Great meal

You need reservations as this place fills up fast. Great Italian food and great seafood. On this night there were 6 of us and we all had seafood. All were very good.

Visited for a late lunch and had a gift certificate. We had looked at a paper menu and both wanted to try dishes that only had a dinner price. The waiter told use they would not make them only things on the lunch menu. We picked 2 items and asked if we could have a small side salad and were... More

Sat at small bar. Wife & I enjoyed great wine selections (we like reds), and I had to come back for their "aged" Old-Fashion cocktail. Uniquely served in a small, fashionable glass with one extra large ice cube. They then squeeze and burn an orange rine for extra flavor and pleasant scent (?). I'm a CC manhatten on the rocks...

Late arrivals and no reservation - owner seats us as quickly as he can, with a smile and warm greeting. We were happy to take a table outdoors. This restaurant knows food !! Lovely meal: great taste experiences with the specials and the menu items, good wines, attention to detail and friendly competent service! A pleasure.

This was okay. Good, but not great. Four of us went for lunch and it was not crowded. We had tried another place first but it was too long of a wait. So we went here. It was not crowded at all. (Not a good sign} However, the food was okay, the décor was nice and the service was adequate.... More

Since I make my own homemade pasta we don't usually go out for Italian food but Cassariano is an exception.

My husband and I stopped in here when walking around Venice. We picked this restaurant because people seemed to be enjoying their dining experience. Our server was very business-like and seemed knowledgeable regarding items on the menu. Service was good. Food was served quickly. All-in-all. our lunch was very satisfactory.

On a short weekend trip to Venice, we ate here the first evening. Liked it so much that we returned the third evening. Small restaurant so reservations are wise. We loved every aspect of Cassariano - the ambiance, excellent food that is beautifully presented, good selection of wine, stellar service. Sunday evening included live music, a four-man band, which made... More

First visit to Cassariano. Very worthwhile. We arrived a bit early, but despite a very busy scene and potential diners without reservations being turned away, we were seated relatively promptly, which was appreciated as the bar is small and bar turnover is slow because meals can be served there. We were meeting another couple for an impromptu reunion in Venice,... More
