Daughters were home from college so we were looking for a new place for a family dinner. Casa Calabria delivered on many levels. Waiter was great, very attentive. Food was fantastic—from the appetizers to the main dishes to the desserts!! We were seated at one of the family tables, near the bar—close enough to hear the live music, but not too close where it was a distraction. Valet was super convenient for a very busy restaurant. By the end of the evening, our daughter was singing on stage with the pianist! Great way to end the evening, great night out with the family.

The food was superb! The service just as wonderful! Cannot recommend this place enough. We stayed at the hotel next door that also has a restaurant in it that is beyond pathetic and over priced. Here, you absolutely get what you pay for (reasonable price in our opinion) from the atmosphere, to the service to the incredible food. Be sure to try Casa Calabria!

Not real italian food . Just italian recipes with american taste. Parmigiana was OK , they dont have home made ravioli. The ambiance is old fashion.

We love to go and celebrate here unfortunately we did not get the table that we requested this time, it was a very special celebration for a birthday and a first time visitor from out of state; unfortunately we got sat in the back corner and the air conditioning did not seem to be working very well so for a $285. meal it could’ve been a better experience. It won’t stop us from going I just wished for My friend and the experience we had hoped it would have been better as it has been in the past.
Food is always great, service amazing and wine perfecto!

Fantastic evening on every level. The food was absolutely great. Everything we had was outstanding. The service is excellent. Friendly and helpful. It was busy so, it was a bit loud but, it was ok because the restaurant is hopping. Don’t miss out on the singing in the lounge. We had a drink at the bar after dinner. The piano player is amazing. What a great voice. Then one of the services took the stage and sang a few songs. So much fun. Highly recommend for a great evening

We sat outside on the deck and had a beautiful view of the ocean as well as the ambiance of the fountain below us. For appetizers, we enjoyed the Buffalo mozzarella, Insalata siciliana, and grilled octopus, all of which were excellent. Our pasta dishes of choice for our entrees - the spicy Rigatoni Casa Calabria and Orecchiette with sausage among them - were each delicious in their own right. To finish, we chose the homemade tiramisu and peanut butter pie, a great finishing act to an excellent meal. Our waiter Dominic was also friendly and attentive throughout the night, which made our experience all the more enjoyable. Can’t wait to dine with Casa Calabria again, one of our favorite Italian restaurants in all of South Florida!

Genuinely excellent Italian food. We had such a great time here. The staff was very attentive and engaging, even fun! I've been to Italy for extended periods of time so I know my Italian wine and I know authentic food. This place has both and for a very good price.

I came with my wife and daughter just because we saw the restaurant on the news so decided to give it a try and unfortunately the food was not good but the service was really good.

What we ordered?
Appetizers: Arancini and Polpette. The Arancini were good and the Polpette too until we found inside one of the Polpette a bag of sugar, how did a small bag of sugar ended in the Polpette?

Main dishes:
- Pasta e fagioli: good taste terrible presentation. They served too much and it was dripping out of the plate
- Pappardele ai funghi porcini: heavy cream why? That is not an Italian recipe.
- Orecchiette consalsiccia e rapini: terrible presentation. Rapini weren't drained and I was served a soup of pasta, salsiccia e rapini. Also, big chunks of sausage and the Orecchiette weren't "Al dente" but overcooked.

Big thanks to Tom and Giovanni our waitresses who made the evening at least less tragic. Very professional and polite.

Thankfully the Polpette were taken off the bill and the dessert was on the house.

I have been here numerous times and I have always enjoyed the food. Last night was not a good experience. Service was great the the food presentation was poor. Our food was room temperature at best. Not sure why but I did not enjoy it as much as my previous experiences.
