“Service exellente'”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Excellent outdoor seating and a nice piazza vibe. As a storm was brewing, the friendly staff quickly ushered us inside and assisted our wheel chair bound friend to the table.

The very competent manageress quickly sorted out the apparent problem with our order (which we did not even notice) and provided us with a complementary and very tasty green salad while we were waiting.

The Italian Stallion pizza was well worth waiting for and went well with the Butterfly Juice Chardonnay. The Bird Bath Merlot and Lazy Pussy Pinotage sounded tempting too. These are house wines worth trying, but a comprehensive wine list is also available.

Apart from the traditional, the menu boasts of a wide variety of pizzas made with imagination and flair. This is fun food with names such as Cool Runnings, Porky the Pig and Pavement Special (no, not road kill). There is a choice of anti pasta and pasta dishes to cater for any taste.

This was a happy night out with good friends, good food, and excellent service. It did not feel like a franchise at all and rather gave the impression of a committed owner and staff dedicated to their customers. Keep it up girls!

“Best pizza”
Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

This place served us some of the best pizza we have eaten in south Africa. I wish we had something of this standard close to home in somerset west. The actual restaurant not a fan of the decor etc, would prefer simple clean colours, it is a bit much! But the food excellent and that's what counts.

“It's OK”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

For a pizza place, the food was very good. I went with a friend there for lunch and as I'm not a big pizza eater I ordered salmon. The food was really delicious, but it takes long time. Service needs serious improvement.

“Delicous meal”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Piza e Vino was very busy on the night we went. Service was friendly and helpful. My pizza was really delicious and the pasta we ordered equally so. Very impressed with the food. We will return.
