Enjoyed a stunning meal with foodies from Dubai and Dar es Salaam! Everyone very impressed with flavours and texture. Service impeccable - informed, attentive & discreet. Could not fault or suggest any improvements. Consistently great!

A fellow guest at our hotel(Mount Nelson) who was on his 10th week of a 3 month holiday was waxing lyrical about this restaurant which he had been patronising for the last 15 years. My wife and I accompanied him and his wife one evening. We normally avoid 'Italian' restaurants outside of Italy but this was different; food beautifully prepared... More

This is a local favourite and is always busy. It can be noisy as the tables are close together...we prefer to sit in the room that is furthest away from Reception. Food is well prepared and service usually good but last night was a fiasco....we arrived at 19.15 p.m. and received our main courses at 20.45...to wait an hour and... More

Lovely to eat in this family run Resturant, it's well run and the food is real comfort food. Always busy so you must book a table. Well worth the visit if you're in for a good solid meal. Definitely recommend.

Their reputation stretches as far afield as Durban as we travelled through South Africa! A warm friendly greeting was followed by a personal greeting by the owners and then the extravaganza of food, flavours and service began! As I write this review My taste buds cry out to return! Good old Italian food takes a lot to beat but this... More

What a combination, great food, service, excellent wine list and accommodating attitude. Nothing is too much trouble. It is not a huge restaurant so the space is maximized and the tables close together. But you will soon forget that and enjoy the authentic Italian experience and mouth watering food. The anti pasta platter is a winner.

If you are looking for a restaurant with true Italian cuisine this is the place to go. Magica Roma has numerous Italian style dishes to choose from including a wide range of pizza's and pastas. I ended up ordering a pizza which was great, but had a taste of one of the pasta dishes and I would definitely try a... More
