I'm so upset ! I came here intrigued by decent good reviews on Tripadvisor. Have been living here for 2 years, I'm excited to give this restaurant a try. Only to find out that the food is far from good as described on Tripadvisor. Staffs are NO WAY near friendly or welcoming. No smile. Not welcoming. I ordered something out of the menu. Classic Spaghetti Frutti di Mare with tomato based sauce. Any Italian restaurant almost has this kind of dish. How can La Casetta messed up a very simple dish. Spaghetti was very dry, tasted like salt water dipped in tomato paste. Octopus, calamari and clams were slimy and smelled very fishy, shrimp was the only one that is not bad, no mussels as described on the menu. I only ate 2 bites, it has triggered me to vomit. So I stopped eating and paid the bill. Seeing my full plate of pasta and I was ready to leave, staffs were not even bothered to ask if there's something wrong with my pasta, they simply don't care. I hope sincerely my 95% untouched plate that went back to the kitchen is already enough insult to whoever made the dish. Any full plate that goes back to the kitchen is an insult to any chef in the world, that's how gross the food is.

This “home style” Italian joint is a fixture in the Umalas/ Bumbak neighbourhood. Usually a good crowd of expats here most nights. Looks like a good business. Have never been blown away by the food. Pizza doesn’t do it for me. Bit bland and doughy. Pastas are a bit “meh” in my experience. Confirmed this the other night when looking for someplace to eat in the area. Typical good crowd. They must just have a good location. The stuffed pasta always seems a bit on the thick side. Seafood stuffed pasta just a bit fishy. The ravioli with spinach and ricotta was decent. The carbonara was just ok. Passable. I keep giving this place another try but always seem to come away a little underwhelmed. I think you can do better with all the Italian options on the island...
