Description: From the boot shaped peninsula, we are proud to bring you the flavours from our ancestors offering you a selection of Pizza, Pasta and Salads and more, complementing this little corner of Italy. Established in 1990, we arrived in Cape Town in 1995. All dishes well served giving you the hearty feel. Whether it is the first time you visit or if you one of our own, we will look after you like part of the “Familia”. Service comes with a smile. Our venue offers a space, full of life, and friendly atmosphere, with outside areas accommodating 100 people and also an inside area for the Cozy Winter nights with seating for 100 people. Be part of memories that are made, patrons that cheer with the sound of glass clinking, garlic aromas from Papa’s recipes and the wooden oven that uses it’s flames to softly touch all ingredients, and magically bring to you food that will make your taste buds feel in Paradise. Round off your evening by sitting with us, and share our amore for “la Vita”.

“perhaps we should have had pizza not pasta”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B and was the only disappointment we had while staying there. We hadn't had any pasta in our 4 weeks in SA so thought it would be a change (plus we'd had 2 excellent pizzas & didn't want to risk being disappointed). Service was slow and not overly friendly and the pasta was stodgy and bland and the sauce overpowering. The poorest meal we had on our trip, and not the cheapest.

“Good local Italian”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Within walking distance of our hotel and obviously popular with locals as quite busy. But no problem getting a table. Good service and food at reasonable prices.

“The best pizzas in Cape Town”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

If ou are looking for down to earth surroundings, one where you can just be yourself but still enjoy great food then this is definitely the place to visit. Amazing pizzas to eat ' in' or to ' take home ' good selection of wines and lovely deserts. Would I recommend it - absolutely. Is it a place for family and friends - definitely. Try it and enjoy

“Homey Italian”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

We were browsing in the area and this seemed like a preferred place by many as it was full on a Sunday night. It is reasonable Italian food with a very relaxed atmosphere. It is more of a convenient place to have quick pizza than a place to go out and experience.
