For a family-style feed everyone will love, the Casa Nostra Pizza and Spaghetti House is the place to visit. Specialising in traditional Italian dishes, every meal is cooked with love and full of flavour. Order the creamy carbonara with bacon and egg, or opt for the spicy tomato puttanesca pasta served with olives, anchovies, capers and chilli. Their menu also includes a huge variety of main meals and pizzas, although we recommend running your eyes over the house specialties. Named after the restaurant itself, the Casa Nostra is a pasta dish packed with chicken and mushroom, drizzled in tomato and cream sauce and sprinkled with black pepper. Yum!
