We have gone to Casa Nostra multiple times. The food is always great. the service is superb. It is little hidden away up the hill on Palisades Drive in a nice setting. I love their sea food pasta dishes which I order pretty much every time I go.

I'm reluctant to reveal the secret: there's a wonderful Italian restaurant hidden away in the Palisades Highlands that locals love for lots of reasons: the food is consistently wonderful, featuring homemade pasta; the service is excellent; and the decor is warm and inviting.

It's good but not great food. It's kinda a destination spot but not good enough to travel for. I'm sure we'd return when really really lazy and hungry, because it's close, but probably won't recommend it. Greeted and seated immediately on arrival. Restaurant was 80% full and busy on a Saturday night. I was expecting more. Casa Nostra's food was... More

Went with relatives who dine here often. Up the hill in Pacific Palisades but not a far drive from the ocean. Great pasta, seafood and appetizers. The place is true authentic Italian in a beautiful setting. Service a bit slow but no issues.

What a wonderful restaurant! Absolutely delicious food (including homemade pasta) and superb service. A good list of wines by the glass, too. Sitting in their enclosed terrace, with its canyon views, was the icing on the cake. One of the friends I was with, who lives nearby, said that restaurants have come and gone in that location, but that this... More

Hidden away, as many great restaurants are, up Santa Inez Canyon in the Palisades Highlands is this neighborhood gem, which we've tried to keep as a secret spot. Not any more - it's celebrating the 10th anniversary & all is going well. Charming exterior & interior Italiano decor. Authentic dishes served inside or outside on the covered patio. Nice wine...

We recently tried this restaurant for the 1st time. It’s up in the hills in a small commercial complex. The interior of the restaurant was nothing special. The service was good. Food: Calamari appetizer (good with plenty of dipping sauce), Burrata with roasted peppers and tomatoes (cheese good but tomatoes were not ripe), Papardelle D’Anatra (good), Spinach Gnocchi (too rich...

After visiting the Getty Villa, we looked for a good Italian restaurant nearby and found Casa Nostra in Yelp. Five minutes driving distance from the Getty Villa. Excellent food and service. Well recommended, quiet and a great luncheon altogether. Good traditional Italian menu with reasonable serving sizes. Gnocchi was excellent as was the risotto and lobster. Great choice if in...

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,... More
