You can find Cassio Ristorante & Pizzeria just minutes from Tooting Bec underground, on the corner of Tooting Bec Road and Wheatlands. It’s a busy corner in this London neighbourhood, a community fixture serving fantastic Italian cuisine that quietly demonstrates a commitment to real quality. The kitchen works with local suppliers to source fresh produce every day, much of which is organic and all of which is GMO-free. The kind proprietors at Cassio also cater to the needs of guests with specific dietary requirements. But the highlight has to be their menus, changed weekly, always offering something new to veteran and newbie diners alike.
For many Tooting Bec residents, Cassio is the go-to spot for fantastic, affordable – and authentic – Italian pizza, prepared the Neapolitan way. Many of this number also have Cassio on speed-dial when they’re looking for a proper sit-down dinner in front of a selection of authentic Italian dishes. This southwest London Italian restaurant’s ethic when it comes to sourcing their ingredients reflects the locally-produced focus that prevails across Italy. What it means is a fantastically fresh tasting selection of antipasti, pasta and risotto, meat, fish, and vegetarian mains, and drool-worthy desserts, all of which cleave close to tradition in the manner of their preparation and, in the end, their colour, taste, and healthiness.
Book at table at Cassio’s Tooting Bec Road premises, easy to spot on the corner with Wheatlands Road, and prepare to be treated to exceptional service and a lavish list of Italian classics. Breaded and deep-fried mozzarella with a simple spicy tomato and basil sauce is a winner to begin, while the pungent vegetarian risotto with courgettes, gorgonzola and mascarpone cheeses is a perfect primo piatto. From the selection of main meat and fish dishes, the filetto di orata al Pernod is a curious invention, using an anise-flavoured sauce and fennel over sea bream with cherry tomatoes. A simple polla al Valdostana (chicken breast topped with cooked ham, mozzarella and a tomato sauce) or beef medallions with gorgonzola cheese and green peppercorns are rustic options for those looking for a hearty Italian meat dish. Very popular among locals to London’s Tooting Bec, be sure to book with Cassio in advance to avoid disappointment.
Always a good meal with a varied menu and good service. Easy to book a meal there and not got loud intrusive music to disturb conversation.
Food here never fails to be excellent. All food seams to come in good, hearty portions. Buzzing atmosphere, and great service too. This is my favourite Italian restaurant in London.
Great service! Bustling atmosphere on a Friday night. Entrees were reasonably priced. Will definitely come back again. Neighborhood gem right near Tooting Bec tube station.
Excellent range of meals with old favourites and specials to choose from. The service is excellent and the staff are always very pleasant without being pushy.
We always enjoy Cassio, the food is consistently great and the service excellent. This visit was no exception, and it's also a great place for a family meal.

Went on Valentine's night really busy. Service was brilliant and the food was excellent. The menu was especially for Valentine's night and was extensive loads to choose from. I have been coming here for a long time and always come away thinking I must return soon 10/10.
I really enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. The service we received was at a very high standard and I found the staff to be very accomodating. The food was top quality and overall my experience was excellent. I will definitely be going back!
Good Italian food here, we enjoyed both primi (deep fried mozzarella) and main (chicken breast). Tast house wines which is served generous (good filled glass). Service is quick and friendy. Prices are reasonable (although 3,50 for a bottle of flat water.....hm..). Located near to Tooting Bec station.
What a lovely place this is. Really good honest italian food, in a warm and inviting environment coupled with great service- happy, helpful waiters who are obviously proud of what they do. It's a gem!
