Good food and excellent service!
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???
Delicious food. Very clean. Felt safe dining inside during COVID.
Got in, seemed up to par, clean, Covid compliant, the environment is leaning towards upscale, seems like it’s family run. Was looking forward to the wine selection.
I had a waiter who was not paying much attention to us. He took the order in it’s entirety on his little pad making sure to get it right. I noticed he was being told to help other female servers with their orders and carry their foods while his tables were starting to fall behind. I went to ask where our dinner was because we got the wine and the apps which were very good but 2 tables turned over right next to us and we still haven’t gotten our dinner and my bottle of wine almost gone. I went to ask where the rest of our food was? They came out and said it would be right out. I knew they had the tickets cuz our apps were done and I was looking forward to the meal. More time passed and another table got dinner. I was upset now. I noticed he was the only person of color and I felt like he was being set up to fail. If he’s new why is he helping others and not the other way around. Those girls were flipping their tables and our ticket got put back in the kitchen, it was obvious. I talked to manager again. The owner came out and gave us our meal for free but since it was in a rush it was not good. I had the quickest meal Shrimp Scampi and added seared scallops. They were overcooked. I ended up not eating. I am glad the manager came out and kindly did not make us pay for being forgotten. He did say the team was taking a hit for the new guy and he was sorry for his being new. I really don’t think it was that at all. I think the kitchen should work on all the tickets when they come in and not make this kind kid help others if hes learning. I was upset because it was late and I had no where else to go eat after being at my table for 2 hrs and 45 min. Kudos for management doing the right thing for us but i felt the kid was getting the blame when he shouldn’t have. Gave him a tip anyway.
Birthday celebration for my husband’s 75th! Cannoli was a delicious surprise dessert! Seafood Alfredo was delicious as always.
Had a really good time I took my girlfriend out there for both of our first times being there and loved it
We had a great meal, mushrooms for an appetizer, delicious spaghetti for me and a steak for my wife. We ate every bite, and then we had lemon cheesecake for dessert. Our server did a great job, and the whole staff made us feel comfortable with ta is going on. We will definitely be back.
The food was excellent. We stayed outside until our table was ready. Highly recommend.
Delicious specials and service .
As always the food was a great value and very tasty. Waiter seemed new or maybe a bit 'stretched' (probably due to covid-19 staffing guidelines). Had to remind him a couple of times about drinks, silverware, etc, but very friendly and apologetic. We typically try to come here every time we are in town. So, yes, we recommend it.
Casa Rustica is one of our favorite places to dine. We go there regularly and are always completely satisfied. We highly recommend Casa Rustica, especially on Thursday nights when there is music in the dining room.
We loved Sienna, our waitress, and Brie, her “shadow” who was being trained. Very personable, loved her suggestions for wine and my main course. We weren’t rushed at all, but they were always close by, if we needed anything.
Fabulous dinner and great night out!
Espresso was tepid. Food was otherwise yum as usual. I had the sauteed veal with prosciutto and white wine sauce - yum; get side pasta naked to sop it up! My wife had the seafood and stuffed purses - her favorite.
Food was amazing!! Every single person in our party LOVED their dinner!! Can’t recommend this restaurant enough!
It’s my favorite restaurant for the last 40 years. I love The lasagna
Good variety and food. Really liked the risotto. Will return.
We have been eating here for years, but tonight was the biggest disappointment. The waitress who seated us just sat our menus on the table and walked away without a word. Our waitress that took our order was very pleasant. However, we were seated by the wall filled with wine corks and we witnessed another waitress come sift through them and take 3 out and take them to a table and bottle a customer’s wine with one of the corks. My daughter and I had just been digging through those corks looking at the different ones. No telling how many hands are in there daily. We asked our waitress if this was customary? She said she didn’t do that, but we told the people who’s bottle of wine it went into. With Corona virus and App State has 3 cases mumps going around, I can’t imagine this being sanitary. My
Great place to go for a quiet, enjoyable meal. Menu not as extensive as it could be, but did not have a problem finding something that appealed to me.
The bruchetta appetizer was probably the best I've had anywhere.
I recommend Casa Rustica without reservation.
Great food, great service, great ambience! Haven't been there in years until we went the other night, I'm ready to go back again!
AS ALWAYS THE BEST FOOD EVER WE DRIVE AN HOUR AND A HALF JUST TO ENJOY THE FOOD AND THE QUITE ATMOSPHERE OF THIS FINE ITALIAN RESTAURANT!!!
This was my third trip to Casa Rustica and each time the food has been wonderful. However, this time, the service was awful. We were seated in the bar area, which was not ideal for a nice dinner, but fine. Our service was okay, until the waitress brought us our food. One she dropped our food off, we did not see her for another 45 minutes. We asked her for boxes and the checks, which were to be split evenly. She came back about 15 minutes later to clear the table without boxes or checks. We waited until 15 minutes to go look for her, at which time we were told she was "in the back figuring something out". She finally came back with our checks, which we had waited on for another 30 minutes or so. This was not the best experience.
We love Rustica! Food is always amazing as well as the wait staff!
We loved it! The pasta was amazing and the service was fast. Very romantic and intimate dining room.
Great food and vibe!
The waiter was attentive and helpful. It was a wonderful experience.
Castle rustica as always great… Food, service, and atmosphere
We were seated near the fire place which was very romantic and beautiful. The food was excellent, served promptly, and was reasonable in price. So it was unfortunate that our server didn’t check on us very often, leading to long periods before our water glasses were filled. And the glass cover over the table cloth was not sparkling clean. So there were many high points but a couple minor issues which detracted from the overall experience.
Just ok In every way. Food is fine, not great. The service was not good. It appears that the young waiter had way too many people. He was very slow and forgetful and not attentive to group.
