This place amazed me! I was sceptical when the waiter presented the little black board with there entire menu on it and I thought....not much variety but each dish is so carefully, beautifully and tastefully presented and made that no matter what you order it will be fantastic! There is something for everyone on that little menu which proves you... More

This is a small street-side Italian family-run restaurant that serves a wide range of foods, including burgers, salads, wraps, as well as pastas using recipes handed down from "La Nonna". The 4-cheeses gnocchi was really delicious. The staff are friendly and efficient. Good lunch spot if you work in the area. Free Wi-fi.

Service, Drinks and choice were very good. We ordered the French toast and all was good except for the actual French toast itself where the bread was a choice of white, brown or health

It's really that simple. This place trades off its location closer to better, busier options and serves substandard fare with an unimaginative wine list. Just go somewhere else, 4th Ave is packed with great options.

A friend and I decided to visit 4th avenue in parkhurst on Valentine's Day mostly due to load shedding but also to avoid cabin fever. I had not been to 4th avenue in a while and missed the charm. We walked along the avenue to try and find a place to eat looking at what was available. We eventually settled... More

Food arrive cold was no busy at the time. Fillet Steak Disappointed big time. Breakfast is a NO. Ambiance is good for drinks and very lite foods. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ELSE. Management seemed to apologies most of time to other patrons.

We went for dinner last night. The food is ridiculously overpriced. The food was off. The manager was rude. We will not return.

Have eaten here 3 times in the last few months - and I keep going back. Nothing fancy - just a small place with good service, friendly waiters and really good food. Had the mussels starter and can recommend that as well as the king prawns for mains. Will be back.

This trendy spot seems to disappear in a street with so much to offer, but it's well worth the visit. The pasta and salads take you straight to Italy while the variety on the menu means satisfaction for all. Stop, look and enjoy.
