The minestrone soup was good. The Sea Bass was very good. the Zuppa Pesce was just average. The shrimp, clams, etc. were suppose to be cooked in a tomato sauce. But, it must have been 'watered down'. The zuppa did not complement the pesce at all.

Top rated so we decided to give it a try. My wife had the filet mignon . She likes it we'll done but not burnt or charred. They did an excellent job preparing it. Very tender and tasty.

We were very pleased with our meal. We just wanted something light since it was already mid afternoon. I had a delicious seafood salad with calamari, shrimp, octopus, and mussels. My boyfriend had the crab salad. We were both enjoyed our meals.

The starters were great. Buratta and carpaccio were excellent choices. The pasta and sauces were excellent. Veal ravioli was very tasty as was the veal bolognese. Daughter loved... More

This place is an amazing place to dine for Fine Italian food. The atmosphere, the staff and food all are 5 stars!

To me a wonderful restaurant dinner is 50% food and 50% view/location/ambience/service and Cassariano scored perfect in both respects. The restaurant is sophisticated/attractive but the nicest touch was Lucca, one of the owners, was so welcoming when we arrived and throughout the evening. The other owner, Antonio, is the chef working his wonders in the kitchen and they are "born... More

Good food and great service at this quaint downtown Venice restaurant. I had the swordfish which was excellent. My husband had the halibut which was very good (except for the potatoes). Kids had pasta which they loved. Portions were good. Wine was good.
