We usually don't eat at Italian restaurants because we can make it better at home, but our little one had a request for pesto. Believe it or not, pesto is not that easy to find even in Little Italy! I had the Pollo Milano, which was fantastic and we had pesto ravioli and pesto linguine, both fabulous. Service was friendly,... More

Stopped in for lunch on Sat afternoon. Excellent Sicilian steak came with roasted potatoes, tomatoes, olives and peppers. Shrimp scampi also very good. Desert was cannoli lightly cinnamon flavored w chocolate sauce. Fresh, delicious. They are very proud of "everything from scratch". Well trained staff. All in all, what eating out should be.

The wait staff was a bit slow nd even though it was a week night the place was fairly crowded. Luckily we were seated upstairs in an open table where we didn't feel cramped. We have visited here in 08' and just recall that our food was very good. This time I must say I thought it was excellent. my... More

I was hosting a work conference and was in charge of setting up a group dinner for 12 of us. After many discussions with my work mates, I settled on Cassarino's on Federal Hill as it would allow people to get a taste of RI Italian and there were many things on the menu to choose from. We made reservations... More

We were directed to this eatery by friends who had been there and told that it was the best Italian restaurant in Providence. We were not disappointed!!! The menu was full of tempting dishes which took some time to decide upon what we wanted. We ended up ordering different meals and shared them. The portions were HUGE and we took... More

It's hard to go wrong with any of the italian restaurants on Federal Hill, but this one is easily my favorite! Delivious classic italian faire plus! Great service, consistently good all around. Parking can be a bit tough during busy nights, especially in summer on weekends but oh so worth it! Use the valet if you'd rather avoid a short... More
