Pasta & pizza restaurant; looks like nothing from the outside; inside decor is simple with mix & match style plain wooden furniture but don't worry, you're about to enjoy the pizza experience of a lifetime......friendly & efficient staff; extensive menu featuring literally dozens of different combinations, most of which you'll have never considered combining. Thin based pizzas with thick layer of filling cooked to perfection in wood fired pizza oven. All prepared to order & well priced. Good selection of pastas although we didn't sample any if these. Choice of about 3 "old favorite" deserts; wine list; Mojo served in jam jars (I kid you not!!) & good selection of draft & bottled beers. I will definitely go back.

It's our "local". Great pizza, kid friendly and a good attitude towards corkage, a bottle between two make it a real pleasure to dine at, summer or winter. Waiting staff are student types that are clearly intelligent and attentive. Highly recommended informal spot !

I've been dining here on and off for 12 years and it's still the same group of guys that run and own it - always friendly and the pizzas are consistently good and tasty. You can either sit inside or in the garden at the back on a warm evening. The pizzas are a thin crust with generous toppings

This is my favourite place to go for pizza in Cape Town. The restaurant is tucked away in an old house behind the Seven Eleven, and after a long day it feels more like arriving at a friend's place than at a restaurant. As everyone else has said, the pizza is consistently delicious. Most Capetonians (including myself) seem to favour the Porcopeppa, usually with added avocado. Pizzas are around R80-R100 each, and they have free corkage so we often take our own wine. They don't take reservations, but we have rarely had to queue for a table for more than a few minutes. This is really one of the best places in Cape Town to relax and eat great food.
