The place is small, reservations are recommended. Although we did have a reservation, communication failed and we did not get our table until 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation. The food was awesome. The staff is fantastic. I will go back next time I am in the area

Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Made the mistake of getting a steak at an Italian restaurant. $97 was a bit much for a steak dinner. I wish I didn't have to give an average rating for my mistake. Judging by the comments I heard it is probably pretty good if you stick to the Italian.

My wife wanted Italian, happy to oblige her at Casa Rustic. She had spaghetti with meat sauce, I had seafood Alfredo. Both excellent. Had enough to take home for a second meal. Save room for dessert.

A great place to have a nice quiet dinner with your spouse or special friend. A cut above the usual casual restaurant in this area. The only downside is the location on the busiest road in town, and impossible to exit in the direction of Boone because of the traffic.

We had 60 people and they reserved the main dinning room for us. The food was good and the service was friendly. I would like to return with a smaller group, but the atmosphere was excellent and I would highly recommend this for large groups and believe that it would be good for closer more intimate dinners.

A group of us went to Casa Rustica in Boone, NC and enjoyed some great Italian meals. The salads were fresh and crisp, the bread was delicious and crusty. We got a variety of Italian dishes-lasagna, spaghetti with meat sauce, penne pasta with vodka sauce, and linguine with clam sauce. They were all delicious. The service was excellent and our... More

Have passed by this establishment for years. Have heard mixed reviews on several websites. We decided to chance it tonight. It's dark inside with older decor. Service was great and food was good. Nothing we got excited about though. The Alfredo sauce had a lot of garlic in it. Bread a bit hard but overall a good expierence. We would... More

The Inn where my husband and I were staying recommended Casa Rustica, as we both love Italian Food. This restaurant is amazing, the food is delicious and very reasonably priced, and the employees are terrific! Our server was Tyler who was so very attentive and terrific to talk to. I thoroughly enjoyed the Eggplant Parmesan, which was such a large... More

I really like their raspberry vinegarette dressing! Their manicotti is really good too. They are busy later on in the evening so I would suggest going early for a shorter wait time.

We recently visited Casa Rustica for the first time to celebrate my husband's birthday. There were four of us and we all left feeling disappointed, at best. The place is certainly rustic in decor -- a log-cabin motif, dark and woodsy. The place was nearly empty when we arrived but filled up quickly, raising our hopes for a good italian... More
