Thanks for squeezing me in 5 minutes before closing time. Same great food and service. Amazing specials. Can't wait to return and try something else. Don't forget the desert. Tiramisu was fabulous!

Last night was our first visit but we look forward to going back. Four people with 4 different dinners, 2 pasta, one pork tenderloin and a dinner special with seafood. Everyone loved their choices. Sat outside and had a great evening. Food was fabulous.

Had to send the first meal back because something did not taste right. Even had my husband taste it in which he confirmed I should not eat it. The second meal was not good either, but I didn't want to send it back. I just didn't eat it. We were disappointed in this place after reading the TA reviews and... More

This restaurant is busy and it is much reviewed. Busy restaurants make more mistakes, and get more reviews. In summary, the conditions above often lead to poor decisions on the part of diners. For the serious about food Cassariano's has few rivals. Theirs is a seriously good kitchen that could compete w any of Mario Batali's restaurants. If you feel... More

Good food is the anti for successful restaurants, but great food every dish, every night, is a different matter. It takes dedication to purpose, and the oversight that informs the quality control success breeds. Very few organizations can bost this duo. Cassariano has done the math, and their kitchen is unmatched for quality, preparation, and creative style. Spaghetti and meatballs... More

We loved the food. They have wine and beer so if you need a full bar, this is not your spot. You will not be disappointed. They have a large back room for groups as well.

My friends and I met here for a catch up lunch. The service was very good and the food was excellent. We had a chicken and mushroom ravioli with red pepper sauce which was a special the day we dined. It was beautifully presented and had wonderful flavors. I will definitely dine here again when I am in the area.

Went to this restaurant with friends and had a good meal but the waiter was abrupt and gave the impression that he did not want to be there. His attitude was terrible. At conclusion, I gave him a 10% tip (which was generous for the service he offered). The waiter brought the check back and ask me if I really... More

Varied menu. Excellent food. Drinks are excellent. Service is very good. Prices are a bit on the high side, but the food is high quality.

Mixed review. The food and service were excellent. But the true test for a fine restaurant is being able to accommodate special dietary requests. The fish was outstanding but came with a red pepper sauce with garlic, my request for no garlic came back from the kitchen as "there isn't that much garlic in it".
