We were in Cape Town for the rugby, arriving late evening this was the nearest restaurant to our hotel. It's very basic Italian, pizza and pasta with a few other dishes. It's ok, service was relatively good at a very busy time. Wine not expensive...More

The restaurant was opened in 1971 and still is run by the same Italian family. Fantastic experience, spacious place, home alike atmosphere. Food is perfect, portions are large and served very fast. Friendly and well trained staff. Highly recommended

Loved the food, went back a second time because they took such good care of us. They even made a new kind of pizza, just for me. The desserts are divine. Daniel, the waiter, was delightful and funny. Great place to visit.

Sometimes, the best things in life are simple. Started with salad and focaccia. Then one of the best raviolis I have tasted, and a lamb knuckle with beans and pasta that evoked all sorts of emotions. Finally, semifreddo that gets served in heaven for dessert....More

We love coming here. We feel like part of the family. The food can be a bit pricey. But definitely worth every cent! Always delivered with a personal touch.
