Went to this restaurant before getting on the GO train to attend concert in Toronto. Food tasted great. Service really quick because we said we had a train to catch.

The tall bald man (owner) was in a rush to get us out immediately after we paid which tuibed the whole experience for us. He even started moving tables and chairs and placing them directly beside us, and drying cutlery while he THREW and slammed them into the tray. Seemed like as soon as they had their $, they wanted nothing to do with us. Food was good though.

We were there for my daughter’s graduation celebration. I had to call and tell them we were delayed and running late and they easily accommodated my new time. Best restaurant in Oakville / Mississauga area for authentic Italian.

We went for my husband's birthday last night and I had clearly stated that on the booking but no one acknowledge that. Anyways, the food was decent. We ordered pizza, calamari, two pastas and wine. We really enjoyed the pizza as it tasted very fresh. The only downside is the waitress seemed like she didn't care less. Kinda like she was bothered by serving people. She also got my husbands pasta order incorrectly and another waiter had asked if we wanted to switch but my husband didn't care and took it. He was kinda nervous that if he sent it back, it would be 20 mins to make. The food did come out fast but we didnt want my food cold or me eating while waiting for his. I would go back but hopefully we dont get the same blonde waitress.

Great neighborhood restaurant with excellent food, nice selection of pastas as well as seafood and meat options on the menu. Did a great job on the cocktails we ordered and had a decent wine menu with some reasonable options. Nice ambiance and friendly efficient service. Definitely a nice place to go for an enjoyable Italian meal.

We've gone to Casalinga several times and this may have been the last. The food is average to good, depending on the dish. On this particular visit my husband ordered a hot onion soup that came barely lukewarm. When he asked to have it warmed they took it back, brought it out late minus the croutons. When we asked for the croutons, those came out much later by which time the soup had gotten cold again. The servers were apologetic and yet the soup appeared on the bill. Disappointing customer service.

Enjoyed the food, went with a friend and was catching up after a long time,we were asked to leave as there was another couple waiting for our table, had the waiter waited 2 mins we would have left on our own. This was not pleasant to us as we spent well over $100 for our meals. May not go back because of this. Recommend going if you want to eat not if you want to catch up with anyone.

Family dinner 4 adults. Guy who sat us bald guy very unfriendly hardly spoke to us despite me trying. Lots of yummy bread and oil as we were waiting for one of our guests. Food was good but we wanted coffee and dessert and they ignored us and gave us the bill. Very obvious they wanted us out if there was one other table still there so it was later but we still wanted to eat? Just left us With a bad feeling as our family will not be together again for some time so we wanted to continue with dessert. So we had to find somewhere else for coffee and dessert which was a pain.

Food was very good as was the service. Grilled calamari was tender and cappuccino the best I've had in ages. Excellent restaurant. Will definitely return again. Very small place so reservations are recommended. We went on a Friday night and they turned people away.

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!

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.
