“Crazy!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

It was the fourth or fifth time we have been to this place.
The first time we went there we were amazed with the kindness of the lady that was hosting the place... The other times we were received by another gentleman that reproduced the same good vibe.
The food is incredibly delicious and we can't avoid visiting again. A small Bistrot for the food lovers.
I've loved the pork fillet with cheese and my wife is crazy for the seafood risotto.
They have a stuffed calamari that is like a dream.
Lovely desserts.

Due to reviews like this, I strongly recommend previous booking... The place is getting crowded on weekends and I know why.

“Brilliant!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have been going to this little Italian gem for years. With its accolades in Eat Out 2013 our thoughts were confirmed. This is a top spot in Jhb. The staff, food and quotes on the wall all ensure that you will have a memorable experience.... . Go- you will love it!

“Great italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

A very good wine list, great menu and interesting specials. The calamari and chicken roulade are great. The food is very tasty and service outstanding.

Atmosphere- this is italian, so loud and noisy with vibrant energy.

“Will be back”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013 via mobile

I have just recently been introduced to this little gem. I have been there three times in the last two months and they were closed for one of them. Last time we went we had a superb bottle of boekenhoutskoof cab sav, only problem was the vintage advertised was not what was served. However the price for this highly rated wine was well within reason. Once again all the food we ate was superb, the three of us shared our main courses as we had requested. I find this the best way to experience all the food on the menu. We definitely will be back.

“Exceptional food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013 via mobile

A group of us went for dinner on Saturday night. Restaurant quirky and warm. The starters were delicious. The mains were better! Every single person's plate was licked clean. Ordered salmon special with sesame crust. Absolutely heavenly (ask for wasabi on the side). My husband had lamb chops. Best he's ever had. Ravioli also worth mentioning! Service was friendly and efficient. Strongly recommend a visit.
