Been there many times- never a dissapointment!

As we spend the winter months in the area, we are so happy to have this lovely restaurant close by. So,we take the chance on a sunny day for lunch at the small outside table under the tree with this view to die for. Andrea knows that I take the Calamari starter with the wonderful Zucchini pesto.

With every mouthful, the food became even more delicious. Everything was as it should be - excellent. Need to experience it for yourself. We will be going back for more. Italian cuisine at its best. Look out for the amazing specials in addition to a menu which spoils you for choice. Pic: Delicious calamari stuffed with prawns and spinach in... More

It's the crazy season - just after new year when every person and their dog is on holiday. We had to book ahead and negotiate our way in here. Arriving we are worried that with so many customers we will get sub-standard service. We are not disappointed. The service, with a packed restaurant for dinner, is fantastic. The food is... More

Best authentic Italian food on the South Coast! Very good pasta with wholesome deserts. I would give the bongo dessert a 10/10. I will defiantly return!!! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for quality food!

We had the priviledge to have lunch at Casa Toscana and as always were thoroughly treated. Cold Light Prosecco and Chardonnay were perfect companions on a sweltering day! The pasta dishes are made with care & love and Mariza, Andrea & team were on hand to advise as to the hidden gems such as the Limoncello Creme Brulee & handmade... More

We visited Casa Toscana a while ago, so this review is quite late. But I feel the need to write a review now, as Casa Toscana has pretty much set the standard for real Italian food for us in South Africa. We live in Johannesburg and we have searched all over to find another place serving similar quality food, but... More

Lovely Italian food is to be had here. Friendly staff. Food is gourmet style. However, You must be prepared to wait awhile as the food is being freshly prepared. Booking is essential.
