Cassariano Italian Eatery Editor’s Pick
Cassariano is a different type of Italian restaurant, formal modern fine-dining with a refined Italian menu that is prized by local gourmands and people escaping familiar red-sauce meals. Owned by transplanted Italians Luca Cassani and Antonio Pariano, the menu focus is on contemporary Italian cuisine and is heavily influenced by the recipes and cuisine customs of Northern Italy. That means on any given night you can tuck into roasted duck breast with figs and risotto or grilled halibut with a sundried tomato crust, or walnut and ricotta-filled ravioli with pears and a Gorgonzola sauce that just might be the food of the gods for a vegetarian. Delicious polenta dishes too.
