After being here in 2011 I had very fond memories of this place and the food. To no surprise it appears this place has just gotten bigger & more popular without losing the great taste of the food. The place opens at 7pm (ish it is Italian time after all!!) and I do recommend you book, it was a bit... More

We emailed and booked a table in advance for 8.30pm on a Saturday night and were very glad we did as the queue snaked out the door! We were seated immediately and as we don't speak Italian (unfortunately!) a very helpful waiter translated the menu and pointed out dishes to suit our dietary requirements. There were lots of veggie options... More

Trattoria la casalinga literally means home-cooking or dining like at your own home. Well, the place were packed with clients and we waited 20 minutes for our turn. In less than 10 minutes our orders were ready (which means that our pasta were pre-cooked) but in fairness, thier pastas were delicious. Creme caramel is great but tiramisu is less than... More

Amazing experience in true Italian style. Don't expect tourist treatment. Eat and drink like locals. The food is great and the service was excellent. We can eat there everyday. Don't order too much. The dishes are large. One primo & one secondi were enough for 2 of us. If you don't know what to order (especially in Italian), just go... More

I can't say much for the food because I never had the chance to try it but the service is worse than a street food stall. This review is purely based on my interaction with one particular staff over the phone today. Trattoria la Casalinga was recommened to me by staff at the hotel I stayed at in Cinque Terre,... More

Warm service. Excellent food. The pasta was simple and tasty. The steak was phenomenal. My dad dropped his steak on the floor and they gave him a new one with no problem. Hilarious moment.

The food and service was so good. This is where the locals go to eat and we know why. The food quality is good, quantity is good and the price is worth every penny. We had to check our bill as we thought the server forgot something. We will be back next time we are in Florence.

At 7:30 pm on a monday in August, we were very lucky to get a table without making reservations, but as we sat down, there came about 20-30 people who did not, so I recommend you make a call prior eating here. Great house wine, and excellent atmosphere. So anti touristy, that we had to google the menu to understand... More

We visited Casalinga one night for a small dinner of pasta & wine,and it was so good we came back the next day for something more substantial. To start a platter of meats & cheeses served alongside a litre of house wine so good i was sure the price was wrong on the bill (it wasn't). Next: pasta & clams,... More
