We keep coming back because the food and service is outstanding!
The appetizer special of Burrata cheese with tomato salad was delicious and the dinner special of salmon lasagna was amazing! It was light and creamy, but not too rich.
The pizza as always was great!

We've eaten here many times over the past couple years, and every time the food and service has been exceptional! They just need more space, tables, because it's too small for the demand.

Nice, intimate dining. Great authentic Italian with addition of gourmet twists. Lovely. Had lunch with a couple of friends and thoroughly enjoyed our meal and time. One friend and I split arugula salad (with grilled eggplant), and a thin crust pizza. All excellent.

Best authentic Italian in mississauga. Don’t waste money paying for all the glitz and glam at the other local places (e.g. Posta) - this is where the REAL Italians eat. You are treated like famiky and the place is ALWAYS packed. It’s very unassuming in small plaza but you will be blown away at freshness and quality of the food.

Was absolutely delighted by the high quality and tastiness of the food. I had travelled through Italy last year and this was the closest I’ve come to food tasting like it did over there. Best cappuccino I’ve had since my time in Rome. Had dinner with friends, will be taking my wife there soon.

The food was all amazing and our server was friendly and attentive. The layout of the restaurant though is very poor with tables way too close together. Two people are getting up anytime someone else wants to get up. The room also has very little ambiance, not warm or inviting at all. Also we felt like we were overstaying our welcome at 9:30pm as the music got turned off and clean up was well underway. Definitely not somewhere to hang out with friends for very long into en evening.
I would still go back though, because the food is so good.

We had a reservation for 8:00 pm on a Saturday night. We were seated close to 8:20 pm. The restaurant is really small so there was not really anywhere to go rather than stand at the door. We contemplated leaving but we decided to wait it out and we were glad we did. The food was really delicious. The menu had many nice pasta options which i love. The wine selection had a bit of everything. We had a California Pinot Noir and it was excellent and reasonably priced. Tiramisu was very good as well. Overall we had a great evening and we were glad we chose Casalinga Restaurant!!! We will be back.

4 of us tried apps and mains. Fried calamari a little salty. Caesar salad shared was great but slightly too much dressing. Caprese salad was fresh. Mixed seafood mains fresh and delicious. Risotto perfect. Shrimp linguine was fine. Service started a little oddly rushed then settled down.

My husband and I celebrated Valentines Day with a romantic dinner for two. The food & service was on point! We enjoyed the steamed mussels; fried zucchini flowers stuffed with cheese; along with a pizza with prosciutto, shaved Parmeggiano cheese & arugula. These items were just our appetizers! Food was fresh & served warm. Flavors were complemented and well balanced. Our mains included a seafood pasta and grilled sirloin. The ambiance was quaint and quiet enough to have an enjoyable conversation. We finished off our meal with Creme brûlé and tiramisu....both done to perfection! Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Second time dining here and will come back again. Meal prices are very reasonable given the portion size and ingredients. Having eaten at a few “upper scale” restaurants in the area, I’d rather dine at Casalinga. I had the Penne al Ragu di Coltello which had a nice layering of flavours.

The fact this place was packed during a snow storm speaks volumes about how good it is.
