Typical trattoria decor. Nothing fancy but very cozy and authentic. Very swift and friendly. But the highlight remains the food. Pizze and pasta were spot on. We will definitely be back to explore the rest of the menu. Highly recommecnded

We had two good meals here. We particularly liked the fish dishes. The menu showed SQ for one but we ended up paying R15 more than the price were told when we initially enquired. We didn't make a fuss though - the fish was delicious. Closing hours seem to be a bit early compared with other establishments, so check first. We would eat there again - definitely. Friendly, knowledgeable and efficient staff
