Although the paper that was covering the table was not a nice experience, the food was STELLAR. The pace of service was perfect, the server cordial, and the variety of offerings was wide. Not a "dress-up" place for dinner ... too bad, as all the other elements would support that, totally!

The food want very good. The server kept forgetting things we ask for. Example brings bread and no butter. When ask she never brought it. Just not a good experience. I would recommend. The food was very good either. Very Bland food.

Had a great time at restaurant, appetizer was delicious. Main course could use a little more seasoning but nothing too bad. I had great service from our server. I thought the ambiance would be a little nicer but the paper napkin and table cloth showed me different.

My first steak was a charcoal briquette. The second one was excellent and the asparagus was done perfectly. the sauce on my stake was too salty for me, so I scrapped most of it off. I still had the very good flavor of the sauce but it was no longer overpoweringly salty. I was unhappy with our table. T felt like I was in a cave. Inadequate lighting at that specific table. Overall a good experience for me, but my wife was overjoyed with her meal and since it was her birthday, her dessert was free!

We enjoyed a girls night out there, and started off with the wonderful bruschetta. Then we enjoyed an awesome chicken marsala for our entree. For dessert I had the best tiramisu I’ve ever ate in my life!! Along with a to DIE FOR Tira Misu Martini!
Highly recommend

Our family of five really enjoyed our dinner at Casa Rustica. We had been meaning to go there for a couple years and we finally made it. Very tasty food and our waiter was very attentive. Entrees were great, appetizers were awesome (calamari and arancini), bread was delicious. We will definitely go back when we are in the mood for Italian food.

28th Anniversary. 1st time visiting for me. We’ve lived in the area for 25 years.
Great server (Conor). All employees wore masks appropriately.
Restaurant called back to accept changes in reservation (changed from 2 people to 3 people). Slightly bummed that the online reservations asked if the event was for anything special, but no recognition of our anniversary during the dining experience.
Nice experience, good selection for vegetarians. A lot of food. Could easily split entrees w/ someone (up charge for this).
In-person menu was much more vague than the online menu, so I’m glad I’d downloaded the Open Table app to view the menu before visiting.
Husband ordered spaghetti w/ meatballs. Would prefer meatballs w/o veal.. ? Ick. That wasn’t listed on the in-person menu but was online.
My daughter ordered the Six-Cheese Pasta Purse. Plenty left over for another meal. I ordered fettuccine w/ the cacciatore sauce (onions and mushrooms) and added primavera vegetables. Again, PLENTY left over. Slightly spicy?
We also ordered the appetizer of Asiago Pimento dip. Very good!
Overall experience was great. Total bill for three people, two glasses of wine, two beers, one tea, = $105. (Not including tip).
Will definitely visit again.
Happy New Year!

Good Italian food and complementary wine pairings in a rustic lodge setting. Family friendly and the noise level was reflective of that. Come later if you want to enjoy a more intimate experience. Server was great. Parking, a little bit more trying.

We read a few negative reviews but decided to try the restaurant anyway and were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, server was attentive and our wait was only a few minutes. We would definitely come here again.

We had a reservation and It took over an hour to get food after being seated.
My veal was undercooked and my wife’s salmon was over cooked.
We did get a free desert but it was in a Togo box
Due to COVID the restaurant was way too crowded, and we thought about leaving.
Wish we had left!
Poor all around!

Very bad service “Briana was our server” we had to ask twice someone else to bring drinks. Briana did not knew the menu so she was not helpfulI. Food was ok my older son asked for a Fillet Mignon that came out 45 min later and on a to go box our waitress thought that was funny. The restaurant did not end up charging us for the stake. Over all experience was not the best. i would think twice to go back to Casa Rústica

I really hate to give this restaurant a bad review as all are struggling with Covid issues but I have been going here for almost 3 years and it’s always been at least good to excellent. Last week the food was not warm. Almost everyone thought their entree was less than stellar. My husband ordered manicotti, a dish I have ordered many times there. It usually comes in a little boat dish and the manicotti is covered with sauce and cheese. His came on a plate. The manicotti were barely covered with any marinara and no cheese. They looked like they were fried and resembled two starved burritos. I can no longer recommend this restaurant until the standards it once had are put back.

We often dine at Casa Rustica due to location near where we stay when we are in the area. This time we made a reservation due to COVID. Our seating location was excellent, service was outstanding and we never had to ask for anything. Food is always consistent, tables were adequately spaced due to covid restrictions. It was a very nice dining experience!

We requested a table by the fireplace and that is exactly where we were seated ! The restaurant is a log cabin and was just beautiful. Everything we ordered was delicious and the portions were very large. We were pleasantly surprised when we received our bill since it was half of what we would have paid anywhere else. We will surely return when in the Boone area.
