Best Italian resturant I have ever been to. A hangout place for the local Capetonians. I had the rib eye steak...excellent. Friends had the veal and raved about it. Excellent wine list. To end the perfect meal....indulge yourselve and have cream brulee or terramasu. Price slightly more than usual....but certainly worth every cent. Love it.

We just had the best Valintines Day meal here. The food is amazing. The wait staff is super attentive and the maitre d' is ever so accommodating with a full restaurant to manage.

We have lived in Pinelands for the past 25 years and have been going to Magica Roma on a regular basis. Our eldest son turned 24 and when asked which restaurant he wanted to go to to celebrate, he said Magica Roma without hesitation. After all these years of going to Magica Roma we are well known to the owners... More

Decided to visit this place because of all the positive comments, but it is nothing special. Fish soup is tomato soup with some sea food and it is also on the main course under a different name. It is not bad but if you love Italian food there are much better places to find in Cape Town.
