“Excellent food”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

The experience was almost excellent but the service became very slow, to the extent that one had to sit with an empty glass for long times. The food was really fantastic and it was clear that one had to book. We stumbled on it when we were driving about in the area.

“Average Italian restaurant, not impressed”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The atmosphere is really nice, the restaurant is pretty decorated. The service was not good at all. The owners were friendly, but the waitresses looked so unhappy and behaved themselves like they were doing a favour. Although it wasn't a weekend and there were not a lot of people. We asked 3 different waitresses for additional glasses and it took them half an hour to bring them. The food was average and took too long. They didn't even bring us oil and vinegar.

“Besta Pizza.”
Reviewed 26 December 2012

When in Nelspruit I always visit this friendly restaurant. It offers casual dining at a reasonably price in a friendly atmosphere situated between a car park and a supermarket.

The garlic bread cannot be bettered. Freshly made in a wood oven which is a replica of the Coliseum in Rome. Follow this with Pizza Sicilianna. I always think that I will never finish it. I always do! I suspect that the secret is in the preparation of the dough and the use of the best ingredients. You will not find better in Rome.

Do enjoy a couple of drinks and relax. The service is slow; so enjoy the company and the people watching.

We expected a real Stefano experience with yummy portugese chicke and the whole trip. Stefano came to introduce himself to us with his sexy Italian accent, suggested what we eat and then left. The food was below average and we wont go back there. A half an hour later hes was speaking pure Afrikaans to some guests/friends of his. We just about fell off our chairs. No for us.
