 (Washington DC)·Dined 11 hours ago

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. 😃

The food was excellent! It was a lunch party of 8 and everybody was happy with their orders (mostly pasta dishes with one margherita pizza). The service was also very good. Where we sat though was very warm. We were seated under a skylight and even though the air was supposedly on at the area, it was still warm. The food is also a bit on the pricier side. All in all, would be back to dine here again!

The service is weird here. I always feel awkward like I'm bothering the waitstaff just by showing up. The food is reasonably priced and I'd say priced appropriately. Some solid pasta dishes on the menu make this place a great casual place to dine. I just wish the staff woke up a bit and seemed more welcoming.

We had a most pleasant dining experience at Casa Nostra. The weather called for outdoor dining, which they beautifully provide along with superior service, great food, and a noise level that allowed for pleasant conversation rather than the raucous atmosphere found in so many other "hip" places. Besides all that, they validate for up to four hours of free parking...in DTLA near LA LIVE! no less. I don't frequent that area too much, but could imagine having a nice dinner then checking out the Grammy Museum, attending a movie theatre, or taking a nice stroll through this exciting part of town.
We've been here on about five other occasions and I know we'll be back. All that and anche parlano italiano!

very disappointing ambiance and crowd. Was expecting a fun, upscale crowd downtown and it was poorly dressed older people and people with babies. Zero ambiance and our waitress was terrible with no personality or energy. Completely inappropriate for this restaurant - she Could have worked at a coffee shop. Food was very good - but would not go back due to ambiance and waiter service.

 (Hawaii)·Dined on June 20, 2017

It was extremely hot in the section we were seated in - we had a group of 8 and were put by the bathrooms with a big heavy curtain surrounding us. It blocked the AC and it was not comfortable.

The food was okay - nothing to write home about. One of the orders was incorrect and had to be remade - my coworker didn't get to eat until we were all finished & my boss couldn't eat her pizza as the meat had a distinct odor that was unappetizing.

Overall, I'd call it a work dinner "fail" and I wouldn't return. I'd recommend Bottega Louie instead and we ended up there after to get dessert.

The main restaurant looked nice and was a lot cooler temp-wise, perhaps it'd be great for a date or smaller party.
