Take a bunch of people who love cooking, stir in some added passion, and add a big spoonful of enthusiasm. That’s just the start of the recipe for making another wonderful Casalinga occasion happen.

It could be the years of experience we’ve accumulated, and knowing what makes people happy. It could be the fresh ingredients we use, or the way we take authentic Italian recipes and give them a little tweak. Or is it the fact that we can accommodate groups from ten to 250 people, and that we’re fully equipped for every kind of event?

There are loads of factors that go into making Casalinga such a wonderful place to hold your next event, whether it’s for family, friends or clients. One thing we can promise you: this may be your first Casalinga event, but it won’t be your last. The great tastes, friendly service, excellent wine list and brilliant atmosphere all mean that you’ll want to come back, and soon.

Of course, we won’t tell a soul if you invent a birthday or anniversary just to give yourself an excuse to for more time at Casalinga. We’d do the same if we weren’t already here all the time. Large or small, we’ve done them all – and we can’t wait to make your event happen too!

Wine List

A day without wine is like a day without sunshine… We’re not sure who said that first, but we think there’s a good chance it was an Italian chef! Wine and food go together like love and marriage – they were just made for each other, and the right glass (or two) of wine is the perfect accompaniment to each of the dishes we serve. We’re always happy to make wine pairing recommendations to complete your dining experience, event or celebration so you can come to Casalinga with grape expectations and we’ll exceed them!
