“Great little eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2014 via mobile

If you want somewhere to eat in Camps Bay I would recommend this Italian restaurant just off the seafront. Not your usual Italian as the owners are Sicilian so there is that wonderful influence of flavours from Italy and Arabic countries. The food was delicious the service a little slow so allow a little time we didn't mind as it allowed time to savor what you had just eaten I would go back again.

“Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 January 2014

This restaurant is the gem of Camps Bay. My husband and I stayed at the Fairways on the Bay recently with our one-year old son. We ate EVERY. SINGLE. MEAL. at Il Cappero and our only regret is that we do not live in Cape Town to go back!!!!! Here is why we loved this place:

1. The food. It is just beyond delicious - fresh, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. You will not go wrong with any choice on the menu. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed every meal.

2. The service. Everyone who works in this restaurant is incredibly nice. That is not often the case when you show up to dinner with a small child, so we were grateful to for the flexibility (sure, he can sit in his stroller) and kindness (the owner almost always took time to chat with us and the waitstaff did everything they could to help keep our son happy - more breadsticks? sure!) They also delivered food to our room when our son wasn't feeling well.

3. The location. Unlike many other restaurants in Camps Bay, Il Cappero is located just around the corner from the main strip. It has a quiet and peaceful atmosphere; yet you are minutes from all the nightlife and other hotels.

4. The view. Sitting on the patio, enjoying a crisp glass of white wine with dinner while watching the sun set over the ocean was blissful. And you can't beat breakfast outside, in the sunshine or under the shade of fruit trees, listening to the ocean waves crashing on to the beach.

5. The prices. Honestly, we were shocked at how inexpensive this restaurant is when you consider #1-4 above! For the quality of the food and the ambiance, you are truly getting a bargain when you eat at Il Cappero.

“Real Home Family Cooking”

Wonderful experience, from front of house, Aldo, to his wife's Sicilian influenced cooking, everything was better than hoped for from such a small establishment. We will return

“Delicious Italian Food at Camps Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

During a 7 days stay at Camps Bay, we came here five times to enjoy the absolutely delicious italian food! The place is nice located, away from the main street. The owner was treating us with very special attention from the beginning. His wife is doing a fabulous job in the small kitchen. It is really a place I look forward to go back
