First night in La Paz and walking the streets enjoying a nice spring evening. Stopped at Casa Nostra, Menu was full Italian and despite the restaurant being empty decided to give it a try. Had lots of fun with the service staff as we speak essentially no Spanish and theirs was good. Had the ceasar salad that came deconstructed and... More

I hate to be the bad guy but.... I've got to be honest.l, the food in this place was a waste of money. I ordered a fettuccine al pesto, and the sauce was from a pre-made supermarket brand with no additional flavor or imagination. And of top of that the fettuccine was already cut into little pieces when served! I'm... More

We have passed by this restaurant many times but only went there yesterday. A delightful discovery for us. Casa Nostra is located in a remodeled, gracious older home, on Avenida Ballivian, the main avenue in Calacoto (La Paz's Southern Zone/Zona Sur). Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated. Caring, professional service from our waiter and the owner. We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch. My... More

We went to Casa Nostra and there were very few people there, generally, not a good sign. But we decided to eat there anyhow because the menu looked good. BTW, the menu has pictures of every meal, excellent for us non-Spanish speaking travelers. The restaurant is elegant and looks to be pricey but it really isn't. I had Chicken Cacciatore... More

Given that we were looking for something nearby, having seen this place on the main street of the city made it worth trying. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has excellent service, but is exactly what you would find as a 'normal' italian restaurant in latin america. Even if I asked for my pasta cooked al dente, it was still... More

Recommended on Trip Advisors and by locals alike we were unfortunately disappointed in Casa Nostra. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant. The pasta dishes unfortunately disappointed especially compared to the excellent food we had at Fellini.

This place it's really nice, it is fancy and the food it's great. Prices are not that cheap but it it's worth it. Service it's great, your food comes out fast and they are very polite.

attentive and friendly service, fresh bread, nice Bolivian wine by the glass, very spicy Spaghetti Puttanesca. I think we miscommunicated with my awful Spanish though: I had wanted grilled calamari but got what they had on the menu (deep-fried), which was okay but a bit much with my spicy spaghetti. Lovely decor and not expensive at all, when converted into... More
