Each time we travel to Boone, we visit Casa Rustica. Try anything on the menu -- anything! You won't be disappointed. Additionally, if you enjoy adult beverages, try the special cocktail for the evening. They work diligently to put together some of the tastiest concoctions. Lastly, the live entertainment is such a nice touch.

My husband and I finally got to visit this quaint Italian place for an after Christmas dinner which was our present to each other. Service was friendly, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Salads were quite good, as was the bread. My husband raved about his ravioli with sausage, and my eggplant dish was good but not exquisite. Onions do... More

Went here with some family and friends and it was fantastic... highly recommend the chicken parmesan! It was so good that some female from Switzerland was emailing me about a sub lease... and specifically asked for any Italian restaurants near by... it's like she knew I lived by this amazing establishment... 10/10 would recommend

Went for my birthday dinner. Family of five we all ordered Italian food and enjoyed the food very much. The problem was that the food took a long time. The manager was apologetic and offered my entire family free dessert to make up for the wait. From start to finish we were there just over two hours.

This restaurant is all around great! The atmosphere is log-cabin-cozy, the food is beyond excellent, the bread is to die for, the staff is most friendly and accommodating, and the price is very affordable. What more could you want? I highly recommend this restaurant!

My husband and I enjoyed a great meal here. The food was fabulous and the service was great too. Our waitress was fairly new but she did an excellent job. The food was well priced for the quality. I would have probably overlooked this place if I hadn't checked it out on trip advisor. We will definitely return here when... More

I have been here twice with Friends and found the food OK but not exceptional. Our friends had to send a steak back that wasn't cooked to order. My pasta was good. Service was excellent and a decent wine list.

wonderful restaurant with great food and service. Went for a anniversary dinner and it was all we could have hoped for. Steak and Scallop special was amazing. Tender and juicy with excellent flavor. Ate by the fire and our service was perfect. highly recommend.
