“Very nice, Tasty too”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

Very nice food, excellent service, good wine. A little cramped but the friendly atmosphere more than made up for that.

“Big Italian disappointment”
Reviewed June 2, 2014

We had dinner at the Postichino last month. Food was not impressive at all. Every pasta what we order was oily. Lasagna was way too rich and oily.
Service was very good, waiters know theirs products and specials. But it does not make up for food.

“Reasonable South African style Italian restaurant”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

We arrived on a Tuesday evening without having made a booking, and was taken to a table of our choice immediately. After receiving the menu's the service deteriorated a little as our waitresses was also serving a big group next to us. Previously we had pizza here and it was very good. We had an arrabiata pasta, which was nice but with far too much sauce. However we accept that most guests will enjoy that. We also had an antipasto, quite a small portion for a main meal. We had to remind our waiter to bring the bread.Only pita bread was available - it would have been nice to have had some good italian bread. Overall the food and the service were good, but certainly not a great Italian experience and not the best Italian restaurant by far. Nice place to go to without prior arrangement and just for a quick bite, but we would stick to pizza & salads.

“Best Italian by far”
Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

Posticino is definitely a lovely Italian restaurant that I will revisit. The food is fantastic. Pizzas to die for. The spaghetti meatballs were also a treat. Our waiter, Callin, was very friendly and efficient. The manager/owner was also friendly and took interest to ensure that we were looked after.

“Best in Sea Point and Cape Town”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

We have been visiting this place for years and consistently alwsys got fresh tasty food with amazing service. You can expect a bit of a wait when the place is full but then its expected and well worth waiting for. Jack the manager is amazing and always welcomes us with fantastic personal attention. The pizza is thincrusted and just perfect. A great family favourite. I love the lasagne and highly recommend it.
