On Sunday 10 July 2016 the three of us lunched at this restaurant. We returned to our lodgings in Southbroom and agreed there that we had to confirm to ourselves that we had not been subjected to a hallucinogenc drug experiment or the subjects of mass hypnotism. So we lunched there again the very next day, Monday 11 July 2016.... More

One of the best restaurants on the Natal South Coast. Serves delicious Italian food with a very affordable wine list. Staff friendly and professional. Beautifully sea view from the restaurant.

We have seen all the good review from Casa Toscana and decided that we must have something to eat there. We stay in Margate and drive to Trafalgar on Tuesday. The first thing is that we the place is according to Tripadvisor is wrong there is only a street we the place is suppose to be. Never the less after... More

Thank you for taking so much time to explain your experience at Casa Toscana. Unfortunately I did not understand clearly why you did not find us the first time, we have two big boards with the name of the restaurant just off the main road quite visible especially during the day. I am really sorry that you didn't take the... More

After hearing many good reports about Casa Toscana we decided to try it out. This venue has a very pleasant layout and we were welcomed efficiently by the staff and Manager (Owner?), given a choice of tables and quickly presented with the menus and some bread and a bowl of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. My hopes started falling when... More

Hidden away on a farm with views of the sea in the distance, this restaurant can really do a good Italian meal. Service was friendly and food came out fast. The T-bone steak was worth another visit and everyone enjoyed the food.

Casa Toscana's artichoke and marrow tortino served with grilled prawns and a butternut puree, must be one of the best starters I have eaten anywhere! The flourless quiche was rich, but not overly so, and every bite was heavenly. Also try their starter of crispy calamari heads, their main of prawn and spinach stuffed calamari tubes in a superb tomato... More

Last year we ate at Casa Toscana for the first time - everything was utterly delicious. We reminisced about the squid ink pasta the whole year! This year the food was at least as good, with the mushroom and truffle pasta particularly delicious and memorable. Welcoming atmosphere and friendly but unobtrusive service. Easily one of the best restaurants in South... More

Friday the 22nd. Great Bresaola - fantastic flavours and a great olive oil in top. Bruschetta Classico - nice and crispy and garlicky. Excellent seafood spaghetti - cooked perfectly. Good service and attention by the hosts. Did not expect to find such excellent Italian cuisine in Trafalgar - and I have done a few restaurant reviews in my time!

Thank expectant customer
