“Great wine, great service, great vibe, nice break from PDC chaos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We passed Casa Nuestra en route to beachside massages. We were so relaxed afterward that we thought we shuld grab a beer. We stayed fir a pizza abd wine. The owner, Luca, is friendly and genuine. He's from Rome and is bringing his cuisine and vibe yo PDC. If you're looking for good food, friendly service, a good wine selection to complement the traditional Mexican bar offerings, and want to relax in a cool spot away from the chaos of 5th ave, this is your place. You won't be disappointed!

“Lovely location with average food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

We wanted to like this place. The location is really nice. But we found the food very average. We had pasta and chicken and there was nothing at all memorable about the food.

“Italian Restaurant, won't be disappointed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

Extremely friendly and attentive staff. Excellent pasta made on premises (by Marco). Relaxed atmosphere off the main drag. Ocean breezes, just a very nice relaxed dinner with very good food.

Many thanks John for sharing your experience! Fresh pasta has been made daily by the chef Daniele and always suggested with enthusiasm by Luca (the owners). Hoping you are going to join us again.

“Wonderful pasta and salad”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Recently dined at Casa Nostra and had some wonderful penne with arrabiata sauce (one of the specials of the day) accompanied by a salad. The salad was very creative, beautifully presented and included a lot of fresh vegetables.

The restaurant specializes in Italian cuisine and the pasta is made right on the premises.

They offer a wonderful menu and the wait staff is very friendly and accommodating.

The restaurant is a bit difficult to find, and the only reason we stumbled across it is that it is not far from the condo we rented and we passed it several times on our way to the beach. I'm glad we decided to dine there because the food is exceptionally delicious.
