Excellent service with a very helpful waiter. Comfortable seating. Noise level was good. Good wine selection. Food arrived on time. Specials were very good (had a veal dish and asked to substitute spinach for the potato - done and at no extra charge). The calamari appetizer was good for the table of six and delicious. Nice place for a special... More

Over a year ago I was there with my sons and friends. It was excellent then. My youngest son Just graduated from Bryant and what better place to go was back to Cassarino's. The family was came in hungry and thirsty and left full and very impressed. Our server Peter was great. He kept the glasses full and food coming.... More

Good Italian food. A bit on the heavy side with lots of cheese but tasty and good for the soul. I had the veal Santinbuca, which is veal with ham and cheese over a bed of baby spinach. It had some sort of gravy on top. The portions are very generous.

Had a terrific experience. Food was excellent. Atmosphere very nice. Had a entertainment that was just right volume. Loud enough to enjoy but not so loud that you couldn't hold a conversation at the table. Really enjoyable time.

We had a fantastic dinner, seated upstairs which was really nice. Fantastic wait staff. We had the mozzerella marinara which was excellent. Also recommend the Pollo Milano, it was delicious and enough for two meals. My sons both got the Paperedelle Bolognese and they loved it. Upstairs seating is really nice.

Providence is noted for its good Italian restaurants, and Cassarino's is representative of that reputation. The food was delicious with generous portions, it was nicely presented, the service was good, the surroundings pleasant. We enjoyed the dinner. Would gladly return.

1st time sitting downstairs in back room, and pleasantly surprised. It appears it has been remodeled. Not rushed and space between tables. I had the veal chop which was excellent. Also veal and chicken saltimbocca were very good. Service was good. Valet parking . Nice experience.

Three colleagues and I had Sunday evening dinner at Cassarino's, which I and the others found very good. The fixed price 3-course menu was $34.95, which is a good deal if you order steaks. For the main course I had the grilled salmon, which was excellent, and Caesar salad and tiramisu before and after. The restaurant is in the Federal... More

A pretty average restaurant overall. Service was decent but a bit incompetent. We overheard our waiter poorly handle some joking from the guests at a nearby table. He actually seemed offended by lighthearted teasing. That stuff might pass at a pizza joint but cassarino's is trying for something classier. Food was uninspired. Gloopy sauces. The cocktail I had was way... More

Loved the Appy hour drink and appetizer specials. Great service and the desserts were great. The appetizer sampler was a perfect way to try 3 mini desserts, the tiramisu being my favorite but the creek brûlée was also great, the cannoli being my least favorite as I am a fan of the more traditional ricotta filling. Definitely would go back... More
