The food and service was fantastic. Perfect for a quick bite to eat as well as a leisurely dinner. Great family environment and the homemade nature of the meals makes this well worth it. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This Nelspruit family owned and managed restaurant in both Steiltes and Sonpark is a consistently good place to enjoy good food. Pizza, pasta and traditional Italian dishes well prepared.

great little Italian eatery - affording good menu with some authentic Italian choices, and also wide wine listing, and all hidden amongst the suburbs where I'd presume most tourists/non-locals would also miss, yet definitely worth seeking out and giving a visit!! Well worth a return!!

We went to the Trattoria every evening during our Nelspruit stay. We enjoyed the Italian food mainly but also steaks, Kingklip and dessert. Service was nice and friendly. Sundays closed. We love the South African prices. ;-)

The food was decent when it came but the staff were not concerned about any urgency. A little more speedy service would have been nice.
