We visited this lovely restaurant on both graduation and prom night, but were blessed to be seated within 20 minutes of our arrival even though we didn't have a reservation. We were seated in a backroom by the bar and had a sweet girl named Sienna as our waitress. She took great care of us, and was cheerful our entire... More

Enjoyed a wonderful meal with friends. Received great service. Watch for their specials on the board when you come in the door. The atmosphere here is great - not a noisy "joint" like some other places in Boone. The Pedroni's have done great things!!

We had not been to Casa Rustica in a couple of years and were pleased to find the level of service and quality of food as excellent as before.

We like to experience local restaurants when traveling, rather than the chains, and this place fit the bill perfectly! It was in a somewhat small, cozy location, and we enjoyed the local flavor. The warm, crusty bread was delicious, and each of our meals were hot and tasted great. Definitely a place you should try when in Boone!

Old furniture. Comfy. Small but homey bar. Lots of App State decor. Duck leg confit was succulent. Cherry glaze was sweet but paired beautifully with the duck. Was sorry when I was done; wanted more but had two thighs/drumsticks so it really was plenty. Daily risotto had red peppers and onions but texture of white long grain. Taste ok but... More

My family and I visited this restaurant recently. the main advice I would give is to READ the MENU. They nickel and dime you for everything. My son order Penne pasta and wanted to add chicken. The Penne pasta dish was probably $11.00, but to add chicken to his dish was another $6.00!! (yes, that is explained in the menu)... More

Visited this restaurant upon a recommendation while in the area for a job interview. It seems like a popular restaurant as by about 7 pm on a Thursdays evening, the restaurant was packed. The restaurant has a rustic and cozy decor -- mountain rustic with a large fireplace in the main dining room area. They also offer live music (a... More

Cafe Rustica has been in Boone for a long time and it looks like it on the inside. I felt like I had stepped back in the eighties and the menu didn't prove to be much better. Although our salads were fairly good our entrees were really bad. When basic entrees like lasagna and fettuccine alfredo are oddly seasoned and... More

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.
