Owner Stuart is an engaging host who managed to tell us his life story in our first ten minutes sitting at table at water side. We were on the search for another restaurant for lunch during our brief outing by boat to Livingston from Rio Dulce and dropped in to Casa Nostra by chance on the recommendation of Moon Guide...

Had dinner and brreakfast here! Food was awesome :) The pizza was great and huge, the fruit filled french toast (more like a donut in texture) was really yummy. I loved the hashbrown made from plaintains I think. Owner was very nice and helped us with directions and recommendations to other restaurants and hotels.

We had a lovely meal at Casa Nostra. We also really enjoyed meeting the owner, Stuart. He is very friendly and a wealth of information. Stuart, if you are reading this, we are the couple that didn't have enough money for the tip and had to come back the next morning. I also understand that the rooms there are very... More

Que rico! This place has the best service in Livingston. I especially love the homemade yogurt and homemade chai. I guess thats the best way to put it: homemade. Stuart, the owner, is your man when it comes to service, travel questions, or all around help. He´ll make you feel like a local in no time. Gracias Casa Nostra!

The owner Stewart is such an amazing host! The food is always fresh, hot, and freaking delicious. I'm a guacamole fiend and casa nostra serves it up perfectly with the freshest sea food in town. There are a few good restaurants in town but I always find myself comping back here! Try it and you'll be hooked

We stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights and ended up eating nearly all our meals here as it was good value, fresh and delicious. We had the Tapado one evening, which we really enjoyed and then conch and fish of the day the following evening. We also got to try a slice of someone else's pizza and... More

Doing an internship on the Rio Dulce, I had the opportunity to come to Livingston quite often - Casa Nostra was always my first, and sometimes only stop. There's nothing this restaurant doesn't lack - you're facing the gorgeous Amatique Bay, there's a tranquil tropical vibe, friendly staff, and of course, the food. Being a vegetarian, it's especially hard to... More

The nicest outdoor dining in Livingston. Dine next to the river under the stars or our umbrellas. We have the best food in town, specializing in Vegetarian, fresh fish, shrimp, calamari and Pizza. Our Shrimp and Calamari Pizza is our speciality. We also offer Curries, Masala and Paprika dishes. We know how to prepare fish, shrimp and Calamari in incredible ways that you will not forget. I buy my fish, shrimp and Calamari from the boats in my back yard at 6:30 AM daily. I promise you the best dishes in Livingston. We make everything from scratch including our salad dressings, Curries, Masala, Mojitos, Pina Coladas and more. Our dough and pizza sauce are our own creation. The dough is made the day before to increase the natural flavours of the dough overnight. Our pizza sauce is nothing you have ever had before. We can prepare special vegetarian dishes as you like and our Vegan pizza is outrageous.
