“Good Italian food in the middle of no-where”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

We were surprised to have a good italian restaurant in this area. The manager of Days At Sea Lodge sent us there. It was a lovely lunch on the terrace with a view. The food is very good and the pasta was perfect.

“A gem on the South Coast!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Had the pleasure of entertaining a group of people at an authentic Italian eatery serving traditional Tuscan cuisine.Service was personal handled by chef and the owner.Restaurant is located on a farm with beautiful views over Indian Ocean and the Mpejati River Reserve.The fresh mussel soup was the best I have tasted.Recommended for a lovely laid back lunch.

“Very good Ragout! Bravo.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Nice and casual Trattoria with good quality food. The manager of the Days At Sea Beach Lodge recommended the Casa Toscana. We had a perfect pasta with a wonderful ragout and a very good rabbit. It was opposite the main road and not far from our Lodge.So we could enjoy our wine without road block....

“Beautiful food, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2012

We had lunch at Casa Toscana and loved the place. Authentic Italian food at a great location with a beautiful view. Antipasti as a starter to share and some lovely pasta's - all excellently prepared. Homemade Gnocchi with duck ragout was a daily special was great and the Penne arabiata was refined with a nice spicey flavour but not overdone. Service was friendly and professional. We had a really good time at Casa Toscana.

“Very charming restaurant with wonderful hosts and top food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

It could be in Toscana but it is a cosy italian restaurant in the middle of a banana farm in South Africa! When the owners Marisa and Mario welcome you, one knows it is going to be a good evening. The food is really true italian. They make wonderful pasta pesto and the best ragu!
If you go for lunch on a sunny day, try to book a table outside on the terrace with a stunning ocean view, order a bottle of red and just relax.
