“Great intimate Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I am a very regular customer (a few times a week) when I am in Cape Town (October to April). Consistent & good food, friendly, Italian husband & wife (chef) team. What more could one want?

“Linnie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Always a favorite for my husband and me somewhere to hide from the crowd while enjoying the most delicious food. Service is quick and friendly and the chef being the owner takes great pride in what she produces. Wine list well thought out. A caring attitude to customers and food found here

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

This was one of our favourite restaurants in Camps Bay and we ate there several times during a recent visit. The proprietor presents the day's specials in person which is a good opportunity to see how good your Italian is! The menu is relatively small but there's something for everyone, including vegetarians. The food is relatively expensive but is tasty and authentic.

There's a nice atmosphere when there's a few people in and seems popular with locals. We were the only people there with children, but we were still welcomed and our son given a little extra attention.

Recommended.

“Fantastic Italian food at very reasonable prices.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

We ate the lobster linguine from the specials menu and the fish of the day, seared Tuna steak. Both dishes tasted amazing; so fresh, and perfectly cooked. Great find! We only have four nights in Cape Town and there is so much on offer but we may go here again before we leave.
