Enjoyable and Satisfying

At 5pm when the doors opened the restaurant had several patrons. Seems this could be a local spot for residents of Venice. The food from the bread, salads and main course was filling and delicious. My salmon was a lighter meal compared to my husband's pork. Our trip will include returning here.

Amazing food here, not to be missed. Ate here twice while we were in town. Had the Walnut pasta sauce and other wonderful entrees. Service was special, even when we had to be seated in the back room on a busy weekend nite, our server was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu.

We have gone to Cassarianos on several occasions throughout the months of November and April and on every occasion I always felt rushed and that the staff couldn't wait to get the table cleaned for the next customer. Believe me we are not the customer who sits for hours and orders an appetizer and water. We order bottles of wine,... More

We enjoyed a delicious lunch at Cassariano's this week while in Venice. Our service was excellent and the food was very good. We look forward to another visit to Venice.

This is not your grandparents Italian restaurant! It is modern, clean, and upscale but is also warm and friedly with excellent service. I have eaten here several times and tried something different each time. Each choice was superbly fresh and delicious!! On my last visit, Sunday evening, there was a great jazz ensemble. Although it was a bit noisier than... More

I love their Polenta appetizer, when it is cooked right it is the very best, but when the cheese is still cold inside it is very disappointing. Veal meatballs incredible, nice Italian wine selection, so close to five stars, it hurts

We took advantage of the summer lull to eat indoors at this lovely Italian restaurant on the main street in Venice (Venice Avenue.) We ordered an appetizer, pasta and salad for our group and everyone was happy with their meals. The food is very fresh and the service is wonderful. The only secret: Don't arrive between lunch and dinner as... More

Great Italian meal, we all had different foods (4 people) and everyone enjoyed it. The Italian food was great, the lamb and the seafood meals were also enjoyed by others in our group. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Vencie FLorida, it's right on Venice Avenue.
