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.

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.

A nice Italian restaurant in the sonpark, a nice community shopping area in Nespruit. We were for the nice little balcony to have cappuccino and Coke float. Recommended for a short break from your shopping spree. Nice and friendly staff indeed.

We both had only pastas, but they were good. Service friendly. Although we would have liked to see the (Italian) owner, the manageress of the night was the regular stand in, she clearly likes that job and does it well.
