One of the best pizzas in Cape Town. Neighbourly atmosphere. Good quality meals. Had delicious Aubergene Parmesan Style, lekker Pizzas and Pastas, great Panini and homemade Tiramisu. Have not tried the meat dishes yet but am looking forward to it. If you are vegetarian, you will not be disappointed.

We are so hungry and walked to this little Italian only because it meant convenience to our new flat.... well what a pleasant surprise! Great food, great service from Memory (waitress) and not expensive. I think we've found a gem and a lovely local pizza takeaway bonus x

We frequent Bella Italia in Seapoint and love it but were very disappointed when we tried this branch. The food was not nearly as good, the atmosphere was disappointing

I popped in for lunch and to work. They have been in the business for some time. There is a cross spectrum of Italian food on offer and it's exactly how you would get in a big city in Italia. They have really comfortable chairs in beautiful setting. If you sit at the indoor balcony which has big glass windows,... More

When I called to make a reservation, I was impressed to be assisted by a genuine Italian. On arrival we were impressed by the venue, the service and the food. It was quite simply delicious. We will be back.

In a suburb with many restaurants and coffee shops, our regular pizza place stands out for the best thin-crust pizzas with plenty of toppings. Takeaways are supplied timeously in the stated periods with great smiling service, and the regular "full house" seated area displays the regular high standards. Recommended!

Had a great lunch, outstanding pizza and awesome pasta. Lovely setting in the suburbs above the Cape Town CBD. Definitely worth a visit.

Bella Italia in Vredehoek has a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Mouth watering thin based pizzas and a variety of pasta among our Italian specialities. A DEFINATE MUST is a taste of our homemade Tiramisu. BUON APPETITO.
