All I can say, HONEYMOON PASTA is the only thing I can see on the menu, I haven't ever tried anything else except this and it is brilliant. Please trust me. This is served next door at Marco.s which for some reason is not on Trip Advisor? Excellent restaurant as well.

Sometimes its brilliant and other times the exact same meal - we always have the same thing so we know - is different! Pizza's were very cold had to send back and the steak in the pasta was overcooked. but we have had some really awesome meals there and will still support

The first time I ever went to Marcos was in Oct. We had good service, didn't wait long for our food and the meals were reasonably priced. I had the best pizza I had ever eaten in my entire life. It had langoustines chili and rocket. The pizza base was just perfect. Anyways in Dec I decided to take my vegetarian friend from Cape Town there. It was like a totally different restaurant. We waited so long for a waitress to attend to us. She finally bought us our drinks and took our order. Her breath was not to fresh either which was kinda gross. Mine and my boyfriends pizza finally came which was cold, didn't have chili and didn't have rocket. We told the waitress and she bought us a plate with rocket and chili. My friends pizza comes and it has meat on it. It was not the pizza he ordered. The pizza he ordered finally comes when my boyfriend and I had finished eating so he decided to take his pizza as a take away. When the waitress opens the take away box for him to put his pizza in he realizes its a used box and had melted cheese in it. So she takes it away and takes a while to come back and brings a polystyrene box in which he had to squash his whole pizza into. The bill comes and mine and my boyfriends pizzas were on the house so we didn't pay for them. There are two big red pots for decoration outside their front door. As we were leaving we walked past these two big red pots and they had a large number of dirty nappies in them, I was totally disgusted and put me off ever going back to Marcos Italian :(

Nice small Italian restaurant -- the food choices are good, and so too are the dishes. the prices are also easy on the pocket and it is worthwhile visiting
