We came to Casa Rustica as a last minute date night and we were so happy with everything! Especially our server Laura. We had the antipasto as an appetizer and it is so much food - highly recommend it. I had the chicken picatta and my date had the filet Oscar. Then we ordered 3 desserts and they were all... More

I usually avoid eating Italian food out because I'm of that descent and prefer my own preparations better than most. However, this is a nice place with pretty good food. I did find the appetizer offerings to be lackluster and we skipped them altogether. Other menu offerings are enticing though and there's something for everyone. I did try the soup... More

My wife, who is NEVER cold, was freezing in this restaurant. It took three tries to find someone to even inquire about the temperature. That was after having to almost tackle a server to ask if anyone had been assigned to our table almost 20 minutes after being seated. The service was bad from start to finish, and the management...

The portions here are ridiculously large and very reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and provided good service. This is a family friendly restaurant but it looked like lots of dates were also happening.

You do need a reservation--- as this place filled up fast. Our food was good-- the salad was a little sad, but the bread was lovely ( a variety). We did think it was a bit pricey, but Boone is a tourist town. I would not recommend the linguine with clam sauce--but my family would recommend the pasta with meat... More

We have been many times and are never disappointed. This is an Italian restaurant with good food and service and reasonable prices. It is one of our favorite restaurants in Boone/Blowing Rock. They take reservations and parking is not a problem. The veal (or chicken) picata is always good as is the Caesar salad. And they have entertainment on Thursdays... More

Had a lovely meal after a long day of hiking nearby. The veal and chicken dishes we ordered were excellent. They prepared a simple pasta in olive oil because we did not want marinara sauce. Nice wine options also. Would definitely return.
