We visited Riebeeck Kasteel and went to Mama Cucina for lunch. The restaurant was rather busy but we still received excellent service and pizza of the highest quality.

We stopped going to Riebeek Kasteel for a while, because there never seemed to be anywhere decent to eat. If you're going to drive for more than an hour to get somewhere, it needs to be worth your while. Being vegetarian, finding a nice place to eat is always a bit of a challenge anyway. Reading the reviews, we thought... More

Salads were large portions and very good. Pizza was good. Soup was very good too. Good wine selection. Happy and fun with good attentive service. Was warm on a cool evening and walking distance from most places in town. Definitely a must visit for a meal if overnighting in Riebeeck Kasteel.

Good ambiance but unfortunately limited menu for South African choices. Expected more pasta options from an Italian restaurant

For me, food, service and atmosphere are the three main aspects when reviewing a restaurant. With Mama Cucina we were initially very impressed and looked forward to a wonderful culinary experience in an obviously interesting eatery. Service was friendly and efficient and the enjoyable drinks soon arrived. However, it soon became apparent that our waiter was ‘discussing’ my wife and... More

I had a good time, food was great, service was good. The Atmosphere was exactly what you would expect from a friendly small town. There was nothing i didn't like except that one day i got there hoping to get breakfast but was told they don't serve breakfast, yet i saw two tables of people sitting in front having coffee...

We arrived without a booking for our anniversary dinner on the recommendation of a friend, and even tho the restaurant was fully booked, we were given a very nice table. The food was good. Especially the caprese salad which we gobbled up so quickly even the waiter was surprised. Perhaps I should have gone for one of the reknowned pizzas... More

We had a table of eight on a Sunday night. Though the restaurant also had a table of 40 for the same night next to us, the service and food was fabulous. The salads all fresh and varied. The Pizzas all different and the vegetarians in the group were well catered for with pastas.
