This is a local restaurant we haven’t visited for a while. Celebrated my husband’s birthday. It was like going back home. Same familiar staff welcoming us back. The entire menu was available plus the specials. Excellent food and service. Not rushed to leave. It was nice to see the restaurant busy even on a Monday night! Thanks for a memorable evening. We will see you again soon.

We visited on a Sunday evening, so it was quieter. The service is always personable and professional. We love the Italian food here, and their margherita pizza is the best!

2nd time dining here in a month. Authentic Italian food. Calamari app is excellent, as was the Eggplant Parmigiana special. Cheese Ravioli is delicious. Both pizzas, prosciutto and the rapini sausage pizza really good. Tiramisu to die for as well as the Pistachio Cheesecake. Highly recommend.

This is my 3rd time dining at this restaurant and I absolutely love it! Everything I’ve eaten here is absolutely delicious!
I’m not from the area but I can see that the staff and owner have relationships with local residents who frequent the restaurant which is always a great vibe. Everybody is very friendly, service is always on point and the food.. so good!
Would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

It would be nice to have pizza scissors instead of a steak knife to cut the pizza. Just to messy and not practical!

Not a fan of flies in restaurant either, not sure what you can do, however I didn't eat any so that's good news!!

We sat outside on a very windy evening, so the noise and ambiance was a bit less than perfect, however the staff , service and food more than made up for it! Everyone we interacted with was amazing and helpful!

We celebrated our 52nd anniversary at Casalinga and the food and the service were outstanding. Nothing was to much trouble for the kitchen to accommodate.

Wonderful place and wonderful people and food.

We will be back and soon.

The food was great. Initially service was fantastic and they came with surprise dessert for the birthday we were celebrating. However, when it was time to get the bill, I couldn't get anyone's attention for quite a while. I also had to walk the bill inside to get change in a timely manner. It seemed as if the staff was overwhelmed with a sudden influx of tables. I understand restaurants are having staffing issues right now so I will try them again when the vaccine passports kick in and after the patio has closed for the season.

After being seated, we were left alone for 15 to 20 minutes. It was early, 5:45 reservation. They did bring water and bread then nothing. Wanted to order wine while we decided on food but that was not offered. Poor.
Once they figured out whose table it was, service and food was good.

What a gem of a find in Clarkson village. Pasta was made perfect al dente. Practical outdoor seating is set-up in the parking lot for the pandemic. Looking forward to our next visit!
