It took forever for my bread and drinks to arrive , that should be the first thing that arrives to my table. My appetizers arrived before my drinks. Slow service , definitely needs new servers but food was good after a long wait

While the food was tasty the place was rather gross, at least on the 3rd floor it was. Carpeting is disgusting with a nasty odor you could smell when sitting at the dark dingy table & the bathroom was old with sticky sticky floors. Our waiter was horrible and we felt as though he often forgot about us.

My husband and I went here with 6 of my friends for my 30th birthday. I ordered off of the” restaurant week” menu and got the calamari with banana peppers and balsamic for an appetizer, the frutti di mare for dinner and the tiramisu for dessert. The calamari was to die for! It was crispy, tangy and delicious. I could... More

The pastas were good but expensive and kind of overrated. The portions were very large so if possible, share. Service was average

Food was good! Although I wasn't approached by a waiter for at-least 20 mins. It took about 10 minutes for our bread. Service was super slow. Not sure if I'll be back. Friend of mine worked there and he said "don't ever sit downstairs ever! Sit upstairs" maybe I'll try.

Had lunch here and was amazed at the size & quality of the servings, it was like getting a Cadillac meal for the price of a bus pass! A true steal and world class. Not a complaint but would note its not "fast food" as meals are cooked to order, a very relaxed & delicious meal !

Visited Cassarino's in the heart of Federal Hill. Offering a good selection of food and wines at fair prices. The service was great. We really enjoyed our meals and deserts. I deffinetly would go back and refer this restaurant to others. Valet parking is available, parking on the street is sometimes possible within a couple of blocks.

I can not get enough of this restaurant. Food is always well prepared and substantial. For lunch, you can not find a better deal anywhere. Ok McDonalds is cheaper but it has neither the quality of food, atmosphere and service you find at Cassarino's.

I haven't been to Cassarino's in nearly 20 years but recently returned while visiting colleges in Providence. It was exactly as I remembered it. Note: we went on a Monday night and there was no one there which is a nice treat compared to the weekend nights when it is packed! We ordered the fried calamari for an appetizer which... More

I went to Cassarino's a month ago with my family that was visiting me. We went on a Saturday night and it was hard getting reservations for 12 people but Cassarino's let us. The restaurant is very cozy. The waiter was really friendly and always asked how we were doing. I got the aurora pasta. It was amazing! The portion... More
