My husband and I had dinner at this restaurant ... it was a 6 or 7 course dinner which was so beautifully presented ... needless to say the food was delicious and so fulfilling. The waiters were friendly and the service was excellent. And yes, I strongly recommend this place. Hats off to the chef!

Delicious italian restaurant at Movenpick hotel - quite long menu of absolutely delicious italian or italian- inspired dishes. We had perfectly made cacciuco, seafood stew, spicy and tasty and an excellent tuna steak served with aglio & olio, fresh and perfectly prepared. Very nice

Very nice venue in and outside. We were eagerly looking forward to the re-opening of the restaurant. Service was ok, despite the fact that some products were not available. Pasta appears to be made freshly, however some dishes may have been to spicy, which may not reflect the authentic Italian seasoning.

We tried this restaurant for dinner during our stay in the Mövenpick Tala Bay. We tried the Chef's Special of the week (a steamed Sea Bass with butter lemon sauce and vegetables), the Ossobuco with Risotto, the Tuna Steak, and Tiramisu for desert. Everything tasted great and the service was great too. We will visit this restaurant again next time... More

Movenpick Tala Bay swarms with children, so couples may want to have a nice quiet dinner in a fancy restaurant ; that is what Casalingo offers. The setting is very classy, either inside or out, the staff extremely friendly and professional. We had a simple Italian meal of 3 pasta dishes and 2 bottles of mineral water. Nice, not spectacular,... More

Great Italian restaurant at Tala Bay. We had the set menu which had two or maybe three options for each of the three courses. I wouldn't say it was just as mama would make it, rather it was a good rendition of Italian classics. I had the osso-bucco which was fantastic. The trio of pannecotta was a great way to... More

We had a wonderful meal at this Italian restaurant in the Movenpick Tala Bay Resort. The service was prompt and friendly. Both the appetizer and the main meal were delicious and the recommended bottle of wine was superb. Definitely a must when at this resort.
