“Genuinely Italian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

The restaurant was pretty busy on a Tuesday night, which is always encouraging. The service was helpful and friendly; the locally made mozzarella was fresh and delicious; and the veal simply melted in the mouth.

“A real Italian atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Excellent service in a friendly manner. The best pizza on the garden route in my opinion, but that is not all, a good Italian kitchen with specials which genuinely change every week. A very efficient kitchen delivers meals in good time even when very busy. Excellent wine list, a wide choice of very good house wines by the 250 ml carafe.
My favourite garden route restaurant. I eat out 3 times a week, so that says a lot.

“Why go any further,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Undoubtably the best Italian in the area, the food, presentation and ambiance is second to none.
The menu is a mixture of Italian favourites and main courses of excellence. We must go more often, Will and Anita.

“Great - no need to say more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I notice a couple of tourists had a bad experience in the reviews but we had exactly the opposite. We were warmly welcomed, served by friendly and knowledgable staff and the food was great. Really fresh ingredients lightly but perfectly cooked with full flavour combinations. Broad Italian menu. So good we bought the recipe book! Try it.

Magnifisant welcome fromDario and his family straff this evening. The food, mostly from his own farm is just beautiful. This restaurant is a must if you visit George. Enjoy!
