Food and service is excellent. Ingredients all fresh and complimentary focaccia bread inviting and well received. Waiters are helpful and suggest specials. If you enjoy sangria, its a must! Pizza and pasta both tasty.

Thanks for the review! We are glad you enjoyed your Pasta so much. Our wine on the glass is measured to 185ml and we try keep high quality for our Wine by the glass so it can be slightly pricier then other similar establishments. More

What a brilliant restaurant in a sleepy town near the sea. 3 of us went for a Sunday lunch. The food was excellent. Craft beer is on tap and the service is superb. The pizza was light and full of flavour. The pasta fresh and authentic. The salad was crisp and perfect in size. A little pricey but we felt... More

LA Casa Nostra, never lets us down, and while it does not have the sea views and menu choices of it's more illustrious sister restaurant Bel Punto, it offers a more casual and relaxed experience.An excellent mid priced family restaurant with a distinctly Italian flavour.Our party of four all enjoyed their meal. Our orders ranged from Quail,to pasta, to Pizza,... More

Thanks for the great review! We are glad you enjoyed your time with us and the relaxed, authentic Italian feel. We are glad you enjoyed every one of your meals. Unfortunately parking can be a bit of a problem, A good option to try on the weekend is either the letting agency across the street or just down the road... More

Arrived in Umdloti the Friday and was looking for a nice place to eat and relax. Place was full but could accommodate us. You need to book in advance. We sat on the stoep that was closed up but was still cold. Their fillet was excellent, superbly done! Service was very good!

We have been to La Casa Nostra every time we visit Umdloti for a seaside holiday. Most recently we had dinner there during our honeymoon. Not only were we treated like royalty by the staff, and specifically our waiter SBoniso, it was also one of the best meals we have ever had. Outstanding service, absolutely delicious Italian food and a... More
