We stayed and dined in La Sosta on our recent trip to South Africa and it was truly the finest dining experience we had .Gianni is a perfect host and Christina produces sumptuous food from the finest ingredients as Gianni explained to us over a lovely breakfast the following morning,we cant wait to go back.

“stupendo”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We had a stop over in la Sosta on our way from Cape Town to Plettenberg Bay. We stayed in one of the three room that form part of la Sosta. The room are en suite and not very big but tastefully furnished and very convenient for the modest rates that are charged.
Our dinner came as a great surprise. The restaurant is renovated in a very sophisticated way. The food prepared by Cristina - originally from Milan - is a fusion of tradtional Italian and nouvelle cuisine. We highly appreciated the homemade ravioli with norwegian salmon.
Great place not to miss when staying in Swellendam.

“Family E from Cape Town”
Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Deserves all the recommendations and accolades possible.
Who would expect this high level of cuisine in such a small town?!
We were bowled over firstly by the food: the textures, the delicacy of the tastes created for ravioli and gnocchi dishes.
For a family who loves good food, this evening was thoroughly satisfyingly tummy rubbing good.
Secondly, hats off to Gianni who is the perfect host and perfect foil to his wife cooking in the kitchen.
This couple deserves all the rave reviews.
We will be back!

“A dining experience not to be missed”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The sleek interior, beautifully presented tastefully prepared food, excellent wines paired with the Italian flair of Gianni as front of house makes this restaurant a special place. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here. A definite must for a special occasion.
