The atmosphere is very quaint and close to some of the restaurants we visited in Italy (and "little Italy" in NYC) The service was great too. We didn't really have to wait to have our drinks refilled, yet the waitress wasn't hovering. We went around 8PM, so it wasn't crowded, but you could tell everyone was having a great time. The food....DELICIOUS!!!!!! The bread was warm and fresh. We had the fried ravioli for our appetizer. It was extremely tasteful and the sauce was as if it was just made! The salad was wonderfully flavored; although my hubby doesn't care for the oil/vinegar type, but I enjoyed it very much. It was not the normal iceburg lettuce either. Oh and they had shavings of cheese in it...yummy! I had the Eggplant Rollitini Al Forno. All I can say is OH MY GOSH! EXCELLENT! The size portion was enough to feed two (ooooh lunch tomorrow). I also had a side order of penne pasta. I am VERY fussy about the tenderness of my pasta and have had to send my dinner back at many restaurants...NOT THIS ONE! I explained how I wanted it to the waitress (like I normally do) and it was EXACTLY like I wanted it! BRAVO! My hubby had the Homemade Gnocchi with sausage & pesto sauce. It was VERY good! He really enjoyed his meal too. It was a decent size portion and he also took some home. We had NO room for dessert!! We will definitely will be returning for another meal. You can NOT go wrong...go...enjoy....MANGIA…MANGIA!!
I grew up eating at Cassano's I remember it even when I was really little. This was always my farvorite Pizza shop until about 5 years ago. I still love that thin crust deluxe very much and would go as far to say it is the best pie I have ever had, the toppings are perfect, the sauce is awesome! It just flat out taste great! (I grew up in New Carlisle and that to me is the best shop) This shop on brandt sold me a pie with the crust so hard that is broke apart like a cracker. That and not liking the handtossed style they have because it is just too thick has me going there less and less. Like I said the thin crust is still unchanged and awesome. There subs are pretty good and I actually like the steak sub a lot. The prices have gone through the roof and even a good coupon for Cassono's still makes it more costly than other really good shops. Overall it is a great place to sit down and have a great meal (minus the thick crusts pizza's). If you don't mind spending a little bit more money it really is worth the stop. One of the better local pizza chains.
We first ate at Dewey's near Montgomery Town Centre mall outside of Cincinnati and loved it. At the time we were living in Colorado and could visit California Pizza Kitchen. We have since moved to Dayton and found a Dewey's here. It's just as good as the first one we tried. The salads are beyond outstanding (and I'm very picky about my salads and dressings - I make all my own dressings homemade), the beer selection is varied and good, and the pizza and calzones are some of the best we've had anywhere in the country. They make the standards (cheese, pepperoni, hawaiian) and lots of unusual combos too, which we love. You can also build your own to get it exactly the way you want it. If you love CiCi's or Pizza Hut this isn't your place. If you love high quality food, good and friendly service, and a slightly upscale environment you are going to really enjoy Dewey's.
