This excellent Italian restaurant in the Mini City Shopping Center, closed its doors on Jan. 4, 2013 and will not re-open anywhere else. I had eaten there several times, and concur with the other reviewers; it was a great place, and will be sorely missed.

You know how those whole in the wall eateries are right? Well this one is undoubtedly the best in all of Raleigh! The food...oh the food! And the ambiance is a little mafia, if you know what I mean :) LOVE IT! Is it time to eat yet ;-)

You would have never thought that you would find such a restaurant in a shopping center on a highway. From the moment you walk in the door, they make you feel at home. The food is excellent and often the chef comes out to see if you are satisfied. They do not mind special request and always try to accomodate... More

Great food at very reasonable prices. The atmosphere is relaxing, in this unusual strip mall location. Do not let that fool you, the food is very good. It is not a upscale Italian dining, but family friendly, so sometimes there are a bevy of children.

Dinner at Casalinga on capital blvd last night was fabulous. Bread basket was abundantly varied and warmed us from the cold night outside,, as did a fine glass of red. Spaghetti carbonara was fabulous, rich and creamy. The rustic pasta dish my friend has was earthy and perfect. Atmosphere is old school Italian...think candles, Sinatra music, and waiters with long... More

Although not in the nicest strip mall, the Casalinga is one that you must find and visit! The staff is extremely fun and caring and the owner is always nearby to add to you experience. The traditional meals are just that, traditional.

It's a little small and in an unassuming strip mall, but the food was very good. We had excellent service and one of the owners came by our table to ask how things were. When we talked about it being cold, she overheard us and turned down the air conditioning!

We have been going to Casalinga for the past 18 years and we have never had a bad meal! It is always the best food ever!! Very well run and Josephine, the owner, greets everyone as if they are family every single time! Some nights there is also entertainment. Don't let the location fool you, if you are looking for...

My husband and I loved this place since we first moved to Raleigh from NY. The owner/chef was wonderful to chat with and the food was consistently good to amazing. The last two visits- in June 2012 and September 2012 were quite disappointing. The food was okay but not as bright in flavor as it used to be, my sons... More
