Excellent Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere

I can't belive I drove past this place hundreds of times over the past four years since it opened and didn't go in. I believe it was the location, at the corner of Southdown Road and Lakshore that caused a perception that it just couldn't be a good restaurant. Well I have been missing... read more

Went with some friends over the weekend and found it to be less than ordinary. Very typical red sauce joint menu not executed well. Pizza was not very good. I found the service to be very spotty. I would compare it to a food court type Italian restaurant somewhere in middle America.

Location looks funny being next to a MoneyMart shop, but the tiny little restaurant is a great find. It is our Italian Go-to restaurant. they somehow blend the perfect feeling between being in my grandmother's kitchen with a top shelf Restaurant. Pizza is easily as good as we had in Rome last summer.

We love it when we discover quality dining options in our own neighborhood. After talking about checking this place out for a few months, we finally got around to it last Friday. As others have mentioned, the restaurant is quite small and a little cramped. My wife an I had a reservation, and while we got our seats right away,... More

Small place located in a small strip mall, very unassuming with not too many tables. Wood-oven pizza is fantastic. You are greeted as if you are family coming for dinner. Service is attentive without intrusion. Excellent daily special menu with fantastic fish dishes, always cooked to perfection. If you don't want to be turned down at the door, make a... More

My wife and I have been to many 'high end' restaurants in Toronto and have found Casalinga to be equal, if not better than anything downtown that would be nearly twice the price. I'm quite particular particular regarding how I like my pasta so when I explained what I would like, which was a variation of an item on the... More

Fresh ingredients prepared with finesse. (Since I had the spaghetti vongole, I am craving it!) When it comes to restaurants, my spouse and I are pretty hard to impress and Casalinga definitely did. Service was good, lighting and music added to the meal as did the wines. The reason to go, though, is the quality of the food. Yes, they've... More

My wife and I eat at a lot of Italian restaurants. When we walked into this place we were asked if we had a reservation which we didn't. They said it would be difficult to seat the two of us. No problem, we'll come back some other time, and all of a sudden they say there are two spots available... More

Every time I've been to this restaurant the service and food is outstanding. Our latest visit was no exception. We took friends to experience this local gem and everyone was impressed with the excellent service of the servers and the great taste of the food. We particularly enjoyed their private label red wine. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone... More

We usually visit this restaurant a couple of times and month and we have yet to have a bad experience. They have added some of the old specials only options to the menu which is amazing. The pizza is out of this world, the wood fired oven totally makes it!! Hands down one of the best caesar salads I have... More
