This place fills up quickly but well worth it! Great Italian food and a very reasonable price. Very comfortable (simple) decor so not big on romance but more than makes up for it with the meal itself. Quick service, nice staff, good meal. We will definitely return ... more than once !!

The food here is EXCELLENT and made fresh. The ambiance is nice as well although it is small inside. The Hosts/Waiters were quite nice. You have to get a Pear Tart for desert, the crust is OUTSTANDING. I can't wait to return to the area to eat here again.

We truly did not have great expectations of the place - but decided to try it anyway. It was amazing!! Small but intimate - great service by the wait staff - and the... More

Three of us went for dinner. We were quickly seated and waited on. Our friend tried the special, Seafood Casa Nostra and loved it. My wife had Chicken Leonardo and also loved it. I had Shrimp and Scallops, which was good, but looking at the Seafood Casa Nostra, I would have preferred it. Two of us had soup, which was... More

This is a very small place without a lot of atmosphere but the food is delicious. We've tried various pasts dishes and loved them all. My personal fave is the penne Bolognese.
