“Good pizza but becoming rather expensive”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Its one of the only decent restaurants in the Rondebosch area so a big favourite amongst those in the Southern Suburbs. The pizza is really good with a crunchy base as a result of the wood fired oven they use and the pasta is rather tasty.

The only criticism i have is that the pricing is becoming more expensive than Col'cacchios (Cavendish - around 5min away) and honestly, if I have to pay R90-R100 for a bacon, avo and garlic pizza - I'd rather get a Col'cacchios slow roasted lamb pizza with basil pesto mayo, (i.e designer pizza) for the same price.

“The best pizza ever”
Reviewed January 29, 2014 via mobile

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.

“Excellent Pizza and great value for money”
Reviewed November 24, 2013 via mobile

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 !

“Consistent and value for money”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

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
