Food is overpriced. Gnocchi was not fresh. Risotto was canned tomato sauce and rice.

Very nice dinner. Great menu options. Everyone in our party had something different—risotto seafood; carbonara; ravioli; and pepparadelle with sausage ragu. Bread and salad were great as was house dressing. Would definitely return to check out other menu items! Very sweet server and comfortable seating in a large booth! Easily socially distanced.

The food is always unbelievable. I could eat here every day and have something totally different. If you haven’t been here you are missing out and need to go!

Very good Italian place and generous portion size. Each dish comes with a house salad and bread, so definitely go with an empty stomach. I finished all of my food. My sister and I had an amazing experience, especially it was her first time trying Italian food. I was craving seafood risotto and it was super flavorful, but I would definitely go back a second time to try their other homemade pasta dish. Also, the price were decent, just wish they gave me more than just two shrimps.

Our experience at Casa Italiana was excellent. We started with the meatball appetizer that was delicious. Our dinners were also delicious. We had the pappardelle with Sausage Ragu and the chicken marsala, both excellent choices. I can't wait for my next visit, thanks for a great dinner and a very nice time.

As usual we enjoyed our dining experience at Casa. We took our neighbors with us who were first time customers and, like others we have taken, they enjoyed their dining experience as well. Casa is consistently one of our favorite restaurants.

Called in carry one several times during the COVID lockdown. Have dined-in twice since the”opening up”. I couldn’t have been more pleased. Will continue to patronize!

We tried this restaurant for the first time. It was "okay". The wait staff was not good. We even saw the wait staff congregated toward the back of the restaurant, socializing together, not taking care of the minimal tables that were being served. Not going back for mediocre food and poor service.

I wouldn’t go back. The service was good but the food was just okay. The bread was served cold with hard butter. I expected dipping oil or an herb 🌿infused butter. The marinara sauce was good.

This was the second time we ate at Casa Italiana, and we liked it just as much this time. The food was very tasty, and they gave us big portions. I had to take quite a bit of my entree home for lunch the next day, which was a nice treat.

Wonderful food and ambiance. I have been several times and love this place. This was the first time I've been since the expansion into the space that used to be a pizza place. The extra room will help on busy Saturday nights.

The positive was the appetizers were quite good. We had the fried mozzarella, watermelon caprese salad and bruschetta. Overall, the rest of the food was mediocre and quite pricey for what you get. Took forever to get our drinks.

Everything was very good; few people there and clearly prepared for safety indoors. Vanessa was a terrific server but the drinks and food were a little slow coming out (we were one of two parties in the whole restaurant and didn’t see so many takeout orders coming out of the kitchen to merit the time. That said, I would return in the future.

Just returned from a vacation and wanted good Italian food and a good but moderately priced bottle of red and Casa Italian came to mind. The place has been expanded recently and looks awesome! As always the food and service was top notch. Best Italian food in the area as far as we’re concerned. Christy the Chef is magical!

I had dinner with my boss. My family has never been disappointed here so it was a perfect place to take someone who loves Italian food. The recommended meatball appetizer was delicious. The Chicken Piccata and Beef Ravioli were both awesome! Thank you for a great dinner.
