“Delicious Food, extensive menu, something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Excellent Menu, catering for all tastes. A bit pricey but then the qualify of food is exceptional. Attentive management and staff. A few of our favourties are gnocchi picante, scampi prawns with pasta (delicious), melanzane (the best in town), baby chicken. Check the specials board. Good sized portions and one is never disappointed. Definitely worth visiting.

“Food was tasty”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

We booked for an early dinner at 6pm, placed our order at 6:30 and only received our food at 7:40pm after we enquired as to where our food was. The service was extremely poor, the waitress had no clue as to what the specials were and had to ask another waiter what they were. Furthermore, we thought the fish we ordered (special) was ridiculously overpriced! The food was tasty enough but certainly not enough to entice another visit!!
On a last note, it is not wheelchair friendly - I had to help a rather distressed woman to the restroom after her husband could not get her chair up on the step, past the umbrella stands which were in the way! Worst of all, no one from the restaurant bothered to assist them!!!!

“Don't miss this restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Who could imagine to find an Italian restaurant i ZA which is better than most restaurants in Italy.
Very tasty food and friendly staff with exellent knowlegde about the food and the wine. If you are in the Durban area don't miss this place. Book a table as it is always crowded by the locals.

“Order widely and share!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Everything that we ate was excellent. There were eight of us and we ordered and shared until we couldn't eat any more. Don't miss out if in Umdloti!

“One of the best!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Ive had the privilege of dining at this great establishment since I was a little kid. I have to say La Casa Nostra has been consistently good throughout the years. They stick to what they do well and have never wavered from that path of good hearty Italian food.

Over the years they have got rather expensive for what is basically a family "trattoria" but I cant complain because every time I go there I have a fantastic meal. The service is tight and the ambiance is relaxed. Some recommendations, well Filetto Pizzaiolo, deep fried squid heads and the Melanzane parmigiana... All time classics from one the North Coasts best Italian Restaurant!

The only thing stopping me from giving it a 5 star rating is the pricing.

Ciao
