“Unpretentious, authentic Italian cuisine”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Great spot for a business lunch, or for a candle-lit evening meal. The decor is unfussy and unpretentious, with a marvellous, well curated menu by Luca, the amiable owner. Their jazz evenings are well worth a visit too. One to watch.

“Real Flavor of Italy”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Luca, the owner is truly passionate about what he does, and serves the most authentic Italian food in Cape Town. The atmosphere is unique, and you do not have to pay through the roof for an exceptional dinning experience. Highly recommend this up and coming young enterprise!
