Perhaps it is a new concept. Something like a salad or a recipe just put on a white and no taste pasta. This look like a pizza but doesn't. Two third of the pasta is not eaten because of no interest. It was for us a for people there around us...

What an unexpected find. As tourists driving the area not knowing what's good and what's hip, we chanced it by walking in to an unassuming looking joint from the outside. Enough South African steak houses... We needed pizza and salad.

The vibe was great, staff ever so friendly and service and food delivery prompt.

Try the springbok carpaccio pizza with well lots of dressings and a few key toppings to boot.

Loved it loved it !
2 very happy Aussies. We will be back .

My husband and I went here after we realized we needed reservations in the winter season in Cape Town. We weren't sure what to expect and we loved it.

Good
- Prices: We paid 65 rand for a beat and arugula and goat cheese salad and somewhere between 65 and 89 rand for personal pizzas
- Ambiance: it was really hip and young and just a tiny bit noisy
- Pizza selection: they have 54 different types of pizzas and only four are what I would consider normal pizzas the rest are very gourmet and unique

The service was as expected and a little bit better than some other places we've been in Cape Town this week.
Corkage fee is R40.

We would definitely go back.

The name made us expect to find no more than a fast food joint, although I find it refreshing to find a Italian restaurant that is not called Roma or Madonna, Big Route is so much more.

In short we had great wine, friendly and helpful service, superb pizza, and the bad coffee (problems with the machine) was scratched from the bill without any hesitation before a new espresso was served as well. Prices are maybe a tad high for a pizza in CT, but you definitely get what you pay for.
