Exceptional service with a team working extra hard due to the fire and limited access on Palisades Drive for staff. Casa Nostra is a family with high quality service and great cuisine!

One of the best authentic Italian restaurants in Los Angeles. The food is outstanding and the wait staff and kitchen is incredibly accommodating. There are always wonderful specials but the mainstays on the menu like the duck ragu or vongole are superb. You won’t go wrong with any pasta dish there and you can change the sauce (for example request a pomodoro sauce instead of the white wine sauce.). It’s a neighborhood gem but worth the drive to try it.

There was a table of two Italian-speaking males near us who spoke very loudly and, at first, one of them was vaping so I asked the manager to ask them to stop, which he did and the man stopped vaping, though he got up every 10 minutes to go outside to vape. One of the waiters repeatedly stopped to chat with the two men, loudly, clearly not about the food, as though they knew each other. Just seems that, instead of chatting loudly with them, he might have been a role model to the customers and spoke softly or even suggested they do so too.

We ate here for lunch and the food was not good. Pizza dough is not good, I added shrimp to my vongole and the shrimp was not good. Great location with a nice view but not a good restaurant.

It is always a pleasure to dine at Casa Nostra. The food is consistently good, the staff is professional and friendly, and even on a busy night they never rush us to turn the table. I have eaten here many times and I am always happy with the experience.

Service was impeccable with Alfredo leading the team. They were accommodating and extremely attentive. It was an extremely pleasant experience.
I also like the view of the hills when dining in daylight and on the patio setting. This is in contrast to viewing the inside of the restaurant or city buildings.
And I still like tablecloths.

I meant to make a reservation for the one in Westlake Village but by accident made one for the Palisades. Michael from the restaurant noticed in my notes that I may have made a mistake and called me. He was correct but graciously switched us over and did everything possible to make our evening and excellent experience. It was such a need very evening From the service to the food to the atmosphere

Food and service was excellent. There were some parents who didn't do much to ensure a quiet environment for other diners. Their kids were a bit out of control.

This is a true gem -- we who live nearby are unbelievably lucky to have it so close at hand, a neighborhood spot punching way above its weight class. The food is not just wonderful, across a wide variety of dishes; it is absolutely consistently wonderful -- something that even Michelin-caliber places struggle and often fail to achieve. It's also impossible to say enough good things about the staff, from the bussers on up to the owner. They are an elite squad; besides being superbly capable and helpful even in a rush, charming and friendly without fail -- without overstepping boundaries. What a thoroughly enjoyable, festive, relaxing experience, every single time. In Trattoria World, it just doesn't get any better.
