We went with friends to Burrata at the Old Biscuit Mill. Read great reviews of the place - and it certainly lived up to it's expectations. Starters, pizzas and dessert were awesome. Would recommend the prawn and mozza pizza. Little gripe - the base was a bit chewy. Service was not too bad, but we had some difficulty understanding the waitress. The place was packed, so booking is essential. Vibey!

We are from italy and we spent nice saturday in this place. Pizza was ok. Really good pizza. We ate a margherita and mozza both very good. Also the two starters ok. A good fried vegetables and a Puglia burrata very good. 2 biers at normal price. Drink wine here Is very expensive. Also water Is charged 37 rand! Service not so fast but waiters were kind. Total price 2 persons 400 rand pizza+appetizer. Not cheap.
We will go again here.

The upmarket decor and friendly service were unfortunately undone by a thoroughly disappointing meal - our table of eight had a mixture of risotto and pizza dishes - whilst the risotto was acceptable, the pizza was dreadful - thick bready base, which was soggy and uncooked in the middle with absolutely tasteless fillings - an experience not to be repeated, and not what we, as visitors to Cape Town, expected of what is sold as a quality eatery

Exquisite tastes and textures. Mixed mushrooms, white onion puree, smoked aubergine and parsley oil. The pasta is homemade, of course. This was preceded by a burrata starter. Perfect.
The location is an interesting space(the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock), the service is attentive but not overwhelming. A return visit, soon, is planned.

Great Neapolitan-style pizza (very thin crust, cooked at high temp for a short time). Our group shared 3 pizzas; my favourite was the Salciccia with fennel sausage, caramelized onions, smoked mozzarella and baby spinach. Delicious! Impressive wine list, and the ambiance is nice sitting outside in the courtyard at the Old Biscuit Mill. Service, however, was disappointing and did not match the quality of the place.

Also - they close at 3pm on Saturdays so get there before the kitchen closes!
