Great choices, super service and good prices. Enjoyed lunch with the girls, 6 different entrees and everyone loved their meal. The salmon was a big hit as well as the eggplant parm. Can't say enough good things about the experience...oh wait...yes one more thing..the creme brulee was fantastic!!

I ordered the special salmon stuffed ravioli with cream sauce with peas. Excellent. All dishes were very well presented (you first eat with your eyes.) Starters were a caesar salad (with polenta), and sliced tomatoes with balsamic vinegar (tasty). Server was very attentive and patient with my wife's questions.

I had the Antipasto di Mare which is on the menu as an appetizer but you can make a meal out of it. Fresh and tasty

When they coined the phrase "you eat with your eyes first," they were talking about Cassariano. The most beautiful presentation of food on Venice Avenue. Not really a cozy, romantic restaurant, but very clean, good service and very good food. I highly recommend the antipasto de mare, a cold seafood salad, which is large enough to be an entree.

My fiancé and I were heading to Venice Florida for a night out, about 30 minutes from our home. What a nice surprise to run into this gem in Venice. A bit on the pricey side, but the food was delicious. It was a Tuesday night and rather early, about 6 pm for dinner. The place was fairly empty, but... More

We had lunch with a group of 24. One waitress did it all with help from a great kitchen and got us out in about an hour. All of us were very happy with our meals. The food was delicious, especially the seafood salad appetizer, the penne bolognese, the salmon and the chicken Milanese. This is the best in town.

As you can see, by scanning the list of reviews, they are consistently rated 5/5 (in both food and service) by all but a very few. Our experience was no different. We chose a Sunday evening, knowing they had a jazz band playing from 6 pm. (Boy, were they great!) We had a leisurely multi-course dinner, with halibut and duck... More

There is no shortage of good Italian restaurants in the Bradenton-Sarasota area but this is still one of the best ones we've been to. I could have deducted points for the poor glass of Chianti I got but the food was so outstanding that it more than made up for it. Starting with a very different tasting roll, I followed... More

Go to Sharky's for the sunset, go to Cassariano's for dinner. Amazing! Northern Italy dishes that you will never forget. So delish, coming from a Venice local.
