First time at this hidden gem! The restaurant is located In a business complex, but was easy to find, and the courtyard dining setting was very lovely. Very pleasant and attentive wait staff. Our food was excellent. Lovely flaky and tender sea bass, and chicken piccata. I highly recommend the polenta mushroom appetizer to start. One of the most delicious creamy polenta cakes I’ve ever tasted. Do yourself a favor and give this restaurant a try if you’ve never been. I’m so glad we did!

The five of us went out to celebrate two birthdays. It was our first time eating out since COVID. We had never been to Casa Nostra before but had heard good things. It was amazing!!!

The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. They were super busy but our waiter was so attentive it felt like we were the only people in the restaurant.

Everything was perfect. We could not have asked for a better celebration!!

The location is unusual, but once inside, the ambiance is great. But we came to have a nice dinner to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. They delivered an outstanding meal, we both enjoyed ourselves and our food. The Maitre Di heard me when I whispered it was my girlfriend's birthday, and please bring her a special dessert with a candle on it after our meal. He heard me, he remembered, and she appreciated the gesture. I will go back again the next time I'm in the mood for some delicious Italian food.

This was our first time visiting, when you’re out front it’s hard to tell it’s a restaurant because all the commercial buildings and nestled in a small nook is this restaurant. Great find and the owner great guy and very interactive with customers.

This is a hidden gem. The menu is not a typical Italian menu, the preparations are outstanding. One issue is where to sit. If you sit inside it tends to be quieter but you're inside and near the bar. If you sit on the patio, it is wonderful, but can get noisy as people try to talk over the live music. The music is soft in a sense that it is a guitar, clarinet/flute, but as people talk louder the music gets louder as well and it can be difficult to hold a conversation across a table. But the ambiance of sitting out on the patio can be worth it. The waiters are Italian and attentive without being on top of you. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are no corkage fee nights, so it does get busy those nights. With that in mind make sure to have a reservations since this isn't a large place. The wine menu itself is well balanced and offers good wines at realistic pricing. The restaurant is in the middle of an industrial strip area, so it isn't the easiest to find, but well worth the effort. Note, the "no corkage" fee applies to this restaurant, not the others.

This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food is very good but the wait staff is amazingly disorganized. Our waiter never did wait on us. Another very nice man took our drink orders a d the when our waiter never came back we flagged the nice man down who also took our food order. The assigned waiter did drop off the check and unfortunately would have received the tip for never actually waiting on us. Not sure we would go back.

Before Covid, we always, always, always enjoyed dining at Casa Nostra. During Covid, when restaurants were finally allowed to offer outdoor seating, Casa Nostra was a favorite "go-to" escape. The outdoor patio is lovely, and throughout 2020, management really enhanced its original comfort and beauty. The very gracious owner and his team are exceptional, they create and offer a safe environment and they never miss a beat on service. The food, of course, always very, very good. The menu has a lot to offer. Some of our favorites are the Fried Calamari, Caesar Salad, Mussels, Lasagna, Pork Osso Bucco. Chef prepares special squid ink with seafood pastas, definitely a treat. The Gorgonzola Spinach Gnocchi is rich and delicious, perhaps best as a shared pasta course for the table. Wine list has a nice variety, all very reasonably priced. The dessert tray, OMG. This is a dedicated and professional restauranteur that offers a truly wonderful dining experience.

Staff was lovely, place was spacious and a beautiful evening outdoors. Food was really delicious. My pasta was a bit too cooked for me and not enough of the add ons (pasta heavy) but the flavors were amazing. I would definitely go back. I’m very picky about my Italian Food!
