Its one of the only decent restaurants in the Rondebosch area so a big favourite amongst those in the Southern Suburbs. The pizza is really good with a crunchy base as a result of the wood fired oven they use and the pasta is rather tasty. The only criticism i have is that the pricing is becoming more expensive than... More

Pasta & pizza restaurant; looks like nothing from the outside; inside decor is simple with mix & match style plain wooden furniture but don't worry, you're about to enjoy the pizza experience of a lifetime......friendly & efficient staff; extensive menu featuring literally dozens of different combinations, most of which you'll have never considered combining. Thin based pizzas with thick layer... More

It's our "local". Great pizza, kid friendly and a good attitude towards corkage, a bottle between two make it a real pleasure to dine at, summer or winter. Waiting staff are student types that are clearly intelligent and attentive. Highly recommended informal spot !

I've been dining here on and off for 12 years and it's still the same group of guys that run and own it - always friendly and the pizzas are consistently good and tasty. You can either sit inside or in the garden at the back on a warm evening. The pizzas are a thin crust with generous toppings

This is my favourite place to go for pizza in Cape Town. The restaurant is tucked away in an old house behind the Seven Eleven, and after a long day it feels more like arriving at a friend's place than at a restaurant. As everyone else has said, the pizza is consistently delicious. Most Capetonians (including myself) seem to favour... More

I have been coming here since January 2007 and I have never left this Pizzeria disappointed. If you are visiting Cape Town for the first time, this restaurant should be on your ‘to visit’ list. Yes, it's slightly off the tourist trail but it's worth it.The pizzas are simply brilliant. The service is excellent and casual, in other words, unpretentious... More
