We were pleasantly surprised to have discovered this gem in the Pearl Walk shopping Centre in Umhlanga. This upmarket feel restaurant has an extensive menu providing true Italian foods and grills.
The staff was very friendly and attentive while the managers were also more than friendly to ensure we enjoyed our visit. We ordered a delicious lamb pizza which was topped with lamb, Danish feta & tzatziki, and a Parmesan crusted chicken served with a Gorgonzola side sauce (sauce is a choice of your own) and Zucchini shoestring fries.
Both dishes were lovely and quite filling. The chicken breasts were perfectly prepared and the Parmesan crust was divine.
We really enjoyed eating at this venue and regretted that we only discovered this restaurant on the last day of our holiday as there were numerous dishes which we would have liked to try.

Yesturday it was our first visit to the restaurant recommended by a fellow friend. The stuff out done themselves from the second we walked in . The food was out off the world and so was the services . I would like to thank in particular Sbo one of the waiters who gave us his full attention and made sure we left with a full tummy and a smile. Also I'd like to thank Ryalin the manager for always popping up to check up on our table .

I have visited this restaurant several times and the meal was always pleasant. I decided to book for New Years Day for my family.
Worst mistake ever.
To the Restaurants defense they had a board at the entrance stating that they were short staffed and that the waiting period may take some time.
We tried to order things like lasagna or spaghetti bolognaise etc only to be told they had no stock of mince and that they could not offer any of those meals.
WOW the name Casa Bella suggests Italian food which they could not deliver.
So we were down to steaks,salad and Pasta Fettuccine Alfredo.
TWO HOURS later the meals arrived
My Steak was cold and well done and I had ordered medium rare.
Chips were minimal and Luke warm
The T-Bone was rare but was ordered as well done.
The Chicken salads I heard were OK but not superb.
Only the Chicken peri - peri got a great review.

The waiters however were trying their very best but could really not cope.
I really did not enjoy New Years Day.
