We wanted to try this place once before, but it was a Sunday and the restaurant was closed. Then we heard that the restaurant was somewhere else not at Sonpark. But, I can assure you that there is a Stefano's restaurant at Sonpark too. We were there during lunch and only one table was occupied. We ordered one pizza for... More

The service is really REALLY bad! We weren't greeted at the door when entering, we had to ask for a candle to get better lighting, we had to ask for the table to be adjusted in order for it to be stable, our food were served in 2 parts (we were only 2 people!) as they thought we were sharing...

This restaurant serves the best pizzas in Nelspruit. Other dishes are average to below average and especially if it is not standard Italian fare. Service is always slow and one often has difficulty communicating with the serving staff. They are simply not trained sufficiently.

The best in Nelspruit for real authentic Italian food! Pizza's are delicious and even their steaks are delicious! Unfortunately their service is not great and it is most probably due to the fact that their is no supervision. Overall, still worth while to try them out!

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.

My title says it all... the rest of the food is also very good-excellent in fact .. lots of flavour. . Ask for the pizza base with the chutney. . You will never look back. .. used to drive 40 km to buy pizzas from there... worth the drive!!!

We were driving in Nelspruit looking for a place to eat and found this little gem at the Steiltes Shopping Centre. The atmosphere was very nice, we really enjoyed our food but the food took a really long time to come out of the kitchen.
