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.

I've always regarded Bacinis as one of the best, most consistent pizzas in Cape Town. My last visit was a little disappointing. The pizzas were a little bland - not bad, but not memorable either. The being said the atmosphere as always was great and...More

Been coming here for 20 years. Walked down the road to have a quiet dinner this evening, but the rude and unaccommodating staff were unwilling to assist us (finding a seat for 4 people was clearly too hard). Unfortunate when your local Italian restaurant lets...More
