Best Gnocci with Gorgonzola
Only complaint is the tables are far too close together. I felt like the people next to us were part of our group.

My wife and I enjoy quality, healthy and consistently enjoyable meals. Casalinga is our neighborhood Italian getaway, when we wosh we could stroll up to an authentic restaurant in Tuscany, but don’t want to fly over.

The place is owner-run, the food always delivered in a timely manner with wonderful presentation, Italian flare and wonderful flavors.

I had the Penne with sausage, my wife loved the Fresh Grilled Sardines with salad, and the Capresensalad my University age daughter was stunning.

Great food, excellent value and consistently good. We have been dining here for 5 years.

Easy parking (free) and always large portions for doggie-bag lunches the next day.

Highly recommend.

Went on a Saturday night. They had two sittings 6:30 and 8 pm. Got there at 8 and had to wait 15 mins for table as no one from earlier sitting was done. Wish they just took regular reservations . Food was good and price was reasonable. Had to ask what specials were. People who sat down after us got to order before us. Other then that service was good.

Service always great. The food is made perfectly. I had pizza this time and previous visits I ordered pasta. Salads are good too. Definitely recommend. Only issue is dinner reservations are inconvenient. They have set times.

The food was hot and delicious a good size portion. I had the pesto pasta with chicken which was very tasty and my husband who has a white wine allergy had the seafood pasta, which the chef modified based on his allergy and it too was very tasty.
We will definately be back real soon as it is rare to find a decient place these days.

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.
