I've eaten here several times, and the food and service are always great.
Food took a while to come out but it was good. The bartender was new and very slow. A decent choice
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.
Food was great, but took atleast 20 minutes for our drink order....another 20 for our food order!
Great food, service and ambiance
YES THEY HAVE A GOOD SELECTION OF PLATES, THE AMBIANCE IS AS GOOD AS WE CAN GET WITH ALL THE COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS, FOOD WAS GOOD, WINE SELECTION SO SO,
Such a pleasant dining experience & socially distanced so all in our party were at ease in the situation. Menu was varied & all our meals were excellent !
Great dinner and service. We would go again!
Very good meal. Not crowded (due to Covid) and service was great.
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.
We don’t get to the area often but it is a MUST visit when we do. Already looking forward to next opportunity to return
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.
Every time we visit Boone, this is a must stop for us. Nothing too fancy but just great Italian food. Can’t wait til the next time we’re up that way!
I’ve lived in many cities but this is the best of the best of all the Italian restaurants! I had an Italian aunt and this the real deal! AND! The manager, Christy, is the BEST! MANGIA!
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.
Seated swiftly with reservation, immediate service, fantastic menu and excellent food!
The best lasagna I have ever had and my wife loved her salmon.
Had reservation, seated promptly, was greeted, then waited 40 mins before anyone returned to take our order! This is unusual for this place as we have been many times, food always great!
For a first date it went really well! Food was amazing the drinks were perfect!
The back room dining area is too loud. The ambiance wasn’t what I expected.
Atmosphere and service was excellent and the food was phenomenal. We will definitely go back!
Great experience. Food is excellent
Great dining experience! The seafood was cooked to perfection. The sauces were a delight and did not overwhelm the dish.
The waitstaff were attentive but not hovering.
I will tell my friends traveling to the high country to add Casa Rustica to their dining destination list.
All was good. ooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Nice place. Food a little pricey, but not bad. Excellent customer service.
Service slow; waitress forgot our drink order; restaurant looks old and dark and in need of serious cleaning. Windows and light fixtures dirty.
This was our first time dining at Casa Rustica and we loved it! Food was excellent and our server was wonderful!
Dimly lit and and waitress was not attentive at all.
Get the Caprese Stack as an appetizer.
Fun unique mixed drinks.
Not as good as we remembered from last year while we stayed in the area.
Shrimp was flavorless. And the veal piccata has too much lemon that dominated the dish.
Seated right away, service came immediately. Food was as expected, delicious. Highly recommend reservations!
The food was AMAZING!!!!!! The atmosphere was nice. Service was great and we will definitely be back!
We come to the mountains every summer and make it a point to eat at the best Italian restaurant in the area
Wonderful dinner celebrating our son’s 16th birthday. Our waiter was very attentive. The food was great. Loved the caprese salad with scallops. The wine selection by the glass could be better. The options were very limited.
