I was expecting a higher standard of service and ambiance than is provided at this restaurant, especially since my spouse and I were celebrating a special occasion that evening. I was drawn to this restaurant primarily by the rave reviews about the food quality, and we enjoy authentic Italian food. I should have paid closer attention.
This restaurant has a very rustic decor, let's say. Paper covered the tables and only paper napkins. No menus, instead there is a large blackboard wall with all the menu items listed. Our greeter pointed towards a table for us located against this menu wall. We couldn't read all the menu from our table. No one read the menu items to us, or made any food suggestions, or offered any descriptions of items to us. She suggested that we take a picture of the wall in order to view it on our phones more easily. Then she told us we would have to wait because she had to take an order at another table first. We sat patiently for about 10 minutes until I asked someone else for some water at the table. Shortly after, glasses, a jar of water and some bread, olives and caponata were delivered.
The lady returned to take our order, just like you'd expect at the neighborhood diner. We had decided to share the burrata appetizer which included two lumps of burrata, a few slices of prosciutto, and garnished with some leafy greens for $25. It was good.
For entree we each ordered the tagliatelle pasta in a lobster bisque sauce with lobster meat and shrimp, $38 for each. The large portion of tagliatelle pasta was made at the restaurant. It was firm, tasty and held up perfectly in the sauce. The bisque was creamy, and full of lobster flavor but the lobster meat was only from the claws. Kinda skimpy, and only 3 small small butterfly shrimp.
A nice bottle of Falanghina with this dinner was $40. We decided against dessert.
The final bill with 20% tip amounted to $179.07. Overall, the food was good, but the service and the ambiance were disappointing.

This is the third time my wife and I have gone to this restaurant. Each time we go we are greeted by the owner Amelia and her husband with a warm welcome as this restaurant is family owned. They take great pride in the quality of all their food which is second to none. Each time we go to Florida now we make sure that we stop at Casareccio’s for our best dinner of the week.

We knew going in that it would be expensive, however, the overall quality of the dishes does not equate to the price. The service was disjointed- at times they were rushing us, other times ignoring us. Empty glasses of wine when entrees delivered, empty plates at end while we sat and waited. The ambiance was not enjoyable. Regulars crowding our table while they chatted with each other was extremely rude and annoying. A woman’s backside in our face for over 5 minutes while trying to eat. The tables are so close together that it is impossible to avoid. There is a musty smell when you enter the restaurant. There are so many Italian restaurants in South Florida, this one is a hard pass for a re-visit.

Their motto is “Good food is not cheap and cheap food is not good”. Food was not good and not cheap! If Nonna was in the kitchen, the gravy (sauce) would never have been allowed to leave the kitchen. Needed to cook much longer from a real Nonna! Very disappointing.

We are always on the lookout for small and quaint places to eat. I noticed that many parties that came in the night we were there had previously been at Casareccio and were greeted warmly upon their return. It is a bit expensive but the food is outstanding. The service was excellent. The menu changes so one would not get bored going there several times to eat. The wine list is limited but adequate. The pasta was cooked perfectly and everything tasted fresh.

Nice wines, friendly service and great food. From the caponata and bread that appeared on the table, to the fried calamari and burata and prosciutto, to the pastas and chicken parmigiana, everything was excellent quality, and beautifully prepared. Desserts were homemade and delicious as well. We sampled the papardelle and amatriciana pastas, both were delicious . Owners were friendly and fun.

Thank you Brian for coming Theres no in-house waiter service . Chefs just shop everyday. If you read the website. Its like visiting a house in Italy and eating from their homes. We shop fresh org everyday. Buy them if you requests for a dish. Wine, and other ingredients are premium quality. Real Cheese, free olives, free bread and caponata. Your parking was free. The italian born chef cook. The dish are authentic. Self promotion was only way to chat in each table & see if all was okay.

I was surprised by the location. Small place in a little strip mall. Upon entering I thought how cute and charming. I love to find little hole in the wall places with great food. This was exactly that. The food isn’t inexpensive but worth every penny!! The ingredients are very fresh!! Menu is on the blackboard and changes according to the freshest ingredients they get. I was told if you want something specific, and you call a few days in advance, they can make it for you BUT only if they can guarantee that it will be found at its freshest. Will definitely be back and with friends!

We are on vacation in Pompano Beach and were looking for a place to have dinner. My husband found this on Yelp with good reviews and it did not disappoint. Everything about this restaurant was wonderful- the food, ambience, service. If we lived around here, we would become regulars.

Bread and olives were tasty! Arugula salad was good but dressed and salted w a heavy hand. Cacio de Pepe was delicious! Affogato was also delicious!
Salt and pepper grinders and cloth napkins would be a nice addition, instead of utensils wrapped in paper napkins. Fresh Shaved/ground at the table Parmesan reggiano should also be offered for the pasta dishes.
Seating arrangement is a little strange; two large tables for six could have been divided into several smaller tables for two or four, which would be more appropriate, unless there is a large party which needs the larger table. On the evening we dined there were only smaller parties, and it felt awkward to be a party of two dining at a long table set for six. Foyer and probably the dining room itself could also use a good cleaning and freshening. Many of the hanging lightbulbs were out.
