Somewhere special to go

Casa Rustica offers excellent Italian food - probably among the best in Boone. It is a little pricier than others of our favorite restaurants, and that is why we go there for our special occasions. We are never dissapointed.

Our hotel recommended Casa Rustica for a nice sit down dinner for the family. All their food is homemade there in the restaurant. The homemade pasta was to die for and we couldn't get enough of their meatballs. We would definitely eat there again if we were in the Boone Area.

When my boyfriend, Jacob, told me to, "put on a dress, we're going to dinner," Casa Rustica was exactly the atmosphere I hoped for. Casa Rustica's ambient lighting and black-slacked wait staff make you feel like you are about to get the real thing--the Italian-American cuisine that Olive Garden never gave you. Unfortunately, romantic atmosphere is the most enjoyable part... More

Friend had recommended this restaurant, so I ate when I was in Boone. Was coming back from skiing and stopped in. Waited just a few minutes, then was seated. Very Quaint atmosphere, and food was GREAT. Would definitely recommend! I am sure I will go back next time I am in Boone...

After a day hiking the trails near Boone and Blowing Rock, we stopped in for dinner and some wine. The service was great, the atmosphere relaxing and the food was exactly what we were looking for. While it is not like a big city fancy Italian restaurant, the mountain atmosphere was perfect, the place was relaxing, and the food was... More

My husband & I were trying to decide where to eat in Boone & we read some reviews on Trip Advisor & decided on Casa Rustica. The other reviewers were spot on about how great this restaurant is & how delicious the food is. We started out with a fried calamari appetizer. The breading was light & perfectly fried -... More

The appearance of the restaurant wasn't reassuring when we entered but the friendliness of the people who work there overcame these reservations. We ordered the shrimp cocktail. The sauce was delicious; the shrimp were nice and big although my hubby thought they were frozen. Still good! For entrees we ordered piccata chicken (perfect) and the Dijon chicken (very good). You... More

Odd combination of log-cabin and somewhat faded Italian-American decor. College-student wait staff. Soup special excellent, garlic bread basket interesting, piatta mare ok, chopped italian salad had been sitting around too long.

We had driven past this restaurant for years and never stopped in...this week we dined with some friends and were pleasantly surprised. The house wines were terrific , the entrees all came with soup or salad..for a small up charge a wonderful Caesar or French onion soup were available; both were yummy.! A wonderful assortment of bread got our taste... More
