Great venue, open space, clean and neat. The central location makes it an easy choice if you live and work in the CBD and it's surroundings. Service was quick and friendly. Food, Devine. I highly recommend the cold cuts platter.

You know the meal is good when the conversation drops. Villa never disappoints, great service from Skylah! Well priced for the portion sizes! We had a cold meat platter to start and the Villa 47 Ragu and Ravioli, sadly we were too full for dessert...but will definitely be back for it!More

We booked this place for a group of 10. Service was wonderful. Staff very attentive and had solutions at hand, and able to handle the large group comfortably. In general, most of the food we ordered was lovely. Well prepared and presented. What I wasn’t...so fond of was the T-Bones we ordered. Though aged, and looked good on the slab before being grilled, they lacked taste. Perhaps we chose wrong. Worth a shot.More

Maitre-D was rude and dismissive. He refused to serve us red wine at room temperature, insisting that it should be served chilled. As customers, we have our preferences and want to enjoy our meal then have an arrogant manager tell us how things should be...done. Staff are also not well-informed about the menu or specials either, as they couldn’t answer basic questions…the food was average. Considering the price, we expected better. Disappointed, wont return.More

Stopped in at Villa 47 on a Thursday night, it was pretty packed which is always a good sign. Service was prompt, the starters were good, however our mains of steak which were ordered medium rare were cooked within an inch of their life. Tough,...chewy and rather inedible. I complained to the waitress who just apologized. I probably shouldn't have ordered a steak in an Italian restaurant but it was at the waitresses suggestion, maybe the pasta is better...More

We really enjoyed our visit here. We were staying at the waterfront and decided to travel the short distance to Villa 47 and it was worth it. The ambience is great and we had a spacious table and didn't feel like we were too close...to other diners. The menu is extensive and we particularly enjoyed the prawns and lamb. The drinks menu was also extensive and they had delicious wines and cocktails. Service was super friendly. Would really recommend!More

Yup! delicious Italian food in the heart of Cape Town. The service was great. The food was delicious and came in huge portions. Definitely split/share your dishes. The wine compliments the food perfectly. Sit out doors if available.

We met a couple of friends at Villa 47 for lunch on Saturday 2 October It was cold and wet in CT but Villa 47 was ‘cooking’. We ordered the risotto, parmigiana de melanzane, lasagne and seafood ravioli. Every meal was packed with flavour, well...executed and delicious. We could have been in a top restaurant in Rome. We will certainly be back!!More
