Great service and the food was very good. Great combinations and choices. Not the best we've ever had but definitely worth a visit.

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.

This was our first time here and it did not disappoint. From the shareable appetizer to the starter, dinner, and fabulous dessert, everything was so delicious. We will definitely be back soon.

Everyone was masked and more protective measures in place! I’m immune compromised, but felt very safe eating there.

Food and service are always great and that night was no exception.

Very charming and cozy place. Love the mountain atmosphere. First time in Boone with family and friends. We definitely will visit again. We order the Shrimp/scallop on vodka sauce and Seafood Fra Daviolo..uff the best with a little kick and calamari friti. Excellent service. Strongly recommend.

This place is not fancy, just an everyday restaurant. We had to reorder an appetizer twice and it still wasn’t what we ordered but we gave up at that point. The meal was good but not remarkable. Probably wouldn’t return next time I’m in the area.

Been coming here for twenty years, whenever I visit Boone. Always consistent great Italian food. Everyone in our party was very happy with the flavor and had great portions, only made me sad as I was too stuffed to have dessert. Good Covid protocols, which I appreciate right now.

We have eaten here many times and it was great. This time, the place was packed, denser than any restaurant we have been in in 8 months. Compared to Stonewall at Banner Elk, this was way too many people. The prices were inflated and the quantity was skimpy. The noise level was so high it drove us out. I doubt if we will ever be back.

Fantastic experience as always. Ricky Pedroni continues on the legacy his father, Peter Pedroni, began almost 40 years ago. He’s has kept what made Casa great and has placed his mark and makes it “greater”. There’s no weakness here, service, atmosphere, food and the total value are unrivaled. Looking forward to getting back.

This place was hitting on every level....food and service. A reasonably priced wine list. Seemed like a family owned restaurant where the owners care deeply about the food and total experience.

Highly recommended.

This restaurant has been in business in Boone for over 30 years. I had not been there in a long time. I found that they are resting on their reputation. The room should be updated. The pictures on the walls are ridiculously old, as are the lighting fixtures. The food was only mediocre for the price. I ordered chicken marsalla and honestly, I could have done better at home. Carrabba's would have been better.

Great food and experience! Felt very safe with current social distancing. Only issue of the night was when we walked in there was no hostess for at least 5 minutes. We had to walk on the floor and ask a server to find someone. It took a little bit longer for her to come out but then we were seated promptly.

Had a reservation - showed up a few mins early. Waited almost 30 mins for our table.
Hostess was very apologetic and gave us a free appetizer.
Waitress very attentive.

For the last several years Casa Rustica has been my favorite local restaurant. This past week was my first visit since the outbreak of Covid 19 and unfortunately the quality of our meals were not up to par. Dishes that we have ordered and loved in the past were very bland. In addition, my favorite alcoholic beverage tasted watered down. I'm not sure why the food quality declined, but I truly don't know if I'll return to find out if it was just an off night for this restaurant.

We had a 7:30 reservation and were seated right away. No one approached us for 20 min. Server was not knowledgeable about drinks or menu items. Appetizer of calamari was good. We ordered Dijon chicken (horrible sauce too sweet and strong), eggplant Parm (all breading no eggplant) and chicken Marsala. Marsala had a shirt black curly hair in it. Server was pretty nonchalant and unapologetic about it. She just asked if we wanted it taken off the bill. We sent the Dijon back also because it was horrible and we had no appetite after the hair. Bill came and we were charged for the sides that came with the meals that were taken off the bill. We will never return . Bad service and bad food.
