Great atmosphere and food BUT average service

Took a long Sunday drive to visit this establishment, enjoyed the food, view, atmosphere, but service was questionable.

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!

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
