Description: Casa Rustica is Boone"s authentic Italian restaurant since 1981. We offer a wide selection of entrees including fresh pastas, chicken, veal, seafood and steaks. Our nightly specials complement our menu and our homemade desserts are not to be missed. Visit the La Bouca Lounge where the menu offers original sandwiches and flat-bread pizzas. Casa Rustica provides a cozy atmosphere in a log cabin setting. Come for romantic fireside dining or bring the whole family and enjoy our friendly and prompt service.

The atmosphere kind of reflects the name -- a rustic interior but not at all one I'd expect to find in Italy. More like a log cabin. That's not a criticism, just an observation. Had me a little skeptical about the quality of the food. Needlessly. It was very good. Didn't sample the wines or desserts but wouldn't be surprised to find them to be good as well. The staff was friendly, competent and attentive. Overall, a very good experience. Would definitely go back.

We arrived 15 minutes late for our reservations on a night that they were quite busy, yet we were seated right away. I expected to experience a delay in service due to the packed house, but I was pleasantly surprised that we were served promptly. We had a very hard time deciding what we were going to order from their large menu, it all looked good, but we were given expert guidance by our waiter.
The food arrived fast and was large portions, half of which we took home for another meal. The owner even stopped by our table to check on us. Dessert was enough to share, and was great.
We certainly will be back.

The outside of this restaurant doesn't at all indicate what is inside. The menu is distinct, unique interesting. Dishes have a nice presentation. The wait staff is very attentive. They do take reservations, and it is a good idea.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a fine-dining restaurant where the owners still travel table to table to check on guests and create community, but that's exactly what Casa Rustica offers, and so much more. It was one week after my boyfriend's birthday when we dined at Casa, yet the staff treated us like royalty. With it's distinct log cabin atmosphere and attentive staff, Casa is Southern mountain hospitality at its finest. Our waiter politely let us know upon arriving of how busy the restaurant was, yet he provided better service than we've received all over this country. From helping us navigate the menu, to honestly advising us on what dishes best-suited our palette, he assisted in a fantastic meal — the pasta purses, which we had heard so much about, did not disappoint — and the service and timing of our courses was impeccable. From the appetizer to the salads to the soup (potato soup is superb) to the main course (Casa's vodka sauce is also awesome) to the dessert (which, one week after my boyfriend's birthday, was still on the house), Casa excels, period. If you make a trip to the High Country, Casa should be on your must-do list.
