As usual a warm welcome from Lala and Tessa. Always personal service from Lala - I'm not the only one - everybody is greeted alike! We chose some Italian specials - Tortollini with Riccotta and Mushroom in a stunning sauce - Italian Meat Balls with Spaghetti - hearty fare and wonderfull. A gift of a glorious ice cream cake and...

La Trinita is a small italian eatery in a shopping centre in Kyalami , no passing trade to speak of , but getting a table without a booking cannot be done. La La takes each order personally and then goes and makes it , this is not fast food people , sit back and relax and soak up the atmosphere... More

Lala and Tessa make you feel as a member of the family or a lifelong friend as soon as you walk in the door. Hugs greet you as does the energy that Lala exudes for her food and her "familia". Make sure to try the bruschetta to start and any of her veal dishes are a must. I'll be honest... More

We visited La Trinita today for the first time and cannot believe we have not been here before. I had Kingklip with capers and my husband had the veal with olives. My kids had the bambino pizzas and said they were the best pizza they had ever eaten! The food was quite simply outstanding. The atmosphere perfect. Thank you La... More

The Personal touch of a family run restaurant makes a huge difference. Every time we go there is a big welcome, even when we take friends they get remembered, including La La remembering what everyone's favourite is. Our favourites are: spaghetti vongole run through with a touch of chilli, 24 hour marinated baby chicken, lasagna, calves liver, fillet in pepper... More

Dear Rene thank you for your review. I am deeply concerned that you were so dissatisfied. La Trinita is run and managed by the owners themselves who are hands on and extremely attentive to everyone of their patrons. Being a table of 16 would mean that you had to have made a reservation. With regard to reservations La-La speaks to... More

La Trinita is the best around. Lala and her mom go out of their way to create a superb atmosphere and excellent service. Their dishes, everything from pasta, pizza and meat are to die for. From the friendly welcome to the service and the meal, it is always a great occasion when one visits there.

This is probably one of the best italian restaurants I have been in around the city. The owners make you feel very welcomed and they personalise the experience of their restaurant for you by introducing themselves and speaking to each and everyone of you to find out your preferences. For a vegetarian like myself there was a lot to choose... More
