We are proud to bring the flavors of Old (vecchio) and New (nuovo) Italy to the table. From classic dishes that the Genova family made on Sundays for family dinner to new and unique twists on Italian cuisine, every dish is made with love.
Good food and service, friendly staff, good portion size for the price. Have been here several times for meals, always excellent food and service.
We love this place but the service this last visit as well as the prior one, was really bad. They were very busy so we really tried to be understanding, but it took so long to order and get our drinks and food we weren’t even hungry by the time it showed up! The food is amazing but they need to get the service issue worked out.
We drive from Lynchburg to eat at Casa. We like their unsurpassed attention to detail , the freshest ingredients are used, dishes you do not find at other restaurants, excellent service , and the chef really makes us feel appreciated. The mozzarella and pomodoro is excellent. Cannoli is the best we have found anywhere.
Always wonderful. Great food in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful. Chef Kristi is the best. Warm and welcoming. Never disappointing.
I have been there many times and the food was just not the same as it always has been. Artichoke from a can served with the Tuna - nothing done to it at all. House pasta had none of the rich cheese and wine flavors that are normally there. Waitress provided excellent service and so I may try it again, thinking that whomever was in the kitchen preparing the dishes was just not preparing them the authentic way they are normally prepared.
This was some of the best Italian food I've had in a long time. I am no professional food critic, but I am a brat about good tasting food - must have good flavor, texture, creativity, presentation - I'm basically a chopped judge. This place exceeded all expectations. I haven't stopped talking about it and will recommend it to anyone in the Richmond area. AND the prices are superb. HIGHLY recommended.
had the extraordinary lobster ravioli. the focaccia was lovely as was the simple house salad. took a cannoli home and it, too, was fabulous. wonderful service from Patricia.
We were happy to return to Casa Italiana with another couple, and to share what we knew would be a good meal. Everyone was pleased with their dishes, as we knew they would be. Three of the party chose specials (Ahi tuna, lamb shank) while one stuck with the papparadelle with sausage ragu, without the fennel it normally comes with. As usual, the food was excellent. The service was a tad spotty but the dining room was busy and its always a little rough when Chef Kristi isn't on the floor. I wish something could be done to dampen the noise a bit, as conversation can be difficult without raising one's voice and adding to the problem. The former Einstein Bagels spot next door continues to be vacant...time to expand perhaps?!
We had a birthday celebration at the restaurant ... Service and good were both excellent!
Extraordinary Italian cuisine at reasonable but not cheap prices. Value throughout the menu. Not your typical meatball, gravy and pie Italian eatery. Effort is made on food, on cleanliness of restaurant and on service. If I could be assured that Casa Italiana could stay in business with just me, I'd tell you it was horrendous, so I could eat there by myself and select friends.
Eventhough we had a 7:15 reservation, we weren't able to be seated until almost 8:00. The restaurant was very apologetic and even bought our party of 4 a round of drinks to help compensate for our inconvenience. We love this place and will continue to come back.
My husband I dined at Casa Italiana last Valentine’s Day and decided to go back again this year! The food was delicious but the service was even better, our server Amanda was amazing! She was courteous and attentive to us and wore a pleasant smile the entire time and made our experience very special!! We highly recommend Casa Italiana!! But being an Interior Designer, I would change a few design elements to make the overall experience a little better!
Best Italian date spot in Richmond, great staff and the variety in pastas are unbelievable
This was our second visit, and the food is simply amazing!
Very nice and clean and great food. We will definitely be going back.
Great food. Great service. Nice cozy restaurant. Will keep coming back
Very friendly and attentive server and food very satisfying, however, the white clam sauce had pieces of shell which wasn’t pleasant. Definitely will continue to return.
It’s a little small inside but would definitely go there again. Food was good and service was excellent. Prices were very reasonable.
Best kept secret in Richmond. Authentic Italian with home made pasta, sauces, and dressings. Great Italian Pino Noir.
So many things on the menu to try. Everything is so good it is hard to chose. Never have had a bad dish. Gnocchi, ravioli and veal saltimbocca are some favorites.
We have been to Casa Italiana several times, and went with friends on Saturday. We were disappointed that there was no crabmeat for Penne with Crab and Spinach, no cheese wheel/cheese for Pasta al Formagio. With the vast menu, we all found good options for dinner.
One general suggestion: use a little less salt. It can be added at the table, but can't be taken out of a dish. The eggplant parmesan (my favorite!) was a little salty on Saturday.
Excellent food as always. Also excellent wait staff
Food and service were excellent!
Never disappoints. Food is always fresh and delicious, and we take everyone who visits to Casa Italiana. They cannot believe we have this wonderful restaurant tucked away in Henrico.
We rate this restaurant a 10. Would recommend to our friends and anyone else.
Eaten there several times before and LOVE IT! We will be coming back for sure.
Not only our meals were great and always is whenever we eat at this restaurant.
The Staff was so friendly. Our waitress was just perfect...and really enjoyed having her.
Always there for us. We had out of town guest visiting us from Wilmington, NC and they
too enjoyed eating there. We have never been disappointed as we were coming from the
Carytown Area-a distance away to have Dinner. It's Worth the Trip.......DO GO
Delicious food Christy the owner was more than gracious. She and the service was phenomenal
Every visit has been great. The food is wonderful. The chef knows how to concoct fabulous sauces. The selection of Italian wines is very nice. The service is always good. Be sure to make reservations--it's a small place. But that's one of the things that makes it special.
Great value. Food choices were diverse and very tasty. Duck Confit Manicotti was a surprise offer.
I will return often.
Wonderful meal with wonderful service, can’t wait to return and try more of the menu!
When my family moved to Richmond we were very impressed with the restaurant scene with one notable exception--no good Italian Food! We searched and searched. No one locally seemed to know how to make a good red sauce. Our search is over--Casa Italiana has fantastic red sauce! It also has great squid pasta, saltimbocca, ravioli, seafood, Italian wine. Our family has only been here twice so we can't tell you about the other dishes but we plan to go back many more times. The service is friendly and efficient. The seating is comfortable. We could talk easily. What a great place. It's a little hard to find but well worth the trip.
This is by far the best Italian food I have ever had. I highly suggest you try this place.
Definitely one of our favorite places to dine with friends
Always delicious, creative menu. Service is always perfect. Would recommend for a quiet dinner or a celebration
We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary at Casa Italiano. Food was delightful, service excellent!
Homemade pasta. Authentic Italian. Great service. Many options.
Delicious food and great service. You really want to go here.
This was our second time coming here. Although the food was delicious, the service wasn’t nearly as great as last time (I’m sure it was just an off night though). 😊
Very pleasant surprise given lack of high quality Italian food in Richmond. House made pastas and mozzarella were excellent. Sauces had great flavor. Interesting menu with old family recipes with more modern menu items. Service was solid but not outstanding. Will certainly return.
We had a great dinner with friends at Casa Italiana. We'll be back!
Out standing measl especially the octopus appetizer.
