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.

    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.

    There is a family charm to this restaurant. From the greeter to the waiter/waitress to the manager walking the floor, you feel welcome. My family and I have been enjoying Cascone's for many years when we moved to Overland Park. Be sure to bring an apetite, you will not walk away hungry.

    The food was fabulous and the gentleman who showed us to our table was a treat. While it seemed very nice overall, our server seemed overwhelmed and behind most of the time. When our group of 6 was served, one person was left with no meal for sometime. Seems they forgot to make it. When asked for extra bread, it was served with the bill. Would we visit again...maybe.

    My husband made reservations for a Valentine's dinner. When we walked in, the atmosphere was very nice. Staff was friendly, live saxophone music playing in the background, etc. But then they sat us in the banquet room, away from the music, on a makeshift plywood table that was covered with a table cloth. They had obviously taken more reservations than what they could actually hold, which ruined the experience for us. The food was ok, not spectacular. Since we were seated in the banquet room, our waitress was running all the way through the restaurant to get the drinks from the bar. This made service rather slow and she was frustrated. If we go back again, it will certainly not be for Valentine's day!

    The restaurant was very dirty. The bread that was brought out could best be described as Wonderbread with sesame seeds. Minestrone soup was made with frozen vegetables and was served room temperature. The house salad was so full of red onions that my wife couldn't eat it. The food came out not garnished and did not look appetizing. My wife had the lasagna which was smothered in a very bland tomato sauce. I got a sampler with lasagna, chicken parmesan, and fettucine alfredo. The lasagna was not good, the chicken was lacking seasoning as well as the alfredo. The alfredo tasted like cream without any parmesan or garlic. My wife ordered wine and the wrong wine came out in a champagne glass. There's a lot more but I'm out of space.

We looked at several restaurants but wanted to eat in Overland Park...it was amazing from the moment we entered the restaurant...seated by Mr. Johnny , great menu/prices , and the service was over the top....head here instead of Olive Garden....you won't be disappointed.

    Seating with reservation was quick and when I asked for a different table staff jumped to accommodate. Food was delicious, service was great and the entertainment that we were lucky enough to be seated next to interacted with us which made for a fun time. We went on a Saturday night and it was very crowded but other than noise level it wasn't an issue. Waitress did great and noticed we were there for a bday and brought a huge complimentary desert. And did I say the food was delicious? Best marinara I have had in KC yet. We will definitely return even though price puts it into the special event/date night category, but worth it.
