A popular corner restaurant and pub which is well located. Just an average place for a cold beer and some average. Not bad. Really, don't book - just pitch up. If full - just move on.

....great place to be, great terrace, new ownership, but food still takes too long to be prepared, same like before, some staff trained and attentive others not at all and as you get the bill, you'll be astonished, too expensive, no value for money, and tip will automatically added, be careful

My wife and I found this gem while visiting Gordons Bay. The menu is varied with everything you'd expect to find on an italian menu but suprisingly we both ordered steaks as we felt like meat. They were both delicious and the veggies that accompanied the meat was also great. The pizzas looked amazing as we couldn't he;p seeing other... More

We visited on a Monday night which is probably not the best night to review a restaurant. There is an unusual set up with the seating - the smokers sit inside in the main restaurant and have tables at the window - the non-smokers sit on the side in the 'extension' or on the stoep. So as non-smokers we ended... More

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
