I don't know why I didn't put this on TripAdvisor earlier, to warn people about this specific La Romantica...we went there on a Sunday evening for the pizza special, just to be called back from our car after we ate, because we didn't pay the right amount. It was really quiet that evening and I left the money on the... More

Went there on Sunday 4th of May for a family lunch, what a disappointment. Poor service, poor food, whole restaurant, bar area and toilets area dirty, cutlery dirty, not at all La Romantica standards. Sorry to say but we wil not be back.

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.

Here is all ok. The food, the atmosphere and the prices. The ribs are some of the best in town. Only the approach is not that nice since so many shops around have closed.

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
