This restaurant has been going for over 20 years, and has maintained its brilliant standard. We were given complimentary Prosecco when we arrived, as well as delicious bread, artichoke pate and olive paste. I ate the spinach canneloni, which had perfectly cooked pasta and a delicious sauce. We were too full to have dessert, but while we were walking around... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Jo'burg. The food is fantastic (though not across the entire menu). My favorites are the starters, washed down with the complimentary prosecco.

If you don't know about this place, you have been living under a rock! Early evening walk ins in the week are fine, but booking is essential during other times. The food is amazing - pastas are homemade, try the ravioli with butter and sage. The melanzane parmigiana is out of this world. The starter portions are big, AND you... More

We come here fairly often, and we are never disappointed. The quality of food is superb. The waiters are efficient, fast and friendly. The manager and manageress are always visible and check on you throughout the evening. The vibe is modern Italian but not contemporary. The setting is crisp and clean without being sterile. All in all, it was a... More

Consistently delicious food, great service, and extra touches (like complementary sparkling wine, fresh bread and dips and "amuse-bouches") make this an incredible restaurant. I also love that it is run by an Italian family - you know its authentic when you hear their accents. Their pasta is addictive!

Not a total success for us. Great surroundings, great deli, clearly visible and effective manager. Has all the atmosphere you'd expect in a good Italian restaurant. The good things - the glass of prosecco offered on arrival, the aubergine melanzane that I ordered and hugely enjoyed, the bottle of Vergelegen red blend, the ice cream. Not so good - the... More

I've never been to such an authentic Italian restaurant. Food is of top quality and always tastes home made. You can tell it's made with love and passion the way only Italians can! Prices are reasonable and the location is perfect. Well worth a visit. Lovely deli available in the day to buy cheeses, pasta sauces, olives and other Italian... More

I only recently had my first visit to this delectable little eatery and WOW- I will become a regular. Everything is great- from the moment they welcome you with a free glass of Prosecco until you have eaten the last bite of your post dinner cheese platter. Their buffalo mozzarella is the best we have had in SA and the... More
