THE BEST ANYWHERE!! THOSE SPINACH PIES? CAN'T GET ENOUGH! PIZZA? IN BOSTON, REGINA'S AND SANTARPIO'S ARE THE KING. THEY DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO CASERTA'S. BELIEVE ME, IT'S WORTH...

Worst

No toppings? This is not real pizza, its more like bread. Good crust, but all the bread and little pizza flavor makes for uninspiring pizza. Also some of the front people are rude...

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/20/2012

Over rated pizza for sure. I don't know what happened to their pizza but it sure isn't like the old days. Boring atmosphere, rude counter help and less than average pizza. Won't go back, that's for sure. more

Not like it used to be... found a better pizza !! 5/16/2008

I was the biggest Caserta fan back in the day... I'd travel 30 miles for a Caserta Pizza and in RI that's BIG !!! But just like anything else with new owners ,and time ,comes change. Caserta was the king for many years ... they went up against a pizza at the Bryant College Annual Pizza Challenge this year ( can you tell I'm a Pizza Lover) and the winner this year was a place I've never heard of... Pepino's Pizzeria in Lincoln... OMG !!!! The NEW REIGNING KING of PIZZA... from the northend of Boston !!!! Best kept secret in RI !!! Pros: Easy to find... been there for years Cons: Just not like it used to be !!! more

Disgusting, salty pizza sauce 2/23/2008

Their pizza is disgusting. The sauce is wicked salty, the toppings are few in variety and not very good. Go to Bob & Timmy's - it's much better. more

Better than Chain Pizza.... 8/19/2007

Better than chain pizza. Decently priced. They don't usually skimp on the toppings..usually when I ask for ""extra extra pepperoni and olives"" and make it a point again to say I want it covered, I usually get it that way and it's still under $10. They lack the consistency though, I guess depending on who makes it because sometimes there's sauce overload and it's too gloppy with a bunch of those little tomato things. I like how the crust isn't too thick and not too thin but it's bland and tasteless. Its weird, like they just sprayed some olive oil on it and fried the bottom. And twice I have found a piece of hair in it. I noticed the first piece at home and the second time I went back in and took a refund on it (didn't want an irritated cook spitting in it..) So I now make sure to inspect the pizza before leaving..... Pros: Price. Crust not too thin and not too thick, usually lots of toppings. Cons: Tasteless, white crust that they spray oil on and fry the bottom, had hair in pizza. Made differently each time. more

WITHOUT QUESTION!! 5/13/2007

THE BEST ANYWHERE!! THOSE SPINACH PIES? CAN'T GET ENOUGH! PIZZA? IN BOSTON, REGINA'S AND SANTARPIO'S ARE THE KING. THEY DON'T EVEN COME CLOSE TO CASERTA'S. BELIEVE ME, IT'S WORTH THE TRIP!!!!! more

RI's Federal Hill Pizza Place. Sit down, shut up and eat your pizza! 9/18/2006

My wife and I just enjoyed a delicious large pepperoni, olive and cheese pizza for lunch. She had a pizza craving since before our cruise last week that was left unsatisfied until today. We had incredible food on the cruise ship including pizza but I kid you not, Casserta's pizza satisfies like no other. Just the right balance of crispy crust, olive oil, sause and toppings so that you can perch your slice on your fingertips. We ordered a large so we could have some for lunch tomorrow but could not stop eating just one more slice 'till there were only five squares left. Yes it is a square pizza. RI's best! Pros: Classic Italian RI pizza place. Cons: Parking is tight. more

Best Around 5/9/2006

The best pizza. This is real Italian style. I've had others and love it more

Our Pizza. Our way. 3/14/2006

You would have to be an idiot to order green peppers on a Casserta pizza. That's like ordering ketchup for your stake serloin. Don't get me wrong peppers are good on Chicago style pizzas and the like but this is not Chicago or New York. This is Providence, Rhode Island. And this is our pizza (and our atmosphere for that matter)! Pros: Genuine Atmosphere, Location, Simplicity more

It's still there! 2/5/2006

I worked at Uncas Mfg. from 1967 to 1972. A work friend introduced me to Casserta's. Thirty nine years later.... I still loved their pizza. The menu is almost the same now as it was then. I don't mind the parking, waiting for a table, the limited menu, or picking up my own order. I am a loyal customer, and will be until I die. Casserta's..... don't change a thing! Pros: value priced Cons: parking is limited more

