    We had reservations for 7, however 2 people could not make it so there was only 5 of us. We were sat at a 4 top with a seat on the end in a major thorough fair of the restaurant near the kitchen and at bottom of stairs rom the upstairs dining area. then we ordered 5 entrees Only 1 entree of 5 was good. 1) ordered not mushrooms and all mushrooms all over it 2) ordered add chicken and came with no chicken 3) steak was so cold it could not even melt the butter on top 4) there was not enough sauce to even cover my pasta to eat. We mention these to the serve and we were just told that the food from the kitchen seems to go down hill after the head chef clocks out at 8:30. Then you should close at 8:30. I deserve to have the same quality food at 9:30 as those who ate there at 7:30. We were trying this place to cater a major event. We will not be using this place for our event . Nor will we return.

    We were seated in the corner by the bar, table was rocking and waiter rarely refilled waters, weren’t able to hear musician over the bartender. Calamari was off tonight over cooked, still edible, however tough, not up to par with the the given price point. Mains, bread, and salad were incredible as always, purchased off of the seafood portion of the menu.

    Saw mixed reviews before dining here. Worked in restaurant industry for many years so was very curious. Service was a little slow for drinks, but overall server was attentive. Cozy dining room. Probably would have enjoyed it more if we weren't the first table right by the door, with lots of people waiting. The food was not as good as I was hoping for. I had the Veal Marsala and it wasn't that it was bad - it was about what I would expect to get in a diner up north, not an Italian restaurant. Wouldn't rave about it. 2 people in our party got the French Onion soup. I didn't have it, but the feedback was that it tasted with onion water...and it looked like that. My Broccoli Cheddar Potato soup was good, but again, not great. There was one person in our party who had a steak and she said that was good, as well as her side dishes. So if we ever went back, I'd stay away from the Italian dishes and order steak.

    We were there on a Saturday night. We had a reservation, so we had no waiting at all. Kinda odd for an Italian restaurant, but they have the best filet mignon in this area! It's incredible. It's a relatively quiet restaurant. Our service was great, perfectly timed, from ordering through dessert (thank you, Megan!). The tiramisu is delicious. Altogether a lovely dinner out.

    Casa Rustica is one of our favorite restaurants in Boone. They are one of the few left from when we moved to the area from California over 30 years ago. Dillion was our server and I can’t say enough about how wonderful he was.

    The food was okay. I probably wouldn't go again. The broccoli soup was good and the mushrooms. The shrimp scampi was meh, a little bland. Olive gardens taste way better and is cheaper. My partners lasagna was okay, again Olive gardenis better and cheaper. The prices were to high considering the bland food and the services was eh. Said it was are first time there and we just got a welcome and they kept running off super quickly to get away from us it seemed. Wasn't the friendliest.

    Boone isn’t really a foodie town, but for the area, it’s about the best Italian you can find. The ambiance is great, so are the drinks and service. Food is just so-so, some dishes better than others (veal is awesome, French onion soup is not). Overall, it’s a good restaurant in the area and we would come back.

    Good ambiance, and a nice layout, and the service was great. They accommodated our 2 service animals which we had in a carriage. They found a safe spot in the corner of the restaurant away from the mainstream traffic. The food was delicious and paced appropriately between dishes. We started with Shrimp and mozzarella sticks for appetizers, both were delicious. Followed by French onion soup which I found a tad salty, but my partner did not. I had the Spinach lasagna and my partner had clams with linguini. Both main meals were good, but not great. The total bill without dessert did have a soda, & cranberry juice with ice came to $78.

    Great little spot. The hostess/ manager was very accommodating when we requested to change our time. Our server was very sweet but it was so busy. We got our apps and salad right away but waited a very long time for our meal. It must have sat out for while bc by the time we got it the pasta was cold. We loved the place and the apps but the meal wasn’t great cold. Not sure where the disconnect was.

    I reserved early for my daughter’s college graduation dinner . Requested a special table , they opened at 5 and there was a line immediately so if there was a special table we didn’t get it . We were waited on promptly but after that I suppose the crowd overwhelmed them and service went down hill. Several of my party ordered pasta including myself, three of our pasta dishes were cold …. Disappointing! Had to ask three times for bread. The bill was exuberant with extra charges for soups and things we were offered and led to believe came with the meal. I won’t go back again . Went here once before and liked it but I have too many choices to put up with all that. We didn’t complain because they were overwhelmed with customers… should have.

    Our server Meghan is top notch. She has the perfect way of describing each dish beyond the menu’s description. She has such a pleasant personality and kept our attention when recommending certain dishes. That’s hard when you have a table of 10, with 8 of the guests being college age males! Well done Meghan!! Food, wine, and atmosphere were perfect. Can’t wait to come back!
