“Fabulisimo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

The best home-made pasta - try the Ricotta & Spinach Ravioli - preservative free and fresh - and organic veggies when available. Real Italian cuisine by a trained Italian chef - just wonderful - and they use purified water for all beverages and pastas. The hosts, Luca and Erika and their lovely staff are gracious, accommodating and warm.

“Italy In Africa!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2013

From the moment you walk up the steps onto the deck on Cala La Pasta, you feel like you've been transported to a little trattoria in Italy. Erika and Luca (Hands on owners) and Marlene (Manager) as well as the wonderful waitrons are charming hosts that make you feel at home immediately!! The deck area is lit up with beautiful fairy lights which make for a cosy and relaxed atmosphere..and then there's the food!! Pizzas are superb (The authentic Calzone which is a folded pizza is my absolute favourite)...and in my personal opinion, the best fillet in Hoedspruit. No-one should go through Hoedspruit without stopping at Cala La Pasta

“Italy in The Bush!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

A little peice of Italy in the bushveld of Limpopo. Delicious food - friendly staff. The owners, Lucca and Erika make it a point to come to your table ensuring that everything is to your satisfaction. It's a definite must when visiting Hoedspruit.
