Lunch with friends. Calamari, bruschetta, arancini and mushroom appetizers all quite delicious. Fresh, warm bread with the requisite oil with garlic & herbs was also delicious. Shrimp Scampi was well made with large shrimp and a generous garlic sauce. The veal dishes were good, but the cuts of veal a bit too thick and not very tender. The tenderloin carpaccio was fabulous as was the burrata salad.

This is my go to place for Federal Hill. It is great pulling up to the valet for parking and with reservations we were immediately brought to our table. Our waitress greeted us promptly, we have had her many times before, she is is always sweet and attentive. Dinner as always was fabulous, delicious, plentiful and not terribly expensive, we had plenty of leftovers for the following day’s dinner.

We had a 1pm reservation. The dinner menu starts at 3pm and they gave us the more expensive dinner menu. We complained and they gave us the lunch menu. I noticed that they gave everybody else in the restaurant the dinner menu at lunchtime. Everyone should be aware of their repugnant behavior. I don't
know who to report them to... Many someone else does. Be aware of their shoddy business practice. Also the menu was higher than their website. I complained and they told me they just changed the menu. Drew our waiter was terrific.. food was very good. Bread outstanding....

Restaurant was very lively on this Saturday night. Waitstaff were great, food was delicious, downside and the only reason for the 4 star was the service seemed unreasonably slow. We had a 6:00 reservation and it was fairly quiet when we arrived. Seemed like they were surprised for the busy night which given it was a Saturday was surprising. But would definitely return.

My husband and I went to dinner to celebrate our Anniversary, it was a perfect night. We had reservations for 7, we were greeted as soon as we walked through the door and seated within 10 minutes. Food was amazing as always. We had calamari with sweet balsamic reduction for an app, my husband had Bracciola (he loved it) I had Frutti DinMare, it was delicious! I would highly recommend Cassarino’s good food and good service!!

Been there numerous times. The food was outstanding as usual/big proportions. They have 2 levels of seating. We sat on the 1st. fl. It was VERY noisy. The 2nd. fl. is quieter. Ask for the 2nd. floor if you want to chat and not yell! The waiter was ok. We had to ask for drinks. We only saw him when he gave us our food and bill. We had to ask a bus boy for bread and to find our waiter because we were done. Waited awhile for the food, but it was worth it! Maybe just an off night for this waiter. Would still recommended Cassarino's.

Service was excellent. Waitress was very nice and kept our glasses full. We went to have dinner for my fiancé’s birthday. He ordered the filet balsamic cooked medium and unfortunately it came out more well. It would have been excellent if it was cooked properly. I ordered chicken parm and it was phenomenal!
