Italian Eatery - Cash only or Zapper accepted We booked for 7.30 - first mistake. The place was packed and our reserved table wasn't ready. Once seated, we had to go and get wine glasses as we had brought a bottle of wine along for the occasion. Corkage reasonable at R25. Orders taken and after an hour of waiting, we... More

We moved from Sea Point into the Table View area about 2 years ago. Pity we only discovered this restaurant last night! It was BUSY on a Friday night. The decor is literally is from 1970. I had premonitions - when we got there (after I booked) it was evident they did not have a table ready. In fact quickly... More

We were in town and we're craving good Italian food, so we went to trip advisor and found this little gem. We had amazing food and a very quaint and cozy atmosphere definitely recommend the restaurant for awesome pasta and pizza.

Great pizza and pasta which could have been served in Italy. Good choices and very tasty. Only cash accepted which is the only drawback.

This is no ordinary Italian Restaurant. The pizzas and pastas are authentic Italian style. The management team are great hosts and will remember you by name. The Chef is also a Confectioner so naturally there is always a good variety of freshly made tarts and desserts. Sit inside or outside on the verandah to watch the passing parade. There is... More

Came here twice. Somewhat sceptical due to the big menue (but mainly pizza & pasta and some meat), but pizza was really nice, service friendly & quick and pasta was also good - and really good value-for-money. Note that view here (in front of a 2-lane-street) is not super nice, but if you're looking for good Italian food and not... More

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. A small family run restaurant which served delicious Italian meals. Very friendly staff and good food. What more could you want!! Will be recommending to our friends who have just moved to the area.
