First visit to Casa Rustica was a delight! The food was excellent, and our waiter upstairs was great too. I agree that the atmosphere was a little "tired," but it was clean and comfortable. We'll be back!

If you can overlook the dusty log interior, the worn silverware and the glass-topped tableclothed tables, you will be surprised by the quality of the food. Husband ordered the lasagne & I had veal saltimbocca-- both delicious. Our salads and the bread basket full of different breads, were wonderful. We selected a red wine to go with dinner and were...

Just ate at Casa Rustica in Boone, Have been going here since it opened in the 1980's. Once again they did not disappoint, The food was awesome. The service was spot on. Price is still reasonable considering what you get. Either go early or call for a reservation or you may have to wait.

The food is authentic, scrumptious & plentiful, the service stellar & it remains our go-to spot for date nights, family nights and "don't feel like cooking, but want delicious dinner" nights.😄

My daughter was craving pasta so we decided to give this place a try. I honestly wasn't expecting to be so impressed with the food. Everything we had was absolutely wonderful, I really don't know which dish I enjoyed more. We ordered caprese salad, Caesar salad, eggplant Parmesan, mixed veggies, filet, and garlic mashed potatoes, and fettuccine Alfredo with broccoli.... More

This was a huge disappointment for us.I had scoped this spot out over the net. My dear friends who were hosting us in Boone thought it to be a good choice as she had been there a few times, although he had not. We had reservations for Friday evening, 630 pm. We arrived and were seated on time. The waitress... More

My husband & I were in town for several days and after a long day of shopping and antiquing all over the area, we were craving some spaghetti and definitely found it at Casa Rustica! We arrived early and did not have dinner reservations but promptly seated to a nice table in the main dining room. Our server, Kara was... More

Were in town for a show at the Shaefer Center at App State. I think because of the show the places we wanted to eat at were all booked up, so went to Casa Rustica as a Plan C. I would characterize it as home style Italian cuisine in a rustic cabin like setting. It was "A-OK." We began with... More

We just had another wonderful meal at Casa Rustica. We were celebrating our 56th anniversary and were there with two other couples. All of our meals were excellent and our waitress was great. We are never disappointed when we eat there. The atmosphere is just delightful. Recommend it highly.
