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

I stumbled upon this restaurant as a last effort to find a place to eat with my family in the area. I must admit the food was excellent ! I would defiantly return to it and recommend this place. I was surprised at how many places I ate at no longer exist. lets hope this one remains.

Our food was stunning. No other word for it. Stunning. Veal Marsala and Veal chop special. The meat...the sauce...the vegetables...even the presentation...flawless. Cooked to perfection, tender and succulent. Everything we could have wanted...and more! Appetizers were a fig special which was very special...and ravioli which was excellent as well. We had to leave to drive...they even gave us take away... More

Having been to a few spots in Federal Hill, Cassarinos is definitely our favorite spot to dine for Date Night, both alone or with other couples. The calamari is fabulous, as is the bruschetta appetizer, the wine/drink list is extensive (I recommend the Very Berry Martini!), and the Italian portions are generous. My husband orders the Veal Cassalinga every.single.time! I... More

You be hard pressed to find a local restaurant produce such high quality food. I've been going here for over 20 years and I truly love this place. Their Filet Mignon is hands down the best filet I've ever had, and priced at almost market value. The same dish at the capital grill, ruths chris, abe and louie's, etc. would... More

We gathered family for a birthday celebration on Sunday. Customer Appreciation offer of 3 courses for $35 was a great option for all of us. Everyone was very pleased with their selections, including salmon, veal, chicken, beef and shellfish. Appetizers and desserts were also excellent. We covered all the bases without any disappointment. Jason gave us great service; he was... More
