You may as well flip to a page and point to a dish at random - it's a near guarantee that you'll still absolutely love what comes out of the kitchen! It's a bit odd to be sitting on the outskirts of Kruger National Park and tucking in to an amazing calzone, or a rich, delicious, authentic pasta dish -... More

Situated in Hoedspruit, close to Kruger National Park, one would not expect a true owner run Italian resturant. Don't pass by this one which serves home made pasta just as it should be......Italian style. The owners welcome you and treat you like friends . Amongst a variety of pasta dishes so are there pizza's,steak and salads amongst other great dishes.... More

Absolutely the BEST calzone I have ever had the pleasure of eating. Service faded toward the end but merely a blemish on an otherwise unforgettable meal.

Cala la Pasta is the best place in Hoedspruit for an Italian eating experience. Their pizzas are to die for. They also make the best Calzones. I recently had the chicken livers with a hot chilly sauce and it simply was excellent.

This small casual restaurant has an unsuspecting menu. The decor is non existent, but the good service, excellent, beer and wine menu AND THE BEST PIZZA since my trip to Italy more than makes up for It. Thin, light and crispy base only a master knows how to perfect, with a range of authentic toppings makes this a pizza lover's... More

Eaten here twice in past 2 days during a short stay in Hoedspruit. Exceptionally good pasta - tasted 3 dishes and each match the best Italian restaurants in SA. Service also great. Highly recommended.
