I absolutely love coming to Postachino! The pizzas are delicious and large! The staff are so attentive and the owners are always around and hands on! The ambience is a Cosy typical Italian family run restaurant. One of my favorite restaurants in Cape Town for a relaxed good good night out!

Very good service. Pizza was a big and fresh ingredients, very thin. Very good but nothing special Grilled calamari well seasoned and good. I had the Italian salad with it which was a bit bland. Overall very good.

My family and I happened upon Posticino for Sunday lunch and were very impressed by the warm welcome. The food was great too. The focaccia was lovely and the pasta dishes tasty. We will definitely be back!

On a good day sit on the upstairs decking and get a great view across Hout Baai. on a cooler day sit inside with the pizza oven providing plenty of warmth. Difficult access for disabled as you need to go upstairs.

An Italian restaurant run by real Italians- that's what I like to see. Good vibes full to the brim with happy diners all enjoying their delicious Italian food. One of the owners, Matteo went out of his way to welcome us and enquire where we were from . Will definitely go back when next in the area
