Wishing we had tried another restaurant since there are so many great one in Providence. The experience and food were average. The waiter tried but he had way too many tables.

My youngest son booked the reservation and we celebrated two birthdays and had a ball. The restaurant was elegant. My middle sons girlfriend loves coming out to New England just because there are so many great places to eat. We had a couple of tasty appetizers which were delicious. For the main course we all had something different and shared... More

During a quick stopover in Providence, I met up with two dear old friends for dinner. We went to their favorite Italian: Cassarino's Restaurant. At first I wasn't sure. We were seated upstairs by a very young assistant Maitre D'. In fact, looking around, all the faces were young. I couldn't imagine how these kids could make for a 4-star... More

Went for a family member's birthday. We ordered appetizers, which were all delicious. Ordered chicken parm, chicken was overcooked and the sauce tasted terrible. 4 of us got something with the pasta sauce and all had the same opinion on it. My family said they wouldn't return; I would, just wouldn't order anything with the marinara sauce.

Stopped in for a couple of drinks at the bar and ended up having a few appetizers. The bartenders were helpful and attentive. The Calamari was very good as was a fig and balsamic pizza. The bartender recommended the special of the night, a beet and arugula salad with lightly fried goat cheese. It was excellent.

There were four of us. We had clams with white sauce, chicken Marsala, spicy pasta and pasta with broccoli and sausage. Our meals were incredible-delicious. Staff was kind and attentive. Bread with oil and cheese was on point. We went at dinner rush time so our make took about 45 minutes-they were clearly fresh but a bit of a long... More
