“Authentic and fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2011

We frequented this restaurant in Windhoek for many months that we were there for. The owners are Italian and the atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. We only tried their seafood and vegetarian food and it NEVER disappointed us. In fact, we found there pizzas to be much nicer than what you find in the US. Their calamari starter is excellent, their wine selection is good and their homemade lasagna and raviolis are simply deletable. Like the rest of Namibia, their ice creams/ gelato is not good and seems to be made with vegetable fat instead of cream. Their tiramisu is homemade and good but their malva pudding is not the best.

“Overprized & poor food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2010

the pizzas are not looking too bad but the saltimbocca is terrible. Waiters are continuously pushing to order sth or get you out. Seems the restaurant just got too popular and the owners to greedy.

“Great Pizza's in Africa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2010

We loved the vibe and could see why it was packed on a week night! Pizza's are the thin-based, crispy kind with interesting toppings. And value-for-money.

“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2010

This place is a good choice for pasta - I had a lovely vegetarian lasagna (or was it canneloni? sorry, can't remember). I've also had pizzas here, which are good too, but I prefer the pasta here.
The ice cream can be absolutely fantastic or a bit disappointing. As they make it themselves over there, it's always a good idea to ask which flavours are good at that point. Sometimes the chocolate is absolutely mind blowing. Overall, it's quite good value for money and friendly people.
