We have always eaten outside before, but chose inside this time due to chilly weather. But inside is so noisy--there are no sound deadening things on the ceiling and walls. We will wait for warmer weather next time (although they now have outside heaters).

The food was amazing and fresh. The service at the hostess station was good. They were professional and attentive. However, our server was only ok. She was very distracted and robotic. She seemed to be looking elsewhere even when talking to us. She was not rude, so it didn’t ruin our experience at all. But she just wasn’t present.

Our party of 6 adults had a variety of entrees from filet to duck, all were exceptional and I personally had the best old fashioned I’ve ever had, we would most defiantly go back, I give it a 10!

My wife and I visited while on vacation, the only distraction was a 5 person band playing music inside the restaurant that was so loud the staff had to literally yell to talk to us. We were seated outside as requested and it was still rather loud. Eventually the noise level dropped and we were able to enjoy the best meal of the whole trip. We had the veal scallopini, it was amazing. Wait staff and hostess were very accommodating and wonderful!

Cassariano is consistently better than good. We have been patrons (winter) the last four years. Quality is a constant along with presentation. They do get busy so reservations are recommended.

Always excellent! Has been one of our local favorites for the last ten years!
Noise level us a little high when the place fills up. But that is all there is to criticize!
Great place to go!
Grazie mille!

We had the Grouper special. It was out of this world. In the past, we’ve had good waitstaff and bad waitstaff. Now we know who to ask for. Presentation was fantastic. Food quality amazing. We are outside and that was great. Overall the best meal we’ve had anywhere in a while b

We enjoyed a nice meal celebrating my wife's birthday. The food was great as always but a newish waiter, (Daniel I think) was not as attentive or on top of things as we are accustomed to.

Very congenial outdoor dining. Setting not a focus for the restaurant, but handled well by staff. Excellent food and service. No issues. Very much enjoyed the meal with family - would certainly return.

We reserved an outside table abs 5 old friends gathered in a Saturday night for dinner. Service was very good ( Daniel) was attentive and informative. We had a nice wine, not terribly overpriced . Personally I had their veal dish - like a Marsala-and felt it lacked a bit of flavor although tender and nicely plated. I believe the others enjoyed their seafood and pasta. Would return again and order a different dish. Worth the visit.

Friends dinner out. Food-Lobster Ravioli, veal ravioli, sausage noodle dish were all pretty good but not excellent esp. for the price. Ambiance is fine but I wouldn’t consider it fine dining. Our waitress was nice enough and attentive until the end of our meal. She asked us awkward questions about being finished with our meals etc, when we obviously weren’t. .

Food is excellent. However every time I dine with you servers make us feel rushed. Hostess stand employees are not very friendly either, seems like they just assume everybody is a tourist and won’t be back soon so service or friendliness isn’t of much importance.

Cassariano has been one of our favorite restaurants in Venice. We finally decided to go out to a restaurant during covid and was assured that the restaurant was social distancing. Well, not so. We arrived and were brought to our outside table. A crammed space. On one side of us was the downtown main walkway (about 3 inches from our table and another table on the other side of us (street side) that was 4 feet from us. We also were right at the restaurant's doorway as unmasked people wandered in and out for reservations. We asked if we could move somewhere else but the only place we could go would be inside and tables were close there as well. Really love their food, it is amazing. but won't be back in restaurant until covid is taken seriously.

Here for Valentine’s Day dinner. Restaurant was booked to capacity. Entrees took a bit long to arrive but they comped us a glass of wine while we waited. Enjoyed our duck and swordfish dinners. Worth the wait!

It was our anniversary and I had requested a romantic table. We were placed in their back room which was anything but romantic. My wife's view from her seat was a large blank wall (you think they could have put at least one picture on it). It was somewhat noisy in there also. Despite mentioning our anniversary to both the host and our waitress, they did nothing special. Most restaurants would have offered a dessert to at least split or something similar. The Caesar salad with anchovies was small and for $12.50 was way overpriced. The soup my wife had was served in a large bowl but the contents of it was half full so again overpriced. My boglionese was very good as was my wife's eggplant appetizer. Overall value was not good and ambience was definitely lacking. Service was so so. Too many other good Italian restaurants in Venice, Florida to choose from. Would not rush back to this one.

The entire service was rushed. Our waiter had too many tables to focus on our experience. We ended up sending several of the dinners back since they we cold or over cooked. The food was very overpriced for the service and quality.

I have been coming here for years. It’s my first time back since quarantine and I don’t have a negative thing to say! The staff were so accommodating and friendly. The food was amazing (you have to get the swordfish carpaccio). I can’t wait to go back

This was the first time I ate at Cassariano Italian Eatery and it was wonderful!! We ate at an outside table and our waiter was very attentive. Food was delicious- I had Jumbo Scallops wrapped in Prosciutto over Risotto and my husband had veal stuffed ravioli. Definitely recommend eating here- you will not be disappointed:)

This restaurant is our favorite in Venice, FL. We ate at an outside table and were very comfortable with the Covid 19 measures that the restaurant had in place. The food was excellent as always. We are happy to recommend Cassariano's to all our friends.
