We have eaten here several times and just about everything we have had has been fresh, well-prepared and delicious. The arancini and calamari appetizers are always excellent. On this visit we had the pasta special, the grilled cod, and the scallops. All were delicious. Service is attentive and not intrusive. Cocktails are also excellent. Not an inexpensive meal, but a...

We shared a panna cotta for desset that was excellent. The food was all excellent, the service good too. A great night out. I suppose the... More

We went here for dinner and ordered the "Ferrari", which is a set price for "chefs choice items". We more or less told them what we didn't want and they went from there. The food was very good, however, it's the service that impressed me the most. They have plenty of wait staff so you always feel like they are... More

Cannot say enough about having this place in the suburbs! It reminds me of Sfoglia in NY! Food is spectacular! Wait staff is always smiling and there for your slightest need!! Reservations are a good idea!

I have eaten at Il Casale several times, and it never disappoints. This past saturday(11/1) I brought some family from out of town, and we had a fabulous time! Excellent appetizers, great wine list, and the best bowl of pasta you can get this side of the north end! The specials are always intriguing as well, and the option of... More

Had the grilled swordfish, so moist. Others at the table had the pumpkin ravioli, pork with broccoli rabe, flank steak all were over the top. I tried them all. The place was packed and yet the service was quick and friendly. Love the atmosphere!... Would go back. It is in an old firehouse, still has the pole to slide down..

While visiting friends in Belmont decided to look for a place for dinner. Drove to Belmont center and saw the sign for this restaurant. It was Saturday night and when we walked in the restaurant was busy and vibrant. We decided to seat at the bar since there was a wait for tables. The food it's incredibly good, we loved... More

We has two kinds of meat balls which were both very good as were the calamari with fried lemon. The bread with dipping oil was wonderful. The creamy pasta dishes were... More
