As much as I would like to support a hometown chain, I've continued to be disappointed with Casa even after eating at the different locations at least 8 times over the last few years. The dishes that I have ordered have been mediocre at best. And each time I go, I've been hoping for a good dish. The dishes haven't been really bad. They are just not really good. I've lived in California, NY and DC and I know good food when I have it. I guess for Fort Wayne, it??s a step up from Fazolis.

But the thing that drove me to post this review is the horrible service I received from the manager at the Stellhorn location on one evening in February 2012. On that evening, my friend and I chose Casa's for dinner.

When we were ordering, the waitress, who was nice, explained that they were all out of bread. She was appropriately apologetic and we appreciated that. I asked her if they had absolutely no bread and she explained that I could order breadsticks, but I would have to buy those.

Hmmmm...... I'm thinking to myself, your restaurant is so cheap, that they can't substitute the breadsticks for the complimentary bread that they normally serve and that their customers expect??????

I reluctantly ordered the breadsticks because I like to always have bread with my Italian food. The waitress served the 2 breadsticks and I found that they are charging $2.99 for just the two breadsticks. After thinking about it for a few minutes, I concluded that this must be a poor decision by an inexperienced waitress and that a manager would surely take care of it if I brought it to her attention.

So I asked to speak to a manager. A lady with short hair came to the table. She didn't smile, she made no inquiry as to if everything is okay. She just came to the table and stared. I asked the manager if they could substitute the breadsticks for the bread that they were out of. She said, no we don't do that. She said that was a decision by the owner. She made no apology; she didn't offer to do anything to compensate for the missing bread. She just stared like she could care less. I wouldn't expect that from a new waitress, let alone a manager!!! I was pretty stunned. Rarely, have I had such bad customer service and never from a manager. Managers are normally trained to try to make every customer satisfied if possible. She made absolutely no effort. On the contrary, she was a bit snippy.

At that point, I quickly concluded that it would be useless to try to point out what a poor customer service position she was taking. I just told her that I would never return to Casa's if that's the way they treat their customers.

So not only, will I never return to Casa's. I will tell everyone I know, at every opportunity, about my experience there. And I will encourage them to take their business to a restaurant that appreciates their customers and understands good customer service. Clearly, Casa's doesn't get it.

This has always been one of my favorite restaurants, which I like to go to often with my parents. I really like their meat ravioli and lasagna, and I LOVE their six layer chocolate cake! It isn't a trip to Casa without it, and if I'm full, it's definitely worth taking a slice home with me to eat later. It's a nice place to go to hang out with people, and I can't think of anything bad about them! Also, the complimentary bread there is quite good too!

My husband received some Casa Grill gift certificates from his boss for a holiday gift. We decided to take the kids and go there, not really knowing what to expect.

They are a "come as you are" Italian Restaurant. Not too fancy, but a nice sit down dinner. The tables are a bit close and the noise is a little on the loud side, but the food was great.

They had good Kid Friendly meals and everything was wonderful !! We will be going back again soon.
