The first words out of the waiter was were overwhelmed. I don’t think that’s the way to start taking orders from a client. This was her first time and I do not think we will be coming back

The veal parm was biggest I've ever seen. 3 men in our group ordered it loved itvand took enough home forv2 more meals. Chicken parm was a big serving as well and leftovers for lunch and dinner next day. I had Pollo Caprese with veggies and potatoes. Just enough for my big appetite and very delicious. Waitress was very humorous and attentive to all questions about the menu
Pilot Noir wine (2) bottles were also a nice touch to our scrumptious meal. We all will be back soon to try more of Casa Calabria dishes!! Cannot wait

This is our absolute favorite Italian restaurant!!!! It is the closest thing that you’re gonna get compared to Italy, we have eaten at so many Italian restaurants from the most expensive to the hole in the walls and this one beats them all!!!! Not to mention the staff is fabulous, we go there at least once a month.

The outdoor table was great and all of the food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter was very nice but thought two of us were sharing a dish when we both ordered our own dish. There was a very long delay before the second dish appeared and this took a lot away from our experience. We were offered a free dessert - which we did not want. If I owned the restaurant, I would have comped the entree instead.
Overall, will definitely try this restaurant again as the food is outstanding and I think the service miscue could happen anywhere. All of the servers, including our waiter were very warm and personable and this counts a lot too.

Decided on Casa Calabria for my son's 20th Bday after looking at favorable online reviews. The restaurant is located in the Ocean Manor Beach Resort and the location was easy to find and complimentary valet parking was provided with validation.

My party of 5 was immediately seated on the smallish outdoor patio over looking the pool and we enjoyed the sounds and smells from the ocean even if it was too dark to see it.

Our server, Tom, was a delight as well as all the other people who attended our table--]the service was excellent. My son made a special order of the Grilled Salmon and Fettucine Alfredo and was so happy with it he declared it his favorite restaurant. The rest of our party ordered a variety of pasta dishes and were also very happy with the delicious food. With all the food we ordered plus a bottle of wine and 3 bottle of sparkling water, our was just over $200 which I though was excellent value.


Overall, we had an great outing to Casa Calabria and are looking forward to our next visit soon.

It was my birthday. Server only payed attention to my wife. Rude to me. Kept putting his elbow in my face while flirting with my wife while setting table. Had to move back while this was happening. Worst experience I’ve had at this restaurant in quite some time. Had to refrain from breaking his arm.

The food was good and reminded me of a typical NYC Italian restaurant. There was a band in the bar area so it was hard to hear others in the party

I was so happy to be able to eat at Casablanca Calabria again. This is truly one of my favorite restaurants in Fort Lauderdale. The evening was beautiful and we got to sit overlooking the Atlantic Ocean with a moon glade reflection. We started with the fruiti de mare in a white wine sauce that the chef added for us a touch of red. Simply Devine. My husband enjoyed the grilled lamb special and I had the most delicious swordfish special. Our server was Vinny originally from Brooklyn and he made for wonderful conversation. thanks again for a wonderful meal!!!

We had a nice meal sitting outside on the patio. Our food was tasty, the only issue was a bit of slow service. We had to ask for water refills several times. Overall it was a nice simple dinner.

Dinner came before appetizers. Then only half of appetizers came. The rest came after dinner. My orchette with sausage and rapini was terribly salty. I couldn’t eat it.
We’ve been here several times and the experience has always been wonderful until tonight.

It was good. The only thing I would suggest is splitting the veal parm. It’s enough for a family of 3 if you have apps and salads.

Only suggestion I have is to lower the volume of the music during breaks of the live music. This way people can talk a bit between performances….

It had been a while since our last visit and it felt so good to be back. We had their meatballs as an appetizer and they were as good my mothers. We both had the rigatoni with the Calabrian meat sauce which is reason enough to make a trip to this restaurant. We finished our meal with cheesecake and espresso. We already made our Christmas Eve reservations for the Feast of the Seven Fishes but I'm sure we will be back before that.
