    So glad we found this restaurant! My husband and teenage son both ordered a chicken dish (Chicken Marsala and Chicken Parmesan) and said it was the best chicken they ever had! My college son and I both enjoyed our steaks very much. Definitely will return on our next trip to Boone!

    Everything was just “ok” Food was not bad, but not fantastic. Basic Italian food. Very loud in back room and food was very slow to come out. Seems to need some updating inside. In fairness I’ve gone before and had better food.

    Our dinner here was excellent! The food was very good as well as the service. I usually do not order steak in an Italian restaurant but I had read how good it was and decided to order that instead of a pasta dish. It was wonderful- tender and with lots of flavor!! The rest of our party ordered lasagna, shrimp scampi, and salmon. Everyone was very satisfied with their choice. If I was in the area, I would absolutely eat there again!

    Food and service were great. But, we were seated on the mezzanine, which seems to be an overflow space. No ambiance at all. Fortunately we were there with friends and enjoyed our evening despite the lackluster decor.

    I loved this place growing up. Wanted a fancy Italian dinner with friends. It was horrible. I got the garlic and olive oil pasta with the special salmon. Raw garlic!!! It was inedible. The salmon was super dry. Also the app was a joke. A huge plate of melon with four little slices of prosciutto. The bruschetta was tomato sauce with a little bit of cheese. I will not be back.

    Great food, nice wine lousy, service and atmosphere. And they take reservations! Seemed to be an older crowd than the typical crowds in this college town. A friend and I enjoyed the Seafood Fra Diabolo and Shrimp Scampi. The salads and dressings are wonderful too! Definitely will be back!

    My mom and I have been going to Casa rustica since we moved here three years ago. It is our favorite restaurant in the area. All of their food is high-quality and delicious. The portions are always large and we always end up taking half of our meal home for the next day. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and professional and we always have a great time.

    Casa Rustica is always a good choice. I had the Shrimp Scampi and it was delicious. My husband had seafood with vodka sauce and he loved it. The salad was perfect and the beer was cold! Couldn’t complain about anything. Made our reservations on the restaurant website and they were ready for us when we arrived. We will visit again.

    Eggplant was breaded too much. I could only taste the breading and the oil. Disappointed in this dish. Menu stated lightly breaded. It was very crisp due to it being fried in oil. My husband’s order was wrong. He ordered chicken and mushroom Alfredo but was served chicken and shrimp?? I have to say the appetizer was good but not great. Bread and rolls were the best part of the dinner. Water was great lol. Lots of ice. I was expecting a better outcome.

    Could be a charming little place however it was just a little too dimly lit tables too close together for it's together for any sort of private conversation. Servers were great even though they were clearly understaffed. Drinks on specialty list not impressive Fodd was OK to good They were out of components for specials To serve a competed dish

    We made reservations here for my birthday because we have eaten here several times. We were seated promptly and were given a booth as I had requested. Our waiter did a great job in answering questions that we had. The oil and vinegar served with the bread was not mixed with herbs and tasted very bland. The salad was good. The Chicken Marsala had a very thin sauce that had a sweet taste to it. One thing missing at this restaurant is MASHED POTATOES! That’s what we wanted with our Chicken Marsala, but they don’t serve them. The two musicians playing the saxophone and guitar were very talented, but the music was way too loud to have a good conversation.

    We’ve been dining here for years now and it’s always been great. I don’t know what was going on last night, but it wasn’t the same. It was busy as usual, but we’ve never in the past had to wait for literally over an hour to get our entrées. The servers all seemed to be frazzled, and we’re bussing their own tables. Our service was particularly slow from getting our drinks to finally having our entrées served. Also, in the past the staff/server attire was professional looking, not T-shirts Tennis Shoes and leggings. I don’t know when that all changed, perhaps blame it on Covid, but I prefer the more professional attire at this kind of establishment. When we got our bill, our server did thank us for our patience and apologized for the delays and mentioned they comped our desserts, which was nice. We weren’t completely disappointed, and will go back, but just wanted to give an honest opinion about our visit this time.

    Decor in need of an overhaul! It was a busy night granted We both ordered Pasta dishes and waited over an hour and half. Usually never wait but, not many choices in Boone area. We dealt with it after all that the meals was average. Can you screw up Chicken Parm anyway?
