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!

Dominic provided amazing service offering great suggestions such as the grilled octopus outstanding, probably the best I’ve ever had and the gnocchi. The ambiance is nice just a bit loud. Overall we enjoyed our evening. All staff friendly and accommodating.

The food and service was excellent. Angela, our waitress was super nice and funny! Their bread and sauce is to die for. The eggplant appetizer is a must! My ricotta gnocchi was delicious and not too heavy.

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.

Food was good, a little over priced to be honest. Service was good, but slow. The meat and cheese board was a big disappointment for the cost. Everyone enjoyed their meals.

An excellent experience. From the greeting to the ambiance, we loved it. Ocean view table was a big bonus too. But our server Angela, was the icing on the cake. A great server with a huge personality who made our visit so enjoyable. Had a little problem with some overcooked shrimp but she quickly came to the rescue.

Absolutely delicious! I find it almost impossible to dine out and find authentic Italian food. It truly was like stepping into southern Italy with the delights of homemade sauce, bread, and pasta! Can’t wait to return! Highly recommend!

First time at Casa Calabria--and what a find! The night we went there were specials for fresh lasagna and another for lamb chops, and both were great choices. Pasta was perfect, lamb chops meaty and tasty, finely prepared.
The highlight of the evening was our waiter: Giovanni! He was fantastic! Wonderful personality and expressions, fine sense of humor and a bit of a romantic. He made the meal! The best part was after the kitchen closed he went in the bar and joined the entertainment singing a few songs and mingling with the guests. It was a memorable evening. We stayed almost to closing...
This is a great place.

Good experience but have had better. Do not sit in bar area if you want to have a conversation VERY Loud. Waiter was very good but handling too many tables with no help. Also open bowl of grated cheese should not be taken from one table and handed to next table to use.
