Cassariano Italian Eatery Ratings and Reviews
We have frequently dined at Cassariano’s. We routinely enjoy excellent service, great food & a professional staff providing a superior dining experience. Paulo ensues a consistency rarely found in restaurants today. For a great meal & memorable night, try Cassariano’s.
If you're looking for a fine dining experience in Venice I would NOT go to Cassariano.
- Made Sunday post-theater matinee reservation for 5PM in advance. This was our first visit. (It was noted on Open Table that Sunday evenings would have jazz band starting at 6PM.)
- Restaurant opens at 5 on Sunday. Arrived on time, restaurant empty just opened for evening.
- Were taken to table located right next to the band; the only other table for 4 was "reserved for regulars". Our other option was seating along long tables located close together against the back wall.
- We were NOT told there is a back room which had available tables for 4! Basically rushed to eat in one hour with a band setting up 2 feet from our table.
- Spoke with the manager upon leaving to inform him our disappointment in dining experience and his NOT mentioning or offering us seating in the rear room. His attitude was total indifference! He mentioned “You were the on-line people right? You said the front table was OK". No response about reason for not mentioning or seating us in the back room.
Obviously not interested in our business, did not even offer to have us come back again for a better experience! In all my years dining I never had a more insulting tone from any front manager! This is the first time I ever felt it necessary to write any review.
It's unfortunate because the food is actually very good, the service is very professional and the bartender mixes top-class cocktails. This all gets passed over because at NYC prices the management does not want "our crowd" but is most interested in turning tables like a BYOB.
Cassariano does not know if it wants to be a fine dining establishment or a live music venue because they are more concerned for turning tables and catering to "regulars" who come for live music.
Never disappoints! Had my whole family in before Thanksgiving! Everything was perfect as usual. Great service, amazing food, love the stuff in order! Try the swordfish carpaccio, veal chop Seabass, salmon, any homemade pasta. Always hot and delicious. Our favorite place!
Our evening kicked off with Kendall...who took very good care of us! She attended to every need and helped us craft the perfect meal for our dietary needs! We are never disappointed here...it is the BEST Italian restaurant in our area!! All 4 in our group were very pleased with the food and the overall experience. We'll definitely be back!!
When we arrived we asked if we could have s table outside. The gentleman helping us was very nice, asked us to wait just a few minutes and found us a table outside. There were four of us. We had four different entrees, all delicious. Eggplant ravioli, a meat ravioli, gnocchi and a fish dish. Waiter Sntjony was very personable, if a bit slow in follow up. All in all a great evening.
Our dining experience was diminished by a table of 4 women sitting 15 feet away. Three of them were fine and kept their conversation to their table. One was obviously drunk and loud throughout our time there. The food was fine and the bartender was a hoot but the experience was not pleasant.
Our waitress and the manager apologized but did nothing to ask the woman to hold down the noise.
Beautiful Ambiance. Top Notch Service. Phenomenal Food. Cassariano is our go-to restaurant where we always know we will have great food and a wonderful evening. The Zuppa de Pesci was full of fresh seafood in a flavorful tomato stew. The special was steak ravioli - wonderful! And of course those meatballs are huge! We had a red wine sangria which hit the spot. And our server Anthony was impeccable and the absolute best of the best. No dessert tonight as we were heading to a concert.
Fun night out with my hubby! Sunday night live jazz was fun. Not a good night to choose for a romantic dinner as it was too loud.
But the food was fantastic and the service excellent! I had the pappardelle bolognese and it was delicious. Defined would recommend!
We love Cassariano. However, we were there Sunday evening and the band was so loud we could not talk. I felt like I was at a wedding. Music is nice. But it needs to be background music. The place is small and it is just too loud. I will request to sit in the back from now on. Or outside. Please, please have them play softly.
My wife and I have dined at Cassariano a number of times and we've always had exceptional meals. My wife ordered the Veal Scaloppini and I ordered the Linguine alla Scoglio and both meals were delicious! I found a nice bottle of Vermentino from the wine list which complemented our meals very nicely. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable, and provided very good service. We will definitely patronize this restaurant again.
Meal pacing was a bit fast. Next time we will pace our orders to suit. Salads came before I had my drink. Ordered entree after salad and they came in about 5-10 minutes. Excellent food. Beautiful presentation. Tables are quite close together so not so cozy.
As always Cassariano's food is amazing! We dined with friends who were trying the restaurant for the first time, they loved it! They plan on bringing other friends as well to try the excellent food. We love Joe at the bar too! And Anthony and Michael, both provide excellent service!
We will be back to enjoy our favorites as well as the new specials, always yummy!
