I went there last night but the woman in the kitchen was laughably rude and arrogant. I have never posted a restaurant review before, but I just could not resist this one.
As good as it gets

Casellula's pedigree is evident. I've been numerous times with dates, family, and friends; and each time it's been a winner. The casual atmosphere betrays an astonishing cheese selection and well thought out variety of wines and beers. Accompaniments paired with each cheese are surprising and fun, so order athirst! Other foodstuffs are fine -- decent salads, above-average morsels of meat. But you're in a cheese place, so why not go for the savory grilled cheese sandwich? As others said, the staff is friendly and very well-versed in their wares. Just be prepared for a wait and a dull roar now that the word is out.

i have been to casellula several times and the food and service have always been exceptional. some bottles seem to be somewhat overpriced, but the list is superb. the mac & cheese is a must!
Wonderful food, patient staff

So you try (try) to avoid gluten, but you like wine bars. Where should you go? Casellula! Yes, the list of wines is extensive/varied, the meats are delightfully random, and they serve a dizzying number of different cheeses. . . And, yes, all of them are good. I love Casellula because, not only did our waiter allow us to eat our own (lame, gluten-free) bread, but he toasted it for us AND brought us rice balls to show that he felt our pain. It is nearly impossible to get a table, but, if you should be so lucky, you will not regret having gone.
A paradise for cheese lovers

If you grill cheese, forget about here... but if you actually cheese is a pleasure, you just found heaven. A large variety of cheeses, they will set four in a plate for you as the French do, listen to their suggestions, give them a hint of what you like... or just ask to pair it with the wine. The meat appetizers are good too. Only the wine list could be significantly improved.
