Authentic Italian food in the heart of the canelands with a great view of the sea

We discovered this tucked-away gem a few years ago and eagerly went back with family and friends on our recent holiday. The food was as great as ever, and the kids (age range from 2-11) loved playing on the lawn outside. Every single meal was melt-in-the-mouth delicious. The kids were given their... read more

Excellent set up with a view over beautiful Mpenyati lagoon. This is one of the best restaurants on the Natal south Coast. Opened only end week apart from public holidays. Make sure you book in advance. Delicious italian food and warm atmosphere.

Casa Toscana is a lovely old stone house set a little inland, but elevated with a beaitiful view of the beach & Mpenjati estuary. Slightly off the beaten track but signposted so easy to find. Myself & 3 friends went for Sunday lunch & were not disappointed! Booking is a must as they are very busy. The staff are friendly... More

This family-owned restaurant in a (slightly) ramshackle farm house has the air of a best-kept secret. It would be worth a trip for the view alone but the food is faultless - seriously good, authentic Italian food. It's pricey but well worth it - there are few things more wonderful than a chilled bottle of Springfield and squid ink pasta... More

It was so lovely to re-visit Casa Toscana again - we were here a few times during our last trip and we were welcomed back like old friends! Excellent food, excellent service - stunning views. From our starters to our main meals to our desserts - all perfect.

A house lost in a back road of the Hibiscus Coast, transformed in a warm and friendly restaurant. You will be treated with a delicious traditional Italian cuisine, and I will recommend choice of the Red Sangiovese on the wine list, The staff is very friendly, you just wait for your meal the right time to enjoy the atmosphere and...
