Pasta is world class. Piccanto. Mince with cream and chilli. The first time I have ever had a meal when the quantities of the ingredients are exactly right that they compliment each other. The most amazing dish I've tasted in a long time.

Will DEFINITELY be returning.

Easily one of the best, if not the best Italian in South Africa.
Managed by Alessandro like a Swiss clockwork, offering consistency every single time.

My wife loves the pasta (pesto, aglio olio, piccanti), my favorite is the baby chicken (takes 40 minutes, order it straight away with the drinks.) Kids are mad about the Pizza.

It is busy all year around, buttends to get extra busy during the "Touristy" season.

Used to frequent this restaurant for many years with my late mother. Well managed by Allessandro and his team, this restaurant is bursting with energy, always great service and informal. No bookings taken here and the food is simply Italian brilliance.

For ages my meal consisted of a Quail for starters, the Langoustines are the finest in SA, Klein Constantia Sauvignon Blanc, Illy coffee and a Grappa.

Miss this place.....HUGE! Albeit pricey nowadays.

Having never been to Umdloti before, we found this little place pretty good. A welcome from people who have clearly been around for some time and may well be family, which extended to being charming and tolerant with grandchildren.

The food was standard Italian, with nothing to complain about and opportunities for praise.. The pleasant service continued and we were not rushed to the door, although the place was clearly busy. Long may it thrive!

Been coming to Casa Nostra for many years and it has always had such a very comfortable atmosphere, very tasty food and great service. The prices are maybe a little higher than other Italian restaurants but the quality deserves it. The staff have mainly been there for a while and they are always very welcoming and capable. Great restaurant,
