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.

The food is outstanding, the veal Parmesan is excellent, my husband had the linguine with clams which he loved. Great pasta ( home made ) and reasonable price. We sat at the bar, and the server/ bartender was friendly and knowledgeable of the food ! Look forward to another visit before we leave this area but a must stop if... More

I love their chicken parmesan. Their marinara is delish and the chicken appears to be locally breaded. Their bread basket and balsamic infused olive oil is a favorite. My friends love their food as well and it's moderately priced.

Wonderful food! I had the salmon bisque, chicken marsala and my husband had the manicotti with a ceasar salad. I had a glass of wine and we both had dessert. Total bill came to just over $50 BEFORE a tip. We found this to be very reasonable considering the caliber of the food. Service was excellent! This was our third... More

We were excited to dine again at Casa Rustica this year. Our excitement faded due to really poor service and questionable food. Our server was highly disinterested from the start. We ordered calamari to start and told him we would decide if we wanted an entree or something lighter. It came quickly (served by someone else), but the portion was... More

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.
