One of us had a brilliant pizza. i can't remember what else we had but it was all fantastic. Ambience is only ok. The restaurant is a quite... More

Incredible pizza. Was a great vibe as well, you can feel the ocean air and it's a very "euro" feel which I love. Good food and servers, I also like that it's not too loud where we were seated so we could hear all 14 people at the table. Great experience.

Totally overrated restaurant. If I would be generous 6 of 10 would be the maximum just because if you're used to international pricing SouthAfrica is cheap. Mamas Bolognese Sauce average. Service average. Ambience average. Fillet Steak average... Greek Salad couldn't save it. Long wait in between courses. Very limited choice of wine by the glass. Will most likely not return.

Despite being a small dining hall the service and food was awesome. Average meal costs around R100 per plate. We had pizza and pasta and all 3 dishes were very tasty and a good helping. We would definitely go back.

This is an authentic and long-standing Italian Restaurant, with a cosy, intimate atmosphere, good service and great food at reasonable prices, it even has a good wine list to choose from......
