Casa Rustica Restaurant
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!
Went to Casa Rustica for my daughter’s birthday. First time visit for everyone. The place was very busy (Saturday night) but the service was great. They had lots of gluten free options which I greatly appreciated. The food was good and arrived in reasonable time considering how busy they were. Very good experience overall.
Second time that we have ate at Casa Rustica. Our server was not the most pleasant, but had fast and accurate service. My fiancé really enjoyed his Pasta with Cacciatore sauce and meatballs. My pasta with vodka sauce and chicken was not up to par. The chicken was charred and the flavor of the sauce did not live up to their usual level of expertise. Overall we enjoyed our experience and will be back (just without the vodka sauce).
Food was excellent, service was great, and it was a truly enjoyable experience.
The food was amazing. Delicious! Service was good and the wine selection was surprising . The special dessert was so GOOD...We went on a Sunday evening in October and it was busy. A very good sign that your meal will be delicious.
Wonderful good, wine and ambiance! We will return.
excellent food / service - a little pricey ...but this is Boone. tiramisu was a great finish .... remember cappuccino comes w/ raw sugar available ...
Food was fabulous, waiter was fabulous and the spinach lasagna...simply Amazing!
Maybe because the tables are so close, the waitress had to talk across or reach across us to either take our order or give something to one of us instead of coming to the left side of each person. Bit it was not done smoothly. Also, when we asked if salad could be Caesar she didn't say extra charge.
She was a very nice person and our food was great. We enjoyed the music once the sax was a little quieter.
Had a reservation but were seated in the bar at a table with folding chairs. I swapped the chairs with those at another table. Only one bread plate on the table. Shared it for our appetizer, then had no bread plate when the rolls were delivered. Lasagna was OK, but lacked something. You should not have to add salt and pepper to lasagna as both my wife and I did. Caprese was good.
Favorite place to eat in Boone. Great service, delicious food and delightful ambience—soft light, and a quiet atmosphere that makes conversation easy while also full of life and happy energy.
This charming restaurant was within a short drive or even walking distance from the Courtyard Marriott. We had a reservation for four at 6:00 pm on Sunday night and were seated promptly. Service is at a relaxed pace, but attentive. Servers help one another when one gets busy. Shrimp with Vodka sauce, marinara with meatballs, salmon and filet mignon were all excellent! We will be back. 2nd time here. We enjoyed both visits immensely!!!
Good atmosphere but with a few large parties, it was very loud.
Simply horrible. This place has gone down hill from the last time we were here years ago. Very low quality/ cleanliness rating as well ( didn’t realize this till after the fact ). I swear I don’t know how it will continue to survive.
6 sloppy greasy water glasses to start at the table. Filthy silverware. Absolutely tasteless food.
We’re northerners , and now from South Charlotte. Our expectations are high. This place is dog sh**. Trust me on this one.
Although they offered a small compensation for greasy glassware, tasteless food and undercooked chicken ( we didn’t ask for any accommodations). I wouldn’t go back here for free. Recommend you don’t go.
We were also surrounded by ignorant locals. I mean real sh** kickers. Clearly making comments about us knowing we were from out of town. There is zero sophistication about them. Bottom feeders.
Don’t know if this will get published but it’s the damn truth and you’ll see how bad this place sux should
You decide to give them tour hard earned money.
Fantastic meal and great staff was so good we went twice😊
For all of the build up I had heard about Casa Rustica I was not impressed. Except for a super great server it was a very ordinary meal. I had the linguine with white clam sauce. I don't know why some restaurants feel the need to serve the clams still in their shell. Like how I know about where babies come from I know where well prepared clams come from and don't need to deal with the shells each time. No zip at all to this choice and the clams had no taste. I was hoping for something special but Casa Rustica didn't deliver.
Food was excellent as usual. Booth was dark and no additional lighting was available. Service was slower than usual, but they had a large crowd that night. Overall very good and will go back again.
Excellent lasagna and wine. Best server too. Ask for Devon!
The food is fabulous. We travel about an hour and half just to eat here! The service was exceptional! We highly recommend Casa Rustcia and we will return on a regular basis.
Food was absolutely amazing, house made salad dressing and fresh pasta and sauces were great!
Chicken Alfredo had chicken that was burned on 1 side. 2 members of our party had this dish. We notified our waiter. He said he would see if he could get more chicken. He didn’t respond that the meal would be remedied so my dad asked for the check and to have the meals removed from bill. When we were all almost finished he gave replacement grilled chicken to one of our party but not to my dad who also had the grilled chicken. Other meals were good. I would certainly try this restaurant again. Too bad 2 members of my family don’t want to!
Food was yummy and I had the salmon special. There were 10 of us and all meals were raved about
Chef Hunter was terrific as always. Server, staff likewise. This visit was during the week, restaurant not jammed like on Saturday me weekends.
Usually excellent, this visit was a tad disappointing. Chef Hunter’s soft shell crabs were amazing as usual. Unfortunately, the salmon was overdone and dry, and the pasta accompaniment was tasteless. We thought about sending it back but chose not to. It was a busy weekend in season.
It is still one of our favorites, and anyplace can have an off ( it wasn’t “bad” ) night. We will still come back often.
Great food. Great service. Highly recommend it. Enjoy!!
Great Italian food!
I hope the woman working at the front desk on the evening of September 14 is paid very well! She was handling all guests as they came in, directing another employee who really seemed to not have very much initiative on their own, stopping by tables to see how everything was and breaking down/setting up tables for larger/smaller parties. In the midst of all that, she still managed to wait til the right table came up for us per my request through Open Table. My husband has the best birthday dinner ever - filet special! We didn't even know about the free cannoli, and oh my goodness it was very good. I had the pasta purses with your pesto cream sauce - so much food! thank you.
We have been coming here for years and always have had a great dinner. The restaurant is beginning to look like it needs a facelift. We had to ask about our waitress after waiting 20 minutes after being seated. Once our waitress came, she was great. Took about 20 minutes for our drinks to be served. Food was good, just didn’t have the feel like it had before. We brought out of town friends and felt we had to apologize for evening.
Personable staff and thereby the service was overtaxed with volume from a Saturday night crowd.
Excellent!🍺🍷🍸, great food and friendly. This restaurant is a must while in Boone.
Romantic dinner with hubby! Atmosphere was pleasant. Food was fresh and perfectly prepared. Large selection to choose from on menu. Staff was courteous
We've been looking for good home cooked style italian restaurant in the area and finally found it! walked in to a cozy casual setting... Service was excellent and menu selection was ample. We had our drink order delivered quickly and soon was the bread selection , accompanied with an olive oil dip with seasonings which weren't over garlicked! Instead fresh & refreshing....We had a chicken cacciatore & chicken parmigiana- both came with house salad and sides of pasta (your choice). The marinara was thick and delicious...my wife's cacciatore she complained was too big! My chicken parm was perfectly prepared in an egg wash... 2 breast portions which weren't at all oily....side penne marinara was great. loved it and will return!
We go there often, are regulars. Food always excellent. This visit was during the week so it was quiet. Service wasn’t bad, but it is usually better.
