If you want to enjoy a very special dinner while in Camps Bay, get away from the crowd of the touristic main street and go find this little cozy Italian restaurant in one of the roads perpendicular to the beach.
No stereotypes there, Aldo and Cetti will host you with an every-night-changing selection of REAL Sicilian specialities (how can I tell? I am fron Sicily!), prepared with authentic care and passion.
And if you like airplanes, Aldo will sure entertain you with stories about their Southafrican trips on their Jabiru!

Starter and mains were lovely, but the two Sicilian puddings on the menu were not available which is disappointing as it is a Sicilian restaurant and we were there early, so they would not have sold out

I am a very regular customer (a few times a week) when I am in Cape Town (October to April). Consistent & good food, friendly, Italian husband & wife (chef) team. What more could one want?

Always a favorite for my husband and me somewhere to hide from the crowd while enjoying the most delicious food. Service is quick and friendly and the chef being the owner takes great pride in what she produces. Wine list well thought out. A caring attitude to customers and food found here

This was one of our favourite restaurants in Camps Bay and we ate there several times during a recent visit. The proprietor presents the day's specials in person which is a good opportunity to see how good your Italian is! The menu is relatively small but there's something for everyone, including vegetarians. The food is relatively expensive but is tasty and authentic.

There's a nice atmosphere when there's a few people in and seems popular with locals. We were the only people there with children, but we were still welcomed and our son given a little extra attention.

Recommended.
