Have been to Casalinga several times and it never disappoints. The food and service are both consistently good. When looking for a local restaurant for Valentine’s Dinner it was a logical choice. Reservations are a must, it’s a very popular spot !

Food and atmosphere are always top notch. Great friendly service and the only thing I would change would be to bring back fresh bread instead of pita for eating all the phenomenal sauces left behind from each dish. Thanks!

Our first time for an early valentine. So glad we reserved as it was really busy and I understand why. The gentleman at the front, maybe the owner sat us right away. Took a little long for the initial server contact but from then on service was great. Food was amazing - fresh, tasty and just the right amount. Felt very satisfied in the stomach and wallet when I left. Want to make this my regular go to. Can’t wait to get back.

Nice greeting at the door. Excellent service. Wide ranging menu and great food. What more could you ask for? (The house wine was a bit pricey)

We went for a pre-Valentine's dinner. Great job by all! Superb food, great service and the owner, Mario, visited our table to ensure all was well. Also enjoyed trying some items on their new menu.

Service was outstanding😀
Food was average and expensive for what you received!
The restaurant was too bright with lighting over their bar as bright as any operating room!
Not sure I would return

The restaurant was quite busy as it was a Friday evening, so we were glad to have reserved a table. Our server was amazingly attentive, and she even translated the specials that were written on the chalkboard in Italian into plain English. The food is excellent, especially the calamari fritti (which also has a few shrimp & artichokes) and spicy aioli. Our mains were very good. We had the beef stew, which was supposed to come with polenta but we substituted other accompaniments.

The wine list is comprised of mainly Italian wines, and doesn’t list the name of the wine. So you’re left selecting wines by the type and price, which worked out very well for the two bottles we selected.

We were stuffed from our mains, so never tried their selection of desserts.

Overall, a great evening, and we’ll definitely be back.

The food is excellent. They just started a new menu, which has so many delicious choices. The chocolate mousse dessert was divine. The staff are terrific and the owner is extremely welcoming. There is no better place for a lovely home cooked Italian meal.

Enjoyed another outstanding meal. Was nice to see an updated menu, with lots of old favorites and the addition of some new items.
We enjoyed the gnocchi with lamb ragu, chicken parmigiana, pappardelle with wild boar meat sauce, wood fired pizza. No complaints form anyone!
Service was as warm and friendly as always!

Food was great! No complaints there, staff was attentive. Place was so busy because it was a Saturday night. We will be back, but try for a quieter time. Tables are close together so conversations have no privacy. Still a great date night.

It was our anniversary so we decided to make reservations at this unassuming restaurant located in a strip mall. Warm, cozy and inviting with excellent food and service in a quiet perfectly lit space. Undoubtedly the best mushroom risotto I have ever tasted. As an added bonus our waiter brought us complimentary warm Italian heart shaped donuts in honour of our anniversary. Great food and a wonderfully attentive staff. Thank you!

My favourite local restaurant in Clarkson Village. The owner Mario can prepare some of my favourite dishes, even if not on the menu.

Checked a few days in advance, what a treat ! Osso Buco or Cioppino coming right to your table !
