    We had a great dinner. The wait staff was awesome. Service was a bit slow but they were also slammed. We didn’t care because we were not in a hurry. Food was exceptional.

    Casa Rustica Restaurant is the best Italian restaurant (so far) I have ever dinned in here in US. The food is as delicious as in Italy and I mean it, all well seasoned, garnished, prepared and cooked to perfection. I ordered Chicken Alfredo for my kids despite it wasn’t on the menu and there was no fuss about it, yet served in kids portion and with grilled chicken, all delicious. My husband ordered Filet Mignon which came with sides all delicious as well and finally I ordered Shrimp Scampi and that was the best Shrimp Scampi I have ever had! Not only the shrimps were taken out of their shells (I know that are healthy and rich in lean proteins, yet I don’t like them) but also the meal was very rich in shrimps (so places you get 3-4 shrimps in the meal) and perfectly seasoned. Casa Rustica Restaurant is simply the best!

    So it took us 2 hours to get our food and our server was so non concerned and never checked on us. And barely apologized for the delay in food. A manager never came over. We really think our sever forgot to put our food in. Really I would not recommend this place!!! Definitely won’t return ever!

    Atmosphere warm and inviting. Food was good. One of our meals was like warm. But quality and seasonings were wonderful. Service was a little slow which is understandable for a busy Saturday evening. Waitress was lovely. We will be back.

    Our server was very attentive. The timing of each course was perfect. I had Veal Florentine on a bed of angel hair pasta. It was a generous portion and was delicious. My husband had a Delmonico Ribeye with a risotto. He said it was one of the best that he has had in a long time. We had white Zinfandel with our meal. Since we were celebrating our 29th wedding anniversary, we received a complimentary cannoli-which was also delicious. We also had coffee-it was strong but very tasty. Needless to say we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Our server's name is Allie. She was knowledgeable about each on the menu and gave recommendations for sides. We go to Casa Rustica each year for our anniversary and we have never been disappointed.

    Everything was just “ok” Food was not bad, but not fantastic. Basic Italian food. Very loud in back room and food was very slow to come out. Seems to need some updating inside. In fairness I’ve gone before and had better food.
