A favorite of mine and I’ll be back often. The food and service are excellent and it’s a great value for the price. A little loud in spots but otherwise a great choice for a night out.

My wife and I visited during restaurant week and had a fabulous lunch. Drew was our server and he was personable and very efficient. I had the Cassalinga and my wife had veal Parmesan and both dishes were absolutely delicious. Drew recommended the calamari with balsamic as an appetizer and it was a great recommendation both my wife and I really enjoyed it. We definitely plan on returning again soon!

Go there once a year when I have a rep show. Be going there since 1980. The veal porterhouse chop is fabulous. Quality is great as well as the taste. I live in ct but if I did leave in providence I would be there twice a month. Valet parking is great . And very quick . Highly recommend Cassarino’s on federal hill.

Food was good as usual. Only issues this time was that it was very cold, pricey for kids and service was inconsistent. There was a space heater next to our table but still cold and drafty. I finished my water 3/4’s of the way through my meal and I never got a refill. We took the kids and there are no options for them. Both my kids got a bowl of ziti for $15.99 each. You read that correctly. According to the waiter they take care of kids with half price meals or small bowls of pasta however, $32 for pasta and butter and pasta and red sauce is ridiculous.

Salmon was delish! Risotto (with green beans and cherry tomatoes) that went with it were a little odd.

Our server was friendly and attentive. My boyfriend had the chicken Parmesan and I had the pesto vodka sauce pasta, both were amazing. We also got meatballs and the fried mozzarella for appetizers which were also great, though not as hot/warm as we expected. However, everything about our experience was wonderful!

A party of 20 were put in the same room and the noise was deafening. Know one spoke to the party. I would say when placing reservation specify room that cannot have large parties.

I was somewhat disappointed. There were 7 of us including 3 kids ages 6-13. Service was VERY slow which is a problem for kids and curious as we arrived at 6pm so it wasn't like the restaurant was swamped and busy. Pizza was good. Two people had Pollo Molano and liked it. i had Veal Cassarino and the pasta and the veal had been in a warmer for a while so arrived kind of luke warm which wasn't expected at a restaurant of this level. So, just OK. With all the restaurants on Federal Hill, we probably won't be back.

We did receive a nice quiet table in the corner as requested but it was a cold location. Waiter provided a floor heater that helped a little. Food outstanding as always

Had a 6:30 reservation and we were seated at 7. That was the only negative comment I had. Food and service are always fantastic.

We had a delicious dinner from beginning to end. Our waiter was very attentive. The bus staff was quick to refill water and trained well to ask if we needed anything else. Unfortunately they did not have the follow through to fulfill requests. In our case it was a missing knife. Our waiter ended up taking care of it. We will definitely come here again.

I have never been here, I celebrated my birthday here. The food was excellent the restaurant itself was really peaceful and cozy. Portions were incredible. The only disappointment that I had was when I booked my reservation I put birthday I just thought my waiter would have acknowledged that it was my birthday. I will totally come back, thank you.

I appreciated the chef making my favorite dish (not on the lunch menu) for my self and my uncle who was celebrating his 94 birthday! Also the extra attention given my uncle who uses a walker. Enjoyable as usual.

Busy Saturday night...friendly waiter, but service was quite slow at the beginning and kitchen messed up one meal. Fortunately we were not in a big hurry. Still one of our favorites on Atwells.

This was our first visit to Cassarino's to celebrate our anniversary. We arrived a little early but were seated right away. Our server, and table runner were very attentive and little time was spent waiting. The food was delicious and portions large enough for leftovers. Pricing was fair for the portions you get and their an many options to chose from. Valet parking is available so need to worry about where to park on Federal Hill.

If I had a complaint it was that our water was not refilled and despite mentioning it was our anniversary on the reservation, nothing out of the ordinary (not even a Happy Anniversary) written on our dessert. That was a little disappointing.

Most defiitely. i would like to mention the fact that I left my cell phone in my valet parked car. I appreciated the fact it was retrieved for me without hesitation...just had to give the parking ticket.
