A Sunday evening show at PPAC had us looking for a restaurant in the area and we found Cassarino's on Federal Hill. Directly on Atwells Ave., it was easy to find and convenient. Valet parking was much appreciated on this snowy, wet winter evening. The ambiance is contemporary and understated. The dining area we were in did not have any... More

We were in R.I. for the day and we were told about this wonderful restaurant on Federal Hill. We were happy that we called for a reservation because unknown to us it was restaurant week. They had great specials or 3 courses for $35 on any entrees on menu. We didn't take advantage because only one in 4 had a... More

Behind the unpretentious storefront was one of the best, if not the best, Italian restaurant in Providence. It started with 2 flavors of calamari appetizer - Rhode Island style with banana peppers, and balsamic calamari. The latter is absolutely the best. The fruitti di mare was so flavorful, and there was pretty of seafood (shrimp, clam, fish, scallop) in it.... More

Attended a large family function that was offered a reduced but varied menu. I sat at a table where all selections were ordered; veal, chicken, eggplant parm; sirloin steak and a chicken marsala. All the entrees were done well; large portions, prepared in a traditional fashion with complimentary sides. All were preceded by a caesar salad that included chunks of... More

We had lunch here during Christmas week and loved the food. I had the Cassarino, a breaded chicken cutlet topped with cheese, eggplant and ham. It was huge and delicious. My husband had the chicken parm sandwich. The bread was crunchy and fresh. Their house salad dressing is a lemony vinaigrette with loads of flavor. Our server, Michael, was very... More

We have visited Cassarino's many times. The food is very good and the service is always very attentive. Whether you are going for Italian or something a bit more out of the box like duck or a filet, the meal is generally excellent. If you have a large group I would recommend reservations. Last year (with reservations) we brought a... More

Went here tonight with some friends. Service was great, food was good. They do not make their own own pasta but everyone's meals were good.

Based on the reviews I wasn't expecting something great, but Cassarino's was really quite good! The mushroom salad is really great and the pesto ravioli were also very good. Two people at our table had clams & linguine and also thought it was very good. They also bring really great bread to the table. Not sure how it compares to... More
