Reviews of this place, plus the recommendation of a staff member in our hotel bar, persuaded us to saunter up the road for supper. It was a little dark inside and could definitely do with better lighting but it had the feel of a ski lodge. The staff were lovely and the food delicious - I had the Wagu steak and it was very tasty and well cooked. There were some good wines on the menu and it was a throughly enjoyable evening.

This place used to be great according to the reviews and locals. Not so much now. The staff here is very friendly and polite, but that was the highlight of the evening. The kitchen staff apparently needs help, a lot of it. Seated at 6:55, the appetizer came out in decent timeliness and was good. However, we didn’t get our salads until almost 7. We decided enough was enough of watching others who came in after getting served within reasonable time limits. We were assured that our entrees were coming right up, but after over an hours wait, we were no longer hungry. There were other complaints about the quality of the food that we could plainly hear, so it was not just us.

We asked the manager if they were short handed and were told no.

Folks, I've been a loyal patron of Casa Rustica since Peter first opened. And I've enjoyed many, many meals under Ricky's ownership. I'm baffled at the decline in quality.

Tonight, the oil and vinegar for dipping the bread tasted like vinegar. The blue cheese dressing I look forward to enjoying was not good. My pasta was good. But the tiramisu was the biggest disappointment. It isn't creamy chocolate anymore. It was a pasty, grainy pudding with 3 big cookies on top.

The service was top notch as always. Thank you for that. Poor lady was gracious even through our obvious displeasure.

Our hotel recommended this place so we decided to try it out. It was fairly busy but we were promptly seated. Service was good and fairly fast. I ordered spaghetti with a mix of pesto and marinara sauce. The sauce was delicious but there was way too much of it. There's several vegetarian dishes on the menu. Ambience is good and there was live music! Great dinner in Boone.
