Casa Rustica is one of our favorite restaurants, especially on Thursday nights when there is music in the dining room. Food and service are always outstanding.

Excited to visit for the first time while on vacation. Have been by the restaurant in years past. Made reservations for a date night out. Placed upstairs in the corner in front of a window air conditioner blowing cold air in October. Below satisfied for ambience. A Musician played downstairs. Couldn’t enjoy this experience due to be placed out of the way. Not sure why you make reservations to receive a table such as this. Light out above table. I guess the seating was for overflow but again, reservations were made ahead of time. Food was excellent though and the server was really nice.

We're still trying to figure out the disconnect between the rating on this establishment and our experience.

From being met with the ridiculous (and just shy of rude) sign plastered on the door with mask commands, only to be standing with 17 (!) other masked guests in a tiny vestibule two feet from tables where diners sat at tables two feet apart from each other sans masks, the entire evening was baffling.

We sat with our coats on as a heavy draft from above was never addressed. Emma, a new server was warm and friendly and did everything she could to make our evening enjoyable. While the brown waxed paper on the tables may be easier to clean, it felt more appropriate for a BBQ joint.

Had Emma been able to get our entrees warm, they would have been so much better!

The vodka sauce is flavorful and creamy, but was so cool it had to be sent back. It arrived still chilly the second round. I don't know if the pan used to rewarm it was cold, or it was simply put in a clean bowl, but it never got warm and the pasta was overcooked and mushy from the beginning. Guests at the next table had the same problem.

Salad greens were fresh, but the chopped tomato on top was past its prime. The Ceasar salad was well, ordinary.

The zabaglione dessert was odd. Warm and pourable in a parfait glass and topped with canned whipped topping, it fell flat. Fresh fruit under a spoonful of the zabaglione would have made a much nicer dessert. Unfortunately, the cheesecake lacked flavor.

After driving over an hour to get to the restaurant, it was a HUGE disappointment and it's unlikely we'll return. Sadly, it's a missed opportunity in many ways.

An added plus was the soft Jazz on Thursday night.

We were pleased with food and service , however, we had made a special reservation for our anniversary and our seating was at a tiny table in a between two very noisy large groups which really dampened the ambiance.

It was absolutely unbelievable that when we showed up for our reservation, after traveling up from Florida that the place was locked and completely dark inside. It would have been nice to know that the restaurant was not open. Will not earn our business in the future.

I do not like to write bad reviews for any business, but the food at Casa Rustica was very underwhelming. I had veal piccata. The sauce was very tart, and the veal was extremely tough. I think it must have been microwaved. My husband had lasagna, which was not that great. Both dishes were semi warm when brought to us. The wait service was excellent, however. We were very disappointed.

Great food. Great service. Jack was very attentive and offered samples of wines before we chose one. We’d request him every time if we could!
Noise level was louder than we prefer though. We went early in hopes of avoiding some of the bigger groups that are often very chatty, but even at 5:15, it was kind of loud. Maybe we’ll try and go on weeknights instead.
Overall, Casa is still our favorite “go-to” for awesome Italian food!

I am a fan of stuffed mushrooms and these were the best I have ever had. The broccoli soup was hot and very tasty. They added something to give it a bit of added flavor. We found the 6 cheese pasta pockets and grilled salmon to be very tasty. Excellent service. Everything was done on time, yet we never felt rushed. If you want a nice night out with a great dinner, I highly recommend Casa Rustica. ONeof the best.

We love the chicken piccata. Always good! Fresh salad and yummy fresh breads are always excellent as well. On Thursday when we were there, they had live jazz music. Love that addition that only added to the ambiance. Service is always good. Highly recommend.
