I had the seafood pasta and it was amazing. Flavorsome, full of prawn, calamari and mussels in a delicious creamy sauce. Great service and pleasant atmosphere. If you get the opportunity it is well worth it.

Gosh dissapointed Not good value for money. Seafood platter for 1 very mediocre not worth the money ....who serves crab sticks on a platter I swapped them for prawns (small &overcooked) my husbands lamb chops overcooked and tiny. We don't have a problem with paying but we expect quality. I feel this restaurant is overpriced for what they promise. However... More

Some great Italian food to be had, whether it be pasta or pizza. The restaurant is well situated and the ambiance adds to the experience. Good value for a family dinner out.

I've been to a lot of restaurants and none of them were this terrible. I've never not finished a steak since I'm a meat lover, but I couldn't at the restaurant, neither could my husband finish his pasta and we had taken him out for his birthday. I a m certainly never going there again

Vast menu, happy, helpful, friendly staff, great value. The food was simply wonderful. One of those places I stumbled across by accident (hadn't read any reviews) but I know I'll go back when next in Joberg. Highly recommended.

Friends and family last minute gathering in Montecasino. The choice of food is mouthwatering from the description of the dish to its delivery. I loved my prawn meal with a spicy sauce and the mushroom entree is a meal itself. Little disappointing on the vegan gluten free choices but sure enough that they will step it up. Going back for...

Wow the lamb chops were just great. 4 chops along with mash and veggies. The starter dish was enough for a meal really. The South African Wines are not as good as the New Zealand wines though
