I was very disappointed with the food quality. The cheese sticks were over microwaved and tasted like yesterday’s leftovers. My chicken Frances was not good. The mushrooms tasted like they were out of a can and the sauce was yucky. It was my birthday celebration and I was so disappointed

FABULOUS !!!!
Our waiter was EXCELLENT and very attentive! I had the cheese ravioli with meat sauce - it was PERFECT!
My husband loves the veal parmigiana and he said it was the best he’s EVER had .
Our guests had the Mediterranean seafood pasta and the seafood with linguine pasta . They both ate heartedly and still had plenty to take home for the next day.
Our drinks were great & included grey goose & tonic , the lander Jenkins Chardonnay & a wonderful bottle of red wine . The food , service and surroundings are so enjoyable and we can’t wait to come again . Oh , the hostess was very nice too .

The food was awful. The salad was an up charge. The chicken Alfredo was so garlicky and my chicken was charred. I will not be going back.

We have eaten here many times but we brought new diners with us this time. They were out of several items we wanted, it took a long time to get our food to the table but it was hot and fresh. One item was forgotten and had to be requested after the meal was started. The server was very polite and accommodating. I don’t think our friends were impressed especially when we were squeezed into a booth that should have fit 2!

Half of us complained about the food. Over cooked scallops, meat sauce very bland and not enough. Blue cheese potatoe soup was pretty bad.

We had the special fried oysters as an app and perfectly done. Our main courses of veal and chicken were good and immense. Serious amount of food. Every portion was outsized.

The food is priced fairly, especially when compared to other local Italian restaurants. Very personalized service, servers seem to have about 3-5 tables. Love the bread, and all of the sauce options. Our family has a variety of food diets, from vegan to vegetarian to meat-eaters, and everyone would have a choice here.

Waitress was very quite and unfriendlily. The restaurant was almost too quite, the table was covered in a piece of paper, I understand the concern of the pandemic and germs but for such a "nice" restaurant I would hope they could simply disinfect the tables after we left. I ordered the Seafood alfredo and I was extremely disappointed, I am by no means a lover of pasta but I know good food when I have it. The scallops were overcooked and unseasoned. The pasta was too thick and swimming in alfredo sauce. All of it was bland and gross. My partner ordered the linguini with clam sauce, it was so bad she only took three bites. The clams tasted old and again the pasta was swimming in sauce. The appetizers we ordered were better than the entrees but not great. The calamari was something you could find at any Italian place. The mozzarella sticks were worse than the TGI Fridays microwave mozzarella sticks. I will not be returning here and I don't recommend it.

I make it a point to stop by Casa Rustica anytime I find myself in Boone. Consistent quality, and great staff. Kristi always makes sure we have the perfect table, and Chef Hunter went above and beyond on my special dinner request.

Good experience, friendly staff. Not a fine dining restaurant but a good all around Italian restaurant. We had calamari as an appetizer - well done. The basil dressing they make for the salad is very good! Try it... The pasta dishes are pretty big, so bring your appetite.
All and all - good experience.

We had very low expectations going into Casa Rustica, since it is in a fairly humble-looking building right on 105. However, we were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food. Honestly, it was some of the best Italian food we have ever eaten--and we have been to Italy several times. I had spinach lasagna, and my husband had chicken cacciatore. Both were excellent. The atmosphere is more "family style" than "date night," so if you're looking for an intimate Italian restaurant with ambient lighting and candles, you will be disappointed. However, the food more than makes up for the down-home vibe. Highly recommend.

It was okay. It's not authentic Italian food. The lasagna I had was crisp and appeared burned on top. The server I had was nice. I more than likely won't go back.

Usually we don’t care for music at a restaurant, but the guitar player was Superb. He played his music in a low tone, and he was great!
