Marinara sauce had a very acidic taste and eggplant parm was sliced too thick and not cooked through. Server and ambience were great.

Not sure why? Wait staff is usually very attentive. Tonight was maybe just an off night. I will say, for anyone that loves Eggplant Parmigiana, Casa makes the absolute best I’ve ever had, hands down. We will always continue to come here b/c we think Casa has great Italian food. Pricing like everything else these days has increase by about $2.00-$3.00 on each menu item. And as a wine drinker, I’m always disappointed in the minimal pour amount of wine in a glass. Wish a half carafe was offered, like at Open Kitchen in Charlotte. Pricing has increased on this as well.

The appetizer, arancini, was excellent. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it. Our server, Cassie, was delightful with good suggestions, fast and pleasant service. The salads were excellent and we really enjoyed them. I had the spinach salad with walnuts, craisins, blue cheese crumbles, and bacon. It was delicious. My husband had the caprisi salad and it was generous and quite good. We both had veal dishes which were tasty and generous in proportion, actually maybe too large, The value was excellent.
