Terrible experience at this restaurant Zios by Gian Carlo, my family very visited this place only because of the reviews, clearly his friends and family are boosting reviews to help his new establishment. The food was warm on the outside, cold on the inside, you could hear the microwave going in the kitchen, owner showed up, cut off tshirt, dirty track pants, all my guests were not feeling well afterwards, I was ok, I skipped dinner, never again.

If you want excellent, home made Italian food then this a must stop. Great sandwiches,
the best lasagna. Bought a tray for the family to take to the cottage. I make great decisions

Casano's recently completed their relocation from Bayview Drive to new digs at 49 Anne Street South. The new location is decidedly a bare bones, industrial-type setting with painted cement block walls, exposed pipes, a single his and hers washroom, etc. Basic unadorned tables & chairs to fit the Spartan environment. You place your order at the counter when you enter and then the meals are delivered to your table on a tray.

The menu is basically unchanged.... limited and very basic middle road... this is nor the place for finer, specialized Italian cuisines.

Lunch Menu, served till 3:00 pm, consists of five pasta with sauce choices (plain, meatballs, sausage, veal cutlet, chicken), lasagna and a daily special. (The daily lunch special on my recent visit was Stuffed Pepper. Simple but tasty.) Prices range from $7.00 to $10.00. Add Mushrooms & Pepper for $1.50

Hot Sandwiches choices: Meatballs on a Bun, Sausages on a Bun, Veal Cutlet on a Bun, Veggie & Mozzarella Cheese on a Bun, Chicken Breast on a Bun. (All sandwiches come with Mushrooms, Peppers, Sauce & Parmigiana Cheese.) $7.00

A La Carte Menu served from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm (close at 6:00 pm): Seven $10 entrees (Take home take $2 off)... Manicotti with Marinara Sauce: Tortellini with Ham, Mushrooms & Alfredo Sauce; Fettucini Alfredo; Cheese Ravioli with Marinara Sauce: Gnocchi with Alfredo or Bolognese Sauce; Spaghetti & Meatballs with Bolognese Sauce; Penne Primavera; Veal Parmigiana with Pasta and Marianara Sauce; Chicken Parmigiana with Pasta and Marinara Sauce.

And last but not least, a couple of Salads for take out.

Everything tastes pretty good. Portions are satisfactory. The prices are certainly reasonable.

Hours are Monday – Friday 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.

(Catering hours also include Saturday... all catering call the day before).

No WiFi. Not LLBO licensed.

Bottom line: Definitely NOT a “destination” or “special occasions” restaurant. Good for dropping in for an inexpensive basic hurry-up week-day meal when not in the mood for cooking... eat-in or take-home.
