When we arrived, our party of 11 was the only table in the restaurant. We initially sat inside, but later, due to it being unseasonably pleasant outside, we enquired if we could join two of the outside tables together and sit there, to which the reply, from the manager, was: "The owner doesn't allow it". Having been associated with the... More

Rude people as when you get there they are closed but the sign says the opening times but all they tell you is that it is wrong and you must come back at 6, they won`t even say come and sit and enjoy a drink at the bar until they open. Will not go back there.

Quaint indoor area, decorated with lots of old photos and old chairs hanging from the ceiling. Service was good and the pizzas we ordered were delicious. The pastas ordered were not as tasty as the pizzas, so have a pizza when you visit.

We stumbled upon this lovely little restaurant while exploring Montagu and decided to give it a try as we were 100% 'steaked out' after almost 2 weeks in SA. What a joy it was! The quaint interior, with just a half dozen or so tables, was a bizarre cross between Italy and Africa - but somehow it worked. We almost... More

Very satisfying Breakfast menu although we would prefer to have an eggs and bacon type breakfast. The food is tasty and well prepared and the Pizza crusts are exceptional.

We started going to this little Italian spot when it first opened a few years ago and we are so pleased to see it is still around. Book a table outside if the weather is good.Peter and his family are always on duty and he makes the most divine pizza. A must if you are in the area, you will... More

Having had the most delightful breakfast meeting at this establishment, we assumed that we could repeat the experience at our leisure, however, apparently not as we continuously are turned away by the locked gates and closed property. I assume the hit and miss visits are OK for the owner but we no longer plan for this restaurant.

A true gem. Totally unexpected in a small village. Very professionally managed with excellent waiters. Fresh, locally sourced and imaginative food of a quality usually expected in top restaurants.

We just popped in for a late lunch. Sat outside and enjoyed the winter sun. I really enjoyed the Piccolo pasta dish and and the excellent coffee!

We stayed in Montagu last week and thought we would try this little "Italian" restaurant. We called the mobile number listed only to be directed to another mobile number to reserve a table for 6 on Saturday night. Which i did. We booked for 7 o'clock and arrived a couple of minutes early only to be told that all the... More
