We booked for an early dinner at 6pm, placed our order at 6:30 and only received our food at 7:40pm after we enquired as to where our food was. The service was extremely poor, the waitress had no clue as to what the specials were and had to ask another waiter what they were. Furthermore, we thought the fish we ordered (special) was ridiculously overpriced! The food was tasty enough but certainly not enough to entice another visit!!
On a last note, it is not wheelchair friendly - I had to help a rather distressed woman to the restroom after her husband could not get her chair up on the step, past the umbrella stands which were in the way! Worst of all, no one from the restaurant bothered to assist them!!!!

Who could imagine to find an Italian restaurant i ZA which is better than most restaurants in Italy.
Very tasty food and friendly staff with exellent knowlegde about the food and the wine. If you are in the Durban area don't miss this place. Book a table as it is always crowded by the locals.

Everything that we ate was excellent. There were eight of us and we ordered and shared until we couldn't eat any more. Don't miss out if in Umdloti!

Pasta is world class. Piccanto. Mince with cream and chilli. The first time I have ever had a meal when the quantities of the ingredients are exactly right that they compliment each other. The most amazing dish I've tasted in a long time.

Will DEFINITELY be returning.

Easily one of the best, if not the best Italian in South Africa.
Managed by Alessandro like a Swiss clockwork, offering consistency every single time.

My wife loves the pasta (pesto, aglio olio, piccanti), my favorite is the baby chicken (takes 40 minutes, order it straight away with the drinks.) Kids are mad about the Pizza.

It is busy all year around, buttends to get extra busy during the "Touristy" season.
