I arrived and was ignored after I sat down for quite a while, maybe as I was a lone diner.
Starter of squid was good, soft, well seasoned and tasty.
Osso Bucco and Polenta unfortunately had been through the microwave, I would have preferred to have waited and had it brought back to heat slowly.
Waiter became more engaged and I had a pleasant evening.
I'll give it another go but will order pizza as they have a clay oven and I guess this is what they are best at.

What a blast! Mateo guided us through our meal tonight. If you want real authentic Italian cuisine, this is the place. Casual dining with housemade pastas and pizza. The antipasti for two was outstanding and served with a flatbread. We shared spaghetti with house made bolognese which was great. Great service and the owner Enrico makes certain everything runs smoothly. Nice wine selections. All very reasonably priced. Try the gelato with warm chocolate sauce. Yumm. Thanks to Eva, Mateo and Enrico for a fun dining experience. Oh, they are open on Sunday nights unlike many restaurants in CapeTown.

Very nice food, excellent service, good wine. A little cramped but the friendly atmosphere more than made up for that.

We had dinner at the Postichino last month. Food was not impressive at all. Every pasta what we order was oily. Lasagna was way too rich and oily.
Service was very good, waiters know theirs products and specials. But it does not make up for food.
