I have eaten at a lot of places in the high country and so far, this is the best Italian I have had in town. Highly recommended. Great wine selection and exceptional service.

Food tasted fresh and based on the crowd it was clearly a local favorite. The menu had lots of good choices and the dessert options were extensive.

This was my first visit to Casa Rustica however I do look forward to a second and third visit. The Angel Hair pasta served with a delicious meat sauce and three very large, very, very good meatballs - a perfect choice. Others had the Veal Marsala (rave reviews on that dish also) and a second Angel Hair pasta meal with... More

My favorite Italian restaurant. The veal Marsala & duck leg confit are superb. I usually have to get two deserts--a cannoli & the Grand Marnier crepes. The prices are very reasonable. It is a must if we are in the area.

This restaurant has recently become one of my favorites in Boone! Finding an Italian restaurant that serves gluten-free pasta is a dream come true for me and combining the pasta with the homemade marinara sauce... wow! The variety of menu items could please most all customers. The nightly specials are always interesting and delicious. But the chicken piccata is my... More

This was not my first time at Casa Rustica, certainly will not be my last! Quality Italian food items w/ many options to choose from, primarily traditional Italian meals. The restaurant has a homey feel and built to resemble cabin eating. So for all you lumber Jacks and Jills out there, forget the flapjacks and dig in. Great waiting staff,... More

The service was very good and my wife's New England Clam Chowder was also very good. The beets in the beet salad were a bit too, ah... "al dente" as they say. The egg plant bake had egg plant that had long, long ago passed the crispy stage promised on the menu, with carmelized onions that had not quite made... More

While visiting the area, we happened onto Casa Rustica - and glad we did. The atmosphere is very much in keeping with the area - no red checkered tablecloths here! Just good food and efficient/attentive wait staff. On the excellent recommendation of our waiter, Adam - who was terrific, by the way - we split the evening special beet &... More
