We had lunch here, on a Tuesday, and they were quite busy. The staff are friendly - the pizza good and the lasagna excellent. There is a specials blackboard... plenty of pasta dishes to choose from.

On a regular weeknight, this place quickly fills up, and you soon understand why: Hearty Italian food, well-prepared, and served by hyper-friendly, attentive yet relaxed staff. As always in South Africa, great wine at more than reasonable prices. Great fun and great value for money!

Had dinner here. Lovely food. The beef was so tender, exacly well handled. the sidedisches match perfect. Beatiful wine. What more to say? With a Italian stile, good atmosphere, all good. But it takes its time.
