Amazing! A must go!

We recently moved close to this restaurant and gave it a try, it was absolutely amazing. The owners are hands on, they are 2 Italian ladies, they welcome you at the door with hugs and kisses. Everything is done with love and it's as if you're at their house. The food was magic, the wine had a great... read more

The quality of the ingredients were great. The background music was very nice. The prices are not too expensive. However, the food was a little bland (not enough herbs and spices). Lots of personal interaction with the owner, which is not necessarily what we enjoy. The wine selection was average. Overall ok, but not great!

Fantastic restaurant. You are made welcome as you walk through the door. The food is magnificent - full of flavour and beautifully presented. We had Gnocchi to start - Yum and grilled fish with Pasta and salad for main - wonderful. Desert was deliciously indulgent. Treat yourself and visit there.

La Trinita has been going for, it seems like, ever and is and has remained, for at least 20 years, one of my favourites and one of the best restaurants in the Greater Johannesburg area. It is in Kyalami about 25 kms/15m from Sandton but is absolutely worth the trip. It is run by Tessa and La-La who greet all... More

As my husband and I are vegetarian and this can sometimes be a challenge in "meat loving" South Africa. At la Trinita ordering vegetarian is absolutely culinary bliss. Decided to choose this venue for our end of year office do. Everyone loved... More

This is an unpretentious Italian eatery run by amazingly friendly woman and they can cook. Wonderful starters, good pizza, lovely specials and all explained by this ball of energy, Lala.(Chef/patron) who has a passion for food. My only complaint is that they are so far from my home. A place to relax and enjoy a family meal.

What an experience. We had dinner with some friends on a Saturday night and it was fantastic. Lala, owner / hostess is so passionate about her restaurant and the food she makes. I would suggest you go there just to meet her, but not taking anything away from the food. Normally when you tell the manager you vegan you get... More
