    Excellent service, a consistent neighbourhood restaurant with great service and food. Good for couples, group or singles as a welcoming atmosphere.

    The food was okay. Entrees were delicious. Staff confused us with the menu as on booking they said we had to go with the set menu but then put alacarte menus on our table. Very noisy!

    Amazing vibe and location, great service staff even though one was new (we didnt mind at all), food was delicious although the pasta was a little overdone, but nonetheless great and recommended!

    I have been here a few times before and the food is still amazing. We booked the 50% off food deal and it was so worth it.

    How Casoni incorporates Asian into its dishes sounded really exciting and definitely lived up to expectations in my latest meal. Will be back for sure (2nd time and counting)

    We had a good time at Casoni - the food was tasty and well presented and the service was great. It had a quite good atmosphere as well. Definitely worth checking out for a hot date!

    I booked the 50% off special but they didn’t apply it to our meal. Otherwise I do love the food here.

    Small place. Quite loud with little space between some tables. Interesting mix of Asian flavours of traditional Italian dishes. Some worked and some didn’t. Service was friendly but a bit awkward.
