The restaurant itself was at a great location. There’s no traffic around the area and there’s plenty of parking. When we entered, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The host sat us right away and our table was beautiful and quiet. Our server, Fillippo, was amazing. He made our first time there one to not forget. He was very attentive. The busser, Roman, also made sure our drinks were refilled and that our plates were taken after we were finished. They made our night very special and we’ll definitely be back again!

The food was outstanding, a truly memorable meal. If you don't mind paying $75 + tip for 2 meals with no alcohol or tip included in that price, a great Italian restaurant. For me, only for special occasions though. And I would rather have a waiter I can understand, rather than one with an heavy authentic accent. But that's just me.

Food and service was incredible. Tomato soup was one of the best I've ever tried, great wines too.I had the lamb special, meat was falling off the bone. The desert was satisfactory, maybe the only thing that could have been better...was still pretty good.

It's like going to your favorite relative's house for dinner...that is - if your relative is Italian and knows how to cook pasta like a true Italian chef. My favorite hand's down is the Papardelle D'anatra. Everyone that I recommend it to loves it! I know that when we dine as a family and have gotten specials - they were always wonderful. When you walk into the restaurant - you are greeted and ushered out usually to the patio where Nikolas and other fantastic waiters are ready to attend to your table. They make sure you have a wine list if needed, that you know the specials and they make sure that you are settling in well. Throughout the evening - they check in to see how you are doing. After coming here a few times - we have gotten to know the waiters/busboys/etc. They are all wonderful people that truly care if you are enjoying your dinner. If anything isn't to your liking - they will take care of you. It is truly our favorite restaurant to take our family to and to entertain guests. It's like being home with family...but you didn't have to cook...and that's a good thing!

Wonderful evening! Service & food devine! Enjoyable evening to celebrate my husband's BD. Although, I would have preferred being seated in the room further from the bar area. It was a bit difficult to understand the descriptions of the specials. We will likely come back~Loved the food!

Never disappoints. We always receive a warm welcome upon arriving and the staff are amazing and make you feel like you are the only guests in the restaurant. The food is consistently good and the kitchen is always willing to accommodate special dietary requests. The grilled octopus appetizer is one of my favorites. A must try!

The indoor room tends to be noisy when fully occupied. Outside is beautiful. Gazebo enclosures create an exotic and romantic ambiance. There are many heaters to keep the customers toasty, and there's no corkage fee during the week. Besides this, the food is outstanding and service courteous.

We have been to Casa Nostra three times now and everytime it has been a fabulously delicious experience from the service to the food. This last time we chose one of the specials which was squid ink pasta with lobster. It was as good as any of the food that we had when traveling in Italy. I've ordered their chicken piccata twice as theirs is the best. My husband had the lamb shank and it was so tender and seasoned so beautifully. On our first visit we took a friend from Italy with us and he had so much fun speaking Italian with the owner and waiters in addition to being very satisfied with his food order. We are so delighted that they moved into our neighborhood!

We've heard about Casa Nostra for awhile and decided to celebrate a birthday there. What a wonderful experience. The service was outstanding and the food was excellent. From the Caprice and Caesar salads, to the pasta and chicken dishes we ordered the flavors and freshness of the food was outstanding. What an incredible find in an office park and we will be back!

Tucked away in an industrial park is an odd place to find such a gem. The staff was welcoming, attentive and professional. The food was simply superb. Five different entrees and five outstanding dishes. Casa Nostra is absolutely our new "go to" for Italian food.

We chose Casa Nostra for our business meeting with our Italian Olympic fencing coach knowing that the meal would be authentically Italian...and it surpassed all expectations. We will be returning with more visitors from Europe in the coming months.

Have gone here several times. It was always great. Prices have gone up in the past few months, but still not overpriced. Burrata with truffles was excellent, as was the grilled calamari. The entrees this time were disappointing. I had the Tagliata (sliced steak) with arugula. Talk about slicing the salami thin! The steak consisted of perhaps a dozen slivers...VERY thin slices. What you would find in a steak salad which is what is was for over $29. The veal medallions that I was going to have also turned out to be slivers of veal shank, so I passed. My wife's past with lobster had a nice shell, but the pieces were minced and seemed to be lacking.
Seems like the owners are have now gone into milking the cash flow stage after getting a strong following and cutting back. Probably will go back again, maybe when it warms up. Suggest you be careful with what you order and ask questions.

Third and last time for dinner. Changed my menu selections, hoping it was better than the first two dinners. After all, it's packed on the weekends and the reviews on Yelp are great. Nonetheless, my final verdict: for the price, nothing special. I've been to Italy and have eaten at Italian-American friends' homes many times and this food doesn't compare. My wife's noodles were chewy, and I could have gotten better lasagna and three times as much of it for the price at Gelson's deli. More expensive than Cafe Bizou and not nearly as good. And for just a few dollars more, one can go to Tuscany and have a true gourmet meal. Several of the staff, and I guess the owner, are authentic Italians, which is nice, but that doesn't mean they can cook! Sorry.
