Went based on Tripadvisor reviews. We don't get it. The service was awkward and slow, with the occasional bright spot. The homemade pastas (tried 3) were over sauced, oily, salty, with no opportunity to enjoy the pasta itself. For dessert, we had a stomach ache.

Dear Travelin F
Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion with us. We are saddened to hear that you couldn't enjoy your plates and that we couldn't fulfill your expectations and food preferences. The majority of our clients seem to like the way we prepare as well as serve our pasta. As we are preparing our plates freshly, a la minute, with freshly homemade pasta and sauces, we can adjust to individual preferences and normally get it right. We are sorry that in your case this didn't work and you couldn't enjoy the Casa Nostra experience.
We would love for you to give us another chance and share with us your individual preferences, so that we can prepare a plate that you will fully enjoy next time.
Saludos cordiales del equipo de Casa Nostra, Cristina and Marco

On your next trip to San Miguel, don't miss an evening at Casa Nostra. We enjoyed it so much the first time we went on this trip that we went back twice more...and we were only there a week! The people, the food, the view, and especially the service are absolutely exquisite. We didn't have any dish we would call 'average' and the vast majority of the food was just wonderful.

Take your time and enjoy the creations amidst a bird's eye view of the city basin. Leave slowly and enjoy the art collection throughout.

As repeat visitors, we're always looking for what's new. Casa Nostra is only a few months old and is now on our short list of 'must do' restaurants whenever we visit. If there were more like this one, we would have to plan longer trips.

I often travel somewhere for my wife's birthday. This year, SMA was the choice as I've read about new restaurants.
I wanted to take my wife to a new and different restaurant this time so I started looking for something really special and unique. Casa Nostra was the choice.
Starting with the simple and fast process of making the reservation (via email) with a couple of weeks in advance.
When we got to SMA, we strolled around downtown towards Casa Nostra and found it pretty quick and 30 minutes before our reservation. Chef Marco greeted us at the entrance and gave us a tour of the whole property, telling us the story of how they ended up in Mexico, particularly in SMA, and how they managed to create Casa Nostra.
He showed us the sculptures and art decorating the restaurant and gave us a slight explanation of the menu.
He later showed us to the terrace bar so we could wait on our table (though it was already set) and we had a drink just looking over the terrace to the whole town. Mixology is great.
Dinner was mindblowing: Simple but explosive mixtures of local and imported ingredients make his cuisine a tour from Switzerland to Italy and back to Mexico. Portions are abundant, specially the Tagliatelle Rueda Parmiggiano (wow!).
But what this restaurant really excels for is attention. EVERYONE makes you feel you're right at home or in your best friend's house.
The attention to your needs and details are outstanding.
There are several rooftops in SMA, but none is as comfortable peaceful and enjoying as Casa Nostra.
Thanks, Marco and all your staff, for making our dinner a memorable celebration!!!

Our small group thoroughly enjoyed dinners at Casa Nostra. The ambiance and special touches throughout the restaurant were intriguing, the staff friendly and attentive, the owner gracious and informative providing us his personal attention through the night. The drinks were fun and different, the wine delicious and food diverse. The parma wheel with fresh pasta is a must!
