We met friends for lunch, at their suggestion, to fully appreciate the view which is gorgeous. The restaurant is in an old house and is not very big, perhaps 12 tables, I would recommend booking. There is an extensive menu and the food was super, except for my sons' Entrecôte which was overdone. Desserts were very good and the wine... More

I have seen the signs, but never thought to visit. Then a colleague recommended this place. According to him, this was one of the best authentic Italian restaurants in South Africa, and I have to agree! The service was friendly, the owner even came to chat to us and recommended some dishes. All of us enjoyed it tremendously. The main... More

Wow, this was indeed a wonderful surprize to find an authentic Italian restaurant in the middle of the banana farms! The setting is beautiful, with lush green gardens surrounding the restaurant and a distant view on the ocean. The owner greeted us warmly and the staff were excellent. But the food! The food was amazing! We ordered 6 different small... More

We often frequent Casa Toscana and recommend it to the most fussy eaters. We have never had an issue with the food or service. Always large portions, which I find value for money as compared to the franchises that serve pasta. We took my aunt from New York while she was on holiday, she travels extensively and only eats at...

We were referred to the restaurant by some friends we met. So, as a high light to our holiday, my wife and I went there for dinner. From starters to desert my wife was satisfied with the food, but I cannot say the same. I ordered the mussel soup which arrived with very little liquid and really too salty and... More

After hearing and reading all the great comments, we booked at Casa Toscana for dinner. Lovely surprise to see the the view from there! Our starters were nice but we were both disappointed by our main courses. My husband had the rib-eye steak. A big piece of meat, served with rosemary infused olive oil and a huge amount of thin...
