My wife and I took our son out for dinner at Casa Rustica. We've been dining here since our days as ASU students in the early 90's. The food was great and just as good as always. The house salad dressing (a red wine vinaigrette) was a healthy and very tasty choice. I had the Seafood alla Vodka, my wife... More

After a long day walking around Boone, nothing like a relaxing dinner with my wife. Highly recommend making reservations the place is always packed. Average wait time 20 mins without reservations. But worth it! Food is delicious and abundant. Service is amazing. April our server was sweet and very friendly. Reasonably priced.

Service was great and very friendly. Food was average probably a little over priced. Kids had cheese ravioli which I would not recommend as the portion was small and probably spent to much time in the freezer. It is cozy and conducive to a mountain restaurant, a little dark we had to ask for the lights to be turned up.... More

Nothing fancy, just what one might call good cozy 'comfort food*' ! *In all fairness here; I'm an Italian who not only knows how to cook, but has been to some of the best authentic Italian kitchens from coast to coast and Italy herself! ; ) Casa Rustica has an older (rather worn) interior, it's a tad dark, but again...

We've been to Casa Rustica many times over the years and have always had an enjoyable experience. We bring our friends and family when they visit because we know it will not disappoint. Excellent pasta, steak, chicken and duck dishes at a reasonable price and a full bar to complete the experience. The service has always been friendly and helpful.... More

What a great restaurant! The food there is amazing. We wish we had one near us in Florida, LOL. We go there every time we visit Boone. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the food is amazing. If you want to wonderful Italian meal I highly recommend it!

We visited for our anniversary dinner and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the shrimp scampi as our entree. We highly recommend the spinach salad and tiramisu for dessert.

Had a very relaxing, enjoyable meal at the Casa Rustica in Boone, NC. Been coming here for many years but first time for this restaurant. Great antipasto, small dinner salads to not fill you up, and many many entrées to chose from. Erica was our host for the meal and although she had only been there for a short time,... More

It costs a pretty penny to eat here, which would be worth it if the food was out of this world... but it unfortunately isn't. If you eat here, don't order spaghetti or ravioli or anything you could fix at home for a better price. I ordered the vegetable lasagna last time and it tasted like it had been left... More

We arrived 15 minutes early and were promptly seated. My wife ordered the veal francese and I ordered the veal saltimbocca. The meal came with a choice of pasta and house salad. The salad was your average house salad and nothing special. The main course arrived after about 25 minutes but it was worth the wait. Both dishes features very... More
