Tonight Casalinga was perfect. The service, the food, the wine....this is the best dining experience I have had in years...and I've had a few. I'm here in SA for only another 2 weeks...but I shall return

Have been to Casalinga four times and it has never ever disappointed. The staff are well trained and always polite and friendly. The food standard is out of this world and would stand against any well known British chef's restaurant in SA ! Wine selection is interesting. Look forward to going again on our next SA visit.

After a few people and web sites recommended this restaurant my husband and I decided to have dinner here for our anniversary. The setting is beautiful, we had great service and the feel is romantic. He had the fillet on bone special which was excellent. I had prawns which was not the best but still tasty. The great surprise was... More

We attended a friend's wedding at the beautiful little Chapel. The grounds are just great for taking photos while guests sit under the trees in the shade. The reception was tastefully done and the food great. We did not have time to explore the grounds, gardens nor walk in the forest and we will definitely return for that.

Had the worst Sunday lunch here, the setting is beautiful and that's where it stops. The service is so bad. After ordering starters you get your food within 1 minute. It is tasteless, the worst gnocchi I have had. Tasted like 1 minute packet sauce. The lamb shank had no taste and the rice / risotto is so overdone it's... More

Casalinga came recommended and it definitely did not disappoint. We went on a Sunday where there was a set menu. The service from the moment we walked in to the moment we left was exemplary. The food was delicious and very aesthetically presented. Highlight of the meal: a meringue dessert that was almost lighter than air. Perfect afternoon
