Very nice, good atmosphere. Hot meals, worth the wait. Be back again for Valentine's day. Mall setting, but easy to find. Right off rt# 19 and fort island rd.

If you were in Crystal River and missed this place, go back. Norma's is a real treat, while small, the atmosphere is dark and cozy. The owner Norma interacts with guests and provides many great dishes and some off-menu items that are excellent. Beer and wine only, with a limited wine list with carefully selected wines. Thanks to Norma and... More

My husband and I went for dinner and had a lovely meal. The Bruschetta was delicious. We both had the special of the day which was a Chicken Touscana it had chicken breast with spinach mushrooms and topped with cheese and a sherry wine sauce with a touch of cream served over pasta which was cooked perfectly. The portion was... More

This is an intimate dining experience. Our hosts were locals and knew the owners/chefs well. The service was excellent and not as slow as expected for a "Mom and Pop" place where everything is cooked to order. Cloth napkins, paper placemats. others in the party enjoyed the wine. Friendly staff.

I don't even know where to begin with this review. The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is nice, but as far as I'm concerned, it's lacking in every other aspect. If you take a child with you don't order the "children's portion", and don't be surprised when you get your side salad of browning lettuce.

I do not get the great reviews, they must be coming from the owners? I have been eating Italian food all my life and I have never tasted anything as mediocre as the food at this restaurant. I can get better tasting sauce from a jar. The pasta was under cooked , I don't mean andante, I mean the past... More

Our first visit here after living in the area for 5 years! There were 4 of us and each had a different dish. All of us thought our food was excellent. It did take a little longer but well worth the wait. My wife had the Cuban pot roast which I tasted and it was outstanding. We will definitely return... More

I went a few months ago and forgot to write a review, been back because this is a small, intimate setting dinner place with excellent waiters and the owners right there in the middle. Making sure everything is great.

I could not believe I had not noticed this restaurant before since I have been in this strip mall several times. It is only open for dinner tue-sat and is quite small but the food is wonderful and worth the wait. It is family run and everything is made on site and you can really tell the difference, fresh and... More

Every town has a special little unassuming restaurant that is a hidden gem.... Casa De Norma is ours. Tucked away in a small strip mall in Crystal River is this special place run by Norma, the namesake and Liseo, her husband and chef, they have a small menu but will create dishes upon request. My favorite is the Pollo Mediterranean... More
