    I got the gnocchi pesto and it was amazing! Our server was top notch. Though he was busy he still made sure everything was good and we were taken care of. I don’t remember his name but he is from Australia and has an amazing life story. I would eat here every time I visit North End!

    It’s always a great night at Casarece! Dinner, drinks, and atmosphere are always terrific! There’s nothing better than outdoor dining at Casarece on a warm summer evening! Justin is the best! He’s friendly, professional, knowledgeable and enthusiastic! His attention to detail and passion always make the experience at Casarece outstanding!

    Food was AMAZING - our server had the best recommendation - I got the pesto gnocchi and it was the best I’ve ever had. One great thing to know is that the whole restaurant is nut free! So if you have an allergy or intolerance this is a very safe place to go. Very friendly staff - we sang happy birthday twice to guests!

    Authenticity and Quality! The food is excellent; Light homemade pasta, excellent wine and a homemade light cannoli shell very close to my mother's! We went to treat visitors to Boston from Mississippi. It was so fun to be treated well with an entertaining waiter, yet be allowed to chat and visit.

    Service was slow. Food was good but I didn’t get much of a portion size of the actual gnocchi - it was covered in spinach and rabi. Not much flavor

    Very enjoyable dinner for a Friday evening in the North End! Limoncello Martini, Mixed Green and Beet Salad and Fettuccine Alfredo (but different name on the menu. Many visits to the north end, first time here, will definitely be back!

    First time I had lobster ravioli...OMG!! These homemade pillows were loaded with lobster and were topped with a velvety marscapone sauce. All the food was awesome, the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. Our server was so friendly and helpful....he obviously loves his job and it showed. Loved this place!

    The tables were very close together, ~6 inches or so. I understand that the space is small and the restaurant needs to make certain choices, however, this could certainly detract from the experience if you are next to an awkward or loud couple. The tables outside were better spaced so go for that if you can. The fresh pasta and homemade breads were both excellent and I would return again for the food. The veal was very thin and crispy, just how I would want. I wish the red wine was slightly more chilled as it was hotter than room temp. Dinner for 2 with 1 app and 1 glass of wine each ran about $130, so average pricing but not extreme. 7/10

    Made reservation over OpenTable and asked for open window seating indoors. Table was ready when we arrived. The location is perfect for the North End. Busy corner location. Wish I could have tried most everything on the menu. We had an early dinner reservation as we had plans after. The seafood was excellent! Jeff's a very friendly entertaining character. Made everyone feel at home. I'm going back for the lasagna!

    Restaurant has character. Food is above average. Small, intimate dining room open to the street. Eggplant parmigiana is better at Piccolo Nido. Lasagna was overcooked.

    We went there for my wife's b'day dinner. Our 5yo accompanied us. She is a picky eater and loved the meatballs & spaghetti. Casarecce has a nice wine selection. Our food came a a brisk pace but we did not seem rushed. The server was friendly and willing to help with suggestions. The pasta was al-dente which I like. Overall a good experience.

    The food was okay. We made reservations online and were asked twice about it. Two of the eval dishes we wanted weren't available. The window and door were wide open so it was chilly. The food wasn't good enough for is to visit again with so many other options in the North End.
