“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

We visited Casa Rustica whilst on holiday, and I now wish I lived in Northallerton. The coffee and sandwich was the best I've tasted in a long time, the owner and staff were friendly and enthusiastic about their products, and the pastries were absolutely divine. This is a 'must visit' place in Northallerton

“Not to be missed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

We stumbled across Casa Rustica whilst visiting Northallerton. It's not on the Main Street but up a side lane beside Barkers department store, called Barkers Arcade. What a find! The menu is different, varied and very affordable. Everything is super fresh, authentic and tasty. The owner is not Italian as you might first think, but Brazilian, with part Italian and Portuguese heritage. He clearly has a passion for his business and somehow finds time, despite being very busy, to have a chat with you and advise on food choices. Other establishments could learn a lot about customer service from the owner and his staff-top notch. On the way in you will see a patisserie cabinet full of delicious sweets. We didn't have room but we heard lots of oohs and aahs from others around us, so leave room if you can. There's a deli too. I've never been a fan of dipping oil and balsamic vinegar. However my husband had the antipasti platter and I tried the oil and vinegar....delicious!! I am converted so we bought a bottle of both before we left. How lucky Northallerton is to have such a fab eatery!!

“Amazing people amazing place!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

My mother and i always enjoy going to The Casa Rustica! The staff and owner are always super helpful and that atmosphere is always welcoming and cosy! The food it to die for especially the PLT (which is like a BLT but better with crispy pancetta!), the best coffee in the area is found here and is always served with a smile! Cleanliness is always a big thing for me and gladly it is always spotless!!
Amazing place i wouldn't go anywhere else!!

“Very good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Popped into this cafe on spec and hadn't read any reviews, just wanted to say that the food was great and the service better. We had a lovely waitress, I think her name was Abi (red hair). She couldn't have been more helpful and made our visit very special. With staff like this the place will be around for a long time for people to enjoy.
