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.

My dad started taking us to Cascone's every time we came to Kansas City starting in the 1960's. One of the first restaurants I dined at when I moved here in 1977 and have been coming back ever since. Great food and atmosphere. The staff treats you like family. Chicken parm is bigger than your head! Lasagna to die for. Chicken limonota was my dad's favorite and is now what I order. This is where we go for birthdays or when family is in town

When we arrived for our 7:15 reservation there were 20+ people waiting for a table. They put our name down on a list and took people first come first served. At about 7:30 I asked if they were going to honor the reservation or not and was told everyone here has a reservation that is how open table works. I told him we use open table quite often and have never had this problem. Not wanting to wait for another 45 minutes we left. Carmen’s in Brookside was able to accommodate the reservation we booked on open table on our way over. So in the end we got a better meal from a much better restaurant.

We won’t be back to Cascone’s but my suggestion to open table is to call and explain how your system works or kick them off it as it will start to reflect your service negatively.

I got the sense whoever is managing the restaurant is coasting on its past success. It was very busy when we were there, but the food just wasn't that great. The fork-tender Osso Bucco was definitely the highlight , but it was slathered in a gravy that was nowhere near as tasty as the pork itself. I NEVER salt my food at the table and I salted this food twice, but it didn't help that much. The Alfredo had no flavor. Not butter, parmesan or garlic. I don't even know how one makes an alfredo that doesn't taste like any of its tasty primary ingredients. As dishes passed by, we could see that each dish of food was drowning in its corresponding sauce. I like sauce as much as the next person, but only if it has good flavor and adds something to the dish. None of the three sauces we tried that night were good. When we left, my fiance said that Olive Garden (which he hates) is better and I agree.

I loved the centerpiece of the decor - the lit branches, but the rest of it felt mismatched and like they occasionally updated this or that. I'm shocked at how busy they were, considering the quality of the food. I haven't been here in years and I suspect they used to be really good, but just don't seem to be trying anymore.

After all of these years, the food is only getting better. The service was great, especially considering how busy the restaurant was. The staff was running and amazing! Everyone was exceptional. That includes the host who spent extra time with our 6 and 2 year olds. He made them feel special. Our waitress was totally on top of things, we wanted for nothing. This has always been a special place for our family.

A group of friends and I went to eat here before prom. It was overall a good experience. We loved having the choice of the high school event menu, even though I do not believe it was rung up correctly for the check. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend it.

Food is way to expensive for the value. Came for the 2 for1 on Sunday still cost me $54 and no alcohol. Probably will not come back or recommend to a friend. Sorry other places much cheaper.

The meal was great and it always tastes so good. We usually have either spaghetti or lasagne, and we weren't disappointed in the food. The service was slow, though, and we could have used more bread. Whatever happened to the olive oil dipping sauce? That used to be served as a regular item, now we never see it. We were seated in the back near the kitchen and it was a bit chilly by the window--they need some new caulk around them to help keep out the air coming in under the windowsills. We like the big portions, and especially enjoyed the BOGO meal. Thank you so much for that.

Service was extremely well! We split the lasagna, chicken Parmesan, And fettuccine dinner. It was definitely enough for two. We ordered a side salad with an up charge of five dollars for splitting the dinner. Our server was extremely nice and the assistant to her was very very nice. We arrived before the rush and had a very pleasant experience. We have not been here in a few years but intend on returning again and again! Thank you💜

My family has always enjoyed coming to Johnny Cascone's. The food is always great and never disappoints us. On Friday and Saturday night they have live music. The music is not too loud that you can't carry on a conversation so it's very nice to hear.

The overall experience was good. When we got the bill there were 2 more charges on the bill. We weren’t told in advance about these charges. Why would you charge for a spicier tomato sauce on Veal Parmigiana? Does it really cost more to make it spicy? And I substituted sauté spinach for the pasta on the Chicken Soto. Is spinach so expensive it couldn’t be substituted? I don’t appreciate being nickel & dimmed when eating out.

We love coming to Johnny's on Sundays. They have absolutely the best fried chicken, yes I said Fried chicken in town. We start with the neck bones which are out of this world, order the Sunday special which is again the best fried chicken -just like I used to make. The meal comes with mashed potatoes and green beans but I prefer their version of "hasbrowns" which are potatoes and onions and I love the Italian grilled vegetables. Save room for dessert by taking home one of the four pieces of chicken you will get and don't miss out on the homemade peach cobbler. My understanding is a sweet little lady comes in weekly just to make the desserts.
You can't go wrong with Johnny's. Can't wait to go back again!

We have been to Johnny Cascone's multiple times and enjoyed each visit. There was a keyboard player the last time we ate and our table was right next to him. It was not overly loud, but it did make having a conversation difficult. The food was excellent as always and the waitress very friendly and fun. Very generous portions.
