La Casetta Italian Bistro

Wife-and-husband owners of La Casetta Italian Bistro Nicole and Matthew Steelman sit with Chef Kenny Fernandez and a full table of his delectable specialties, clockwise from left, Mussels Alla Tarantina, rib eye, lobster ravioli, veal La Casetta, Salumi e Formaggio and the homemade gnocchi.

Everybody seems to have their favorite Italian restaurant. It's one of those things that folks seem to always have a strong opinion about, and everyone considers themselves an expert. 

But hitting up the same place time and again can eventually wear thin. A true foodie needs to get out there, explore and try something new! Case in point- La Casetta Italian Bistro in Ocean View, a fantastic new spot we just visited recently. Check out Pamela Dollak's story on it.
