A word from Johnny Cascone's
We respect our roots. Customers enjoy classic dishes and attentive service in a comfortable space with modern décor. Adaptation is also important. Cascone family members young and old pay attention to contemporary tastes and participate in discussions to balance the restaurant's traditions with fresh ideas.

Dining at any of our restaurants is a homecoming of sorts where guests can relax, enjoy each other's company, and celebrate life's big moments and small rituals. That communal approach is an extension of what we value as a business; tradition matters; family is important; serve your community.

    We had a more than enjoyable dining experience. Food and service were very, very good. We wanted to catch up with the other couple dining with us and we were allowed to stay as long as we liked.

    I've noticed a lessening in the quality of the food in the last year. The egg plant parmesan had one thin slice of parmesan cheese not wide enough to cover it. It used to be smothered in cheese. Now we always used to rave about their consistency of their kitchen, but our favorite dish has slipped to not even honorable mention.

    We arrived today (11/6/2014) for our 6:30 reservation, party of 6. We were seated and served our drinks, the only round or refills that we were to be offered the rest of the evening. One of our party was running about 30 minutes late so we thought cocktails and appetizers would be fun while we waited. Only the appetizers were served, no additional drinks. We ordered our dinners when our additional party arrived at 7:00. Our server, Kevin, kept stopping by the table to tell us that our order would be out soon and to discuss hid dread of a party of 100 football players that were arriving in an hour. We had to fill our own ice tea and waters ourselves from the servers stand. No additional cocktails were offered. At 8:10 no dinner, we walked.

    The food was so good. I ended up getting the baked mostaccioli and loved it. It had a creamy sauce which was a nice surprise with just a perfect amount of spice. The portion was very filling and a good size. I will definitely get this again! The bread was warm and soft. The server was on top of things and the restaurant was inviting. This will be a place I return.

    Sunday evening, the restaurant was not really busy. Service was slow. They were out of the entree' I ordered from the daily menu. They would not honor my groupon saying that it was not for their restaurant. Have been a frequent guest at this restaurant for MANY years, I told the server about the groupon when I ordered and asked if it could be used. She did not know about it but just assumed it would be OK.

    If this is your first time visiting, be prepared for a wait even with a reservation. Many, many regulars came in after I did and were seated while I patiently waited for a table. Once seated however, my meal was very good. The servers are overwhelmed but they do an outstanding job. My server recommended the Calamari and Lasagna and Meatballs. All were delicious. So if you go, you'll wait, but the food was worth it.

    Our server was hugely obsequious and could not have cow-towed any lower had the Queen herself had been dining with us. I ordered the tortellini which was so heavy handed it was like eating paste and my partner had the spaghetti and meatballs which was served with no finesse whatsoever. Sadly yet another restaurant in Kansas city which rests on the laurels of its name and is too lazy and complacent to back it up with what we came to enjoy - good Italian food and professional service. We won't be back

    There seemed to be a lack of communication somewhere. The waiter was energetic, however, some things were not served as ordered. Specifically, asked for salad to be packed to go as I knew I couldn't eat it with dinner. Instead it was brought to the table with dressing on it. When it was packed to go, what a mess. Had left overs from dinner also. When I opened the bag at home, there was salad dressing EVERYWHERE! Not as usual. And, it seemed to take forever to get dinner and to pay. Must have been an unusually off night. On an up note, the bread dipping oil, prepared table side, was the best we'd ever eaten anywhere.

    Italy in the Midwest. A visit is a special treat for the finest in Italian food. Salads are cold and crisp, the soup is all homemade, and the Lasagna is best with the meat sauce. The crowd is mostly graying and loyal to the core, but families with children are greatly encouraged to enjoy the Italian flavor.

    I have never had a better experience anywhere else. Although I live closer to several other resturants, I have no desire to dine anywhere else. The dining atmosphere and food are fantastic at all times of the day and evening. I always recommend Johnny Cascone's to family, friends and people who I have never met before. My wife and I will always remain a loyal customers. The many years we have dined at Cascone's, I have never once been disappointed in the food or the friendly staff. The staff has always ensured my complete satisfaction. I strongly urge everyone to visit Cascone's and try the different menu items. You will be satisfied.

    We are new to the KC area, and enjoy trying out new restaurants (especially Italian). We also seek out family-owned & operated establishments. We were warmly greeting and escorted to our table by 'Vito.' Our drink order(s) were taken promptly and the seating was very comfortable, instead of being 'shoehorned in.' You had a very good list of Specials, and our waitress recommended a fine Merlot we could all share. I like salads, and ours were fresh and tasty; I especially enjoyed your Thousand Island dressing. Our friends chose Italian dressing and one enjoyed a bowl of soup. Our entrees (eggplant, fried chicken, lasagna and beef stroganoff) were all outstanding. My wife never finishes an entrée but there were no leftovers today.

    Had reservation via opentable. Seated immediately per our request for booth. We were given time to have cocktails and leisurely view the menu. Once orders taken, our salads and bread arrived. We have time to converse and enjoy our salads. When entrees arrived we all 4 had chosen different items. We were each very happy with choices. Eggplant Parmesan was delicious. Best ever! The Chicken Spednini also exceptional. Lasagne as advertised, very special. Capellini was great, very tomato filled. For dessert lemon cake and Creme brûlée. Totally wonderful experience.

    I read several reviews for the restaurant and had high hopes. Unfortunately, I found the ambience severely lacking upon arrival. Our reservation was slightly early at 6 o'clock, but I was surprised to find the clientele mostly consisted of age 70+ retirees. Our waiter was friendly and entertaining and we even met who I presume to be the owner, but overall I was unimpressed. The entrees were all in priced in the teens and twenties, but the atmosphere did not warrant the price. The specials menu was printed on a piece of computer paper, the salad and soda were served on plastic dishes, the booth was broken, and the paint on the walls was chipping. I split the Italian Flag with another member of our party and enjoyed the fettuccini.

    Johnny Cascone's is a restaurant in the style of an Italian Family restaurant from days gone by. I do not mean for that to be demeaning in any way - it is nostalgic, predictable, and a great bet for a fun family dining spot every time you dine there. The menu has changed little though the years with the infrequent additions always delicious. Johnny Cascone's is always predictably good food in portions beyond what most can eat in one setting. Count on taking some home and dining again. Johnny Cascone's is habit forming and in time you feel part of the family. Give it a try. You will become part of the family as well.

    Didn't want to cook so thought of Cascone's. No wait. Nice booth. Nice server.Good variety to pick. No rush.Food was a little bland but filling. Liked the wine. We have taken friends here and they liked it. My husband's favorite is Osso Buco but not on the menu that night. We will go back of course for a relaxing meal with lots of choices.
