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

Wonderful food, mostly made from scratch by the husband and wife owners. They do it all, cooking, serving, baking.... Soooo - come early or be prepared to wait. The owners are lovely people, the place is fairly small, a bit hard to find in a strip mall, the hours are dinner only 4 -8 or 9 pm, Tue. - Sat.

The restaurant is small but comfy. The food is so good and I have eaten there on holidays as well as weekends and week nights. Norma is a hard working gal and is a real sweetheart. She is so willing to please and she will.

We had dinner at La Casa di Norma, hoping the reviews were right. There is a sign When you enter there is a sign saying the wait for food is a little longer because meals are prepared fresh. The wait was incredibly long and worse for others than us. There is only one chef working the kitchen and 2 people... More

We have not been here in a while, but we're very favorably impressed with everything including updated decor. I had veal Romano and my wife had the Flounder. BOTH were very good if not excellent tasting and presentation was excellent. Bread was a pleasant change, with excellent taste and texture. Soup was excellent, salad was fairly routine. Service was good.
