Ciao

Old World charm and terrific traditional Italian cuisine. The service is very impressive. Probably the best restaurant in Venice, Florida. We really enjoy the experience of Cassariano's

Our children were here for Easter. I called for a reservation for late afternoon and was told they were only open until 3:00 (never bothered to tell me they reopened at 5:00) when I would have booked for dinner. We went at 1:00, asked for bar menu and was informed there was no bartender at this time of day for... More

Let me start by saying: WOW! It's what I exclaimed upon walking in because everything was so sleek, modern, yet comfortable. We had a very attentive server, Marissa from France, whom ensured we were superbly satisfied with our experience. The food was TO-DIE-FOR. Lump crabmeat salad, lamb meatballs and spaghetti, salmon-stuffed manicotti, chickpea & lamb soup... WOW! Everything tasted EXACTLY... More

My husband and I stopped for a late lunch at Cassariano and were not disappointed. Even though we were the only guests, we received excellent service. The wines were lovely and the lunch menu as well. We loved the ambiance and decor and would definitely return for another meal.

My husband and I eat at the bar. The staff is friendly and knowledgable, the Margaritas are excellent and the food is exquisite. Cassariano's is the first place we'll go when we return to Venice in November. Make reservations if you don't like eating at the bar.

This can be a very busy place and I would recommend making reservations. The veal was very good and the wine selection excellent. The service was very good, friendly, efficient, with a smile. Only problem: the place is rather noisy.

My husband and I both agreed this was the best meal we have had in Venice to date. The chef is to be commended - the presentation, quality and taste were superb. The generous portions were an added surprise. We will definitely be going there again.

As good as it gets in a county (Sarasota) that does not lack excellent Italian eateries. After three visits, on and off-season, we have only praise for the dinner experience here. The appetizers are "fuori-serie," e.g. one of the best insalate di frutti di mare or a melt-in-your-mouth burrata over prosciutto, etc. etc. The main courses are just as appetizing.... More

we stayed out our house in Venice for the month of April and because of recommendation we went with friends for dinner to enjoy Italian food at Cassariano on Venice Ave,. This place is busy and noisy and the tables are very close. So privacy with your guest is reduced by the need to talk overly loud. Our table was... More

I moved to Sarasota from NYC and in NYC there are some of the best Italian restaurants in the world. OK, I know I'm not in NYC but even I can make a decent Pomodoro. This is why I'm writing this review. My papparadelle bolonagse sauce was terribl, the veal dry. The service was very good, the ambiance promising and... More
