“Garden Fresh Italiano!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2010

We found this restaurant when first visiting the area upon finding out we were moving here. We now go at least once a month. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and the owners are always there to welcome you. The service is great and attentive. The food is made with care, and a lot of items are made with items from their great vegetable garden. Personally, my husband and I love their mussels in red sauce. The homemade raviolis and eggplant parmesan are fantastic, as are the Chicken Scariapello and eggplant/veal special. They also have a weekly e-newsletter that tells you what the weeks specials are. So far, it's the only Italian restaurant in the area we've found worthwhile of our patronage.

“Great fresh food in a friendly setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2010

Casa Nuova is a friendly neighborhood restaurant with a menu to match the best big city Italian restaurants. Maria takes time to know her guests and Chef Antonio is a wizard in the kitchen and garden. The vegetables are fresh from their organic garden and keep their fresh picked taste. Specials are truly unique and the list is almost as varied as the regular menu. They will prepare an item from the dinner menu if requested during lunch.

“My friend couldn't stop raving about this great little find in Alpharetta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2009

The place was almost full upon our arrival, but luckily enough there was an open table just waiting for us and therefore did not need reservations. This place was excellent and my buddy could not stop comparing them to Papadeaux which was horrible from the night before. He ordered grilled salmon dish which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the chicken marsala was excellent. We will definitely return to this place to try out the other items on the menu for the rest of the week.

“Best Italian Around!! Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2009

Dining at Casa Nuova is always delicious. Their marinara sauce is probably the best I've ever had, made fresh every day. The cheese tortellini in champagne sauce is one of my favorites. Excellent food. However, the venue is small and despite the amount of time they've been in business, they can't seem to master the art of reservations. So, if you've made a reservation, don't expect to be seated for 30 min to an hour after your reservation. On busy nights like Friday and Saturday the wait is long. Still worth it, but I suggest going on a different night.
