One of the best outdoor settings in the area - and the service is beyond - it's always a pleasure to dine there.

Selected venue as a place to meet friends from LA, midway from us in Oxnard. Searched for an outdoor covid safe space……this restaurant was perfect. Beautiful environment, great Italian food, attentive service. Wish they had a full bar but were satisfied with an excellent wine selection. Will return

It was a cold evening, had to ask a couple of times for new heater/new propane tank as the one near us was not providing much heat.
That said, this is one of our favorite places!

Wonderful friendly service! Some of the best I’ve had ever. The waiters were very well trained, thoughtful, enjoyable and had a sense of humor. Both times of eaten here the food was delicious. One of my favorite Italian restaurants. I really like the outdoor seating with plenty of heaters. Don’t worry about it being to cold.

We love Casa Nostra. The owner personally greets guests and makes you feel welcome. They have hung some walls around the patio and made it more enclosed- that plus the heaters made it very comfortable to eat outdoors wnd we didn’t wear coats. My husband and friend had the pasta special with shrimp that they loved and my dish was excellent.

Wonderful evening but a couple of items weren’t good. 1) squash blossoms not good. All bread with very little blossoms and stuffing. 2) Shrimp tortellini and lobster ravioli was too rich and a little fishy. Lemon tart for dessert was bland.

Once again our party of 6 had an amazing meal at Casa Nostra last night. The total experience was fantastic What Giovanni has done to his restaurant by enclosing his outdoor patio area is just sensational. The food was great, as always, and the service that we were given was fabulous. If I could give Casa Nostra more than 5 stars I would do that in a heartbeat. Thanks Giovanni for yet another wonderful experience at your restaurant.

Casa Nostra has been a family favorite for years.
The noice level was so bad, we couldn't hear our waiter.
The food was not flavorful. We all felt like there must be a new chef.
We were so disappointed in so many ways.

Casa Nostra is always great but this was our first time there celebrating a special occasion. They started us with some complimentary pro secco and ended with a lovely dessert. In between the food was excellent as always. Our server Franco, was attentive and very personable as always. We will keep coming back!

We had a great time and meal. The patio heaters worked perfectly for the outdoors. The service was a bit slow but it was packed and understandable. There was a table with loud drinking people, mostly men, who were using foul language loudly. Management should have tamped down on that. Most other diners appeared to be families like ours.

Every course was excellent, from the appetizer to entree to dessert. The dessert was a complimentary surprise as we were celebrating our anniversary. Staff was friendly and efficient. We will be back for sure. Large outdoor dining area with tables far apart. Beautiful setting. Don’t let the location of this restaurant put you off. It’s in a business area, an unusual spot for a restaurant, but once inside the ambiance is wonderful and beautiful.

We really enjoyed our evening! We were greeted and seated by the manager, Randall, and he also kindly checked in on us several times throughout our dinner. The ambience on the patio was lovely, they’ve done a really nice job creating an Italian atmosphere! Our server was friendly and attentive. We ordered the prosciutto burrata to start, and then shared two pastas: the Spaghetti Carbonara and one of the specials a spinach flat noodle with braised lamb ragu. The carbonara was a little too creamy for my taste but I loved the flavor and crispy-ness of the pancetta. The ragu was perfection and the pasta perfectly al dente. For dessert we enjoyed the melt-in-your-mouth amaretto cake and a few spoonfuls of chocolate gelato. We look forward to returning and continuing to explore the menu. Grazie tutti!

Casa Nostra has made their outdoor dining area very comfortable during covid and have added a large tent to the outdoor dining area. The food was excellent as always. Service was not as good as usual. They were very busy and totally forgot our salad, finally bringing our entrees after a little over an hour. They did apologize and gave us a complementary dessert, which was a nice gesture. As it worked out, we enjoyed the leisurely pace and had lots of time to visit with our friends.

They rush you! I was t even done snd they took my plate and bread and I told them not yet. I had food on my plate still- not much, but had food. Then minutes later, the same guy came again to take my plate and I spoke up - I just told you I’m not done. They are in a rush to get you out. We weren’t there too long btw. We had a marathon and had to go sleepy early, but they really move fast
Also, they didn’t mention their pesto sauce had cream. Not a fan of cream
