We respect our roots. Customers enjoy classic dishes and attentive service in a comfortable space with modern décor. Adaptation is also important. Cascone family members young and old pay attention to contemporary tastes and participate in discussions to balance the restaurant's traditions with fresh ideas.

Dining at any of our restaurants is a homecoming of sorts where guests can relax, enjoy each other's company, and celebrate life's big moments and small rituals. That communal approach is an extension of what we value as a business; tradition matters; family is important; serve your community.

I'm not sure if it was a bad night or not, but the service was pretty bad, the other customers were rude, and the quality of the food wasn't at the level it has been in the past. Probably won't be back for a long time.

Everyone seemed pleased with their meals. We had little ones with us and the staff was great with them. The chicken Speidini was the big winner. The olive oil set up was a nice add on as well. Salads were great. I dreamed of the Veal Limonata it was not as good as it had been years ago when I lived in KC. And they drowned my meal in the sauce. No Capers (it always had them before) and it was always lightly crispy very thin pieces before with a freshly made butter and wine based lemon sauce. This seemed premade and maybe even ready made sauce not delicious house made sauce made for each order. id di not taste butter or wine flavors in the sauce this time. It did have a nice lemony flavor though just not as rich and fresh as it once was.

it's so nice to be able to count on a great restaurant to maintain their high standards and not be swayed by the fickle tastes of people that don't recognize quality, taste, and family traditions. Old school? Maybe, but that will never go out of style.
Thank you for being there year after year.

Very disappointed. The last time we were here it was great. This time, not so much. Bread came without butter, had to ask 3 times for enough place settings and missing butter, bar order never got delivered and arrived after we asked where it was - came after salads even though it was ordered before meals, olive oil dipping sauce came half way through the meal, brought fried ravioli instead of regular ravioli as the entree, vodka cream sauce was regular red sauce and we were charged a split plate in the kitchen for two kids and weren’t told there was a split meal charge after our server offered to split it in the kitchen. All around bad evening.

Met a friend for happy hour at Johnny Cascone's and had such a nice time that we stayed for dinner. I can heartily recommend the ravioli appetizer and we split the salmon cakes for dinner. They were delicious! Our server, Daniel, was very attentive and friendly.

New Year's Eve was a busy night and the place was packed, however, we were welcomed and served in a timely manner. Our waiter was fun and took time to be sure we had what we needed. The food was served warm and delicious and timely. It was a lovely evening. It is one of our favorite places to eat.

This is a great restaurant. They used to have a piano player on Friday nights that stopped sometime last year which is disappointing but still worth the trip. The food is always very consistent and never disappoints. The only thing over the past year that has changed is they did a little remodeling and changed the prices on the menu so everyone is paying for this remodel. I still enjoy going here but will not go as often anymore as the prices are quite a bit higher now.

The first thing that created me when I entered was the smell of....what...I am not sure but they did try and cover it up with air freshner. It smelled like cooked cabbage....I went there for lunch on a week day but no lunch menu. I tried to order the margarita flat bread and was told that don't have that even though it was on the menu. I ended up ordering the lasagna and parm chicken special. It came out drenched in sauce which ended up being a blessing as both were flavorless and the chicken was tough. The meal plus drink was about 18 bucks. Way too much for this meal. I won't be going there again.
