    I have lived in KC all my life and unfortunately have never been to Cascone's up north on North Oak Trafficway until now. I have been to the one out south off of Metcalf and I have to say that the the one up north has them beat! The food at both is great but what sets the one up north apart is the very friendly atmosphere and the feeling like you are family when you walk in the door. They treated us like we had been coming there for some time AND were most gracious and accommodating allowing us to still dine arriving 5 minutes before they closed! They serve wonderful, classic Italian cuisine with old world, classic charm and style. They also made me a fresh pot of coffee after just throwing it out since they were finishing up for the night!

    This is one of my favorite restaurants in KC and by far the best of the Northland. The family photos on the wall and the huge portions of amazing food remind me of my Italian grandmother's kitchen. We've had adult dinners, special occasions and even family meals with our young son here. We love the food and the service and we love Alice!

    It was a very long time before our server could come to our table. Someone else took our drink order. Salads were good. Appetizer was very good. Server did a fine job once we did meet him. Husband had special, Seafood Lasagna, and said it was outstanding. Based on good reviews, I tried regular lasagna and was disappointed. Sauce was bland. Probably won't go back.

    We had a small group celebrating a friend's birthday, that happened to be the same day as one of the owners. Everyone in the restaurant was served a slice of that birthday cake and the decorations were perfect for everyone celebrating that day. The Wednesday special of 1/2 price bottles of wine was a nice surprise. The food is consistently wonderful.

    My wife and I went for our anniversary. They treated us very well - must have put their best waiter on the case! Plus, they gave us a free piece of ice cream cake. It was our second visit to Cascone's and we were not disappointed. The Spiedini Michelangelo was phenomenal and the tortellini in cream sauce that my wife ordered was awesome as well. Thanks!

    We were visiting the Liberty, MO area and found this restaurant on TripAdvisor. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Our server, Alan, was excellent. The prices were reasonable and the fare was very good. We will return if we are back in the area. We were there for our anniversary and it happened to be a homecoming weekend. There were lots of high school kids doing dinner in large groups. The restaurant handled all of them and their normal customers very well. I can see why they have been in business 60 years.

    Have been eating at Cascone's for. The location on North Oak in North Kansas City is by far the best of any. Have eaten there for over 30 year as my absolutely favorite Italian food in Kansas City. Every dish is immaculately prepared with perfection in flavor and presentation. Their homemade soups and desserts are out of this world. If you are just craving something Italian as simple as Spaghetti and Meatballs this is your place. The Lasagne is incredible. The menu has something for everyone. They actually prepare the most incredible old fashioned Fried Chicken with real mashed potatoes and incredible green beans. For dessert, WOW! They are all so good. That double layer Lemon cake is too awesome to pass up. Try it, You will Love it!!

    The food was good, however I recall it being better on previous visits. The waitress was by far not the best we have had @ Cascone's. I dislike paying extra for something and it not being satisfactory such as the Caesar salad, extra $2.50. Too much dressing. We were offered fresh parmigiana cheese by the server, however the waitress snapped something at him, I think she said she would take care of. When she did not do so, I looked for her and found her behind me clearing a booth. I tapped her on the shoulder and asked if I could have grated cheese. She returned to do, saying something about us declining previously. That was an untrue statement. She also removed my wine glass before I had finished. While the restaurant was quite busy, no ex

    I had just been two weeks prior and the service was impressive so maybe my expectations were too high. The server forgot to offer fresh ground pepper or Parmesan for my salad. I also felt as though I were being rushed by asking if I wanted a box early on. She must have felt it too because when bringing check said "I'm not trying to rush you". Little things yes but noticed and missed when not there

    I've been going to Cascone's for about 45 years. While the menu prices are going up, the portion sizes are going down. They have not been consistent on my last few visits. They have changed their chicken spedini and it isn't nearly as good. The service is always stellar but their cooks vary substantially.

    We've been going to Cascone's for 50+ years. Their plates are smaller, as are their Italian nachos, salads, bread service and entrees. Our salad didn't have a crouton on it! They've changed their chicken spedini and it is not nearly as good. We'll give them another try but definitely won't be dining there as often because while the portions are shrinking, the prices are not. We mentioned the shrinking salads when an owner asked how our dinner was and the owner offered nothing, not even an explanation. They are also getting stingy with the Parmesan cheese. FIRST DISAPPOINTING VISIT EVER!
