Really phenomenal Italian fare. Authentic dishes prepared expertly. Our only problem was that between three we could only order four dishes and had to take take aways, which is a nice problem to have, all this means however is we get to go back until we have tried it all.

Amazing food and service, an absolute must to visit if you are in Somerset West, but also worth a trip from Cape Town. The pizza is very high quality and the Menu is properly Italian. The cheese is made there and it’s out of this world!!

What a Gem - I usually avoid restaurants on Wine Farms - too pretentious for me . However this gorgeous, scrumptious 😋 Cheese Boutique transported us back to Italy 🇮🇹. Unfortunately the weather prevented us from being outside but a table for 6 was laid inside waiting . 4 hours later we emerged having enjoyed Italian rustic food at its very best . Wines, Grappa, watched Pasta being made and having the most wonderful time

Despite two favourable recommendations, we were really disappointed with the food. The cured meats on the pizzas were so salty it was almost as though a whole cannister of salt had been added to the dishes. The request for crushed garlic for the table was entertained, however the taste of the garlic in oil was not very pleasant and the second bowl although a bit better, was still not pleasant tasting. Were informed that the restaurant did not have fresh garlic and uses the reconstituted garlic with oil. For an Italian inspired restaurant that seems poor. The one pizza crust was not cripsy and further detracted from enjoying the food. The area where the ladies sit and roll the pasta, is behind a glass partition, and although it makes for interesting viewing, it also provides a window to poor handling practices.

Hi, what is reconstituted garlic? Who exactly informed you about us using reconstituted garlic I can hardly even spell it. We use normal garden garlic when necessary. To serve garlic on the side is not Italian, we Italians love garlic but not that much. Pizza Napoletana is not Crispy sorry was not to your expectations. Regarding the glass partition....what window to poor handling procedures did you notice?

This was vouched for a nearby AirBnb host. The vibe was good but the food was mediocre. The great theatre of the dishing from the cheese wheel, was no foil for the poor quality of the food itself. No Gorgonzola dish (Pasta or Gnocchi) would be delivered in Italy without at least the option of a vinaigrette side salad to cut the fat in the cheese. Walnuts would always be toasted. No salad offered as a side dish. Pasta overcooked.

Dear N64,,,, Maybe in Malaysia they serve a side dish with Pasta, certainly not in Italy and I am Italian. Your comment is noted but certainly I will never ever serve a Salad 'to cut the fat in the cheese or not' next to a Pasta dish. It's absolutely not Italian to serve a side dish with Pasta. Ciao

Terrible service. Waited over an hour for 1 pizza. Eventually walked out with no food. Such a disappointment.

If you’re looking for the real deal - honest Italian fare of an excellent standard - you’ve come to the right place. And be sure to select some produce from the deli on your way out.

The view alone is worth visiting the café. Freshness is a priority at the Waterkloof winery. It all takes a little longer, but hey, there's no point in rushing around here anyway. Our omelettes were great and so was the fresh ciabatta (order them at the same time). So, when we have more time again... we'll come back :o)
