Lovely night out with friends. Food ok but lasagna cold in the middle and the risotto lacking a bit of creaminess flavour. The standout was the entree and dessert.
Dessert yummy but my husband's tiramisu had been sliced with a knife that had also been used to cut something with pesto, my husband is allergic to nuts so glad we spied a line of green on his slice before he took a bite, he just cut the affected part off to the side.

Had a great evening! Service was good, possibly could have been a bit more informative with suggestions as there is a decent amount of food on the menu and it was our 1st time. The garlic bread is an absolute must! So soft yet crispy! The motzeralla sticks were as my wife said "the best ive had" my calamari entree was a bit on the rubbery side. The pizza and pasta was amazing. Beautiful hand stretched base. Top quality!

We've been to Casa Nostra a few times and the food is always excellent. I ordered something different to my usual choices - the chicken meatballs and these were delicious. My husband had Lasagne and loved it. The meals are large! We started with a shared calamari and this is one of the best we've ever had. Comes with and excellent salad and very tasty vinaigrette. The service was superb - I don't know her name but she's always there, helpful and lively :)

It was our first time to Casa Nostra and we were very pleasantly surprised! It had a good atmosphere and we enjoyed our evening very much. We loved the polenta fries. Two of our group had pizza and I had the seafood risotto. All top quality and taste. We would have loved to try dessert, but we were too full! Thanks for a great evening.

The serving is humongous and delicious. We ordered lasagna, steak and pork belly and theyre all delicious. The lasagna is perfect but too heavy for my small tummy. The place has an Italian ambiance and it gets busier later in the night.

After a rough week, my partner and I found ourselves in need of some R&R and a delicious meal to lift our spirits. Casa Nostra delivered both, in a most impressive manner...

We were promptly seated upon arrival, and found our booth-side table to be well placed and comfortable. Attentive and friendly staff made ordering easy and provided a consistent level of service; meanwhile, candles and soft lighting created a cosy ambience. The owner's presence around the restaurant demonstrated a down-to-earth, customer oriented approach.

Wanting to save room for our mains, we shared a plate of mozzarella chips as appetizer. It would not be an exaggeration to say that these were TO DIE FOR, and we will order these on any future visit (of which we hope there will be many).

Our respective mains were the chicken parmigiana and the cannelloni piemonte, filled with spinach and ricotta. To say that the portion sizes are generous would be an understatement; my partner took 2/3 of his dinner home with him to enjoy the next day. Quality and quantity are clearly not mutually exclusive at Casa Nostra, as the food was absolutely delicious as well as plentiful!

Already full, we still couldn't pass up the opportunity to sample dessert, since we'd been so impressed by the rest of the food. My Tiramisu was like a heavenly cloud of coffee/cocoa perfection, while my partner's Coppa Pigiama (custard, gelato and fruit) blew his mind with its tantalizing combination of bold flavours.

In a single word: Bellissima! We plan to return at our earliest opportunity.
