I honesty have my favorite meals here, the warm atmosphere and epic service(by Gumede and crew) is only topped by the phenomenal homely food. The combination makes it my number 1 restaurant in the country, you can't come to natal without coming past here. 10 out of 5 rating

My wife and were in the area and called the rest at about 11:40 to see if they were open for lunch, we arrived at the rest 5 min later after they confirmed that they were open.

The restaurant is a bit hidden and parking is a mission, but the pizza is worth the trouble. My friends and I all had pizzas and we all loved the food so much, even the people that usually don't eat a lot finished their meals. The wine and some other beverages does seem a bit overpriced, but in line with... More

A friendly welcome, excellent service, caters well for children. Good selection of dishes with daily specials. Good ambience and delicious food, wine not expensive. They have maintained a high standard over many years and I would recommend a visit, you won't be disappointed.

It hungry and feel like a pizza you are at the right place. Service is good while the atmosphere can be described as being lacking. Outsiders take second place to locals - thus try Tasca on the beach instead.

A special birthday celebrated at La Casa Nostra in Umhloti on the North Coast in Durban. This is a real family orientated restaurant. We were a party of 10 people ranging in age from 2 years to 76 years. The restuarant had a happy, jovial atmosphere and everyone had a happy time. We ordered a variety of dishes that were... More

Delicious authentic Italian cusine. Just like mama makes...Sit outside if weather permits. You can order anything from the menu and it will be delicious but I suggest ordering from the specials of the day.
