We had a magnificent lunch today. Generous portions of veal Marsala and saltimbocca cooked to perfection. Add a half price wine day bottle of Tuscan red and perfecto!

I really enjoyed the service and the layout of the restaurant. I only have eaten outside before, and now I ate on the third floor. It was great food and an even better experience

Service was very good even though the restaurant was quite busy on Saturday night. Our waiter was knowledgeable and helpful with the menu and wine recommendations.

The food was okay but nothing exceptional. Had expected a higher caliber of Italian dinner on Federal Hill.

My wife and I were going to see Pretty Woman, which was excellent, at the Providence Performing Arts Center and we decided to make a lunch reservation for Cassarino's. We have eaten there several times; while there are so many fine Providence restaurant to choose from, we always come back to Cassarino's! I HIGHLY recommend the Cassalinga!!

If you aren’t a fan of yellow bell peppers, you should ask for them to be less liberal with them. We had a couple of dishes in which they seemed a bit overwhelming. Otherwise, food is great and service with Peter was superb.

We had a 5:30 reservation and we arrived a bit early but they were kind enough to seat us early We immediately received water and bread, the server arrived quickly and took our drink order. As our drinks were being served the other 2 in our party arrived. They were given some time to decide what they wanted to drink
Once that was settled we were told the specials and the server gave us ample time to enjoy our cocktails and then came back to take our order.
I had eggplant parm, cooked well but the sauce is a bit heavy for the delicate flavor of the eggplant
Veal saltimboca was another entree, I was advised it was dry even though served in sauce.
The other two diners are VEGAN and this restaurant actually has a Vegan entree section which thrilled them and their food was fantastic..

We were up for Providence College Homecoming weekend. It was one of busiest since Covid hit. Our waitress was amazing and the food came out quicker than expected. The food and spirits were delicious. We ate up on the third fl dining level and were pleasantly surprised. Thank you Cassarinos for making our weekend extra special with our family - Go Friars !

It's amazing that every time we visit Providence we have at least one meal at Casserino's. It never lets us down. The food is always so good!

I don’t always write reviews, but this place was exceptional from food, to service, experience etc.
Nick was our server, he was wonderful. What great positive energy and professionalism.
As to the food, exquisite. An experience in every bite. I ordered the sampler as an appetizer and everything was an explosion of flavors. Then I shared the shrimp scampi with my husband, and it was again… every bite got better and better. My hubby and I also got the sampler for desert - we got two of them (that was too much for sure so we got half to go. A sampler is good for two). It was delicious though..

Absolutely recommend it and if ever in town again, will definitely be back!

Been visiting for years. The staff was pleasant other than the kid that put the oil on our table and either didn’t notice or didn’t care that he spilled about a tablespoon on my menu. The Clams Casino was the worst I’ve ever had (when did clams casino turn into miniature stuffed quahogs?) The Cassalinga entree was “burnt” The place is nice, the staff is pleasant but the food….

Food was consistently good, we all enjoyed our meals! We also very much appreciated the vegan options and menu. We sat outside on the street and enjoyed the cool breeze. Service was attentive and courteous. We would definitely enjoy a night out there again!
