Casa Nostra Ristorante
Posted by Anonymous on 06/06/2012
The restaurant was loud and filled with louder kids. That said, it welcomes families and children- yet it took almost an hour and a half to get a cheese pizza for a starving 4 year old on a thursday night. We arrived and were seated at 6:30, ordered right away and it was after 8 and we had not been served. The food quality is good, but everyone in our party of 6 had their meal come out at a different time so between the wait time, noise and the service- I won't be going back.

From the minute you walk in the door where the owner greets you, you know this is a special place. Neighboring residents have waited more than 20 years for a great restaurant and finally it is here. All of the food is house made; pasta is fresh, desserts and bread made on site and no canned tomatoes! This is true , authentic Italian just like you’re a guest in their home, hence the name “Casa Nostra” meaning Our House. Personal favorites are the pasta bolognaise where you will save your bread to mop of every drop of sauce, Black squid pasta with langostino, Duck Ragu, Calamari Salad, Branzino- whole fish with marinated artichoke hearts, kalamata olives and sautéed cherry tomatoes and incredible sautéed spinach, and what’s amazing? I have ordered so many new dishes here and everything is always delicious!! Their wine selection is amazing but if you elect to bring your own, there is no corkage! No split place charge, generous portions, It’s a TEN in my book. At the end of your meal, the owner brings you homemade cookies and dessert wine compliments of the house! They are not here to take your money, they are here to make your meal an enjoyable one!
