2nd time we have been and just loved it - such a buzzing atmosphere and the pasta dishes are delish, as are the veal meatballs! Great wine too. Enjoyed both of our visits very much.

Family owned Italian resturant in the heart of Cape Town.

We visited in a Tuesday night, and good job we booked, because by 8:30 it was full! Great atmosphere, great service, and proper Italian food.

Good genuine Italian food served with a smile. Especially impressed by the tiramisu they brought out for my birthday :-)

Il Leone Mastrantonio clearly feels like a high-end Italian restaurant in an old home, because it was an old home at one time - and that feeling of being in a town villa still remains. The menu and wine lists are very varied; the appetizers are all good choices, and are the perfect amount of food so it doesn't jeopardize dinner but doesn't also feel like two springs and a bean either. The service is excellent, and you never feel rushed or pressured to finish. A great idea for a dinner among friends, a romantic night out, or just a place to get good Italian fare.

Service is very efficient and friendly. Menu doesn't change, year in, year out but always really good. Same with wine list.
