Dinner at this restaurant started ok even though we had to wait 15 minutes for our table to be ready. We were seated and ordered appetizers and mains. Our apps arrived soon but then the plates weren't cleared before the mains arrived. I actually cleared the plates myself. Then my entree was incorrect and I had to wait at least... More

To start, I called on a Sunday to make a reservation and got a recording. I left my request and proper contact info. By Tues. did not hear back, so I called again. They had no record of a reservation for me but, gave me one 15 min. later than I wanted. Come Sat. they were either going to place... More

went for lunch with a friends-service, food and atmosphere. On the line of a NYC bistro- food prepared very well and served hot. Service with a very pleasant young man with a lovely Italian accent.

Casaariano is a distinction. Great service, food, atmosphere and live music on certain nights. First the food...always tasty and great special dishes. Presentation is 5 star quality. Stands way above other Italian restaurants on the avenue and they have some quality competition. Bread biscuits are unique and homemade like home. The service is one of the reasons we come again...

Make a reservation and check your credit card available limit, but if you want fine dining in South Sarasota County this is one of only a handful of options. They never disappoint, and they do a very good lunch, too, for the same lunchtime price as most everywhere in town.
