This could so easily be a 5*

I chose this resturant for myself and my family, as a valentine treat. I rang pretty last minute and was lucky to get a reservation. When we arrived, I couldn't help but agree with the previous reviews. The outside wasn't very inviting. We were seated downstairs which was quite small. Drinks and... read more

Used to go here frequently 15 years back so unfair to directly compare, but a trip down memory lane was the only reason we booked. Still a strong menu of traditional Italian food and wines of which we chose calzone and a rare steak, both cooked well and presented to appeal. Service was friendly and knowledgable of the menu with... More

Visited this restaurant tonight with a friend. My first visit and I must say I was impressed. The service and food both 5 stars. Traditional Italian food with lots of love. I had the calzone which was made to order just how I liked it. A bit of a fuss pot sometimes and nothing was a problem! Also had a... More

We used to live just around the corner from this restaurant and visited on a weekly basis, now we live in Devon and have been three times over the last twelve years. As you can guess we used to find it fantastic and hence the regular visits. However, over our last three visits, things have been on a gradual decline.... More

What a shambles. We had a table booked for 10 of us 2 weekends before Christmas. It started well, starters were nice and initially service was good. Quite a few of us ordered the £20 fillet steak. When it arrived, two of us politely said that our steak was too overcooked for medium rare. (My friend next to me had... More

We have eaten at the Casa Italia many times over the past 12 years and we always have a great night there, whether we go as a couple, for a family meal or with a large party. The food is always absolutely delicious with ample choice to suit all tastes, the wine is fine and the service is just perfect... More

Living in Harborne, we often go to the restaurants adorning the high street, of which there are certainly many good ones. However, on recommendation from a friend, we decided to give Casa Italia on the Hagley Road a try. From the outside, the restaurant itself looks lovely, but the surrounding area is not perfect- the simple point here is don't... More

Went as a party of 11 with a late booking. I haven't been here for 15 years, but we'll be back again soon. The food is a delight, with a wide range for non-meat eaters too, and the waiting staff were cheerful and helpful.

My partner and I were looking for another italian restaurant to try out not too far from us. Read the reviews on trip advisor and thought it sounded nice. The restaurant is small inside and doesn't stand out from the outside. But looks are deceiving. We had garlic mushrooms for our starter they were so delicious. We had chicken and... More
