Greeted lovingly from the front house to the attention delivered at your table personally by the Chef! Her expressive personality shows you how passionate she is about her food. All the talk did not disappoint with the taste of every meal. An unassuming restaurant with an absolute warm homely feel is certainly a must do for all locals. Their sweet... More

As you walk in the door, you already feel welcome. The service and attention to detail from the owners is remarkable as is the quality of the food. Superb pasta, veal, sauces, veg, all cooked with passion. In total, an absolute must for anyone who appreciates great Italian cuisine.

What a delight, first time visit. Hostess is amazing and extremely hospitable. Her and her Mamma runs this well oiled "olive oil" family restaurant. True Italian decor even more genuine is the food. Alfredo at its best. Parma ham pizza with fresh basil a song in your mouth. Go see for yourself, you will not be DISAPPOINTED

Four of us visited La Trinata Italian restaurant in Kyalami on Saturday for the first time. We were met by the owner, Chef Lala, a vivacious bubbling Italian woman who was really passionate about her food. She joined us at our table and proceeded to describe most of her dishes and elaborated in detail how she cooked each dish. We... More

I am a somewhat erratic regular at this surprisingly good little Italian restaurant, located in a hidden-away section of a small semi-industrial park,up some steel stairs. It's very simple and unpretentious, and the plastic tablecloths and decor won't win any prizes, but the difference here is in the truly wonderful, really handmade Italian food, enthusiastically presented by Lala, who makes...

Speak to Lala about what is on offer - she will come to the table and take your order. She can often vary options slightly (within reason). The food is superb. It really is the best Italian food on offer. Service is good and Lala is genuinely interested in making sure you order the food you want and that the... More
