Casa Rustica Restaurant
Need to book at 4:00 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
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.
This was our first time at Casa Rustica. There were four of us(2 couples). The food was awesome with generous portions. Service was great too. We sat across from the fireplace which made the experience even better! There is a full bar and a nice complement of local beers including some on tap. This is a great place! Try it you will not be disappointed! We will be back!
This place is the real deal Italian, homemade pasta, delicious!!!!
Best Italian food ever. Will return soon. Pleasant staff
Good food. Nice, quiet ambience for Valentines dinner.
Our favorite restaurant that we have been going to almost since they opened. Love the atmosphere and the food! The chicken saltimbocca and the piatto di mare were fabulous! Got the triple chocolate cheesecake for dessert and it was awesome. Both the owner and the hostess checked on us even though it was packed for Valentine's Day.
A gem in Boone, NC! We had been here before and were amazed how well they handled the group of about 20 - all served nearly simultaneously and each dish was raved about. This time it was just the two of us. We asked for a table near the fireplace in advance, and enjoyed a delicious meal in a cosy setting. My salmon oscar had a generous helping of lump crabmeat, with a nice crispy exterior and moist interior on the salmon. My husband's pasta special had plentiful seafood and fresh, tasty pasta. We will be back!
We got engaged here 25 yrs ago
Although they had another full room people were crammed into one room. There was a large group behind our table every time someone passed between the two tables the bumped my daughter or husband. We marked that we were coming for a birthday celebration. No acknowledgement at all by anyone. Most expensive food of our entire trip yet it was everyone’s least favorite.
Great birthday dinner with my family. We love Casa!
Great restaurant.Love the log cabin building. Excellent food.
Never disappointed when we eat here. Fresh delicious food. Friendly casual atmosphere with great service.
Always a great night out; outstanding food with something for everyone on the menu
Our meal was better than snuff but not as dusty.
Great food excellent service
The food was not good - the penne vodka and chicken parm was sub-par. The server was lovely.
Always a good option when visiting the area. Very affordable and plenty of food.
Our favorite restaurant in Boone!!! Always so accommodating. Warm and comfortable atmosphere. Servers are always super nice. Reliably good food. The pasta purses with seafood and the steaks are my favorites!! We almost always go to Casa Rustica when in the mountains.
Cada Rustica is one of the reasons we return to Boone, NC. Delicious food, outstanding service!
Overall, very good. I had pasta with primavera and they were quite scimpy in the veggies. I think there were about 2-3 slices of mushroom (probably not even a whole mushroom). They charged us for soup which was said to be included in the meal. We enjoyed ourselves but there were just a few details that could be improved upon
My husband and I were in the area checking out potential retirement home purchases. When on these types of travels always looking for the local restaurants to check out the food and people. This does not disappoint. I couldn't resist ordering the duck and it was delicious. Even with the crowded restaurant the staff was attentive and pleasant.
First of all, we were seated in a very tight area (upstairs) next to a large table with adults at one end and the children closest to us. The adults were focused on their drinks and ignoring the children who were being children. No relaxed dining for us! Our waitress was responsible for that table and ours. She was not able to tell anything about the wine, except which was most popular. My husband ordered the Saltimbocca Piemontese with veal and angel hair pasta, which he really enjoyed. I had the Francese with veal and fettuccine. In my opinion, the sauce overwhelmed the pasta and I do not think the mushrooms were fresh. The salad was mostly spring mix lettuce with a few croutons , carrot, and chopped tomato. Overall, just a fair dining experience when compared to other Italian restaurants I eaten.
We had a reservation for 7:30 pm on December 26, 2019. We arrived 10 minutes early however we were not seated until 7:40 pm. We were sat at the first table from the door which means we were in direct view of the cash register, hostess and manager, keep that in mind. Our waitress, Sabrina, appeared to have four tables in the area of where we were seated, which was overwhelming her and should have been recognized by the manager. After several minutes at the table, our waitress came over and ask for our drink order. As soon as we gave our drinks, she walked off. We were going to order an appetizer but we didn’t give us a chance. She sat our drinks down and was gone again without giving us a chance to order an appetizer. When the waitress brought our bread to the table, I ask for napkins due to there was non on the table. She didn’t return with the napkins. Several minutes later she delivered our salads, napkins were mentioned again without any reaction. While eating the salad I left the table and went directly to the manager and said, “I am tired of asking, can you please give me a napkin.” I would think that someone making a statement would give me a hint that I need check into something with that table... No change in customer service. We repeatedly ran out of drink. When our entrees arrived my lasagna was cold however I am guessing the kitchen staff thought it was proper to put really hot sauce on it so I wouldn’t notice. My wife had ordered cheese ravioli which had a glaze on top from where it had sat in the kitchen for so long and was cold. After we finished our meal, the waitress delivered our bill. The bill showed $51.24. We have been eating at Casa Rustica for many years. This was absolutely the worse experience we have ever had. I will not pay $25 a person for cold food and poor customer service. Last but not least pay attention to sanitation grade which is posted in the lobby (91.5).
The food and service was excellent* The atmosphere was very nice with a large fireplace and a log cabin style. We dined there for our 40th anniversary. We will be back again and highly recommend this restaurant!!!!

Service was top notch. Best fried calamari i have had in a long time. Shrimp/crab/scallop pasta dish lacked any discernible flavor though shrimp and scallops were good. Cannoli was excellent.
Casa Rustica is my #1 stop in Boone for dinner! Love the chicken Alfredo.
Certainly one of the premier restaurants in the High Country.
The food was amazing! Great experience.
Casa Rustica is a great local find. We love dining here when visiting Boone. Reservations definitely recommended.
First time at this restaurant. Nice cozy interior. We were surrounded by tables with really loud people so difficult to have a conversation. Food was OK. One in our party had the salmon special and it was very over-cooked. The others had traditional pasta dishes which were fine. The wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Overall a nice evening.
We have been coming here for 4 years and have enjoyed our meal every time.
Overall it was a good experience- our waiter was excellent- he made the entire evening better. We sat by the fire - the atmosphere was good. Four of us eating, all thought the food was average, nothing exceptional. But we had a fun evening and will go back.
Quaint Italian restaurant with a wonderful selection of
Solid, reliably good food! Comfortable place for very good food.
My family and I have been coming to Valle Crucis for family vacation for 20+ years. Our one restaurant that we HAVE to go to is Casa Rustica. I haven’t been in 10 years, due to a work schedule. But my fiancée and I came up here for our anniversary and I was so excited to take her there for the first time. This was also the day we got engaged (around lunch time), and the good was still soooooo good from what I remembered 10 years ago. This is by far, our favorite restaurant. We will be back for years to come.
Had excellent service. Waitress was knowledgeable of the menu, made great suggestions. She was friendly and prompt with her service, checked on us for anything extra. The food was very good, I highly r ed commend this restaurant.
Amazing Italian food! Casa Rustica has been a staple in Boone for years and now I know why. I had the veal in a white wine sauce over angel hair pasta. Delicious! It was capped off by pumpkin pie cheesecake. We'll definitely be back!
