I always experience a relaxed atmosphere at La Romantica. The staff is friendly and helpful and let you feel special. The food is stunningly fresh and nicely presented. I will recommend La Romantica always!!!!

Very friendly, helpfull and good value for money. Would recommend La Romantica. I like the idea of being able to take your own wine and pay corkage.

When we turned up with our baby, they made us as comfortable as possible, the service is excellent and friendly and the food always superbly tasty. The view over the parking lot is maybe not the best in the world, but gaze a little further and the view includes the magnificent Helderberg.

The location just by the Somerset West Mall is fine ...when you walk into the restaurant you think ...fine...the decor is inviting. Then things start to go down hill. The menu is so far ranging across Italian , French ...not to mention South African cuisine. This should have been a warning signal. The reality is that we such a wide... More

My wife had chicken schnitzel (of which I ate half while I waited for my pizza) which was pretty bland. My daughter enjoyed her hamburger a lot. My pizza was so terrible that I only ate three pieces of it. The base was premade and/or just did not taste like a pizza. The service was very slow even though the... More

What an unfriendly Manager. We where sitting next to the Kitchen, we ask kindly if the manager could close the door. No ways could he help. He drpoped on extra bottle in the dustbin and leaving the door open , He has no Clou about Service whatsoever. I can not believe that poor Standard is axepted by shareholders.????
