We first visited Cassariano for lunch during an arts and crafts festival last fall. Maybe because we sat outside on the patio and it was the chilliest day of the year, requiring me to wear a sweater for first and only time last year. But I judged the food good but not great. I had the shrimp salad and it... More

Always asked about the specials. They are always the BEST. I haven't had one bad meal there. Ask the waiter what's good tonight and they won't steer you wrong. Usually everything is. Nice atmosphere and also nice eating on the sidewalk. The service is also tops.

Food is incredible, all I can say. It is not a pizza joint but a high octane Italian Restuarant on Venice Avenue. Wonderful!

Cassariano was wonderful, exciting food, best ever flavors, and presentation....what can I say. We were four for dinner each having a different entree. As the plates were set on the table we were in awe as to the presentation and couldn't wait to test each dish. Person at the next table asked what I was having as he was about... More

My husband and I wanted something special to celebrate my birthday. After reading some great reviews on Trip Advisor, we chose Cassariano. We couldn't have chosen better. The atmosphere is lovely and sophisticated, they had live jazz, and the service was attentive and efficient. Andrea, our server, was extremely knowledgeable about the menu items and answered our questions in a... More

Presentation, ambiance, aromas, music and above all.....the fabulous food. I've dined in Venice, Rome, Bari and New York Italian restaurants and this ranks as one of the best. The service is personal and attentive. I tried everything at the table and did not feel stuffed. Not your typical Italian dishes. Get ready for a treat!

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

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

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