This is the Best in Rhode Island? 1/11/2006

I moved here from NYC and thing first thing I ask is ""where can I get a good pizza?"" Lots of Italians here, so I figure I can't lose right? Wrong! Man, Rhode Islanders do not know good pizza. Glaring example is Caserta's. I've had frozen supermarket pizza that was better. For what Caserta's charges for a pie, you could send a kid to college. Another clunker is that they act like they're doing you a favor by serving you one of their atrociously over priced pizzas. Tasteless crust, like Wonder bread. Sauce like ketchup, horrible!! If they opened up a joint like this in NYC or Brooklyn, they wouldn't last a week. They'd find the owners in a dumpster along with their pizzas! Anyone coming in from out of town...stay away! The locals just don't have a clue, they haven't tasted what other cities have to offer. Pros: Funny statue outside Cons: food, service, price more

Wasn't impressed 9/14/2005

My husband and I are from the area and we weren't impressed at all with their pizza. We have had better elsewhere. Everyone has a right to their own opinion but we prefer not eating there again. Nothing to brag about and we don't understand why they have such a high rating to begin with. more

Great Pizza 7/14/2005

I have been going to Casserta's for over 20 yrs. Now that I live in TN that is the 1st place we go to when we get to RI. I love this place. It has the best pizza that I have ever tasted! It reminds me of being young. I recommend it to everyone. Pros: Great food, Inexpensive more

This is the most over rated pizza ... 1/20/2005

This is more like the italian version of french toast, I would say that this may pass as a breakfast snack, but it is not traditional pizza. I have had terrific pizza, awesome pizza and prize winning pizza. This is not the place I have had it! Pros: Hot, Big, Good Value Cons: , no taste, over rated big time. more

Mythically Bad Pizza 8/2/2004

Ok I know pizza and I know value however this pizza joint in the middle of mafia land is just plain boring...what the heck are you people thinking. The sauce is over cooked and bland, the crust is hardly cooked and worst of all your locals run around saying how wonderful this place is - I think they use the words ""wicked good"" to describe the pizza...so sad - you need a brick oven to cook pizza and for goodness sake add some spice to the dishes. Wake up - go to Italy or Chicago and get back to making real Italian fare. more

Not for Transplants 2/5/2004

I think this pizza has a far greater appeal if you grew up eating it. I am from New Haven CT, and I don't care for this particular type of pizza at all. It is very heavy, and the sauce is very acidic. Although it looks and smells great, I don't care for the taste or aftertaste at all. more

good pizza, bad counter help 2/5/2004

the waitstaff at casserta pizza are a bunch of rude people. just because they have good pizza doesn't give the girls that work the counter to be rude to customers Pros: pizza, proximity to my house Cons: , rude counter help more

yucky, clumpy, icky 8/7/2003

I think this place had a good rep ""back in the day"" and now people go on what they hear and like in many things in life, they follow others. My parents brought this stuff home when I was little and I hated it. Now I'm in my mid-twenties and I still hate it. Bad crust, terrible, terrible sauce, rude young women with claws for nails working at the counter. Terrible dining atmosphere. That's my opinion, but if you check out what other's are saying, it seems to be the consensus. Ick! I'd rather go to Felini's for NY style pizza. Or Zaccagnini's in Cranston for pizza strips. Those are yummy! Pros: historic good rep, heard spinach is good Cons: doesn't meet rep, i hate cooked spinach, pizza is terrible more

BURNT PIZZA 8/2/2003

I have been here several times before and the pizza is so-so. BUt this time, the crust was burnt and they wouldn't redo it. They wouldn't give me the manager name. My 2 daughters and I just left and will not go back. Another mistake was the terrible parking, if I wanted to pay this much for pizza with no parking, I'd go to Pizza Hut Pros: location Cons: bad parking, bad service, price more

Don't waste your time 8/2/2003

Parking here sucks. This crust is like eating a cardboard box and they would even give us a knife or fork. I will never go here again! Pros: Atmosphere Cons: PARKING, sucky crust, SERVICE more

Best Anywhere 3/7/2003

Caserta is a RI institution and has been around since before I was born in '59. It's the best Pizza consistently, that I have ever had. Anywhere. There specialty wimpy skippy spinach pie with cheese and pepperoni is also the absolute best. more
