“Great home cooked meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

Hubby and I are here at least once a week. Food is consistently good. Kids love it, when they join us. Lovely restaurant. Great staff. Wonderful owners. Always recommend it to our friends. Home away from home.

“Consistent and great value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Food is consistently good, service is impressive and value is great. Unpretentious and down to earth. Our party consisted of two large tables. They managed the service efficiently and competently. Staff friendly and helpful A restaurant you can always count on to deliver wholesome and tasty food.

“Mama cooking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2013 via mobile

Nothing fancy just very good tasty meal love the tomato flavours never to rich but flavourful. Dishes can be mixed to your liking. Staff friendly though sometimes a little slow.

“Great Italian eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

On a recent visit to South Africa went to Er Buco for Sunday lunch. Have been before and found the food first class. Love the Liver & Onions. Others in our party had various types of Pasta which was found to be extremely good. The service is very good and friendly. Would have no hesitation in recommending this Italian eatery
