Here you can taste italian typical dishes embedded amazingly in the South African one. The atmosphere is lively and the waiters are very kind. As an Italian I really suggest to go there. That's also the place to go if are a wine lover, they...have a very wide and quality selection.More

Our meal at Villa 47 was one of the highlights of our stay in Cape Town. A really nice ambiance and very pleasant and efficient staff. All that before the food which incidentally, was delicious.

Last week was the first and last time here. I asked to pay Corkage, and the waiter informed me that do not accept byo. We should have walked out then. The wine prices were a total rip off, I know as I have lived in...the winelands for 25 Years. Mark-up gone mad! I think the cheapest was about R230. I ended up paying mid R300's for a wine I enjoy, (but badly over priced). The Pork belly was tasty, but the vegetables indifferent. My wife's minute pasta dish did not warrant a R200 price tag (not seafood). Menu very overpriced. Seating uncomfortable, and drafty. Man in the suit was very busy, but the service still indifferent. Our waiter handled the situation very professionally. Sorry but this just is not Fine Dining.More

We chose Villa 47 for our first meal in Cape Town. In was in a nice area. Our first table was near screeching children so we asked to be moved. They were very nice about it and gave us a different t table right away....We had a nice bottle of wine recommended by a knowledgeable, person, he was either an owner or a manager. We had delicious pasta, tortellini and risotto. Portions were generous and filling so we skipped dessert. The table next to us had what looked like really good desserts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.More

The noise was so awful and the chairs terribly uncomfortable that we could not stay. Shame as I heard it was good.

We had a small family gathering & we choose this restaurant, an absolutely unknown venue. Well what a pleasant surprise, as you walk into this venue you are greeted by such friendly staff. The ambiance of this restaurant is something to experience it's Italy in...Cape Town. The interior is on point & it just works so well. It give you that fuzzy welcome feeling, well done guys. We placed our orders & were blown away by the presentation & taste. I had the pork belly & loved ever morsal. Loved the menu will be back to try other dishes. If you are in Cape Town looking for authentic Italian cooking, this is your place. To the management and staff thank you for a great experience & for providing an exquisite Locanda. Kind regards Ferdie LiebenbergMore

We went to Villa 47 on the March "First Thursdays" in Cape Town which is very festive with several streets closed to traffic and many galleries open. After visiting Youngbloods gallery we had dinner with friends from Scotland at Villa 47. The atmosphere was full...of life and the service and food was excellent. We definitely recommend for dinner.More

Went for dinner to the upstairs restaurant (Locanda). Lovely layout, great staff and service with tasty dishes. The breadsticks were to die for. Good for vegetarians too. I requested a modification of a special dish and the chef obliged. Lovely atmosphere too. Would recommend it.
