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.

Great food! We went on Valentine’s Day so it was very busy and a bit loud but we enjoyed our experience. I would recommend it to a friend!

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!

First time here and we really enjoyed it, just wish our waitress remembered to bring us breadsticks! We've heard great things and we're really looking forward to trying them :(

We went there for Valentine’s Day and we had our one year old daughter they were amazing and very accommodating and no one seemed to mind having a one year talking and playing. They staff was very kind and made sure we were taking care of and our daughter was too you don’t get that very often at fancy restaurants. Will go back again

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.
