Went to dinner with another couple expecting a great meal. Ordered the pecan encrusted trout, and a baked potato for a side item. The trout was over cooked, and a pecan topping was spread over the top. Very dry and disappointing, and clearly not encrusted....More

We have been eating at Casa Rustica on and off for some 20 year. Currently it is nothing like it was food- wise. I had the baked eggplant...it was mushy and smothered in red sauce but burned and charred in some spots. The onion soup...More

On a Saturday night during tourist season, this place is packed and reservations are strongly suggested. It was crowded, noisy, and there's not much ambiance. The atmosphere is definitely casual. The food and service were both very good. The menu is typical Italian-American but it...More
