The Food is always delicious and excellent service. A very cosy and romantic atmosphere. A very enjoyable experience. Started going there in the 90's and it's still as good

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival with the staff being attentive & professional. We both chose the same starter & two different pasta dishes for the main course - the food was well presented & very tasty. Good selection of wines, beers & spirits We'll definitely return in the near future.

Casa Italia is amazing. It was a Monday night and (long story) we had to be in Birmingham. We expected a quiet dinner on our own. This place is popular for good reason and we were not alone. There was a great atmosphere. A couple of parties and other couples all enjoying fantastic food and great service. Husband had calamari then pasta all good and tasty he said. I had minestrone (lovely) then probably the best pizza I have ever eaten. Crisp base, loads of prosciutto , delicious cheese. We had a bottle of the wine of the month. Very good. Reasonable prices too. We ate a la carte but looking on the website there are all sorts of special offers. Service was excellent. Friendly and pleasant and efficient. Cannot praise our evening highly enough. Just a shame we don't live near there!

Visited Casa Italia yesterday for my birthday meal. Great food, great atmosphere, great service! Staff was friendly and very attentive. Food was amazing and we didn't have to wait long (it was 7 of us). I got one free drink on the house for my birthday and when the waiter brought desserts out they've put a candle in mine, even though nobody asked (which was really nice!). Would definitely recommend this place

My wife and I had two wonderful meals at Casa Italia over the Easter weekend. The accompanying sauces were particularly tasty and the deserts were exceptional and the waitress service was particularly attentive to detail and very friendly. I would strongly recommend this to be a wonderful restaurant to anyone visiting Birmingham, looking for a good meal very reasonably priced.

We were a little apprehensive when we saw the location and frontage of the restaurant as it looked a little dated. We selected the white wine of the month which was delicious, the service was very good, they were very attentive, warm hosts and the food was excellent. Home made, authentic from fresh ingredients. We left a full tip, would definately go again and would thoroughly recommend :)

Lovely food lovely atmosphere and decent prices. Wine list extensive and serve liqueur coffees and soft drinks as well as tea and coffee. Food was really good. O had bruschetta to start which was beautiful and then risotto rottara. The down side was there were mushrooms 8n my risotto which wasn't advertised on the menu but I picked them out. Definitely worth a visit.

Dined yesterday as part of a party of 13. Very cosy seated at the back of the downstairs area but plenty of room. Took a while for the waitress to come and take our food orders but to be fair they were full with a large party in the upstairs room as well. Food was tasty and well cooked. I had the tagliatelle carbonara with bacon and the sauce was lovely. Would definitely visit again.

We had a wonderful evening with very good food served well all very hot and on hot plates which ticks all of my boxes. The staff could not have made us feel any more welcome than they did. The free evening parking near by is also a bonus. We will certainly be returning.

I have no complaints regarding the food but it was my husbands birthday & I dropped a cake round before , the young lady who greeted us was lovely & said we have got the round table downstairs which pleased us all. When we arrived she said she had made a mistake & we had to go upstairs. To be truthful upstairs needs a total refurb , very unwelcoming , to top it all our table was wobbly which was very annoying. . We were really looking forward to it , but it just lacked abit of Italian style .

Absolutely excellent. Always delivers - never disappointed. We go about 12 times a year and each time vow not to have the steaks AGAIN - and each time break that promise. Don't know how they do them but the steak gorgonzola is to die for.

A really lovely little gem of a place, hidden away. The atmosphere was friendly and warm, as was the service. We thoroughly enjoyed our food from the wide and traditional menu, which was tasty and delicious. Well priced and good value too.

This is a really excellent restaurant in an unlikely location. Family owned it is a real pleasure compared to the big chain groups with an extensive menu offering well prepared food and warm welcoming service.

Overall an enjoyable experience. I had the Calzone for a main and this very nice. My partner also complimented the carbonara she had. Service was good, polite and quick and we will be returning to take advantage of the midweek specials soon. This place is worth a try.

Excellent service as usual. Food was delicious but because it was a Monday evening and there were not many other diners the atmosphere was a subdued, but did not detract from a very nice evening.

The service was great and the food was really nice. I have lived in and around Bearwood for years but did not realise this restaurant was here. You could tell how popular it was as it was busy in a week night.

Food was poor. Calamari was obviously from a frozen packet - thick batter, tasteless and rubbery. Garlic bread wasn't home made, it appeared to be one of those shop bought pizza bases. Main of prawn risotto was bland and watery, rice didn't appear to be proper risotto rice and prawns were very chewy. I've had a stomach upset during the night, possibly the prawns? Overall, dissatisfied with the quality of food and wondering if the restaurant actually has a trained chef.
