    Expecting a nice evening out to celebrate our anniversary, instead we waited over 45 min to order in a very crowded, very loud packed setting. The food was fine, wait staff inattentive. Seated just a few feet from a table of 4 I can repeat their whole conversation! To top it off they had a dog they were feeding on the floor while I ate. A dog in what is suppose to be a “nice” restaurant was too much - won’t go back!!

    Great food and great service. The dining area could use some updating. Our table was very shaky and on a slant, it wasn’t the base, it was the table top itself. This is our third trip in a row here where food and service was outstanding but the only issue being outdated / broken seats, tables , decor etc….

    Cute little gem in the heart of Boone! Service was amazing (even when having to accommodate for us being later than our reservation was booked for). The manager/host was so helpful and we really appreciate you being patient with us as we had most of our group show up late. Waitress was super friendly, food was delicious, and atmosphere was cute. Lasagna, Eggplant Parm was on point! We will def look to come here again!

    Have not been to this restaurant in years. The food was great! We had veal marsala and chicken picatta. Portions were good. The highlights of the meal were the house dressing and the tirimisu! We unfortunately did not receive our calamari appetizer but we didn't need it, we had plenty of food. It was on the bill but they did remove it. This restaurant is definitely back in date night rotation!

    Overall worked out pretty well…haven’t been to Casa in many years (graduated ASU in ‘89). Quick meal after the game - middle of the road cuisine…nothing fancy, but decent. Our waitress was running hard - great work ethic and did a good job for covering 6-8 tables!

    Must be a new chef. Penne was not hot, less chicken piccata. Asked for extra sauce when ordering…did not arrive on entree. Asked waitress for more.. came back and said it would be 10 minutes. This also is a repeat from our last visit. Not enough sauce although asked for it and again was told 10 additional minutes. Luke Warm waited 20 minutes for bread. Had to ask for EVOO although other diners got some without asking. Very noisy.pasta.

    We love your restaurant and have been coming for years. Our last visit before last night was not very good. The food was very cold, sent back to the kitchen then came back mushy. We decided to give it another try. All 3 of our meals were barely warm. Our waitress was so nice and we had some serious conversations going on amongst ourselves so we did not send the food back to the kitchen this time. The pasta was actually even cold in the middle. We know your quality is far better than this typically so we wanted to share this experience to make you aware.

    My wife and I selected Casa Rustica for our 61st Anniversary dinner. Arriving at 7Pm we left full satisfied with its holistic approach to a comprehensive dining experience. From pre-dinner drinks and and a serving of well-prepared mushrooms we followed with veal saltimbocca (just delicious) and a fine bottle of Bulgarian wine (yes!!). Two hours later we departed following excellent service, soft music and quiet conversations on the periphery. We have come here for dinners by ourselves and with small groups for the past 40 years, and have never been disappointed, ambience, service and restauranteur excellence persist..

    Good menu and wine list. We had an outstanding server. It was a birthday dinner and the complimentary cannoli dessert was wonderful. The saltimbocca was a little too salty, but sauce was fine. Haricots vertes were delicious and fresh.

    Read many reviews and thought this would be a positive experience. Everyone we came in contact with was exceptionally nice which makes this difficult to write. Unfortunately the food was very disappointing. Veal parmesan was tender but not crispy, mushy. Sauce was like pulp, not like any marinara sauce we have had or made at home. Chicken Masala was way too sweet, overwhelming so. Salads were the best part of our meal and house wine decent. For our particular palate we would not go back. Service was excellent our waitress was exceptional.

Everything came out with enough time in between so you didn't feel rushed to eat one thing after another. Our server was fabulous. She was attentive, friendly & knowledge about the menu.

    The Heirloom Caprese Stack was one of the best we have ever had! Had the Wild Salmon special with haricot vert that was very fresh and delicious. Husband had French Onion Soup that was just ok and Veal Parm that was good. The Fried Combo app was just ok. Service very attentive and friendly. Ambiance ok.

    We were in the area celebrating an anniversary trip (#33) and decided on Casa Rustica and we are glad we did. Kelly, our server, was fabulous - attentive and a super personality!! And the food was really good! My wife had the homemade manicotti and she raved about it and I had chicken parm and it was hot and delicious. Oh, the arrancinis we had for our appetizer were good - and unique. Typically arrancini are served with marinara - but here they come with a pesto cream and balsamic drizzle. Everything was hot, delivered in a timely manner and delicious. We even got a free anniversary cannoli on the house (which was also fabulous). Kudos to Kelly and the restaurant staff for making us feel special on a busy night at the restaurant!
