“Great Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

A good choice for a casual dinner, with excellent meat and vegetarian choices at keen prices even by S African standards. A young crowd so older diners could find it a bit noisy. Why Da Vinci's? You can draw on the paper tablecloths while waiting.

“NOT a real Italian - give this place a miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I came here for dinner on a Friday night.

The place was busy and had a great vibrant atmosphere but the food was awful.

The pizza didn't taste homemade and wasn't authentic and the spaghetti bolognaise was straight from a tin, tons of it heaped on top of the spaghetti which didn't look appetising at all and tasted worse. My family's Italian so I know the difference.

You're supposed to be able to use the crayons to write on the tablecloth but wax crayons plus a wax tablecloth doesn't work, so that's a wasted feature.

Save your money, keep walking and go to Bacini's at the top of Kloof Street for a proper italian dining experience, that's what we did later on in our holiday.
