We waited and waited and waited; food was made for take away orders. After 90 minutes when we had to rush off to our movie food finally arrived. Not great and won’t be back.

This is really ,really good iItalian (South African)food. We were staying just across the road and visited here after a long day out and about. For a Monday night in SA winter it was packed - one empty table and not for long. The locals...know about this place, The food choices were good, the quality was excellent, good wine range,and overall superb value when visiting from Scotland. Well worth a visit if visiting Cape Town, forget the Waterfront, jump in an UBER.More

Absolutely loved this restaurant! Everything was delicious. They give you a complimentary bruschetta when you arrive that is super flavorful. The pasta was amazing! I’ve eaten pasta everywhere, even in Italy, but this is the first place where the pasta reminded me of my late...nonna (who made the BEST pasta ever!), so I’m very happy. My new favorite restaurant in Cape Town!More

Fantastic variety and spread of food offered. The location was very accessible and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Their knowledge of their teas was impressive and advised on the type of teas to maximise customer experience. The sweets were so amazing and presented...in such an amazing way you would want to just eat them all. For the price you pay, the quality and quantity are a steal! A must to do in cape townMore
