Large tables build community by inviting guests to meet others and share something new. The nourishment is shared as much as eaten. Come dine with us and discover a little more.
Children are welcome to use the playground after 5:30 pm and all-weekend long. Find a small people’s table near the glass doors. Casa is very ‘Kid Friendly’. Your children will meet new little friends.
