Casa Nostra Review
It's not often you find truly outstanding Italian food so far from Italy, but this small and very popular joint in the modern bustling Makati district serves up the authentic flavors of the "old country" by keeping it simple. Fresh homemade pasta, gnocchi, and pizzas are all delicious and won't break the bank; other familiar classics here include carpaccio and ossobuco. With only a dozen or so tables, it can fill up quickly, so reserve ahead in order to avoid disappointment.
