We tried this restaurant for dinner during our stay in the Mövenpick Tala Bay. We tried the Chef's Special of the week (a steamed Sea Bass with butter lemon sauce and vegetables), the Ossobuco with Risotto, the Tuna Steak, and Tiramisu for desert. Everything tasted great and the service was great too. We will visit this restaurant again next time... More

Movenpick Tala Bay swarms with children, so couples may want to have a nice quiet dinner in a fancy restaurant ; that is what Casalingo offers. The setting is very classy, either inside or out, the staff extremely friendly and professional. We had a simple Italian meal of 3 pasta dishes and 2 bottles of mineral water. Nice, not spectacular,... More

This is the go to spot, for entertaining friends, or work colleagues. Service is always right, and you feel comfortable as soon as seated. the Chefs, are attentive and come to the table to make commendation and to check on your meal. Never, a bad seat, no pressure and always good food.

Great Italian restaurant at Tala Bay. We had the set menu which had two or maybe three options for each of the three courses. I wouldn't say it was just as mama would make it, rather it was a good rendition of Italian classics. I had the osso-bucco which was fantastic. The trio of pannecotta was a great way to... More

We had a wonderful meal at this Italian restaurant in the Movenpick Tala Bay Resort. The service was prompt and friendly. Both the appetizer and the main meal were delicious and the recommended bottle of wine was superb. Definitely a must when at this resort.

It's a quiet place with dimmed lights and soft music. The people speak perfect english and are so friendly! We got a free appetiser and bread in the table. The tuna and pasta we choose were really good! The tunaI would definitely recommend! European prices but definitely worth if compared to the other possibilities in Tala Bay!
