We spotted this place looking for something to eat one night in Knysna. Although it was packed they still found a table for us and service was a little slow but the food was great.

Some of the best ossobuco ever here. Better than most even in Italy. Tagliatelle also quite good.

Gennaro might be forgiven for serving pasta as a side dish, in the same plate with meat. This, of course, would be a criminal offence in Italy but abroad it seems to catch favor. No fear: just as for potatoes or salad with your meat.

It is a noisy and very busy place, so don't come here for a romantic dinner to propose your girlfriend. But you are sure to have a good time and eat well if you go out with your friends for a good laugh.

Very limited choice of wines, it could easily be improved.

We popped in to Cafe Marios during our honeymoon after having eaten out every night for the previous week and needing a simple evening of pizza. It is a very lively and jovial place and the pizzas were fantastic - thin crusts and lots of filling. It was uncomplicated and the service was efficient.

This is a warm and friendly restaurant with good service. Details to wine service were also attended to. Food was good and atmosphere warm and relaxed. A great place to chill....
