Excellent Italian food

Enjoyed a great meal with my family. The Shrimp Scampi was very good. The Spinach salad excellent!. Other members of my party really liked their food also. Recommend to anyone that wants authentic Italian food.

We had dinner at this restaurant while vacationing in Boone this week. What a treat!! My husband and I each ordered linguine with red clam sauce and it was spectacular! Abundant clams and wonderful taste. We substituted whole wheat spaghetti for the linguine and this was done for us seamlessly. Service was excellent also. We will return next time we... More

Some of the best Italian food you'll ever eat! In love with the scallops caprese and the lasanga! Needs another bathroom but it's a great place!

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
