I have been going to Cucina Casale's since it opened. After moving to Washington DC, every time I go back to Itasca, I always eat there. Delicious and family friendly.

I went here for lunch with a friend. We have been here for dinner before, but not for lunch. I am surprised it can stay open for lunch. It was empty! The menu has many Italian choices; entrees, salads, and sandwiches. It didn't appear to be a lunch-only menu. We each ordered a pizza. The menu says you can only... More

We were not familiar with the area and with not much else to choose from, we opted for Cucina Calsale. It was a good choice. It is a small bistro-type establishment. You walk through a small bar area to get to the dining room. the dining area is separated from the bar by a 3/4 wall. Our food server was... More

If you are looking for a place that has a great pizza this is it. This is the fourth time that I have been here with family and friends. And they do not disappoint with the quality of the food . Every thing on the menu is very good. Good family run restaurant. Good family.

Neighborhood area of Itasca, easy to park, and friendly service. Food is very good a few times I have been there. This place is surprising not busy on week nights. Try it yourself.

If you are looking for a local joint with real authentic italian food and an atmosphere like off the tv show Cheers, then this is it! They make you feel like part of the family and the food is just awesome! Highly recommend if you are ever in the area!

I've been to Casale's more than a dozen times. The staff are always friendly, particularly Fran and Reno, the owner. There's always a few special dishes and the regular menu doesn't disappoint. Wine list is very inexpensive, so if you're after top-shelf wines, probably best to keep walking. I've had veal piccata, rib eye, pasta, calamari, deserts. They've all been... More

The food here is okay. Not spectacular. They were out of one of the specials which did sound good so I settled on another dish. It was okay, not great. Others in my party were not too impressed with their food choices. Service was excellent and if the food was a little better I would consider going back again.
