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

This is a very busy and noisy place. We were seven people and could only hear the person next to you. The menu is very varied and quite good. 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

Everything on the menu looked interesting and we ordered antipasti, primi, and secondi. The waiter was very helpful with advice about a wine and we were delighted with everything. The desserts were also a difficult choice. I was particularly impressed with the list of after dinner drinks: besides a nice set of sweet wines, single malts and such, there was... More

We had been meaning to try Il Casale for a while and when a friend told me she really liked it that sealed the deal. We sat outside, which was nice, but they could use a little more lighting - it was hard to see our food and by the time dessert came hard to read the menus. We each... More

I've been hearing raves about this place for years and we finally made it on a recent Saturday evening. The semi-industrial feel of the old firehouse is an interesting contrast to the authentic Italian fare. There seemed to be many regulars in the crowd and we felt perhaps our waiter would have preferred if we were ones as well. He... More
