At Casa Nostra Pizzeria & Ristorante Italiano, patrons can settle their grumbling stomachs and rampaging buffaloes with a bevy of hearty eats from the world’s most boot-shaped country. Amid a tidy atmosphere that's both elegantly casual and casually elegant, visitors can relax and soak in the restaurant’s soothing earthy hues while twirling forks like a tipsy ice skater in a bowl of tasty pasta, such as the spaghetti alla bolognese ($11.99) or shrimp linguini alfredo ($13.99). Diners who got stuck halfway through their werewolf transformation will prefer to pack in palatable proteins with a meaty entree such as the sautéed veal scaloppini ($15.99) and pollo parmigiana with fried breaded chicken breast ($15.99). Otherwise, overcome phobias of circular objects by calmly devouring a perfectly prepared pizza such as the margherita ($10.99–$12.99) or the Giovanni with cheese and pepperoni ($10.99–$12.99). End the meal in classic Sicilian fashion by leaving the gun and taking the cannoli ($5.99). Additionally, a selection of wine and beer lets diners quench thirsts without unscrewing the fire hydrant outside.
A home-style meal away from home is not only enjoyable, it sparks comforting memories of steamy bowls of pasta and Grandpa’s stories of digging trenches in stylish trench coats during the trench-digging fad of ’49. Enjoy hearty Italian fare at Casa Nostra Pizzeria & Ristorante Italiano while reminiscing about the good ole days, when flat screens kept mosquitoes out and high-definition viewing meant reading a dictionary while perched atop a tree branch.

Casa Nostra Pizzeria & Ristorante
Mario and Nina Pelagalli use recipes passed down from family members from Rome and Naples as the blueprints for Casa Nostra Pizzeria & Ristorante's Italian cuisine. As the owners revealed to Sun Thisweek, Nina's mother creates the restaurant's sauces from scratch to ensure they carry on the family tradition of culinary excellence. Her concoctions blanket the 25 pastas on Casa Nostra's dinner menu, which also includes pizzas, paninis, and veal and chicken entrees. Having recently taken over a neighboring bar, the Pelagallis' restaurant now accommodates even more guests with roomier dining quarters and an expanded liquor stock. Evening entertainment includes Frank Sinatra tributes that pay homage to the crooner's singing ability and talent for intermittently firing blue lasers from his eyes.
