My house, in the middle of the street. Wood Green Road, to be precise. And it’s here in the market town of Wednesbury, part of the massive conurbation stretching northwest from Birmingham to Walsall and Wolverhampton, that Ristorante Casa Mia has made a home. It’s here, close to the intersection with the Anglo-Saxon-sounding Woden Road East that Ristorante Casa Mia dishes out its sunkissed Mediterranean and Italian cuisine in elegant, red and velvety surrounds.
Casa Mia is a very welcoming and friendly place and very clean with very warm decorative style. The meal is outstanding. Very tasty food served on big plates. I have been quite a few times now and have always been pleased with the service and food presentation. The menu has loads of choice.i always go for the fillet steak .its delicious. All the food is written in English .i thought it would be all foreign food but its quite the oppposite .Its now my favourite place to dine.
Food was great. Service was good and the barman/waiter very pleasant. Would have rated it a 6 but it was chilly. The radiators were not on. Lots of choice on the menu.
Excellent quality of food as always, however service was poor this time. Young waitress didn't seem to know which table was which. Had to eventually ask for a bread basket as they had forgotten to bring us one. Decided not to have desert, which was a good job as no one offered us a desert menu. Not up to previous standard.
For many of the residents of Wednesbury and nearby Walsall, Ristorante Casa Mia is quite literally a home away from home. Regulars like to make their way to this Mediterranean and Italian restaurant’s Wood Green Road premises to while away the hours over basketed bottles of Chianti, shared platters of antipasti, even the odd jug or two of homemade Sangria. Ristorante Casa Mia’s modus operandi is pan-Mediterranean, and that goes for pan-fried fish dishes like the cod with garlic in a cream sauce.
Other blindingly good options on Ristorante Casa Mia’s regularly changed menu (they use a whiteboard to, as it were, chalk up their specials – a platform that makes for easy erasure and revision) include the mussels soused in white wine and tomato sauce, stuffed vine leaves, homemade fish cakes with a sweet chilli sauce, and homemade pate. But that’s just for starters. The real stars of the show, those which bring diners into this Wednesbury restaurant from as far as Walsall, are the ribeye steaks dripping with melted blue cheese and port wine sauce, the venison topped with pate and Madeira wine sauce, and the fillet steak with scallops and king prawns, steeped in Metaxa brandy and a touch of Pernod. A drunken trio that makes for good gastronomy.
