We just returned from a wonderful trip to Rome and Tuscany........had a great time, but always felt a bit cheated with the food that we ate.....did our research, watched the reviews....we were somewhat disappointed. Recently, we attended a wonderful 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration for our dear friends, the night of our return from Italy, at Cassariano. We have frequented this restaurant since it's opening years ago, loved the food, but perhaps we took it a bit for granted, as we live here, and have enjoyed it many times. Well, we have to say, upon our return from this, our third trip to Italy, my husband and I both looked at each other, and said unanimously, "by far, the best Italian meal we have had including our trip!" What a treasure this fabulous restaurant is. The food, amazing, flavorful, presentation beautiful, fresh, a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. The wine selections, wonderful! The service, friendly, beyond efficient, and professional. Truly a pleasure all the way around. Our event was private, we shared the room behind the dining room. The event was intimate, and an event we will never forget. Our friends were delighted as well. The meal began with a Caprese salad, delicious, and a polenta cake with fontina cheese and white truffle oil......amazing......different, and beautiful! There was a spinach salad with pancetta and goat cheese and a choice of three different yet delicious and artistically presented entrees, including a pork, salmon, and ravioli dish......we had a choice, chose the salmon and were not disappointed. Absolutely delicious....melt in the mouth...flavorful, mild out of this world. Everyone loved their individual choices. We have to say, thank you to our friends for hosting such a spectacular loving event, but also thank you to Cassariano for reminding us sometimes we don't have to travel half way around the world to savor the flavors of our favorite destination! Molto Bene!
