Love the Pizza, a great selection and other awesome dishes. A little cramped due to its popularity. Wish they had one in Hout Bay.

We were staying in the area and wanted a break from the typical touristy restaurants in Cape Town, so our guest house owner recommended Bacinis and what a good recommendation it was. Standard, but well cooked pasta and pizza and a friendly local atmosphere!

Great atmosphere, fantastic food and good hang out on a summers day. If you are looking for Italian home cooking in Cape Town, Bucini's is an institution you have to visit.

A nice place for a laid back meal. Not fancy but food is good & not over priced. We had beef scallops & they were really delicious...a generous serving too. Staff could have been friendlier but they were okay & we had a good evening.

Established in 1990, we arrived in Cape Town in 1995. All dishes well served giving you the hearty feel. Whether it is the first time you visit or if you one of our own, we will look after you like part of the “Familia”. Service comes with a smile. Our venue offers a space, full of life, and friendly atmosphere, with outside areas accommodating 100 people and also an inside area for the Cozy Winter nights with seating for 100 people. Be part of memories that are made, patrons that cheer with the sound of glass clinking, garlic aromas from Papa’s recipes and the wooden oven that uses it’s flames to softly touch all ingredients, and magically bring to you food that will make your taste buds feel in Paradise. Round off your evening by sitting with us, and share our amore for “la Vita”.
