Casa Nostra Restaurante (Playa) Havana

                  I have been told to come here from about the time that it opened about a year ago. Described to me as true Italian, the owner is from Sicily, it was about time that I paid this place a visit. It did not disappoint, as a matter of fact, I'm going to have to return and do a better job on the review. We came with another couple and I didn't want to make a fuss. Smoking is permitted outdoors....very limited space.  You're given an extensive pizza menu and a board featuring the daily fare of that moment which includes; Salads, Pastas, Meat and Fish. They boast a wood burning oven, Italian style, so we started with a pizza for the middle of the table to share....very good, they known how to make pizza. As for the main courses, the ladies had the breaded chicken cutlets and we had the octopus al carbon and the seared marlin. All were excellent, the marlin cooked to perfection and the octopus was the best I've had in Cuba. Our meals came with little bags filled with focaccia. The decor is simple, the grill and pizza oven are outside by the patio. The only complaint I have is that the food comes out way to quickly, it may be done intentionally to turn over tables. If you don't want to eat and run I suggest you tell them ahead of time to slow down. Below I've posted the few pictures that were taken quickly at the table and while walking to the bathroom. Dinner for 4 with 6 drinks, $66 before gratuity.

PS......their Sicilian Cannoli for dessert was top notch.
