Literally tripped across La Casa trying to find our hotel for the night. Thought the outside looked interesting so we gave it a try. Interior decor was very Italian and comfortable, table spacing was well done so conversation was intimate. The best part was the outstanding quality of both the food and staff. The lamb shoulder was to die for... More

The best lasagna I've had in a restaurant. My husband and son had lamb chops that they enjoyed as well.

This place was listed as no 1 on tripadvisor, but what a disappointment! Shabby decor greeted us and the greeter was confused regarding our table reservation. We were then seated in the restaurant, surrounded by crying babies. Not what we expected! The food was ok - the grilled garlic prawns were good, as were the calamari. However, generous portions do...

This restaurant was excellent! You have to try the Pastichio (sp) - a greek lasagna. The service was excellent, the restaurant was busy that night and and our waitress did try and get by as much as she could, but when she did, she took the time to ensure we had all we needed and that the food was what...

Spent our evening at La Casa. The atmosphere is amazing and I was immediately impressed by the wonderful smells. We sat out on the patio and our server was very lovely. We ordered Saganaki appy and the Dinner platter which was amazing! Must try!

I ordered a sampler dish containing: back ribs, lemon chicken, and spaghetti bolognese. All three were delicious. I love lemon chicken, and this lemon chicken did not disappoint. What was unexpected is that the spaghetti bolognese was the best I have had in my life!! The sauce is sooo good. Loved it. Wish I knew the recipe. The waiter, and... More

A long lasting restaurant owned by a family that came from Crete. It was quiet on a Friday evening. We had appetizers of Humous and Taramasalata with pita and then the night's special of lamb in lemon and mustard, which was a large portion accompanied by broccoli, carrots, rice and potato. Everything was delicious but I'd recommend checking on portion... More

We love this restaurant. Great food and excellent staff. Portions are big (we actually shared an entree - baked spaghetti and meatballs - yummmm and had trouble finishing it). In summer make reservations as this is a popular place.

If you are looking for a place that cooks up a delightful greek meal, this is the place to come to. It however is not something that comes with an inexpensive price tag. Overall service is good, not awesome but the food is worth coming here for.
