I used to love it. I discovered them 8 years ago and been a regular ever since, but lately I noticed they are becoming rather expensive. And then I had their lasagna, which landed me in hospital for 2 days with severe food poisoning. I've been back since, less often than I used to. They need to bring the value... More

Great atmosphere and the pizzas are good - the pasta less remarkable. Waiters cheerful and the whole evening left me content. Delirious? No. Prices were a little higher than I expected but not enough to send me home with a frown. Good spot when you want to eat a fresh pizza in a cozy spot. Booking recommended.

We have been going for years and will continue to do so. Their pizza's are great and we love that we can do half and half. Prices have increased lately but if you take your own wine and its a wine they don't stock there is no corkage which I think is great! We love it for our girlie get... More

Ordered takeaway pizzas and pasta from this local restaurant. Order took a long time (they said it would). Pasta was unspectacular but ok. Pizzas nice, but really small - even my 5 year old daughter was still hungry afterwards. Bit disappointing.

We were a party of 4 to start with, then 2 more guests arrived, and just over an hour after the second lot of arrivals, the last 2 members of the eight-some arrived. We hadn't booked so the restaurant was very full and we were lucky to get a nice warm table for 8 inside after a chilly wait at... More

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 !
