Have tried a few of the items on the menu - tasty and generous. Am looking forward to trying more. Great also for take-aways.

Alforno is known for their pizzas but a must try is the Calzone! I ordered mine as a Visuvio (very hot) ... fresh tasty ingrediants...well proportioned. Thin crispy dough and they don't skimp on the cheese! Fast attentive service and well priced.

If you love your pizza, this is the best place to go. The Del Mare is absolutely delicious! My personal favoutrite is the lasagne which is made in the real Italian way. If you look for something else, try the Osso Bucco - also awesome. The atmosphere is friendly and cosy and the service friendly and efficient. And don't forget... More

Went back twice during our visit - service very good. Disappointed there was an indoor smoking section which resulted in the non-smoking section being a bit cramped.

Pizza's were very good. They offer gluten-free bases for an extra R15 which is great! The service was not great as they were busy when we went, and the pizzas took a while but were well worth it!

Great tasting wood oven pizzas. The location is nice and you can come right off the beach after a swim to have great food.
