For being a relatively slow night, the service was not great and the food was just ok. Have had a much better experience other times we've visited!
The pizza was delicious-thin crust and very tasty sauce. Hit the spot!
Everything about the experience was positive. The waitress was especially gracious helping us to decide on deserts etc. And the food was outstanding.
Great experience! Food, service, and atmosphere exceeded expectations!
The red snapper with wild rice and the slow roasted salmon---both well prepared and presented, delicious and generous proportions.
All workers inside and outside the restaurant were most welcoming, unpretentious, competent, and professional.
My wife and I were able to talk in normal tones and hear each other while still hearing Frank Sinatra in the background. A very enjoyable evening.
Very friendly, and casually cool restaurant. Great food, everything we had was very delicious. The croquettes were fantastic. Would recommend and go back.
The food was great. The service was amazing. I hesitate to use waitress because they were so good to us, but our waitress was great. I haven’t experienced a great brunch out where an establishment was just so phenomenal with everything they did. Great food, great service, great people what more could you ask for! Thank you and I will be back soon.
This place was just ok. I was expecting better bc of the reviews but everything was mediocre with a few exceptions. Salad had almost no dressing the wine we ordered was out of stock, snapper and pork chops both dry. None of the food came out at the same time. All 5 dinners came out within a few minutes of each other. I would not recommend or go back.
I was so excited to go to Casolare, and when I saw that they were doing Restaurant Week AND the carbonara was an option, I was sold on taking a group there. The place is beautiful and was perfect for our group! However, three of us ordered the carbonara and had been enthusiastically informed that it would be done well since it was done as they do in Italy. We were so sad when it came out and lacked the unctuous creamy sauce that normally makes a carbonara, and one person commented that it tasted like noodles with bacon and a ton of pepper. Though the service was good and the other dishes were well-received, the carbonara just made us sad.
Delicious chicken parm! This is a lovely restaurant to go to for a terrific meal. The bar area has a neighborhood feel. The GM is a gem!
What a fantastic neighbor restaurant find! Such great ambiance to match their delicious Italian menu choices. And while I thought the chicken parm was great, I was a bit disappointed with my dessert. I like hot fudge on my sundaes hot.
Great place. Good food, good menu, good service. Martini could have been a bit drier.
We had been to Casolare several times in the past and are "newly" impressed with this large yet cozy restaurant. The ambiance is warm, italian tiled and accented with modern paintings. The booths are inviting and spacious and tables are spread apart so as to not be disturbed by other diners conversations. Our server was amiable, warm, attentive and her recommendations were fabulous. As someone who makes fresh pasta at home I was impressed with the"simple" spaghetti dish bursting with flavor, just the right amount of sauce, basil and parmesan. The fresh mozzarella appetizer was outstanding. We are delighted to have this wonderful gem in our neighborhood.
Every time we go to Casolare we ask ourselves afterwards why we don't go more often. The food is always good and it's a comfortable space. I highly recommend it!
This was definitely a hidden gem! My wife and I enjoyed our 3 course meal and our server was superb. The restaurant was quaint and we highly recommend it.
Normally, we love Casolare, but this visit was very disappointing. The food was fine, and our server was very pleasant, but everything seemed very discombobulated - we were a party of
We enjoyed dining at Casolare. Everyone was very nice and hospitable. Nataly, our server, was excellent and all staff were very attentive without overdoing it. Everything we ordered was excellent, especially the fish and pasta. The atmosphere was just what we wanted.
Food was good, service the best I've experienced in then area in a while.
Terrific service and I will be going back especially for the mescal drink. It was amazing.
A place we'd had forgotten about and we're happy to rediscover! Great service in a lovely atmosphere where we could have a conversation without shouting. We'll be back!
We were provided a private area in the main dining room which was lovely. Food was delicious and plentiful. Excellent cappuccino as well.
Second time dining here and it continues to serve wonderful Italian food that is well spiced. The service is always responsive and attentive. I will be returning.
We loved our server, Kerry!
Food was great also
A beautiful, intimate restaurant with very reasonable prices.
Good menu and selections, with average prices. But...cheapest bottle of wine was $70. While the wine was good, a restaurant of this style should really offer less expensive wines, and there are plenty available for between $30-$40. Our server was friendly and excellent.
Great service and fabulous food!
Had a delicious & fresh brunch!
Nice menu & warm service.
Fantastic brunch. The food is great and the homemade bagels are worth the trip alone. Great service and they even have free valet parking which I’ve never seen at any other DC restaurant. Best brunch in town by far!
Casolare is an underappreciated gem. It is one of the Schlow Group restaurants in DC, but the others get more attention and kudos. Chef Patrick is young, but he is turning out outstanding dishes. We had a tasty and healthy kale salad, calamare (maybe the best I have had), and branzino which was cooked perfectly with crisp skin and moist meat.
Fantastic Italian food, fit for foodies, great service. It’s inside a Kimpton hotel, and they offer restaurant guests free valet parking (with validation). Highly recommend.
Very disappointing food - service was terrific but the food won't entice me back.
Food was delicious. Recommend if looking for great Italian food!
Definitely a hidden gem in Glover Park. Probably overlooked because it's within a hotel, but the restaurant itself is a large space with cozy decor and a pleasant atmosphere. Really great pasta! Highly recommend the butternut squash ravioli with prosciutto ragu.
Interesting and varied food, informal atmosphere, and free valet parking.
Overpriced for the food quality. Services was ok...
We sat in the bar area, which was very loud. Otherwise, the food was good.
Very good Italian food, with many creative and interesting choices. Friendly service and valet parking, too.
Definitely, a great addition to the Glover Park neighborhood!
We enjoyed a quiet, delicious meal together. The salmon and bronzino were cooked to order and accompanied by perfectly cooked broccolini. The house caesar salad was fresh and generous, enough to share. The lemon cheesecake, lemon curd, and lemon sorbet was - well - lemony and sweet, with subtle difference that made it a nice pleasure.
We were the only ones in the restaurant on a Monday afternoon at noon. I would have expected stellar service since there was nobody else to wait on. Our server was very nice, but our appetizers dropped before he even inquired about our drink order. We had to ask for salt and pepper twice before it was provided and bread 3 times before it was provided. We had to ask to order our entrees after our appetizers were eaten, which then took another 20 minutes. Great food, but service could use some tweaks. Disappointed in overall experience For what was supposed to be a fun celebratory lunch
Very good food at good prices. Very attentive service.
