZING!!!!!! The atmosphere was nice. Service was great and we will definitely be back!
We come to the mountains every summer and make it a point to eat at the best Italian restaurant in the area
Wonderful dinner celebrating our son’s 16th birthday. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was great. Loved the caprese salad with scallops. The wine selection by the glass could be better. The options were very limited.
Menu was varied, lots of choices of sauces for pasta. Overall an enjoyable meal.
Our food was delicious and the wine recommendation was perfect. Service was also very good. They are social distancing and wearing masks.
Excellent pasta. Hugh servings. Salad OK. Upcharge for too many items (like $2+ for Caesar salad over not-so-good house salad) and only one soup with an extra cost. Would rather pay more than be nickel & dimed to death. They sold us a $11.99 retail bottle of wine for $32. Guess that's to be expected. We probably will not go back.
A group of six dined here on 8/8/20 to celebrate a 40th birthday. We made reservations several weeks in advanced and was seated right away. The service began strong, but fell flat. The wait was abnormally long and there was no apology made. Once the food arrived, everyone agreed it was delicious. However, upon leaving, the server had to ask the table to repeat their orders as she had disposed of the original ticket. It was finally sorted and we left well satiated.
Good food and excellent service!
Had a wonderful dinner here. Great menu choices nicely presented. We had seafood and chicken, and can't wait to go back for the steak and prime rib. Great wine and cocktail list. Service was outstanding with everyone working very diligently to maintain covid 19 protocol.
Truly a surprise and a delightful one. Ambiance was rustic/bare. However, the service was really good and the food AMAZING. Perhaps this was only a surprise to us, coming from out of town, but will make sure we dine there again next time in the area.
Good quality food and good service. Greatly enjoyed.
Always a great meal ! Our go-to place for Italian when in the area.
We had a very good time - my only complaint was my pasta with sausage, peppers and onions only had app 5 small slices of sausage
Casa Rustica is our go-to restaurant for Italian food during our annual visits to Boone. The food and service have remained consistently outstanding during our 6 years of visits. This year there were some accommodations for the virus situation, but we go right in (with a reservation) and enjoyed out usual excellent meal.
Food was the best, the veal piccata was tender and full of flavor, the bruchetta was out of this world. Everything just perfect.
Service was great. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable. Food was out of this world. Best Italian food around. This is the 2nd time we've come and definitely will be back again. It's worth the 2 hour drive.
The seafood alla vodka was very good. Thought our waiter was very attentive and hustled on a busy night. Will definitely be back on our next trip to Boone
We have eaten there many times and this time the food was no where near as good as previous times.
Best Italian food in the high country! Great steaks as well. Wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The manager, Christy Is wonderful! In the wintertime they have a beautiful big fireplace that makes the ambiance really special. We give this restaurant two thumbs up and five stars! They have really interesting and imaginative specials each evening as well.
I grew up in Boone and haven't been to Casa Rustica in quite sometime. We made a reservation and CR had availability for 6 people. Hard to find good Italian food in the south. CR is a hidden gem in Boone. Food was excellent and the service was great! We will be back on our next visit!!!
Mixed reviews from all diners... pasta wasn't fresh as advertised and sauce tasted like it came from a can.
Must have lost our ticket. Wrong soup, wrong salad(entree), wrong dressing, wrong side, bread promised twice and never came. Took over an hour to receive main course. The duck breast was one of the specials and it was perfect. The bruschetta was delicious. Nice wine selection and no problems there. Complimentary dessert was offered but we declined. Bill was reduced to employee discount. We keep trying to have a perfect evening here but something always happens with our order. IDK???
