We always have pretty good food at Rustica. I asked to be by the fireplace and was disappointed that it was not lit. It was a cool evening and a fire would've made the atmosphere more pleasant. Our server was ok, however when pouring wine he spilled some and made no effort to wipe it up. We had to ask a busboy for a napkin to take care of it ourselves. Overall, the food was good and a good temperature. We will go again.

We celebrated an 80th birthday party at the restaurant and I asked for a "special" birthday dessert which was tiramisu - the entire meal was wonderful and our waitress could not have
been any more cordial and pleasing. Thank you for creating a special event for my special
person. We can't wait to come back!!

The service was amazing, our waitress Dakota was wonderful. She took excellent care of us, kept or glasses full and perfect timing between plates. The desserts were over the top delicious. The food was equal to the service. New York strip cooked perfectly, seasonal veggies cooked tender and seasoned perfectly.

I'm not a huge Italian food fan, but this place changed my mind. We went on a whim - unsure of where we should go for dinner. The Seafood & Purses dinner was FANTASTIC. The spinach salad was a wonderful starter. Service was so good - server and hostess both were so helpful and friendly. Not a pretentious place at all - feels very comfortable and welcoming. We truly had a wonderful night. Now a favorite of ours when we travel to our vacation home!

An early (5:30pm) reservation turned into a rather extended dining experience due to a long wait on the serving of entrées. Wine and an appetizer were served very quickly. Wine was reasonably priced and very tasty. Fried calamari was tender and the side marinara was very light. Our two veal entrées were delicious (although my wife said hers was kind of cold) and the side of broccoli rabe was cooked to perfection. Again, bringing the entrées just required a reminder to our waiter after about 20 mins from the time the appetizer plates were taken away.

This is an authentic Italian restaurant. Its as close to being in Italy food wise that I have eaten since I was last in New York.

My experience at Casa Rustica was all-around excellent. The food was pricey, but well worth it. I got the seafood with cheese purses and both the scallops and shrimp were cooked to perfection with a blend of flavors that truly treated my taste buds. My girlfriend got the chicken Marsala, which was also delightful. The service was incredible... some of the best in Boone in my opinion. Overall, my girlfriend and I decided that this was one of the best restaurant experiences we’ve had together. Keep up the good work.

This was a night out for my wife and I to celebrate Valentines Day. Everything from arrival to departure was very well done. Even with the fully booked evening, things were well organized and smooth running. The service was excellent and nothing requested was a problem. Food arrived in a timely manner and everything was very well prepared and tasty.

My only recommendation would be for the bartender to learn how to properly prepare a very dry vodka martini with olives. That doesn’t mean add olive juice to the Cocktail!

I usually enjoy this restaurant. The meal (lasagna) was fair. My husbands lasagna was burnt on bottom and our meatballs were burnt and over cooked. Also was a bit put out they charge to split a meal. My past experiences have been good so maybe kitchen had an off night. Will give them another opportunity

Our server Katie was awesome! The food was delicious. The only thing I could even find to mention could be better was not having a cost to upgrade for different sauce, but loved that you got a soup or salad with your meal. Spaghetti with meat sauce was delicious!

We were excited and felt things were off to a good start - bread and dipping sauce very good, etc. Restaurant was crowded, service was a little delayed - but not unbearable. Lower rating because several of our entrees in our party of 8 were cold.

We are locals and have been several times. Appeared to be a lot of tourists dining there making the restaurant busier than usual. Service was slower than we've ever experienced (almost 15 minutes before she initially came by the table, long waits for beverage/bread refills, etc.). Food was great as usual except for frozen butter! All staff are friendly and accommodating.
