We stayed here at the B&B as part of a tour of the Western Cape recently. We were so pleased that Gianni had the foresight to book us into the restaurant for the first evening's stay just in case we wanted to eat there,but no pressure. We had no idea that such a superb restaurant was part of the premises,and have no hesitation in recommending the cuisine,the wine list,and the ambience.
Gianni and his staff were very attentive and left us with a memorable stay overall. The B&B was great too !
Thank you Cristina and Gianni !

This is a must visit! One of the small secrets in the Cape. If you are in Swellendam or on tour through it - STOP!!! Only one problem... you have to book in advance;-) Italien cuisine at it's best and with a very personal twist.

We arrived in Swellendam on a wet winter evening and were fortunate that La Sosta was highly recommended by our host. Gianni was very happy to talk about the dishes we chose and the combinations of flavours were well harmonised. One of the best memories of our holiday in ZA.

We had very good food all holiday but this cuisine which is recognizably Italian with a 'twist' of South Africa tops the list! We understand it is usually booked up months in advance. We were lucky to be 'just' late in the season and our B+B managed to book us in.

My partner came down to Swellendam, to check out if it is all true. And not only was La Sosta sublime, but the owners were just plain fun. To hear Gianni speak of life in Italy, La Dolce Vita, I wondered why he left. Well to follow his passion, that's why. Thanks to Christiana we had the tasting menu and it was just wonderful. And I want to thank the guys at Augusta de Mist for arranging this for us. What an ideal town. Reminds me of what Franschhoek used to be like before the bridge opened (other South Africans will know what I mean!).
