The whole family loved the food here. We had both pizza and pasta. We recommend the safari pizza with springbock carpaccio on. We have to go back once more before going home.

Big Route has given me the best dining experience I have ever had in my entire life and I’ve been to hundreds of restaurants, food is my passion and I very rarely write reviews.

The owner is the most authentic and warm-hearted human I have ever come across, such intensity and has a true passion for what he does, and did I mention attractive? Probably one of the top 3 hottest people on earth it’s like having your own personal Johnny Depp. Throughout the night we lived vicariously through his words and stories as he engaged with us, it was very easy to see why their food is of the highest quality.

Everything about the place is unique and the waiters, very rarely do you come across genuine equals people you want to invite over to extend your company at the table and dine with you, that how it feels their staff is incredible (not “trained” it’s natural they act on their own, they go above and beyond), throughout my visits there I have interacted with all of them at some stage and this is true for every one of them.

Buy the owner a shot expresso after your meal to thank him for what he managed to create.

Words cannot describe the richness and quality of their food, there are so much work and passion and attention to detail that goes into every meal it’s almost unfathomable what they are able to serve in terms of fresh quality and flavor.

Make no mistake this is a world class restaurant whose chefs, staff and owners are second to none.

The pizza’s were delicious: flavoursome with fabulous thin crispy base. Spagnola with avo and the Ciao Bambino was a favourite for us.
The staff were friendly, but unfortunately the place was crammed & we waited over an house for our pizza. Would like to try them on a night when there isn’t a concert.

Awesome restaurant in a great area. The food was absolute fantastic, some of the best Gnocchi we’ve ever had. With that goes a very comfortable warm atmosphere. We will definitely return.
