Went there a while back when there where very busy and only had a table with a view to the kitchen. This was so impressingly lively that for our next visit we booked the same table again, just for the view. Which quite impressed the owners :-)-O They serve basic Italian fare, but very well done, especially the pizzas, and... More

The food was tasty, there was plenty of choice, portions were generous and well priced. The menu wasn't particularly imaginative but certainly one is assured of a reasonable quality meal.

We were in Windhoek for several weeks. This place became our favorite for coffee in the morning and food for lunch or dinner. Thank you to the owners for making us feel very welcome. We look forward to coming again!

So inexpensive compered with other similar dining establishments in the area. As it get extremely busy in the evening, booking a table in advance is advisable. We were surprised at the ample size of our starters (Salad and Calamari)., we were so full afterwards we couldn't finish our pizzas, which were absolutely lovely, we were leaving the flowing day for...

If you like the idea of being squeezed in like sardines, having the waiters continually bump you as they try to move between tables and instead of some nice music in the background you just hear the managers shouting at the chefs in the kitchen...........then you will love this place. It is so packed you cant relax what with all... More

Great food and service, a little gem in Windhoek. Lovely Italian food but do try the pizza, the best in the world. I do like the fact that the owner is on duty all the time and ensure that the service and quality remain above average. Love the fact that it is now non smoking so choose your table where... More
