“Great”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Fantastic pizzeria, with lovely ambience. Several vegetarian options on the menu. We were fortunate that it wasn't full but in whale season, I imagine it can get crowded so I would suggest booking

“Great food”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

We ate at this restaurant during our visit to Hermanus. The pasta was delicious and the restaurant is centrally located in Hermanus overlooking the sea. The service was very good - I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good Italian food in a casual setting.

“Scrumptious meal in a wonderful setting”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

Arrived for lunch and as it was a little nippy we sat inside. Had the seafood past and it was absolutely divine - we will be back for that alone!!
Service was exceptional and there was a lovely ambiance despite the restaurant not being too busy.
Will be back....

“Good Italian food for casual dinner”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

This is the restaurant we chose for dinner after having just arrived in Hermanus after a 2-hour drive from Cape Town central. ideal for the quick bite, no fuss, laid-back. Just eat-and-go restaurant. can also be enjoyed for a lovely dinner but we were just in the mood for dinner then sleep. Service a bit slow and inattentive.
