Good ambiance and good food with good friends

Some good friends were in town staying in Englewood and as we live in Sarasota we needed to find someplace in between to eat. We chose Cassariano as it was recommended by friends that live in the area. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by the hostess who seated us in a nice corner in the... read more

Great atmosphere. The staff was very friendly and attentive. And the food was prepared, cooked, presented and tasted to perfection.

There are a lot of Italian restaurants in Venice but this has got to be the best. Fresh handmade pasta cooked just right. We started out with the minestrone soup. All fresh ingredients and extremely flavorful. My husband had the pappardele in mushroom sauce with sausage, out of this world. I had the spaghetti carbonara. The past is fantastic. We... More

We selected this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews while we walked around in Venice. It was very crowded and the only option we had was to sit outside, which was preferred by us anyway. We started dinner with some appetisers to share (beef carpaccio, burrata cheese, caprese and shrips in spicy sauce). It was all nice and promising for... More

It was our first time going to Cassariano. The restaurant is very nice. I had the duck and my wife had the ravioli. All was delicious and fresh. Our service was great and the meal wasn't rushed.

Terrific Italian food. Pretty place, outside sealing on the road but not bad. Antipasti Di Mare is amazing and a full meal for me. Good service too.

Summer season affords shorter waits although this is one place worth waiting for. We were able to sit outside an enjoy a glass of wine before our table was ready. Between us we had four different entrees and each was beautifully presented and a pleasure to the palate. I dined on the veal stuffed ravioli and was truly impressed. The... More

We have taken family and friends to this "find" of a restaurant many times over the years. Owners are always present and attentive, servers are skilled and aware and the food is superb. We have never had a bad meal or poor service. A slight downside is the noise likely due to high ceilings and a less than desirable configuration... More
