Stayed in a hotel nearby and wanted dinner. Decided to try something new. Steak was ok. Service was on the slow side. Will try somewhere else next time.

We needed somewhere to eat fast and without any fuss, This hit the spot and we had pizzas. They were ample, hot enough but a bit bland. Service was friendly and the South African wine was excellent. Needs more imagination.

The pizza we shared as a starter was fantastic, but if you market yourself as an italian restaurant you cannot serve over cooked pasta. The taste was excellent but that is not enough. A bit unfortunate for a place that otherwise is very nice.
