Come hungry! Great place with live music!

I came here with my husband for an anniversary dinner. The portions are huge, so if you get an appetizer at all I recommend splitting one if you want any chance at finishing your meal. We were there on a Thursday night and they had wonderful live music. I would not recommend sitting too close to... read more

disappointed at both the food and service. Waiter was very nice, polite and friendly which was good. Brought the salads and asked "would you like some pepper or cheese?" We said sure. It was never brought to us. Served the entrees without silverware and had to wait a few minutes for him to return to the table with it. My... More

Cassarino's is located in the Federal Hill section of Providence, R.I. It provides ample seating and has an upstairs with a street view. The food is awesome with large portions, and the service is impeccable. They have a nice wine ist, and offer valet parking.

First a recommendation. If you want to talk to the people at your table ask for seating on the second floor. First floor is so noisy you can't hear yourself think. Second recommendation if the wait person suggests the appetizer platter don't order it unless you are not going to have anything else to eat. If you order an entree... More

It was a bit noisy but tables are in close proximity to each other. The restaurant does have some booths which is nice. The bar was busy. Food portions are large. Dishes such as The Cassarino and the Cassalinga are excellent. You might to request extra sauce as I always seem to need more. Pasta was al dente and each... More

It was a special night for my daughter and son-in-law as they had just purchased their first home. My daughter picked Cassarino's because she is living in Rhode Island and has eaten there before. I was pleasantly surprised by the service and quality and quantity of the food. The chicken and veal parm dishes were excellent and my son-in-law's cassarino... More

My wife and I decided to have a date night since our kids where away for the weekend. We were seated within minutes of arriving. Our server was wonderful, pleasant, and enjoyable. She made the dinner much more enjoyable since she knew what she was doing. The only complaint I have was the sauce with the Chicken Parm dinner tasted... More

We were looking for some place new to eat and drove through Federal Hill looking for anyplace that stood out. It was raining and they had valet parking at the door. That was the first plus. We were seated right away and the food came along quickly. Service was good also. The salads were much better than we expected or... More

Had a great evening with family at this restaurant but not because of the food. Four of us ordered short ribs, two of us had bone fragments in the dish. I decided against complaining, but the quality of ribs was poor. I have never had peas and carrots in short ribs that were mushy and greasy. Service was awkward, waiters... More
