“Great family Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

I've been to Casale's more than a dozen times. The staff are always friendly, particularly Fran and Reno, the owner. There's always a few special dishes and the regular menu doesn't disappoint. Wine list is very inexpensive, so if you're after top-shelf wines, probably best to keep walking. I've had veal piccata, rib eye, pasta, calamari, deserts. They've all been great.

Whenever I have business meetings in the area, I bring them to Casale's and never get any complaints.

They have a small outdoor seating area and a take-out pizza and entre' storefront next door, too.

“Food was okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

The food here is okay. Not spectacular. They were out of one of the specials which did sound good so I settled on another dish. It was okay, not great. Others in my party were not too impressed with their food choices. Service was excellent and if the food was a little better I would consider going back again.
