Reservation 18094 make 11/25/2019. Responded to reminder email the day before to confirm. Arrived on time and was told they did not have a reservation for us. They did have an open table in the middle of the main dining room and we were seated immediately. We were totally ignored. Server eventually took our drink order and got it wrong. Had to flag down a busboy to get bread. Had to flag down another server to place our order. Other diners arrived after us, had their drinks, dinner, dessert, and left while we waited, and waited, and waited.

Have been to Casati's several times. Service has always been poor but this was the worst. Nice neighborhood restaurant with good food but we've learned our lesson. This was our last visit.

Food was okay, but for the price it was not very good. Also, the bleach fumes from the mopping of the other portion of the dining room were not enjoyable.

We absolutely love Cassati’s. The food is interesting and prepared with art and love. Our waiter was excellent although a bit distracted, which is unusual for their wait staff. We hope the restaurant thrives and already have made plans to return mid-December and then for new year’s Eve.

My husband and I came to Casati's for my birthday on a Thursday night. We've been here three times before and have had great food and service… even bringing our family here for a couple expensive nights out, but this time fell VERY short. We arrived a few minutes early for a 6:30 reservation, and were sat immediately and told about the happy hour drink special. We ordered our drinks and first appetizer, which all arrived within 5 minutes of ordering. We then asked for more time to decide on our entrée, and not 2 minutes later, our waitress asked if we were ready to order everything… which we did. And our second appetizer came not 2 minutes later, all within less than 15 minutes of sitting down. We never received a wine list, and after we asked for the wine list and ordered a bottle, they brought something that wasn't even on the list, passing it off as what was listed… it didn't seem like anyone there understood the menu. Management did not seem to understand why we were upset (about feeling rushed out, and served an incorrect bottle of wine…), and tried to comp us, but instead we chose to pay for what we ate, and left VERY unhappy with ZERO apologies. While the food here is very good, there are MANY great restaurants nearby that have FAR better service and management. Please beware. Also, they don't always check you in on open table, so don't bother trying to get points here...

We do our best to accommodate customer needs & preferences. Your server slowed service once asked. Upon recognizing your wine was out, the server apologized. No such bottle was "passed off" incorrectly. The manager stopped over to offer a new bottle (& was about to give a 50% discount for the trouble) but was silenced. We apologized several times, offered to pay for what had already been ordered, offered to send home fresh food. We are happy to serve and help, but can't read minds.

We went there for my mom’s Birthday dinner. The food was amazing! Everyone loved what they ordered and we ate family style. However it was terribly cold for our entire meal and they couldn’t seem to adjust. A few tables around us were complaining also.

Some of Casati's dishes are outstanding (carbonara, artichoke appetizer, roasted Brussels sprouts); others are not so carefully served (oily fritto misto, affogato without espresso).
Pizza quite good.

They find ways to not honor their specials (taking the specials menu away 15 minutes early and not coming back until after the specials expire to take your order). The cheese plate was a joke. For $10 you get 4 think slices of cheese that are about the equivalent of the package cheese slices you get at the grocery store. The service was terrible. We ordered 5 pasta entrees and only 3 were delivered but then the runners tried to put 2 additional dishes that were not ours (one being a pizza-not even close). The server never came over to explain what happened, did not apologize and did nothing to address the situation. We were lucky that we were doing it family style otherwise 2 people would have been without food until the rest finished eating. Again, no apology was offered to why we got 2 dishes significant later than the rest. And the kids food, lucky it was free (special before 6:30-though we had to fight for this) because the spaghetti sauce was the equivalent of a jar of Ragu poured over a meatball the size of ping pong ball. The pastas that we did order had good flavor but we were definitely happy we were sharing because some of the dishes were really small.

There were definitely positive and negative aspects to our dinner.

The food was quite tasty. I had the beet salad and seafood pasta. My boyfriend had the soup special and the steak. The server was nice but seemed slightly unfamiliar with the menu. No biggy though (perhaps he was a newer server). The timing of the food all came out well though.

For our wine, there was no formal presentation of the bottle. More like a brief glance. The server also didnt present/leave the cork. It went straight into his pocket. Also suggest bringing a serviette when pouring wine. We also fuond it interesting that the wine list didn't list any vintages.

My boyfriend wasn't given a spoon for his soup. The food runner had to bring one out for him. We also didn't receive new utensils for our entrees after ours were taken with our first course. Thankfully they left the extra two place settings at the table during the whole meal so we were able to pull the utensils from there.

The restaurant was accommodating for a change we wanted with our dessert which was tasty as well. Pretty restaurant, mellow atmosphere and nice staff. Just found out today that my boyfriends card was charged twice though. The second charge is still in pending so we are hoping its a non issue and clears away.

Overall a good time but there was a lack of attention to detail.

We've dined at Casati's several times and always enjoyed our meals. This time my experience was different.
The pizzas, made with their special dough, have been delicious. The new menu eliminated my favorite, La Bona, added some new ones, and a new category, "Crispy" pizzas. I like thin crust pizza so thought I'd try one. I understood that it had no sauce and agreed with the server to have some marinara sauce on the side.
Thank goodness I did agree. The pizza was dry and flavorless. The marinara and balsamic vinegar on the table made it palatable. It's not an item I'll be ordering again.

Dinner here was a terrible, disjointed experience. The bottle of sparkling water we ordered as soon as we were seated didn’t arrive until after the drinks and appetizers, we also had to point out that we needed glasses to pour it in when it was brought. A side of vegetables was recapped by the waiter summarizing the order but never showed up. The entrees were jammed onto the table by a confused busboy while we were in the middle of the appetizer. The carbonara was drowned in salt. A gentleman at a nearby table shouted at a deafening volume most of the evening as he became increasingly overserved, but they just kept pouring for him with no mind to the impact on everyone else trying to have a nice dinner. What a trashy, horrible place.

Happening Italian restaurant in the heart of Lincoln Park. Highlights were the vegan menu, cocktails, bread, gooey chocolate dessert and location. Not sure why, but all of our food came out at the same time (apps and entrees.) I would have like it a bit more paced out. Definitely recommended.

We went for battle of the chefs. The pizzas were fantastic and the crusts were wonderfully crispy and yet chewy. Flavors were spot on and they have a great selection of wines by the glass as well as by the bottle. The staff were attentive and friendly. I would definitely recommend this place. I’m excited to go back and try things from their regular menu.

We had two children and was seated in the middle of two large crowds.
One table kept using foul language and the other table kept hitting us with their movements.

The place was empty so I am not sure why they put the 4 groups of people so close

Food was very delicious so I see lots of potential for this restaurant. Ambience could be so much better if only the restaurant stopped playing outdated bad 80's music -made it feel like a cafeteria. How about some Jazz or classic Italian? Would recommend, with a caveat, to friends hitting the Victory Gardens theatre afterwards.

Just ok, the food was good enough that I ate it all but not good enough for me to go back there. the service was good enough for me not to complain but it wasn't outstanding. The place is nice when seating inside but the patio had too many bees that were bothering us constantly so we had to go inside. not a bad place but nothing to go back there for when there are so many other Italian restaurants in the city.
