“Yum!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

This restaurant has two locations, one in downtown LA and another in Pacific Palisades, this review is about the second. Tucked way up in the highlands this relaxes Italian cafe is really yummy. We went there for a lunch with a large group and service and flavor were no problem at all. The menu was extensive but the pasta, sauces, etc. were all absolutely tasty.

“Wonderful Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

Went there with my wife for my birthday. From the moment we walked in, the restaurant staff made us feel welcome. The service was very good and the food was exceptional. Portions were good and really not pricey given the location and the value for the meal. I would highly recommend this establishment. It seems that it is a restaurant frequented by many locals and from what I observed, they were greeted like old friends.

“A Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Unless you live in Pacific Palisades you probably never heard of Casa Nostra, which is unfortunate. It is a neighborhood gem with truly gourmet Italian cuisine. Several of my friends who are true foodies (and who don't live in the area) consider it to be among the top Italian restaurants in LA. I heatedly agree. Several of my friends echo my own belief that the food here is better than most we tried in Italy! If you go, try the house specialty, branzino. A bonus -- NO CORKAGE!

“Good food, service and atmosphere: what's not to like.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2012

This restaurant was a real treat as it is located in one of the canyons close to the beach in the Pacific Palisades. It is frequented by locals so we arrived early to get a good table in the enclosed patio area where it is quieter. There were four of us so we all tried different seafood entrees. I would have be pleased with any of them. We had the batter-dipped squash blossoms as an appetizer. Perfect. The service is really special as the waiters were pleasant and attentive, unlike many waiters in the LA area who want you to know that they are really actors. The prices are reasonable and there is good parking. I'm looking forward to our next visit to Casa Nostra.
