    The food was good, but not fancy. The service was just ok -- not sure if short staffed or what. Pleasant staff but slow service. Would try again.

    The service was okay, because the server was not very attentive. There was a notable lack of seasoning on the pasta dishes, but the seafood was perfectly cooked.

    Your prices are great. The menu seemed to be lacking for alfredo dishes, with only one listed. Would like to have Italian music playing while dining. The big screen tv in the covered patio was a bit of a distraction during our visit for me, as I could see it from inside the restaurant. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant to others.

    My friend and I had not seen each other in several years and ended up at Casa Italia because it was close and had good reviews. We were both really impressed! The food was spectacular and the ambiance great. It was nice and quiet even though there was a large party on the other side of the restaurant. I will definitely be back and have recommended it to several friends.

    The calamari was OK but not great. Too much breading and a little chewy for my taste. However the Marinara sauce to dip it in was excellent! Encouraged by the red sauce, we shared a pasta dish with shrimp and scallops. The sauce was very good, the shrimp were very good but the scallops were just so so. Then we shared the grilled salmon entree with sauteed spinich on the side. Both were excellent, although a bit overpriced, I think. The wine I ordered was out of stock so they gave ma a more expensive one for the same price which i thought was very nice. The only fault in the service was that after the server allowed me to taste it, he did not then pour any into either of our glasses. So a mixed experience, but good overall.

    Randomly picked Casa Italia Fairfax from a list of restaurants available through OpenTable. In arriving to the restaurant, finding parking was difficult as the parking lot was small and packed. Once parked we went in for an 8pm reservation. While it was Valentine's Day, we were just having a Thursday night dinner. Sadly we ended up having to wait to be seated for about 20 minutes. We opted to sit at the bar until our table was ready. And that's all we could do as the one person who was the bartender was running throughout the restaurant serving wine and the likes. So once we finally were seated we had to wait another 10-15 minutes to order drinks and food. Lastly, it took close to an hour to receive food for us and a lot of tables.

    Casa Italia is very close to our home. We arrived to be seated immediately and ordered a glass of house Cabernet (which tasted watered down) and a beer. We ordered two shrimp entrees from the limited Valentine's Day menu. We finished our drinks and set our empties on the edge of the table when we realized they weren't being noticed. We eventually realized that we had been waiting quite a while, but noticed a table adjacent to us had just gotten their food (and they had arrived and ordered soon after we did). We had been there an hour since our food order. We waved down a server and asked about our food. She never returned. After 90 minutes, we asked to pay our tab at the bar, and weren't charged. Went to eat elsewhere. Disappointing!

    Upon arrival, they appeared unaware of our opentable reservation. The number of wait staff was entirely inadequate for the dining room; it took 90 minutes for the food to be served; some dishes were hot some were cold; we were seated in their enclosed patio, which was cold and they did not turn on the portable heater until we (and another table) asked them twice. Several tables walked out. In retrospect, we should have done the same.

    Went for Valentine's and think we got a bad impression. Had a reservation and there were tables available when we arrived, but parking was non-existent. The service was poor with a special menu but they gave you the normal menu for drinks, which showed the regular prices and other food you wanted but couldn't order. Our waiter had difficulty understanding that I wanted a salad before my meal, so I never got it. Our water wasn't refilled enough and we ordered similar items (veal & chicken parmigiana) but they gave us the wrong plates. We finally asked the hostess for our check since the waiter didn't come back. We were told it was a great place just couldn't handle the large crowd on Valentine's day. So I might go back on a non-occasion.

    So I thought I would escape the city and try out this quaint (as described on the website) Italian restaurant. We were greeted with hospitality and the ambiance was ever present. Then reality set in..our waiter acted as if completely aggravated by us at best. He'd literally walk off in the middle of your sentence or question. It really ticked us off. By the time we "finally" got our food, it was actually pretty good. The table next to us seemed to agree on the waiter's escape and evasion tactics. A real shame-good food but not going back. Too many other restaurants in and around DC, MD, and Va.

    Made a reservation for one of our favorite restaurant's but was very disappointed. Unannounced, they had a limited menu for the holiday which had nothing special or exciting. All the meals on the menu were the usual staples just marked up for the holiday and the selection was poor. What we ordered was good, but not what we wanted. Our server knew nothing about the menu and when I asked about a dish he repeated the name and didn't know how it was prepared. We felt rushed and over-charged. It will be a long time before we visit Casa Italia again.

    Last minute pick after shopping and in mood for italian. Open table recommended, so we tried. Parking is tight only one way in/out and lot was full, a good sign. Even with short wait staff, service was great. Food smelled and looked amazing as we watched others being served. Our selections were super: calamari app, chick parm, pasta with scallops/shrimp, tira misu excellent, and prices were lower than we expected. Nice ambience. We'll be back!

    Casa Italia is one of our regular Italian fall backs. Its marinara sauce is excellent; the bread is soft and warm and served with oil and parmesian. The owner and host are very friendly and welcoming, which is something that I place a high value on.

    The restaurant was quite empty for a Saturday evening. The waitress had no idea what winery the house red wine (pinot) was from. Bread was mildly warm and OK served with olive oil which was nondescript. My house salad was a good combo of mixed greens, cucumbers and tomatoes. Chicken parm dish was overcooked as was the fettuccine it came with on the side. All in all a disappointing meal.

    On what is typically a excessively energetic evening, it was nice to dine in a restaurant with a warm "Family Owned" feel. The wait staff working collaboratively and struck a good balance between attentiveness and not being obtrusive. The food was very good and well priced. My wife and I enjoyed the experience and are happy to have "found" this nice local restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009VIP
    Dined on 12/24/2013
    This used to be one of our favorite restaurants but no more. Poor service (almost like we were ghosts) and we had a party of 6. Bread was stale. Food was lukewarm and very long wait to be served. Getting a servers attention was difficult and restaurant was not even overly crowded. It is always sad when you find a restaurant who was on the top of your list to go to the bottom We will not return. I think the original owner may have recently sold this restaurant which could account for the turn of events here.

    We started with the Calamari - which was very lightly battered and fresh - one of the best - good marinara sauce also. I had the Veal parm and wife had the veal Pizzoli - the size of both servings was huge - we each had to take some home - well worth the value. I had the vegetables instead of pasta - which were very tastee and prepared excellently - not mushy. Wife had the linguine with sauce - only complaint is the pasta could have had a bit more sauce - otherwise good.

    We went to this restaurant for a large luncheon party of 17 people. No one had ever eaten there previously. We were accommodated easily, and the food was really good. I had veal parm and was delighted that it was real sliced/pounded veal;a large portion and not overwhelmed by too much sauce and cheese. Lots of warm fresh italian bread was served all around. Everyone received their meals together at the same time, shockingly. Usually a large party like this has a staggered delivery of the food, which leaves some with food cooling off while others have none. The ingress/egress trouble is worth the food!

    Our party of 6 went for a birthday dinner. Upon entering I asked the host if they had a birthday dessert, he said yes, and I pointed out the recipient. Two children orderen chicken parmesan, the chicken was so over cooked, it could not be cut. Chicken Picatta order was wrong, veggies, not pasta. Waiter readily made it right, but pasta with tomato sauce was not what was anticipated as previous visit had pasta in the chicken and no tomato sauce. Waiter made excelent appetizer suggestions and salad was good. Birthday dessert never came. Disappointed from previous visit. Just did not seem to have it together. Not crowded at all. Waited a pretty long time for dinner, particularly after appetizers and salad came so quickly.
