We were welcomed by friendly, efficient staff and our Tuscan platter for two was delicious. The ambience is great and we walked around their beautiful gardens afterwards. Will definitely return.

We have tried for a while to obtain a reservation here but they do not appear so busy today although many tables are outside. We had for lunch pork belly, Kabeljou fish and the fillet on the bone. We recommend the fish and the fillet. For starters the butter soup was delicious and I also thoroughly enjoyed the salad. The... More

Almost everything about this place is exceptional...the service, the setting, the ambience. The food is not what it used to be, unfortunately inconsistent, and we found some dishes quite disappointing. The carpaccio starter was under flavored. It could have done with some good acid, salt and oil to enhance it, but the sardines were superb. The seafood pasta was average... More

My first time at Casalinga was in 2012 when I held my mom's 40th birthday lunch. The room i had booked was nothing short of stunning and private. The kids loved the lawn and where running around playing, very relaxing environment. We all had a good time. The cake i had ordered for my mom was heaven. The second time... More

This is a longstanding local favourite and a popular wedding venue. Great food, great ambiance. A bit out of town, so it is a destination restaurant but worth the trip.

We had our wedding here in July 2016. The staff were unbelievably polite and friendly and super attentive to our needs. Fantastic food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. If I had to find a negative it was that there was a 21st being hosted next to the chapel during our service, which was a bit noisy. Other than that, it was... More

We had a range of their goods and not one was less than very good. We even had a pork belly that has been previously rated poorly but today it was perfect and the crackling was heard being chewed from a distance. The deserts were over rich and nobody finished their portion. Rather share a portion. The outside area is... More

Casalinga is a class act but I had an unfortunate choice of pork belly. it is a course that should have CRACKLING!! Well, I had a 4cm strip that was excellent but the rest of the skin was rubber, unchewable, inedible. the pork itself was bland, pretty tasteless.

Excellent setting, beautiful tables and great food. It really was a special lunch with good friends. All the meals were served at once with no mistakes.
