Groves & Vineyards

It’s almost time for the main course, served with a glass or two: the ninth annual Groves & Vineyards Festival is happening this month at Casalinga Ristorante Italiano.
tickets are selling fast so now’s the time to get yours - before they’re all sipped and munched away. Groves & Vineyards will once again be hosted by Casalinga Ristorante Italiano – and the excitement is mounting!

Where better to hold a festival celebrating olives, grapes and all the great things that can be made from them, than a place where they are lovingly used every day to create authentic Italian cuisine? On the weekend of May 27th and 28th, the Casalinga gardens will be transformed into a Mediterranean-style market place where you can eat, drink and enjoy SA’s finest musical acts.

If life is a series of small but significant pleasures, then you won’t want to miss out on this one!

"Nella botte piccola, c’è il vino buono / Good things come in small packages"


Casalinga has always been a place where people want to stay longer, and now you can. The La Casa country cottages are hidden away in our beautiful garden, and let you enjoy a Casalinga experience that doesn’t end with dessert.

La Casa is secluded, tranquil and serene – but also within easy reach of the bush and city attractions of The Cradle of Humankind and northern Jo’burg, as well as Lanseria Airport.

Whether it’s romance or business that brings you to La Casa, you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet of your surroundings and appreciate all the creature comforts on offer, from unlimited Wi-Fi to a real fireplace.

Welcome to La Casa. Welcome home.


At Casalinga, our mission is to create authentic, contemporary Italian cuisine in a rustic rural setting, and to bring people together to celebrate family, friendship and flavourful food.


A world in which we all slow down a little and take the time to reconnect with the people who mean the most to us. Preferably around the table while enjoying good food and a glass of wine, while creating lifelong memories of special occasions.
