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”.

“Welcoming, friendly, fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

This is a very lovely place! It is obviously a local institution. Service is great and food is good. We had lovely pasta and pizza. The decor is overwhelmingly football focussed, and the feel is very comforting and fun. It is casual too and good value for money. One of our favourite meals during our 5 days in CT, in terms of overall atmosphere.

“Great atmosphere - good pizzas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Open on a Sunday night! Wahaaay. Always a great atmosphere, OK prices. Staff sometimes tend to pay more attention to each other than to you - actually, not all of them. I'm probably being unfair! The wine by the glass was grim (and I'm not too fussy about that) But I love the pizzas - especially Pizza Rai!

“Good and reliable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

There are many great restaurants in Cape Town. I'm sure Bacini's wouldn't claim be one of them, but it is a really good local Italian, serving very tasty pizza in a great ambience. Ideal if you are staying in the neighbourhood.
