The patio was great and the food was good. It felt fresh and not slapped together. It's a different experience then just going to a chain. That said it's a little slower when busy. The wait staff was working hard but falling behind. If it's lunch you may need a bit more time.
Another visit and carbonara was great again. Pizza has a lot of room for improvement. We wanted to try it again but it was again a bad choice. The dough is dry and hard. The service was really slow. We waited 20 mins to get a drink although a lady who seems to run the place asked us as soon as we sat down but it was not until a server came to ask that we got our drinks. So probably 10 mins between the first interaction and 20 mins more after the second one. The same for the food and the bill. Forever to get our bill and 20 minutes more waiting to pay. They were really busy but I guess bringing the bill and the machine could have been an option. Something important, please chop the sundried tomatoes for your pizza. You are not supposed to eat a whole sundried tomato like that. It is salty and it is supposed to add flavour not take over the entire flavour of the pizza. First visit.The pasta was incredibly good. We ordered carbonara and it was very tasty. The pizza was not great. I would not order it again but I would definetely come back for that pasta. The white sangria was delicious but overpriced for sure. Service was ok. They were extremely busy!
Warm & friendly hospitality and inviting atmosphere where reservations are strongly recommended to ensure you get a spot inside or on the patio in quaint Belmont Village. Delicious, authentic Italian cuisine that will make Casa your favourite place to eat, drink, and be merry! 10/10 every time.
The ambiance inside the restaurant is nice. The arancini we ordered as an appetizer was delicious, with the right amount of sauce and cheese to go with it. We ordered a vegetarian baked penne and the seafood linguine for dinner. The pasta dishes did not disappoint. This was one of the best seafood linguine that I've ever had. The sauce was flavourful and the seafood was perfectly cooked. The service was good as well. We will definitely go back here.
Wife and I decided to come here mid week last week. The service was amazing, the environment was perfect and the food was delicious.
I brought my grandparents here and I had high hopes for the food and service, and I wasn't disappointed. They ordered the 4 item pizza, and my mom and I shared the veggiterian cappelini. When we told the waitress that we will be sharing, they separated our dish before bringing it out and made sure both had the same type of veggies. Both the pasta and pizza tasted great. Even my grandpa, who's very picky, loved the food. We also ordered two desserts at the end. They both were delicious and not overly sweet. The Tartufo's chocolate shell had small pieces of hazelnut in it, which added to the flavour. We also ordered one 6oz red wine, and one mixed drink. The service was good and our waitress was polite and helpful. We sat inside right by the window, which meant great lighting and made for a cozy yet lovely experience. Our total came to ~$67 before tip. I'd definitely recommend this place for anyone who's looking for a good Italian restaurant! Update: the food and service was as great as my visit 4yrs ago. This time I ordered the special veal ravioli, and it was lip-smacking delicious!
Great dine in experience: an excellent date night place, with amazing high quality food. Highly recommend!
Today was my first experience at Casa rugantino. We had the dinner menu as take out my partner ordered lasagna I ordered a baked penne. However this is the only time I've ever left a review like this I had to give one star because they gave me no option other than that you would have got zero Stars today the food was awful there was no flavor whatsoever not even flavor of salt or pepper the bun was even stale there was no meat in the lasagna except for one chunk that diameter of a Toonie no vegetables at all I am so so utterly disappointed with a $50 meal I cannot believe is that anything could be that bad it was however I guess the cheesecake we ordered is going to be good because it wasn't from your restaurant. You can also see by the picture of the penny the baked penne pasta how much I ate of it one bite and I was didn't want to do that
One of the best reason to visit Kitchener is to experience Casa Rugantino. We offer a great time for people everywhere and our delicious chicken is the reason people keep coming back for more. If you'd like to ask us some questions or make a reservation call us at (519) 744-9081.
