Disappointed with our food at La Casina. The staff were friendly and attentive, however, meals although freshly made were only average tasting.

Dropped in without a reservation on Easter Sunday for dinner and very glad we did. Real Italian waiters and real Italian food! We could not fault the service, other restaurants need to learn from these guys. The fettuccine with lamb ragout was so yummy. The restaurant filled up quickly but had such a great atmosphere and the quality of service... More

Love the bush setting of this restaurant. Great meal as always. With a party of 5, we were lucky to get a table, on this very busy Easter weekend in the Great South Western region. Quite busy with a couple other large groups in the restaurant and only two wait staff. Food was excellent. The pasta was 'el dente'. Enjoyed... More

Ate here tonight, what a disappointment.. Service was slow. When our meals eventually arrived, after waiting over 35 mins, they were small in size and oily. Couldn't get any waiters attention for more drinks thru out the evening, gave up and went to the bar myself. Definately not worth the price we paid..Will not be back.

Thank you for your review. You guys came in with no booking on one of the busiest night of the year. When we took your order we said it was going to be AT LEAST 30 MINUTES so we think 35 is not too bad. Thanks of understanding we were really busy and came at the bar yourself… We always... More

We had dinner on Saturday night. The service was terrible, we even had to go to the non-service bar and ask for table service for pre-dinner drinks after waiting 15 minutes of being seated. I had the seafood spaghetti, the spaghetti was only half cooked and the amount of seafood was very poor. My wife had the Grilled Smoked Chorizo... More

Thank you for your review… Sorry but if you come in late on a very busy night you can't expect the best service. You went up to the bar because you must be very impatient as other customers waited at the table for the same amount of time and were really happy at the end. Your wife had an entree... More

We came here today for lunch while on a family holiday in Busselton. The menu was comprehensive and full of delicious authentic Italian dishes. There were 7 diners and we all loved our choices. It was in a delightful setting and the staff were fabulous. Very nice!

A quiet, warm little place. Was hard to choose from the menu cause everything sounded good. We have pasta and the pork belly and both were great. Highly recommend the pasta. Had dessert too. Use your entertainment book card and it's makes it a bargain for such good food. Wait staff were super friendly and helpful. A big yes from... More

Nice restaurant but $40 for a ravioli is overpriced, especially when served lukewarm, for that price it should be an explosion of flavours and it wasn't but then I had to eat it too fast before it went cold. Maybe if they'd used slightly warmed plates. My husband had the steak and that was amazing and he very much enjoyed... More

Thank you for your review. We don't have anything on the menu at $40, the ravioli is $36 and our pastas range from $32 to $38. Making the ravioli is not an easy job and quite a lot of labour is behind that dish, we also use the best possible local or Italian ingredients and when you add freight costs... More

Had dinner. Food was decent but not spectacular for the high prices. Was game to try out restaurant on their Wednesday night specials where certain pastas priced at $19/-. Ambience pleasant. At the end of the night and upon bill payment, experience spoilt by staff insistence that we ordered a higher end main as opposed to their specials. 'Special' dishes... More

Hi thank you for your review...We are happy to hear that you enjoyed you dishes. As we tried to mention on the night it would have been great if you told us when the dishes where presented to you instead of complaining at payment time. The risotto and pappardelle from the pasta special are completely different from the one on... More
