This was our second visit to Cassariano and it was just as wonderful as the first time. The food, service and general feel of the restaurant was relaxing and fun. The food was outstanding. We will go there again.

Overall satisfaction,however the lunchtime experience is a bit disappointing. Sandwich selection is limited. We dine there often for dinner .
Maybe it was an off day for them. No worries we’ll be back !

Always eat at Cassarisno when in Venice. It’s always my best meal! Delicious every time, packed with flavor, great service, and love the music on Sundays.

I expect more from this restaurant. It gives a hip vibe, the staff are professional and the location great. The beef carpaccio is very good. The pasta carbonara was not great - it actually looked like a reheated dish. The sauce was coagulated verses being smooth and silky. My tagliatelle pasta sauce was tasty but had very little bits of chicken. The cocktail I asked for wasn’t made right so when I ordered a second one to be stirred not shaken - brown liquor in this drink needs to be stirred. The second one came back made wrong-not acceptable. I wish the food held up to my expectations but that night it was far from it.

We sat outside on a chilly night under heaters and next to heavy black drapes that shielded us from the street and the breeze. Felt like you were in an outside room. Foot was outstanding. Highly recommend the spinach salad and the veal ravioli.

As Always the food and service is TOP NOTCH. Very good drink menu also. Wines are also good choices. Paolo is the manager and he is the BEST. Cassariano CANNOT be beat for food and service.

Waited 10 minutes for our table to clear but it was worth the wait. Great service, food and atmosphere. Signature Manhattans, wine list and Veal specials. Our waiter spoke fluent Italian with one of our party. Cassarianos is a shining star in the sea of mediocre restaurants of SW Florida. Highly recommend!

We have eaten at your establishment many times over the years. We had a 5:15 reservation on Sat. The waiter was very friendly however after he took our order and brought the apps, picked up our app dishes then we never saw him again. Another person brought out food. We sat there for a very long time after we were done with our meal. Finally asked the man that brought out food for to-go ware and that he ask our waiter for our bill.

Outside table was too close to the street, on sidewalk next to parked cars. No barrier for noise or wind.

My wife and I took friends to Cassariano's as they had never eaten there and the meal was fantastic! My wife and my friends husband ordered the seafood special which was Seabass and when our server delivered it they pronounced it was mouth watering. My friend ordered the meat special which was a bone in pork chop and she exclaimed it was delicious after taking the first bite! I ordered the pasta special which was Orecchiette with shrimp, pancetta, and peas in a white sauce and it was truly amazing. It also happened to be half price wine night which we took advantage of. I found a Gavi and my friend discovered a bottle of their favorite Cabernet and both wines were exceptional. Our server, Georgio, provided great service throughout the meal and didn't rush us at all. We had a great experience and will certainly return soon.

The food was wonderful and the staff was super attentive for our group of 5. The timing from appetizer to the main course was perfect. They do take precaution to social distancing. We had a table inside and there was only another table besides us. There's also outdoor seating as well.

Family of six. Sat in the back room by cleaning table and entry to servers station. Pretty crappy location. Service was slow but efficient. Food was just OK. Ordered Pasta with lamb... it was luke warm and bland. Caesar salad had slimy cubes of polenta that were flavorless. One party had Veal Marsala... lots of marsala but not much veal. Overall I’d say we won’t be back. We’re locals and it’s a shame... I guess tourist aren’t as picky.

Starting with the swordfish carpaccio, followed by the stuffed pork chop special, and ending with the tiramisu, the dinner was superb in every way. Did I mention they make the best martini in town? Well they do. The staff is exceptional, and I wish them the best during this very difficult time for fine dining.
