Casalinga gets one star and that's for the setting. Everything else, I'm sorry to say, was fantastically disappointing.

This restaurant has a lovely relaxed atmosphere, with rolling gardens. Service is friendly and sharp. Sunday lunch is always packed to the brim, even then the service is quick. Good traditional yet modern Italian food.

We had a Sunday lunch with family at Casalinga. First the positives: the venue is beautiful, worth the drive out to Muldersdrift, and there are many ways to keep kids entertained. The Sunday menu is a set menu (R340 per person as at August 2017)...More
