I had pasta at Posticino and the service was friendly and fast, even though they were busy during dinner rush hour. The food was great and I love the character of the place.

We had the pasta, and it was good, although the portions were pretty average. The service stands out in Cape Town, excellent service which seems to be a bit of a rarity for some reason. The waitress and staff were very nice.

As frequent visitors to Italy, we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza and pasta at this thriving restaurant. Excellent ravioli, good wine at very reasonable prices

Posticino offers the best pasta and especially pizza in the hole Cape Town. Good staff and quick service. Totally worth a visit!

On a warm night, the patio is packed and it was quite nice. Pizza's are done very, very well. Very nice thin crust pizza with perfect crust. They do this very well. We also enjoyed both pastas we ordered, but the pizza is the star...More

Decent atmosphere, ok food, terrible service (waitress forgot parts of my order twice) and long delays to get anything (including the bill). Surprising that they wouldn’t even make garlic bread. Waiters seem overstretched and to forget parts of your order twice takes some incompetence IMHO...

Such a disappointment as it was recommended but the number of people squeezed into a restaurant was shocking. Food was average and service very poor. Definitely not a place to try.

A great place for a really nice Italian if staying in Sea Point. The welcome is warm, service great even on busy nights and the food is excellent.
