Great lunch option near the Book Lounge

We were so happy to find this little place when we were getting really hungry with a young child in tow. Very friendly owner and lovely, quiet, cool interior on a hot Saturday. The pizzas were very tasty and we will recommend the take-away and delivery options to those we know who live in the city... read more

I live close by so I've seen the place a few times. Due to the modest decor and the simplistic signage you aren't exactly drawn in ,but on a lazy Sunday evening a friend and I had a craving for pizza. We started with a cocktail we both had a long island needless to say their bartender needs better cocktail... More

As regulars we always have Diva pizza ( delicious) but on Saturday night we decided to have something different. The pasta salmone was absolutely delicious and the mushroom mussaka is a real treat.

A busy little spot and on a Saturday evening expect to wait or be turned away if you haven't made a reservation, which, unfortunately we had not. The owner allowed us to wait while a table became available after which we experienced more of the same - waiting, that is. Our waitress seemed a bit unsure of herself and after... More

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 neighborhood restaurant provides everything you need: straight-forward great... 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
