The best Pizza place not only in town but on the Garden route. A wide range of Pizza's plus other Italian Dishes prepared as you would expect in Italy, with excellent service by very efficient staff. If you want a variation on the standard menu offering you just need to ask. Located at the Water Front in Knysna the added advantage is that you can watch the coming and going of the pleasure craft that work in and out of the harbour.

Excellent position right at the Drawbridge entrance to The Keys at Knysna Yacht Harbour. Small but accommodating. Watch the world pass by. Food carefully prepared and tasty Italian specialities. Good coffee to match. Very reasonable prices and a firm favourite.

Though one needs to fight for a table here (or be proactive and make a reservation), we were lucky to squeeze ourself in.

PIzza's were great, entourage great, staff somewhat overstrained but nonetheless very friendly and a bill that makes you smile.

Only thing slightly disappointing was the espresso that didn't taste how you would expect in an Italian cafe.

Nice spot by the water and on a hot day grateful for the big umbrellas. Good price and good food. Salads were lovely, fresh and colourful. Pizza was good and the gluten free pasta option great along with the dishes.
