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...

Real good Italian food (no pizzas). Nice pasta dishes with sauces not only with Italian names but with Italian flavour and ingredients. Friendly service. Nice atmosphere. Only to find for people who knows the way...

We ate there recently and all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the menu was also a delight to read as they have printed new ones - nice feel and look. Wine selection was quite good - pricey for mid range wine though. The waitron service was not as attentative as it should and can definitely be... More

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!
