Cassariano – the perfect expression of passion and culinary art in the form of “Contemporary Italian Cuisine”.

The restaurant’s name is a combination of both partners last names; Luca Cassani and Antonio Pariano, both born and raised in Northern Italy. After years working together in the restaurant business both Luca & Antonio made the decision to venture out on their own and open Cassariano Italian Eatery.

Driven by their strong passion for food and a deep love for their profession, these partners prepare authentic contemporary Italian cuisine while cultivating a casual, relaxed atmosphere for their patrons.

Cassariano is the perfect blend of Bistro flavors and fine cuisine. We look forward to exceeding your expectations!

We had the veal scallopinei, and both my husband and I found the veal tender, but the sauce was very strong, overwhelming the meat.
We have had veal scallopini before, and we enjoyed the sauce on it.
Your sauce was just too strong, we felt.

Pricey. If a salad or a cup of soup was included with an entree it would be more palatable. The food was very good and large portions. Our server Dana was outstanding, very attentive and no request was denied. So sweet. My dinner was not very warm so she offered a cup of soup at no charge while I waited for it to be heated. The manager brought the soup a class act I might say, and apologized.

Great detail to everything they serve. The veal chop is incredible. The swordfish appetizer is also a work of art. Service very attentive.

We had a boisterous group of friends and it appeared it may have made the server reserved/wary at first. That said, he knew every menu item and advised well when asked questions. Food was great and drinks good. Will go back.

Sat at the bar first and the service and drinks were exceptional. Our server at our table was outstanding but the food not too good. My chicken was tough overcooked, 3 of the 4 meals were just okay. Very pricey. Don’t think I will return at these prices and quality of food. We ordered bottle of wine that i can get at the store for $14 a bottle but Cassariano is charging $49, seems a little extreme would have expected perhaps $34-38 not $49.

Our first time here. Our server Jordan was great. Food came out quickly and was delicious. I had a sausage pasta that was amazing. My husband had the salmon, which he loved. I had blueberry cheesecake gelato for dessert. It was so good. He had a tiramisu that came in a glass. He said it was good too. It’s a little loud in the restaurant, but we were able to have a conversation. The energy level was nice. Make a reservation or you probably won’t get an inside table. It was so hot out but people were still eating outside. We will definitely go back!

In sharp contrast to its sister restaurant in Venice, the kitchen is far inferior. Just a quick comparo between the presentation and taste quality of the Spaghetti Carbonara tells you everything. The wait staff was very good but Venice is superior.

Restaurant is expensive for a neighborhood Italian one. The food is good and the potions are generous. As opposed to some other restaurants I have been to, they are properly staffed. Wine list is adequate with ones in a broad price range. The noise level inside can make conversation difficult so outside dining may be better. The ambiance is too low for a restaurant this expensive. They should at least consider adding table linen.

The first time we ate there was outstanding, yesterday for my SIL's birthday, we were so disappointed. The waitress was not attentive , it was not overly crowded and we waited over 20 minutes just for bread. I had to tell her we were ready to order. My husband's dinner was too salty, my seafood salad the calamari was chewy and overcooked and the mussel's were way too salty (I had the same salad the first time we ate there and it was outstanding, that is the reason I got it last night). We will wait a couple of month's and maybe try it again. I really wanted this dinner to be special, because we had such an outstanding meal the first time and the service was great.

We have had nothing but excellent dining experiences at Cassariano's. The wide choices of appetizers, soups, salads, pasta and entrees prepared with delicious sides and wonderful sauces can't be beaten. I had the branzino on Monday - the best ! You can't go wrong here. Meat, fish, fowl or vegetarian, all done beautifully.

Cassariano's is moving to San Marco Plaza in Lakewood Ranch. We'll gladly follow them.
