Pasta e Fagioli
Traditional Italian Pasta e Fagioli w/ Cannellini Beans
Home Made Lobster Ravioli, Served In A Very Light Creamy Tomato Sauce
Food was very good. My wife asked for extra sauce and they told her there was extra charge. No free refill. They charge for each iced tea and Diet Coke $3.25 each.
Will not return or recommend.
Dear Mr. William Moeslein, I've never heard that an EXTRA of something anywhere should be FREE. The word EXTRA means..... EXTRA. We have a charge for EXTRA Marinara Sauce of $2.00 that you refused to pay. We don't have any Soft Drink Dispenser so any time we serve a Coke or Sprite or anyelse (for $2.95 and not $3.25) we have to open a NEW CAN OF IT and we serve it in a nice glass with ice. We don't DONATE FOOD AND BEVERAGE..... We SALE FOOD AND BEVERAGE..... Best regards
Fantastic service & food!! I'll gladly come back!!
Cute little Italian place in downtown Sarasota. Our server Gabriel was personable and attentive. Would go again!
Delicious and outstanding service! We will be back! Highly recommend.
Food was very good. I had chicken Marsala. My wife had lobster ravioli. Both were very tasty. Portion size was more than adequate. Service was attentive but not overbearing.
Fantastic place and amazing food and service
Excellent food, well prepared and fresh
Cozy restaurant in 1920’s house- huge wine list arranged by Italian regions with choices going from under $50 to over $300. Spinach salad, though not especially Italian was absolutely delicious. Service was very good and loved talking to one of the owners who is from Rome. Lovely evening.
Used to be my favorite restaurant in Sarasota. Appetizer and veal piccata were so salty we couldn’t eat them. (and I love salt) Service was very polite, but extremely rushed. All they focused on was taking orders and clearing plates. Pretty intense.
We’re going to try some other places before we give Cas Antica another try.
Great evening, wonderful food, made from scratch and portioned perfectly. Made for a great evening topped by great service.
Best Italian food in Sarasota. The
Asta is out of this world.
Everything was wonderful for our pre theatre diner.
Fantastic food and service! Very unique Italian.
Gabriel was an excellent waiter and the food was tasty.
A charming house decor inside and outside. The food was superb and the service by Nestor was outstanding!
Thanks Casantica for the wonderful night. The excellent food transported me to Italy is an Authentic Italian food.
I recommend it, it is a restaurant where upon entering you feel like you are in true Europe
We will definitely go back
Unbelievably bad experience. Well traveled family went for dinner. Unfortunately, the Restaurant smelled like MOLD when we walked in and sat down. Waited 15 min for any service and then finally given the wine list. Spoke to owner re preference and she gave us a taste of a California wine. We agreed to buy a bottle. She brought a DIFFERENT bottle of wine, opened and poured it without presenting it or offering the cork as per tradition. When we tasted it we noted that it was a different wine. Took a few sips to see if palatable then requested to change wines. She actually argued with us and stated that they were both California wines from the same wine distributer and actually should be the same even though they had different names and bottles. She was extremely rude, argumentative and raised her voice- embarrassing us in the dining room. We subsequently left and went elsewhere to eat. I have eaten in thousands of restaurants and have never ever had such rude and unprofessional service. I am still shocked by the interaction. I cannot imagine how this restaurant still exists.
Great Italian ambiance. Romantic
Our party of 5 was in a separate “wine” dining area which is very private. The homemade pasta was delicious and plentiful. Bruschetta as an appetizer satisfied the bread lovers at our table. Service was fast and all were attentive to our needs.
I wish I could give them 10 stars! So good! Amazing food and service! So good we came back for dessert two nights later!
It was summer time and very humid in the evening, the restaurant was very cooperative and changed our outdoor seating reservation to an indoor private room which was very pleasant. Each member of our party of 4 had an excellent meal and the service was superb. We look forward to going back to Casantica Ristorante.
Excellent food and service. Second time having Gabriel as server and he’s so attentive. And the Limoncello cake is décadent
The food was authentic and delicious. However, it was definitely overpriced especially for the portions that were served. IThe food was great, but not great enough to return. Increase the portions or decrease the prices.
This resturant is Sarasota gem! The small intimate rooms are warm and inviting. The menu selections and specials have something for everyone. The wait staff was very attentive, without being bothersome. Excellent wine list and a roof top area for small parties.
Another couple of positives about this restaurant are 1) they have a sizable outdoor patio, and 2) is the location. It is in the heart of the theater district and downtown.
Service and food was outstanding as always. The lobster ravioli was fantastic
Great food, and wine selection I highly recommend this place
The food and service were outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant
Food was very good and service top notch.
We had a great dinner at CasAntica. Service was very attentive and the food was excellent. The homemade pasta was delicious and the sauces reminded me of one of my favorite restaurants in New York. This definitely a restaurant that you should try.
Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating . Ordered specials-very very good. Desserts incredibly delicious. Food & Wines -extremely expensive. Had a slow, unrushed dinner out on Terrace.
The mold odor was very strong , even outside.
Excellent expérience. Gabriel was great. Good was excellent. And the Limoncello cake was out of this world!
We were there early and had a room to ourselves. Everything was perfect for us this evening. Food, service and ambiance. Thank you!
We love it, the food is really fresh you have to try the home made pasta is unbelievable the appetizers too we order a burrata and carpaccio and I think is the best in town, the services is great so friendly we go with a two Italian friends and the chef coming to speak with them in Italian that feel in home thank you to the all Casantica stuff and we will be there soon
I request a private table and was perfect for the occasion, the food tasted amazing and the service was friendly and good.
Nice and neat place. Excelent place to visit. The food was delicious. The service was very good and the team very nice and kind. I decided to change my table and they did not have any problems to make the change, They make the customers feel confortable and happy. Thanks Casantica!! You are the best!!
This restaurant is so cozy and has left the best impressions! Great service, amazing dishes, very wide wine list and wonderful dessert. If you want an authentic italian restaurant, I would highly recommend this one! I'll be back.
Thanks Casantica for making my birthday wonderful. Excellent food and good service. I recommend choosing this wonderful restaurant
I went for a special occasion and was all I expected. The food delicious, great service and cool ambient, I'll come back!
My food came about five minutes before my wife’s. Had to sit there looking at it waiting for hers. Then when I finally tasted my food, the pasta was ok but the seafood was cold! I told the waitress but she did not seem to care nor offer to fix it. I told the manager and she said it’s probably because my food came well before my wife’s! My pasta was actually still hot but the seafood was cold as if it was never even cooked.
Also, we got a nice bottle of wine and the waitress never poured it for us despite empty glasses when she would come by.
We will never go back!
Theres better Italian in Sarasota with better service. Ambiance was the only savior.
