Dinner on Saturday night was wonderful. We first sat at the bar and our bartender was amazing . She made my husband the best martini he has had in a long time. She was fun funny and engaging. The hostess could not have been more wondeful. We wanted a seat on the first floor by the window and after a... More

Ate on the 2nd floor so it was much quieter than the first floor. Waiter was very attentive without being over bearing. Nice Cesar salad to start, followed with fruitti di mar. Was nice, box pasta, cooked well, seafood and sauce were great. A nice meal.

My husband and I dined at Cassarinos Ristorante after a colleague recommended them for dinner. It was a very short walk from the Providence Hilton to the restaurant located in the Federal Hill neighborhood. We were immediately greeted and taken to our table. The place was not crowded and our servers were very attentive. As an appetizer we ordered the... More

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 them because it can... 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
