Met friends who came for first time and we all enjoyed it a lot. The meal came before we were through with our salads but the meal was very good.

I would recommend anyone to go to Casa Rustica. It is a nice place to go to for an occasion like a birthday or anniversary. The vibe is soothing and quiet. The food was great and the waitress was really nice!

I am a fan of stuffed mushrooms and these were the best I have ever had. The broccoli soup was hot and very tasty. They added something to give it a bit of added flavor. We found the 6 cheese pasta pockets and grilled salmon to be very tasty. Excellent service. Everything was done on time, yet we never felt rushed. If you want a nice night out with a great dinner, I highly recommend Casa Rustica. ONeof the best.

We love the chicken piccata. Always good! Fresh salad and yummy fresh breads are always excellent as well. On Thursday when we were there, they had live jazz music. Love that addition that only added to the ambiance. Service is always good. Highly recommend.

Was not a good experience. Not a fine dining restaurant but it will do the job if you’re hungry. Steak was not cooked right, food was under seasoned and took over an hour to come out.

We have eaten at Casa Rustica many times, often for birthdays and anniversary's. They never disappoint. The food is always fresh and authentic Italian, they have nightly specials such as steak and seafood and the price is very reasonable for the quality of food. The atmosphere is pleasant, some nights offer live entertainment such as Jazz, but it is in the background and not loud, the décor is nice, log with wood burning fireplace.

We liked everything except our food didn’t have much flavor. My wife had the spinach lasagna and I had the shrimp scampi-both is us thought our meals were just okay because they lacked flavor. Just to be clear the shrimp was fresh, firm and there was enough shrimp but the sauce was lacking.
We would try the restaurant again but order different dishes.

Very disappointed. Food was cold, tasteless, and not Italian!
I must say, the manager did not charge us for the entees, but the server got real testy and practically threw my husband's birthday desert at him. She was very rude after we complained and this just added to an already disappointed meal .
I know Italian food as I am Italian, but this was embarrassing.
Ambiance is more like a cheap steak house with brown paper table covering. Tables so close together we could hear every bite the next table ate.

Excellent service. The food was not as good as previous visits. The pasta was over cooked, and my husband’s seafood dish had a clam that wasn’t opened.

As always the food at Casa Rustica was fantastic. The service was okay but we waited for some time after we got our bread to get silver and napkins. The ambience was horrible as my wife and I were celebrating our 45th anniversary and were seated beside a table of 8 loud and excessiviely noisy women. One guy at the other end of the room even yelled out "could you be a little louder" in jest. You should never seat a small group in with a noisy crowd.

Your place is too close - the tables for us. We live here and love it but only the bar area. I think our waitress was Jenny - blond I think. She was excellent. We will be back but only for the bar area.

Very good service. Bread and entrees (chicken piccata and parmigiana) were excellent. Salad was disappointing, not fresh. Live music was great. Brown paper in lieu of white tablecloths was awful it would be better with just the table unless they are a mess. Overall very good.
