“Lovely unpretentious spot”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

This is (yet another) relatively new restaurant in Hout Bay. The atmosphere is OK, the murals a bit amateurish, but the food and value is really good.

FOOD: Delicious! I opted for the gnocchi with Gorgonzola sauce. My sister went for the seafood pasta with a cream base. I tasted it and it was also very tasty.

DRINKS: The Grapetiser/Appeltisers is very reasonable less than R20 each.

SERVICE: Very friendly server.

VALUE FOR MONEY: Food and drinks very reasonably priced.

RECOMMENDABLE: Yes, not bad at all 7/10

“Italian down south”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

A sweet little slice of pizza on the southern tip of the african map. Friendly staff with a pure italian to great you at the top of the stairs. Authentic memorabilia and history. A rich italian feel and with a great selection of traditional pasta, pizza and more. This is a place where I watched a young woman, sitting with a glass of white wine and bottled still water, mysteriously writing notes in her diary and sitting in her own world. Taking a moment and enjoying it like a proper italian cafe. Hout bays little home of wonder.

Thank Craig W

Reviewed 18 May 2014

Booked here for Mothers Day Lunch. It was packed but everything was up to expectation. Food was great and was very timeous, service and attentiveness of the waiter and management above reproach. Will be back.

“first visit and very disappointed”
Reviewed 19 April 2014

i went to posticino a couple of weeks ago and will never go back again. the location is beautiful and that was the only good part of being there. it was a late sunday afternoon and the place was not very busy at all. a lot of staff standing around and still took 15 minutes to get a drink. we ordered a garlic bread which was tasteless and a Napoletana pasta that was more like cheap tomato sauce on over-cooked pasta. my friend ordered a cream based pasta that was watery and bland and the pasta was also overcooked. the owner came to our table to see how things were with a sleeveless shirt, hairy armpits, and shorts leaning over the table and the food. I was absolutely disgusted by his actions and the food and will never go back.
