This place is only suitable for a quick meal. Average and simple food. Stunning position and friendly service. A little overpriced.

Best pizza we had in Cape Town area! All South African pizza was amazing, but Al Forno's has more than just great pizza. Friendly staff, free wi-fi, AWESOME SALADS, wine, beer, seating inside and outside and wonderful views of the bay! We ate there several times while we stayed at Gordon't Bay and even after we moved to Cape Town... More

When in an Italian Restaurant stick to the Italian dishes. The lasagne was good. The fillet steak not great.

We enjoyed our Mexican themed brekkie at this cafe. Nice surroundings, clean, food well presented and very tasty. My wife had a Mexican style omelet which was great and I had spicy sausages on caramelised onions and sweet peppers, yum!

One of the best pizzas in Cape Town and a view to beat. The service was relaxed. There is ample parking available.

Thinnest base well topped pizzas. Recommended by a fellow diner who just comes for the pizza. Have not tried anything else. Have pizza each visit!

Once we had our food, I had to go looking for our waiter on numerous occasions for service. He was sitting inside reading. My husband's steak was terrible and when he told the manager, all he said was, "Nobody else has complained about it" and walked away. They still charged us for my husband's meal, even though he had one... More

Food average but vegetables not hot enough. Service OK. Appallingly this place permits smoking in the large part of the internal restaurant. No aircon to combat the smoke but plenty of fans to spread the stench. I am shocked, as a visiting tourist, that smoking is permitted in any restaurant in SA. I imagine that this place is giving 2...
