The challenge is to find it but, once get there, you'll be rewarded and allowed to indulge yourself during the lunch, with a nice home made and tasty Italian cuisine.

We always visit Al Dente when we are in Cape Town. The pasta is delicious and the dessert is divine. I would recommend the parmigiana egg plant, chicken salad on the starters, linguine with prawns for mains and the cannoncini or profiteroles for dessert.

The best Melanzane Parmigiana ever! We eat here often and our clients and business associates love it. Paola's delicious, fresh, homemade sauces and classic Italian menu, served by her lovely daughter, Erica, keep us coming back for more.

You can see that the place is family managed by the care for the food and overall by the cleansing of the kitchen. All good, from the starter to the dessert
