Astoundingly great sauce, as well as a fantastic selection of dishes. I am a very discerning Italian (family immigrated from Sicily) with a family sauce recipe that’s been passed down over the ages, and I could not believe the depth of flavor in Casa Calabria’s own sauce! I had the Orichietti w Rapini and drooled for hours afterward. Also, Edgar is the best waiter, no-nonsense but very accommodating.

Best Italian food I have had since leaving NY. Veal parmigiana is fantastic. Veal is excellent quality cooked to perfection. The home made pasta is amazing and the red sauce is even better than my own!
Relaxing atmosphere in the dining area. right on the waterfront. The bar area is very comfortable with a great happy hour and live music

We had heard so many good things about this place. I will say that our server was great. He was so funny and a great waiter. I think that the lights were to way to bright and the music was way to loud we couldn’t even talk. When the bread came out with the sauce and we tasted the sauce was so good and usually when the sauce is good the food is. Unfortunately that was not the case. The place was pretty inside I just wish the food was better. There were 4 of us and no one was happy with their food 😢.

My first comment would be I guess there is no dress code in the "hotel". We saw people walking around with bikinis (no cover ups), bathing suits, shorts & no tops???? The bar was noisy for HH, but we endured. The tables and chairs are very close to each other at the window eating area so we had to move around a little. The noise level was high and three at our table had trouble talking. Other than that we would try it again but NOT on a Saturday night.

Excellent food, fun atmosphere and fabulous service ! Hats off to Edgar our waiter and to Jade the bartender. They were both fantastic. The cook greeted us at our table to tell us about the specials and the food did not disappoint. Will be back every time I’m in area!

Food was less than average. We ordered an appetizer special of mussels & clams. Many of the mussels didn’t open and the ones that did were very small. I ordered the fish special which I was told tasted like sole but to me tasted like orange roughy. The garlic sauce tasted burnt. My husband ordered the orechette with rapini & sausage. He said it didn’t have any flavor. We wanted gelato for dessert but they were out? What kind of Italian restaurant doesn’t have gelato.......

We choose this restaurant from the restaurant month list to try somewhere new and we will definitely go back. The meatballs are excellent to start and free valet parking!

We were welcomed like old friends and it just got better from there. Even on a rainy, drab night with the A/C on the fritz, we enjoyed every morsel and the wait staff was superb. I will be back often.

We tried Casa Calabria because they were part of restaurant month. We were amazed at how authentic the food is. We visited Italy and fell in love with the way they cook there. This is the real deal. Everything is made in house including the red sauce, which is outstanding. The servers are very attentive and are also very helpful at recommending their favorites. A little difficult to find, but well worth it. They are inside a resort. Will definitely return for authentic Italian.

Dad, Gen, and I always enjoy coming to Casa Calabria on "The Galt". No Italian restaurant in Fort Lauderdale compares to it. Tonight we were warmly greeted by Frank and Vito, then our server, Rheanne, made our table service a wonderful experience, and then the affable and talented Chef Adriano, stopped by to check on us.
We are patrons for life at Casa Calabria. You should be too!

Again we had an excellent meal. We started off with an eggplant parm appetizer which was excellent. My partner had the Callabrian meat sauce with rigatoni and I had spaghetti. We ended the meal with chocolate mouse. Edgar was our server.

Casa Calabria was one of the most pleasurable dining experiences of my life. The service and environment was excellent and the food is amazing! The Chef/Owner is charming and talented and visited our table to provide such a warm experience.
The octopus was the most tender I’ve ever had and both simple and delicious. The ossobuco was fantastic!
Seriously. It you enjoy amazing Italian food made from the finest ingredients, you should definitively visit this restaurant!

We can always count on hostess Lena to give us a great table. Our waiter Edgar told us about all the specials and we opted for the mussels and clams Fra Diavalo for an appetizer. A little hot for my partner but perfect for me. We both had the rigatoni with Calabrian meat sauce. This is a must have if you've never tried it. We finished our meal with espresso and coconut cream pie. Can't wait to return.
