Excellent menu with wide variety of good Italian food. Including osso buco, my favorite. Good service, nice people. Intimate, not very big.

This New Year's (2022) was our third or fourth dine-in experience at Casalinga's and similar to previous experiences, it was an highly enjoyable experience. The ambiance was great, the service very professional, and the food second to none. We tried the Lasagne al Cinghiale (with wild boar) and Pappardelle al Ragu Osso Buco (with veal) and both dishes were absolutely delicious. We tried an Italian red house wine and it too hit the mark. In the past, we have also ordered take-out on several occasions (Pepperoni e Funghi and Margherita pizzas, Polpette di Carne (meatballs with cheese in tomato sauce), Bruschetta, etc.), all very, very good Italian food. And we find the prices very reasonable for such good Italian food. We will continue to consider Casalinga's as one of our favorite go-to Italian restaurants here in Mississauga/Clarkson Village. Highly recommended!

We went to celebrate my Brothers birthday with the family. The ambience is very warm and inviting inside. The service from start to finish was quite good, very attentive and friendly throughout. We ordered some appetizers to share which arrived quick. For our mains we mostly had a table of variety of pasta and a funghi pizza.

They even brought out a pastry for my brother with a candle at the end. Something I thought was a very nice gesture!

We would definitely go back again, next time we crave some authentic Italian food. If you find yourself around South
Clarkson with some friends and hungry, head here for a great night of food and drinks.

Although we had a late seating before the kitchen closed, the meal was not rushed, which was appreciated.

In my experience, Casa has always been consistently good, with few exceptions. Last night, for my wife's birthday, I brought out the whole family, including the 3 girls. It was a very positive experience. The food was excellent.

A hidden gem! Lived in Mississauga for a long time and didn’t know about this restaurant. Staff were very friendly and attentive. Food was delicious. Really enjoyed the sardine appetizer. Lots of choices from the menu and specials.

Everyime we return to Casalinga we are overwhelmingly impressed with the owners pride and dedication to the food he serves, his staff and especially his customers! We went for an early quiet Christmas Eve dinner enjoying the delicious Calamari appetizer and two excellent entrees, my wife the fish special Branzino, Moi the veal marsala with a pasta. Usually fully booked the moderate sized restaurant was only filling to half capacity due to COVID but you should have seen the take our orders ramping up between 5:00 to 6:00! And, of course there was the owner trotting out to cars delivering platters and delivering heartfelt season greeting and appreciation to his beloved customers!! Our News Year resolution? Enjoy Casalinga more often!! ❤️

The mussels are the best. A meal in itself. The sauce is fantastic. My husband had a veal chop and I had branzini. Both dishes were great and the service was excellent.

This is a typical Italian restaurant. The menu is not very imaginative and the prices are hefty, but then again every specialty restaurant these days is. However, a bottle of wine at $50+ is excessive and I'm not talking about an impressive vintage. I think I will spend my dining out budget elsewhere.

This is a lovely restaurant. The staff was friendly and welcoming from the very beginning. Food was great and the ambiance is much nicer on the inside than you'd expect from the outside. We went for my mother's birthday and they treated her to a delicious Tiramisu as well. Overall, would definitely recommend!
