“my new hang-out just around the corner from my house!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

great 'little Italian restaurant' that does not compromise on the quality of service, decor or food.

a spur of the moment decision to eat-out on a cold & rainy Sunday afternoon in Cape Town lead to a 2 hour dinner which topped off with the 'ice-cream cake... A-MAZING!

thoroughly impressed by the FOOD, convenience of the location, access, service, wine list and finally the great food!

“Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Dined in April and the food, atmosphere and service was really good. Parking is also easy with the Blou Route Mall's new parking lot opposite the street.

All round an excellent experience with no negatives.

“Great service and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I've been almost 10 times and always bring friends here.
- The owners are warm and friendly right from taking your reservation to meeting you at the door to say hello and goodbye.
- The waiters are attentive, yet unobstrusive and not pretentious.
- The food is not just good, but also great value for money. Portions are very generous.
- The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and not too loud.

Last night they apologised in advance for a longer than usual wait as they had 2 big tables and offered us a free large garlic and cheese pita to nibble on while we waited. The food arrived much earlier than we expected. We had to take doggy bags because the starters were larger than expected as well as the free garlic pita.
