We visited the restaurant in January 2015 as we had heard that it was amazing etc.. Firstly it's like in the middle of a very lonely place with no proper parking that the carguard had to actually warn us that we will probably get stuck in the mud and not be able to get out later... But he was helpfull... More

Thank you for taking time to write this review. We are really sorry that you had apparently a not so good experience at our restaurant! We would like just to clarify that an Italian restaurant doesn't necessarily serve pizza... there is a lot of misunderstanding about Italian cuisine. At Casa Toscana we focus on homemade authentic Italian dishes, but not... More

Yes, they pull it off. Aperol? Yes sir! Would you like a Spritz? Of course! I had fantastic squid ink pasta followed by a slow-cooked rabbit stew. Lovely views, the perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday lunch. See you in December!

A visit to the area is not complete without a meal at Casa Toscana - amazing authentic Pasta dishes and a small but good selection of wine!

My wife and I took a drive from Hillcrest to Trafalgar for lunch today after an absence of far to long and we were not disappointed. It's even better than we remembered. The linguini fish roe dish was exquisite as was the squid ink spaghetti. We tried the Cioccolatissimo ( hope I got that right!) and is probably the best... More

everything about this restaurant is perfect, the decor, the service, the food, the view, the management, the setting, etc etc etc. but what tips it over to one of my absolute favourites, is the panacotta - one bite and Scotty beams you straight to heaven.

We visited this restaurant purely based on reviews Read on TripAdvisor. We were in the area & 2 other choices were either closed or not what we were looking for. Food was tremendous, tasty, well prepared & menu offered good value for money. Ambience was good, and it seemed to be popular with the locals which is always a good... More

Spend two nights in the vicinity of this restaurant and ate there both nights. Choices on the menu were a delight, dishes that I have not seen on local menus before. Prices were very reasonable, the only complaint was inattentive service.

I have been wanting to eat here for a long time as it is a favourite of my parents and some good friends. The view over the river is simply beautiful, the welcome on arrival and service makes you feel at home. Starter mussels, simple and full of flavour. Prawn and chilli pasta was also packed with delicious flavours with... More
