Poorly trained and rude staff. Needless to say we didn't even get to order the meal. The hassles with the drinks were quite enough to send us packing Which was probably a blessing considering the shocking service received by the waitron as well as the...manager on an over charged bill.More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here. The staff is welcoming, the dining is casual and the room spacious and attractive. The menu is broad. We shared a delicious pizza, salad and tiramisu (house specialty). The staff doesn't rush you and we met other travelers enjoying...their meal and sharing tips about their itinerary. We had a very pleasant evening here.More

What a disappointment. Extortionate prices for mediocre food. Service is lackadaisical and very inapt. Wouldn't recommend - rather have a look at Fat Fish, Nineteen 89 or The Palms etc.

What an underwhelming experience we had. We were seated quickly but the drinks took ages to arrive as did the food. The restaurant wasn’t busy but it seemed they were more interested in getting takeaway pizzas out than serving customers. When the food did arrive...it wasn’t anything special apart from the homemade pasta starter. The service was so slow and they mixed our bill up with other guests. Overall not a good experience.More

Five of us went for a meal and four of us had finished before the fifth came out. Three of the five meals were not particularly good. The manager was not halpful and just walked away from the problem.

Honestly the service was the best we have received in Plett and MASSIVE shout-out to Edgar Dima who was our fabulous waiter. The food was much better than expected only gripe was the pasta was a little overcooked but still tasty. But wow, Edgar made...our evening and day! He deserves a raise! Thanks Edgar ❤️More

We waited almost an hour for our food only to have it arrive cold and with one pizza order missing a topping. The service was awful. Our waitress kept avoiding us when we tried to get her attention. She did not even ask us if...we wanted more drinks while we waited (we had long since finished our first). Her thumb was on my pizza as she delivered it. She rolled her eyes at us as she walked away after we expressed our dissatisfaction. A second drink was plonked down in the can with no ice or fresh glass (although it was a different beverage!). And the kicker: a hair was baked into the cheese on my sister’s pizza. The manager did agree to take that pizza off the bill, but it still took another 20 minutes to get the bill sorted (the first version that arrived had someone else’s dishes added to it!) and get out of there. I get it. It’s the season. But then staff your restaurant appropriately or limit your numbers. And train your staff! Seeing other reviews now, it also does not appear to be a seasonal Issue. This restaurant has such potential and used to be amazing. What a disappointment that it is being run so shoddily.More

On the last night of our amazing holiday in Plett, we decided to have a family meal at Cornuti. We sat down and ordered our food, after about an hour we were informed that there were no kitchen staff, they had gone on strike. Management...were AWOL, waiters running around like headless chickens screaming at each other... and no food coming out of the kitchen. No one came to explain what was going on, we heard from another person at another table. We had to get up and leave with no dinner. My parents in law who live in Plett claim this was not the first time that they have had to walk out of Cornuti with no food!More

Booked two months in advance for Christmas lunch for a family of 10. Requested a table specifically next to the window. Booking was confirmed via email on the 24th. On arrival no one was aware of the booking. The Barman that was on duty at...the door was rude and not helpful at all, very irritated with us. We had to settle for a makeshift table at the back. Our waiter was outright arrogant and rude. We ordered cocktails, the Margarita was R120 and it definitely comes out of a box. Olive oil on the table was most definitely not olive oil. Some other tasteless oil substitute. Focaccia bread was dry and tasteless. Main meals were ok. Most of the deserts on the menu were not available. We lodged a complaint via email, but needless to say they didn’t even bother to answer. Will take my money somewhere else for our next Christmas Lunch.More

Went for dinner at 7, waited for an hour for a table and only received one once another customer complained on our behalf due to many other groups getting tables before us. Experienced terrible service and then waited another 1 hour and a half for...our food to be brought to us. When received, mostly was good but 2 of us had food (which did not say that they had chilies nor any spices) which was so spicy that it became inedible and we both had to get milk due to the heat of it.More

After waiting close to an hour for our Pizzas on Thursday night - we could sense the tension in the room as we were obviously not the only ones having endured a far longer than acceptable wait. The server assured us our food was almost...ready but when I went to the kitchen myself to investigate our food was nowhere in sight. A gentleman who identified himself as the manager intervened and promised his urgent attention. I’ve been in the hospitality business myself and a manager wearing a peaked cap and hoodie over his head hardly inspires confidence. Nonetheless, our pizzas eventually arrived. Completely bland and uninspiring. One of which was supposed to be Gorgonzola which was sadly lacking any Gorgonzola at all! Our server was at a loss as she indicated that all waiting staff were reliant on tips and that they could not pressure the kitchen for service. My impression is that the staff including managers are overwhelmed, the restaurant takes on more than it can cope with (apart from seated service, they do takeout and Uber type delivery), it’s a matter of pot luck when the meal arrives and if it even has the correct ingredients. Outside of a busy service I can imagine the food is pretty good - but ours wasn’t. The wine list is comprehensive if more than a little expensive for local tastes. And it’s locals that keep places like this running out of season. Our best advice is NOT to go on a Thursday when they run specials.More
