“Authentic Italian pizza in Cape Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Only visited because of a friends recommendation. Beautiful outside setting in the heart of sea point. Service was excellent and very attentive, but the pizza was amazing!!! Proper wood fired oven pizza ensured a crispy base. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Also value for money is superb, highly recommended

“wonderful meal out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

We did not book and when we arrived on a tuesday evening, it looked very full. All the tables out on the verandah were taken. A guy greeted us warmly and found a table inside.
The food was excellent - the tastiest italian food I have had in CT
It is obvious that the locals frequent this restaurant and the pizzas were great.
Definitely go back there when I am next in CT

“Really nice vibe!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Posticino makes delicious pizza and the atmosphere at the restaurant is great. When the weather is warm you can enjoy the outdoor seating area. The owner and the staff at the restaurant are also fantastic!

“Surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

Posticino was a pleasant surprise, we've driven by numerous times. Met some Cape Town friends there at their recommendation. Deck was crowded, but they had our reservation and we were settled immediately. After that service was somewhat slow, The menu at Posticino is primarily wood fired pizza, some pastas and meats if you request it. We asked for sauce suggestions for the pastas and oh my were they good! One of our party ordered the veal, not so nice. They pizza another person customized was great. Very ample portions. Lots of customization of meals allowed and encouraged.

“truly Italian place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

this is a lovely and very authentic Italian Restaurant. Best is to order a Tomato Salad and one of their fabulous Pizzas. Book well in advance as it's always very full. The interior is very simple but you feel like being in Italy.
