Excellent meal last night! loved the chicken piccata, so flavorful, even the spinach that came with it. Lasagna, chicken parm & pizza were all enjoyed as well! Highly recommend!

The crab cake and the prosciutto are both absolutely out of this world. The service is very friendly and fast.

Casa Nostra was a close-to-last minute choice for a date night out. We were able to get a table without a problem. The atmosphere was nice, the wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was really great. I had a lobster risotto that was fantastic. Prices were not cheap but not outrageously expensive, either. A really nice dining experience.

The food was good and the happy hour was on point. Service could improve, the waiter was soft-spoken and there was some issues with plating. I had my Gnocchi served in the wrong sauce, but it was still quite enjoyable.

We've been coming here before every hockey game for the past 3 years. The food is great and the staff is friendly and efficient. The meatballs are great and pasta dishes are the best, especially the bolognese. I highly recommend this restaurant whenever your downtown.

Picked this place to eat before concert. Wait staff was pretty uninformed about menu questions. Ordered burrata and got a ball of mozzarella. Ordered a bolognese that was so undercooked was crunchy. They kept trying to remove our plates as we were still working on our meals! So many great places to eat in downtown was disappointed in our choice.

Food was delicious and fresh. Once we ordered, which was just entrees, we were served quickly. Bread basket was fresh.

I looked for an Italian restaurant close to Staples center and found this on the list. Met up with friends and started out our evening with DELICIOUS Italian cuisine. Our waiter and the other gentlemen that helped bus our table were so attentive and polite. The only person that did not give me a warm and welcoming feeling was the hostess. I think she got bugged out because I asked for a different table instead of what she had designated. It was a cold and windy night and sitting at the first table by the door was not an option for me.

Very nice spot downtown. I've been there twice and had something different each time and I was happy with each.

The food was amazing. The wine was fantastic. It was a little quiet on the patio which was great for the business meeting. Some background music would have been nice. The request for a quiet or private area was accommodated which I appreciated. Typically I don't order desert, but I did. The gelato was so yummy.

Great food and the staff is very friendly. Meatballs are great as well as all the different pastas. We go there before every hockey game.

This neighborhood gem is also a legit Italian reataurant. Having lived in Venice, Italy for a year, I recognize really well-prepared fish. Don’t eat as much pasta as I used to so can’t comment on that. The staff is friendly and always goes out of their way to take great care of us. Our recent experience was fantastic!

In LA for business and got to take my son and his girlfriend out for dinner. This was the perfect restaurant - low key but elegant, close to my hotel, and most of all the food was fantastic. Our waiter offered the specials immediately and we tried the burrata with truffle appetizer and lobster over house made pasta pomodoro. From the regular menu we ordered the calamari fritti, farfalle alla veneziana and cioppino. Everything was fresh and delicious and the service was just right. Would definitely go back!

Atmosphere is nice, great to go before a game. Park right there and walk over. We have eaten there quite a bit and the food is always good. Lately the service has been on the slower side so when you have someplace to be, allow for a little more time.

Great restaurant. Amazing experience.
I was looking for a great Italian restaurant downtown and came across this one.
They are a bit pricey but it's perfect for a date.
I had the shrimp tortellini. Which was excellent.
They make all their pasta from scratch, which is a huge plus for me. Everything is cooled to perfection.

The food was a bit pricey compared to the portion size. It is downtown L.A. so what do you expect. The plus was 7 hours free parking. We ate here before the Clippers game with ample time before and after the game. Give it a try for yourself. 😃
