“Location location location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

A bit out of town and not so easy to find if you are an out of towner but when you get there the views of Johannesburg are out of this world. The atmosphere and decor is very good.The food is very good and the service is good if there is no function there. I have had Sunday lunch, business ,lunchs and family dinners as well as attending a wedding.

“One of the better Italian spots in Johannesburg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Really solid Italian experience and food. Waiters are very jacked and attend to you in a professional yet "Italian" manner. I would highly recommend for out of towners looking for a good evening out.

“Birthday celebration”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Awesome food, the ambiance was overwhelming, the surroundings were peaceful and tranquil. Definitely recommend it - but pricey if its not a special occasion.

“A very average restaurant in a lovely location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

Disorganised on arrival. Service was adequate but food was formulaic, unimaginative, bland and forgettable. Nice location for a walk around - but Joburg has plenty of restaurants that eclipse Casalinga in terms of food quality and value for money. Would not recommend this restaurant.

“Top Italiean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The restaurant is in family hands. We know it since 1991 and still are fequent guests. Excellent Italien food, good wine and a wonderful ambiente! Book for dinner.
Nice garden for short walks, bring the family!
