Cassariano Italian Eatery
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!
Food great as usual, service excellent. Always a great place to eat.
Our favorite restaurant. We’re never disappointed with the food or service.
I would go back again. The service was excellent and the tables were very well spaced. Plenty of outside seating too.
Always great food and generous portions. Outdoor seating is nice, but the road can get a little loud.
We usually dine at the original Venice, Florida spot, so this was our first time at the UTC location in Sarasota.It did not disappoint! Same excellent menu and customer service. One of the owners, Antonio, was in the kitchen and gave us a warm hello; he even sent his daughter over to introduce herself to us, as we have been longtime customers.
We think Cassariano is the best Italian restaurant anywhere. EVERY dish our friends had was phenomenal. Drinks and wine were on point and the atmosphere is modern and lively. Save room for their tiramisu, in our opinion the best in the country!
Love the food, great service, will eat here again and often.
From the greeting at the door to departure after dinner, the service was excellent. Drinks, wine and meals are alway top notch.
Another great meal, service by Andrew 5 star! Highly recommend.
We had an awesome experience the restaurant is very clean the ambience is very nice and the servers are excellent not even talking about the food that’s not only looks beautiful but it taste great overall that’s truly a five-star restaurant highly recommend it. Anthony was our server and we will love to go back and see him again.
Cassariano’s has become our new favorite. Luca and his staff are so attentive, caring & fun, plus the food is ALWAYS delicious. Ethan our server is another reason Cassariano has become a new favorite. Ethan is a direct reflection of Luca. Good people attract good people!
We dined with friends and all the entrees were excellent. My wife and I shared the duck which was delicious. Service was professional and excellent. We dined outside in the late evening and it was delightful. Inside would have been a different story as it was very noisy. The restaurant was busy and perhaps on another evening when it wouldn't be very busy it might be more quiet. When we return we will most likely request outside again. All in all a very pleasant dining experience. Highly recommended.
Great food and service! Isabel is definitely in the right business. She was very personable and fun to visit with!! Leo took great care of us!!
We love Cassariano. Marcello is a fabulous host!
Great food, great drinks, great time!
Very good food and excellent, attentive server. Wish the ambiance was a little better
Excellent food, once again. The service was spot on and we didn’t want for anything.
Our waiter Andrew was amazing!!
Food and service are outstanding. Everything is served beautifully and hot.
Unfortunately, the acoustics plus live entertainment make the noise level off the chart. Suggest musicians lower volume on the amplifiers and microphones. Table conversation is almost impossible.
Never disappointed..food is outstanding, the servers are attentive, and, the bar staff makes a perfect vodka dirty martini.
Consistently unparalleled Italian restaurant with a large and very menu and wine list. It has never missed for us.
It’s the little things that set restaurants apart. I didn’t expect white table cloth outside in Sarasota even though this restaurant is touted as higher end but still...no drink napkins (the table was of course covered with water from the moisture off the glasses), no glass provided with bottled beer, beer on the menu (which I ordered) that the restaurant no longer carries, etc... The wait staff was polite and attentive. I ordered rack of lamb and it was breaded with some type of wet herb crust...I found it odd and gross and scraped it all off. The lamb itself was good. My wife had scallops that she really liked.
Great as always
The most amazing sea scallops wrapped in proscuitto!
We had dinner fir two to check it out! Staff was great! Attentive without being bothersome! Our meal was great! Desert was great! Going back this weekend for dinner for 6!!
Excellent food and professional staff who make a point of greeting repeat customers!
Always great! Thank you!
Incredible. So yummy!
Food is great, service was not. Had to stack and clear the dishes from our table so we had room for our meal. Once waiter knew that we were splitting entree, he never came back to check on us until we asked for the check. Mind you, we both had apps, drinks, and both kids had a meal.
Outstanding food and service.
From the entry, being greeted to the food was outstanding as is every time we enjoy our meal. The Server was outstanding and attentive. The food is succulent, visually appealing and each taste yearns for more. Can't wait to go back for another delicious meal.
Always excellent. Food flavor and presentation is always good. We had the special lobster ravioli, chicken Milanese, lamb chops and pasta Rustica. Portion size and flavor great. No complaints. Their bread is always fresh.
We usually order wine but switched it up with cocktails this visit. Watermelon martini and pomegranate martini were good and they found an aged rum for my husband. After dinner lemoncello is homemade and always a treat.
Freddy at the bar is very friendly and gives us plenty of time to visit without feeling rushed. Marcello is always friendly and interacts well with all the guests. We have never had a bad visit.
Amazing food and will come back
Really good food. Great patio atmosphere. Reservations through open table were easy and we were seated immediately. Highly recommend!
I asked the waiter what his favorite dish was and he said “rack of lamb,” and he also recommended the scallops and and a few others, wow! They were absolute melt in your mouth perfection! No gaminess whatsoever with the lamb. The Burrata prosciutto is imported from Italy, and is ahmazing. We will be back! Thank you Andrew!☺️
Excellent food, service was not great . Staff however, was friendly.
Great waiter, great food, refreshing outdoor space to relax, catch-up with friends, and eat delicious food.
Dinner was outstanding, as always.
Our server, Andrew, provided outstanding service😊
We love it here. Food is always amazing and the service is very friendly.
Fantastic meal...start to finish.wrapped around excellent service
Good food, great ½ off bottles of wine on Wednesday's. Andrew was our waiter and was most definitely one of the best - thank you, Andrew! A little loud and too cold inside but outdoor space is quite nice.
