Great Authentic Pizza

I had the fortunate opportunity to spend three months in Cape Town. This extended period allowed me to try many of the popular and trendy restaurants in the city. Some were great; many did not live up to their hype. One restaurant, however, I returned to six times: Diva Pizza! This quaint... read more

Interesting. Small and next to an occasionally busy road. Straddled between 2 other establishments so continuous cross-pollination. Pizzas are good. Waitress a bit dim and inattentive but owner was happy for us to enjoy ourselves and finish our wine even though packing up for the evening. I am gonna to give it another try... 😃

Diva has sat quietly next to the 'Perseverance Tavern' for quite some time. Often popping up in conversations when visiting Percies, yet never truly capturing my attention. One night me and some mates decided to give it a try. The Italian restaurant can be found in a quaint little court yard tightly wedged (perhaps a little too tightly) between the... More

As many other reviewer's have mentioned, you go to Diva Pizza for the pizza - not the decor or the ambiance. And the pizza was good. To some extent I can also appreciate the "hole-in-the-wall" atmosphere and decor, as it fits in with the mid-city experience. Unfortunately the service, although friendly, was very very slow and not as attentive as... More

This place makes the most awesome pizzas and they are excellently priced. I ate their pizzas at least once a week, but haven't been back in a while since I moved. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend eating there since the ambience and vibe is somewhat tired. But let me stress, this pizza is delish, lovely thin crusted dream

http://divapizza.co.za/ What a lovely surprise, thank you http://thefugard.com/about-the-fugard-theatre/make-a-night-of-it for pointing it out as a preshow option. We did the pizza ( to share ). Nice thin crisp base, lovely toppings, delicious. If you have a show ticket for the day they give you a complementary glass of house wine. Don't be greedy, glass per main meal ordered. I will definitely... More

We ate here between sets at the jazz club next door. We were surprised by how good the pizza tasted and would highly recommend eating here. I can't believe they only have one location.

Diva has been my favourite pizza restaurant for a very long time and the quality of the pizza never varies - always excellent. The venue - gazing up at Table Mountain from the outside tables - is hard to beat. Good value, secure parking, efficient take-away BUT on my last trip we discovered that they now serve boxed wine -... More

We went to Diva's last night to watch Sharon Seidel and her daughter Dara at this small, out of the way place in upper Cape Town CBD. The place is nice, very small and intimate. The wine list is very limited but not bad. The staff could not be nicer or more helpful and enthusiastic. The reason for the 3... More
