When we moved to the local area, we were hungry after a long day of work. We searched up and down Hwy 105 and they were the only restaurant still open. When we went in we were impressed by the rustic setting and fireplace. The menu had a good variety of Italian and American food. We really enjoyed our meals... More

Amazing steak & seafood specials. I had one of the Specials -- Filet w/Potato Cake. Soup or Salad with entrees. She had 'build your own pasta entree'. House made salad dressings. Great service. Specialty adult beverages too.

Went to Casa Rustica for a family Birthday. We reserved the upstairs, which was extremely hot due to heat rising from the fireplace. I had to turn on the air with the help of the hostess. No lights were on, so I found the outlets for the string lighting in order to see. The stuffed mushrooms were so small I... More

We've been to Casa Rustica on many, many occasions. That should suffice as a review since it's hard to imagine returning to a place on many, many occasions if the food wasn't very good. The lasagna and other pasta dishes are excellent as is the salmon. But my favorite dish isn't even on the menu. It's called Aglio e Olio... More

Service was very attentive. My husband and I split the fried appetizer and we were not impressed with that. It was very salty to the point of almost being inedible. We each had a soup next. I had the lemon basil chicken noddle soup and it was delicious. My husband had the French onion but said it was very bland.... More

Each time we travel to Boone, we visit Casa Rustica. Try anything on the menu -- anything! You won't be disappointed. Additionally, if you enjoy adult beverages, try the special cocktail for the evening. They work diligently to put together some of the tastiest concoctions. Lastly, the live entertainment is such a nice touch.

My husband and I finally got to visit this quaint Italian place for an after Christmas dinner which was our present to each other. Service was friendly, the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. Salads were quite good, as was the bread. My husband raved about his ravioli with sausage, and my eggplant dish was good but not exquisite. Onions do... More

Went here with some family and friends and it was fantastic... highly recommend the chicken parmesan! It was so good that some female from Switzerland was emailing me about a sub lease... and specifically asked for any Italian restaurants near by... it's like she knew I lived by this amazing establishment... 10/10 would recommend
