Welcome to our home in name, spirt and taste!
Casa Nostra doesn’t need translation, here you feel as if you are stepping into “our home”.
Italian is spoken by our staff and guests, the familiar aromas that are stored in the warm memories of your last Italian holiday come alive and your eye is caught by the familiar, yet exotic colours of the rich antipasti buffet.
Every month we feature a different region or style, experiment with new pizza toppings and host seasonal events. Located in the most photographed, iconic art nouveau building in Riga, our Latvian credentials are also authentic as the essence of great cuisine are daily market fresh ingredients – local meat, fruit and vegetables. The decor is cosy, friendly and eclectic – as is the clientele – laughing groups of friends, incognito business discussions around the corner and families with children on the weekends.
Driven by the energy of a love story, its owners Sandra and Adriano preside over their most valuable asset – their home – that you are most welcome to share!
The most striking visual treat on entering Casa Nostra is the seemingly endless selection of antipasti dishes by the window. It’s an even better taste treat! A serve-yourself plate is either €5.50 small or €7 large and you can choose from the classic grilled vegetables, cured meats or marinated mushrooms or savour Francesco’s special version of Funghi Ripieni or veal smothered with his own tangy salsa verde. Just like in Italy, the selection changes with fresh additions all day long.
We all know all about Italian food! Casa Nosta says – maybe not! . . . . . but we would like you to! So, every month, Casa Nostra will feature a different region of Italy or type of cuisine and present special events, tasting menus, wine and product presentations showcasing those specialities. Having marked Carnevale in Venezia and Valentine’s Day with the unique dolci particular to these festivals, sign up here if you would like to receive our programme of upcoming events.
At Casa Nostra, we have a generous selection of high quality Italian wine chosen by Adriano Carlesi himself. From a cheeky that he bought from an unknown winemaker on a dusty winding road when he got lost on the way to the autostrada, to the heavenly that he haggled long and hard for with Rome’s finest wine Merchant, here you will find a full range of wines to suit your palate and food choices.
