“Not happy”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

The evening started great, nice establishment, good atmosphere, great starter. Both of us had the bruscetta and we both liked it very much. But for the main course, the staff member who was in charge of the pizza's apparently was a hurry to end his day. Almost the entire top of my calzone was black on the outside and it was covered with tomato sauce. I've never had a calzone with tomato sauce on top so to me it felt like the staff member was trying to hide his mistake. The inside of the calzone wasn't as warm as it normally should be.
My girlfriends pizza wasn't as warm either. When we mentioned this to the waiter all he could say was a brief "sorry". Feeling disappointened we just paid the bill and left. Pity, this could have ended much better if managed properly.

“My New Favourite Italian Place”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Definitely the best pizza in Cape Town. Authentic Italian food should be uncomplicated but made with the best and freshest ingredients. This is what they do so well. Home-cured ham, proper mozzarella and a crispy thin base. Second time back I tried the baby calamari pizza. This was absolutely outstanding - made with perfectly cooked calamari and the freshest heirloom tomatoes. I will be back to try the rest.

“Warm welcome, lovely Italian cuisine”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

I visited La Frasca with a large group recently. We were greeted warmly by Erika, who was attentive to our group all evening, despite being filled to capacity.
La Frasca is a small restaurant but with a fantastic array of specials plus the standard menu of pizzas and pastas. For a vegetarian this is great place, the food you'd expect from an Italian, plus some more interesting vegetarian pizzas too.
The restaurant is a little tucked away from the main streets, but well worth seeking out.
