Great Pasta

We have been to Casa Toscana several times over the years and never been 100 pc happy before but decided to give it another try. We were very happy with our meals, both pasta from a large selection of pasts and I would say that this is their forte. The two we chose were right at the top of the... read more

We were staying at San Lameer to celebrate my 65th birthday and decided to venture out of our wonderfully safe environment and spoil ourselves at a sumptuous Italian lunch. Rita and I had been to Casa Toscana some years back and had been impressed. Now we revisited with our friends Nic and Emma and weren’t disappointed. For starters we shared... More

We went for lunch on the recommendation of a friend and were very impressed with the authentic Italian food. There is a real Tuscan feel about the whole restaurant - well done.

Exceptional food, you definitely won't be dissapointed. Very friendly and helpful car guard. The road and path to the restaurant could definitely do with some lights, or clear signs. The menu is not very varied, but I am sure every dish is great. True italian food.

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 own table and thoroughly enjoyed the calamari, pasta... 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
