We have been going to this little Italian gem for years. With its accolades in Eat Out 2013 our thoughts were confirmed. This is a top spot in Jhb. The staff, food and quotes on the wall all ensure that you will have a memorable experience.... . Go- you will love it!

A very good wine list, great menu and interesting specials. The calamari and chicken roulade are great. The food is very tasty and service outstanding.

Atmosphere- this is italian, so loud and noisy with vibrant energy.

I have just recently been introduced to this little gem. I have been there three times in the last two months and they were closed for one of them. Last time we went we had a superb bottle of boekenhoutskoof cab sav, only problem was the vintage advertised was not what was served. However the price for this highly rated wine was well within reason. Once again all the food we ate was superb, the three of us shared our main courses as we had requested. I find this the best way to experience all the food on the menu. We definitely will be back.

A group of us went for dinner on Saturday night. Restaurant quirky and warm. The starters were delicious. The mains were better! Every single person's plate was licked clean. Ordered salmon special with sesame crust. Absolutely heavenly (ask for wasabi on the side). My husband had lamb chops. Best he's ever had. Ravioli also worth mentioning! Service was friendly and efficient. Strongly recommend a visit.

Non mainstream location probably gives them more time and R to focus on quality food. Staff were all friendly and knowledgeable - think they're really proud of working there. Had tagliatelle with tuna in habanero infused tomato based sauce and peas | homemade ice cream with amaretto, roasted almonds and orange rind - delicious!
