The food is excellent. They just started a new menu, which has so many delicious choices. The chocolate mousse dessert was divine. The staff are terrific and the owner is extremely welcoming. There is no better place for a lovely home cooked Italian meal.

Enjoyed another outstanding meal. Was nice to see an updated menu, with lots of old favorites and the addition of some new items.
We enjoyed the gnocchi with lamb ragu, chicken parmigiana, pappardelle with wild boar meat sauce, wood fired pizza. No complaints form anyone!
Service was as warm and friendly as always!

Food was great! No complaints there, staff was attentive. Place was so busy because it was a Saturday night. We will be back, but try for a quieter time. Tables are close together so conversations have no privacy. Still a great date night.

It was our anniversary so we decided to make reservations at this unassuming restaurant located in a strip mall. Warm, cozy and inviting with excellent food and service in a quiet perfectly lit space. Undoubtedly the best mushroom risotto I have ever tasted. As an added bonus our waiter brought us complimentary warm Italian heart shaped donuts in honour of our anniversary. Great food and a wonderfully attentive staff. Thank you!

My favourite local restaurant in Clarkson Village. The owner Mario can prepare some of my favourite dishes, even if not on the menu.

Checked a few days in advance, what a treat ! Osso Buco or Cioppino coming right to your table !

Overall the experience was OK. But I should note that unlike our many other visits, my Veal Marsala meat arrived cold, we had to pour our own wine more times than the waiter did and while I noted a birthday celebration on the reservation, it was not acknowledged in any way.

Excellent food with great service. Always a quality product and good value for your money.
Despite the high ceilings it’s very quiet.

Great cozy restaurant to take family and friends but could be a bit guieter if noise absorbing materials were added for table conversations.

This restaurant works on many levels. It has a casual ambience but the food and the service work for business lunches and romantic dinners. The pasta is always perfectly cooked and the ingredients are fresh.
It is always one of my go to places for a special meal.

Food and ambience great! Server was efficient but not super friendly. We were disappointed to see the daily specials board after we ordered (we were not made aware of any specials by the server and would've definitley ordered from that menu). Still a great meal overall and I would recommend the restaurant and come back again.

We just happened to pick this restaurant by chance because it was close to my husband’s work, and boy were we glad we did!! I love finding little gems such as Casalinga!! A lovely surprise!! The service was excellent ,and the food was amazing!! Real home cooking...our server told us about the specials ..one being stuffed zucchini flowers, filled with ricotta that were out of this world. We shared a lovely charcuterie board of salumi and cheeses served with a basket of fresh bread. We each enjoyed a delicious personal wood burning oven pizza. The restaurant was quite busy for a Wednesday middle of the week night, and to us that speaks volumes. Keep up the good work Casalinga because we will be back...this time on purpose.

Food was very good, however, the Italian red wine offered by the glass was not very good. Overall the experience was pleasant but several tables found the air condition to cold and although the heat was turned on, the restaurant was quite cold for the entire lunch. However, would recommend for pizza or pasta as both our dishes were very good and service was excellent.

We were entertaining friends from out of town. This was our fourth visit to Casalinga. The food was very good with some interesting items that you won't see in your standard Italian restaurant. On the negative side it is very noisy.

Made to feel very Welcome. The food was excellent , as always . The service was good and nicely paced. We didn’t feel at any time we were rushed.
It’s definitely one of our favourites and we will return and certainly recommend it.

It was recommended by my daughter and we were not disappointed. The food was great we had the special fettucinie it was pipping hot. It was my husband's birthday he they brought him a piece of Tiramisu with a candle in it. The servers were very pleasant and attentive. We will go back and taste their pizzas.
