“Best pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Authentic italian style pizza. So yummy! Just to bad I had to pay R16 for a glass of milk... Otherwise a very pleasant experience, even for a solo traveller.

“Great pizzas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Most delicious pizzas! Pasta dishes are a bit more ordinary. Great veal dishes. Difficult to get a table if you have not made a reservation as always this place is always so busy but great for take-outs!

“Waterfront favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

A great place to have a bite and some coffee. Watch the world go by and right on the Waterfront. Very much a true Italian Cafe'.

“Good for pizza and past, lively atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's hard to get a table at Cafe Mario without reservation... the reason is simple: good, unpretentious Italian food that isn't overly expensive, and a lively atmosphere right a Kynsna's waterfront. The pizzas are huge, and the pasta are (nearly) as good as in Italy. Service can be slow at times, but who cares... just order another bottle of wine. For all those who tried all the seafood restaurants and are looking for a refreshing alternative!
