We were visiting Mpumalanga in May and our friends treated us to a meal at Stefano's. (Stefano's used to be in White River apparently). The focaccia needed a lot more work - it was dry and tasteless and despite ordering at least 4 lots, our table of 6 abandoned it a long time before our main courses arrived. It definitely didn't melt in one's mouth like it should have. The children had pizza and I was relieved that I hadn't been tempted to have one because they looked anaemic. Fillings were not generous by any means. The pasta dishes our friends ordered also lacked oomph from what I could see without being impolite. My husband and I stupidly ordered lasagne - what a giant rookie error. The lasagne was "well travelled" - it had been to Italy and back and had severe jetlag. It screamed - old stock, re-heat, re-heat. Whatever you do at Stefano's - please save yourself and do NOT eat their lasagne. We idly wondered how old it was. No one was interested as to why we didn't finish this disgusting concoction because they probably knew!!! We gave it the worst ever lasagne rating of 1/10. Not many establishments are able to beat this I'm sure. I should have ordered the prawn, cherry tomato, linguine pasta with chilli but the thought of rich marscapone with it sounded too much. Dessert - berry pannacotta definitely didn't disappoint so dues are do apply here - unless of course someone else made it???? We were pleasantly surprised that the cappuccinos we were served were also delicious. Another reviewer talks about hospitality from the staff - have to say that we never encountered any
