Cala la Pasta is your traditional Italian restaurant. The owners are amazing people, Luca and Erica - so welcoming and friendly. Definitely the best pizza and pasta in town! Great wine variety as well. Very romantic setting.

You may as well flip to a page and point to a dish at random - it's a near guarantee that you'll still absolutely love what comes out of the kitchen! It's a bit odd to be sitting on the outskirts of Kruger National Park...More
