Cassariano Italian Eatery Ratings and Reviews
First time - but not the last. Sandy our server was excellent, pleasant and very attentive. The food was GREAT - tuna tartare , salmon, special rack of lamb, risotto (very special) . It was my 88 yr old mother - in- laws birthday and they made her feel very special!
Even the valet, a sweet gentleman stopped traffic so she could take her time to get to the car. Now it has to be said - we live in Naples - where there we are regularly treated to outstanding food and service — that said the food and service we experienced on Saturday was as good as it gets— anywhere.
Sat outside for dinner Feb 16. Pleasant ambience and service. Food toward the upper scale for the usual Italian cuisine. Not inexpensive, but attractively presented. This rating would have been higher but the arugula salad was tired and limp. Served quickly after we ordered, so could not have been prepared after we ordered. Left over from the previous evening??
Food was delicious, best in town. Restaurant accommodated my sons taste by allowing him to order two smaller portioned dinners. Our server, Anthony, was excellent. This was not our first time nor will it be our last! Great place for dinner and highly recommend!
Cassariano’s is my “go to” place on Venice Avenue when showing guests around town who have had their fill of seafood. Great service and food. The maitre de was able to provide seating in the front section which enabled family to catch up and enjoy great food and ambience.
Primarily disappointed in service. Had heard stellar reviews about the restaurant from friends and colleagues. However, waiter was inattentive and abrupt, almost bordering on rude. No attempt to make us feel welcome. That basically negatively colored our dining experience.
May return at one point, but would definitely request a different server. Noticed that other wait staff appeared far more friendly and agreeable with their customers. Owner or manager also appeared very friendly and welcoming.
Season may not be the right time to patronize this restaurant.
One of the best restaurants in the Sarasota/Venice area. Great food (pork tenderloin with mushroom/red wine reduction sauce was phenomenal; halibut on very thin layers of spinach and potatoes was imaginative, gorgeous and foam-trendy— most importantly it was delicious). Great service. Nice location for indoor or outdoor seating.
Our first time to this restaurant, recommended to us by many people. Had a horrible table in the middle of the
Room. But after meeting our server, enjoying the fabulous food, we could have cared less where our table was!
The service was outstanding. The appetizer was the best I’ve had in a long time. Lobster ravioli special was
Generous and delicious.
Very very loud and hard to talk.
We have eaten many times at Cassariano and have been very pleased in the past. This particular evening, January 29th, was a birthday celebration. The food, which is usually of excellent quality fell short of expectations. Hopefully, it was just a "bad night" for the kitchen staff. One veal dish was tough and serving it on a large plank, in lieu of a porcelain plate, was off-putting. We will continue to patronize Cassariano, but hope there will not be a repeat of this disappointing meal. Service was, as in the past, very good and friendly. It was a busy evening, but that does not excuse the mediocre food.
I thought the presentation of the food was great. Service was very good. I did find the restaurant very cold inside. They had a tarp outside the front of restaurant but it was till very cold inside. It wasn't pleasant but everything was great. not fun to enjoy a meal and be cold.
Being a snow bird, I look forward dining here as it is a favored restaurant! The service is always wonderful. The food delicious! I have never not enjoyed a meal here. The house wines are good, with a varied wine list. The menu changes stay true to their heritage. It Is Always A Pleasure to dine here.
This was our third visit to Cassariano and we have enjoyed the experience every time. Their staff is knowledgeable, friendly, attentive and fun! Anthony was our server this past visit and he was outstanding! The food was so good - fresh and prepared the way we asked. We will be back!
I felt like we were ignored after we were first seated. It took forever for a server to acknowledge us and bring us water. People seated after us were served before us. That was annoying. Yet, once our server appeared, we were pleased with the rest of the experience. The food was amazing and the house wines were very good. Our server was pleasant but not really attentive. Mixed feelings about returning. The food was wonderful and would like to have more of it; but really do not feel like our business was appreciated or that we were welcome.
