Found 40 minutes outside of Sandton, Casalinga is a bit of a trek but a worthwhile one nevertheless. Once the private home of the De Lucas, the couple made the decision to open it up in the late 80s and haven’t looked back since. For 20 odd years this venue has been serving its roster of regulars, offering wonderful Italian dishes amid rustic furnishings. It has been a popular venue for weddings, and with an intimate, somewhat romantic setting it’s not hard to see why. The wine cellar offers a vast selection for those planning on getting merry – customers can even go on a tour, picking out bottles that match their particular occasion – while the expansive gardens provide the perfect setting for an after-dinner smooch under the stars.
