Had a nice lunch there selections are minimal but adequate. If you do go order water for a drink or even better wine because they charge you $3.00 for the smallest coke glass I have even seen, can't be more than 4 oz's.

during our stay in venice and walking Venice Ave, this restaurant was always crowded for lunch and dinner. So we had to go and see what it was all about. Our last meal in Venice was here with friends. It was northern italian food, high end prices but excellent food. Lamb meatballs were excellent, veal chop superb, seafood stew excellent,... More

A bit pricey, but excellent meal. Everything was prepared fresh, the eggplant stuffed ravioli stood out.

The food was good but I feel it's overpriced. I liked my Wild Chilean Sea bass and my wife liked the Ahi Tuna. The tables are kind of close together and unfortunately we had a rather loud speaking group right next to us, so that was kind of annoying. Besides that the décor is nice and the service was excellent.... More

The best Italian restaurant in Venice, particularly if you want to get away from red sauce and have some truly imaginative dishes. They do wonders with many flavors and the presentation is beautiful. Only downside is they are very busy in season. No wonder why. We keep going back

We loved this place. Attentive service and, oh my, the food! Some had grouper and others had veal scaloppine. And rave reviews all around.

A terrific eating experience. Ate here with three others night of March 2, 2016. Women had the grouper special; men had the veal scaloppine. All prepared wonderfully. Michelle provided excellent service. It's unfair to compare Cassariano with many other Venice eateries because it provides gourmet dining as opposed to the ubiquitous seafood places. However, if you don't mind paying for... More

Though downtown Venice now has several Italian restaurants, Cassariano has remained our favorite. Others have food that is just as tasty but the food presentation at Cassariano takes it up a notch. This is our go-to restaurant for our wedding anniversary and where we take company.

Thank Karen R
