“Great food - Happy relaxed Place!”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

One of the best scaloppini my partner has ever had. And he has had a few! We found the total experience outstanding and certainly the best meal we had on our 2 week holiday in south Africa

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

We came here with four people just before opening time. Without reservation we could eat here at this time (18:00) (but reservations are recommended because they were fully booked!) Amazing dinner! specials were excellent! salads with fresh products(avocado/tomato buffalo mozarella etc) delicious prepared calamari, pasta and super tasty main course meat fiorentine! Also the dessert and coffee were great! and our servant! What a friendly girl!

“Exquisite”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

If you want to have the quintessential Italian experience this is the restaurant you don't want to miss. There is not a dish on the menu that is not worth trying and with the hosts there to make it even more unforgettable.

“Not as good as Mastrantonio in Jo'burg”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

We have been to this restaurant 3 times, on this visit we went once for dinner. The food was not great, it was too busy and the service although friendly was too slow. The room is okay and maybe it is for younger less fussy diners who like the noise and the vibe. We will probably go again as it was not an unpleasant experience and not every hit can be a coconut.
