I enjoyed my meal here a lot. It was a classic Italian menu with all the classics and I really recommend their Pizza's and Pasta. Great place for a romantic evening.

First visit coffee & muffin courtesy of a friend. Following week & again a couple of weeks later stopped for lunch, good omelettes. Beer not cold enough but the wine was better for some ice. Efficient unobtrusive staff it's a good place to rest your weary feet after shopping at the Mall or to read their newspaper and have a... More

Good hearty Omelette, they don’t skimp on the fillings. Was totally and utterly stuffed, was good value for money. Good service and is located in a better, less noisy part of the mall in my opinion.

I love to come here for their omelettes, to me, the best in Durban. Also some of the best milkshakes around. A lovely little cafe with a pleasant atmosphere and good food. One of the few places in Durban to serve streaky bacon, and as someone who doesn't like other bacon, it does keep me coming back. Also of course... More

I was visiting from the US and popped in here for breakfast. I have to say their Italian Breakfast was possibly the best breakfast I've had in my life, and their espresso-based coffee beat anything I've had in New York in the last year- it was so good I bought a kilogram of beans on the way out, and I'm...
