Best Italian Food in southeast US!

Doing a review is not even fair as everything at this place is OUTSTANDING! We live in the area and have been here many, many times and never had a bad experience...I've traveled the world (2 million frequent flyer miles) and the food here is as good as anything I've had in big US cities (NY... read more

Excellent TripAdvisor ratings drew us to this excellent restaurant right in the heart of Venice. The 4 of us all ordered something different so we could share-brilliant idea since everything was excellent! You must walk a bit down the street past all the outside diners at other spots; Cassariano is nearly across from the main post office and wasn't as... More

Met a fellow snowbird couple in Venice for dinner and a show. Always felt there was a limited number of choices for dinner. We were ate at Cassariano and the reviews were good, so we decided to give it a try. When we first walked in we were slightly put off by the tightness of the tables, but it wasn't... More

Went with another couple and as usual it was perfect from the greeting at the door from Paulo to the last bite of desert. I had gnocchi which I brought half of it home that was truly wonderful. My wife had the eggplant and raved about. Sorry to say that I forgot what the other couple had but everyone was... More

From the minestrone soup to the entrée the food was fabulous. Wait staff was incredible. Our waiter was from Milan and did an awesome job. Wish I could remember his name. Extremely friendly too. Don't miss eating here when in Venice Beach. Place gets packed after 5:30. Recommend reservations not to miss eating out at one of the best restaurants... More

Cassariano's is a fine Italian Restaurant with friendly service. The choice of fine wines and beer is extensive. Our party of 6 sampled a variety of menu items. All the offerings were considered very good. The veal and red snapper were exceptional. The service is efficient and friendly. The owner,Lucca, is a charming and friendly presence.

We enjoyed dining at this restaurant when we visited Venice. My husband walked up and down the street comparing menus and prices and we selected this one. Food and service was excellent. We chose not to eat outdoors as it was very hot.

Our family came here to eat during the holidays and we had a terrific evening. Food was delicious, service was excellent and the dining outdoors was so nice. We would definitely go back when in town!!!

Probably the best Italian food south of Tampa. Truly a place where they truly care about the customer's satisfaction. The tiramisu martini for desert is to die for.
