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!

Showed up for a 7:30 reservation and were immediately seated. The restaurant was absolutely packed which was a surprise to me based on the current perceived health crisis. Personally, I had no problem with the crowd and appreciated the vibe. It felt normal for a change. However, 30 minutes later and no drinks. Apps and entrees took a very long time to arrive and I had to chase down the server on more than one occasion. Food was good but not great. Service was OK. A casual Italian dinner should not take 2 hours from start to finish. I was in no rush. But when you keep asking yourself, "What's taking so long ?" there is an obvious problem. 3rd time dining here and I think we are done. Too many choices in the area to have to settle for average food and a ridiculous pace of service. You could do worse but you could also do a whole lot better.

Let me start by saying the food is delicious. I had the eggplant ravioli and it is very good. My husband had the pasta .
I gave this restaurant a four star rating for three reasons

1. They will not flex from the way food is prepared! In other words the food is made the way it is and they will not customize anything for you. My husband asked if they could do veal parmigiana and was told no!

2. The waiter did have a mask on but was not wearing it correctly! He had on down below his nose . I did feel uncomfortable. If you are going to wear a mask wear it correctly! ( I will say this restaurant had no signs saying you had to wear a mask when not at your table!

3. The service is good but if you want a leisurely meal this is not the place. We had 6:30 reservations and we were done eating at 7:05 . We even told the waiter we were not in a rush.

We both had veal dishes which were outstanding. The portion sizes were quite large - we had delicious leftovers. Service was excellent and we found the restaurant to be very clean, all staff wore masks and the tables were far enough apart to provide social distancing. They had a accomplished guitar player who played some classical and popular tunes - very enjoyable and didn't intrude on the dining experience.

Have eaten at Cassariano's several times and have always enjoyed the meal.

Had an incredible “date night” with my lovely wife and a Groupon believe it of not ! Excellent value and the entire evening was delicious. She had the Chilean Sea Bass Piccata and I enjoyed the massive bone in veal chop caprese. Top shelf evening all around ! Of course time with mama was the best !

Everything was great! The music on the patio was outstanding but pretty loud - we were seated close to the band, so in all fairness, we probably should have been asked to be re-seated a little further away so we could hear each other better.

We felt very comfortable eating inside as the tables were spaced nicely apart. Everyone was wearing masks correctly. We were greeted by our assistant with water and waited for quite a long time before our waiter came and greeted us. Drinks and app were delivered and we finished our appetizer without ever seeing our waiter(Isabella)so then we finally ordered our main course that someone else delivered on time and hot. All entrees were amazing. My wine was empty for most of my meal and I finally saw our waiter to catch her eye to order another glass. It was my daughters 21st birthday and she never even acknowledged that. With a greeting of any kind even though it was in my comments. I will go back again but hope for better service. The food was outstanding

An outstanding Italian eatery, authentic Italian, many ingredients sourced from Italy : mozzarella, burata, procuito , etc. Each dish expertly prepared and presented, great friendly staff , providing service. Highly recommend this very special restaurant especially to those looking for authentic Italian cuisine. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating , carefully following all the guidelines during the pandemic to provide a safe and enjoyable dining experience.
