Popped in for take away pizza but decided to get a table? The place was packed, but the manager made a plan and accommodated us. We ordered pizza - great thin bases, great selection of toppings. It was very busy, the service was efficient and prompt. Admittedly, it was very windy outside, so the balcony was closed, the restaurant was... More

An Italian restaurant run by real Italians- that's what I like to see. Good vibes full to the brim with happy diners all enjoying their delicious Italian food. One of the owners, Matteo went out of his way to welcome us and enquire where we were from . Will definitely go back when next in the area

Buzzing little place! We went for a quick bite, and Posticino certainly delivered!On a chilly night, sadly we couldn't sit outside to enjoy the stunning view from the deck. Management made a plan and fitted us in despite not having a booking. Service was fast and great. Pizzas were great - thin based with a fantastic selection of toppings to... More

A very nice and family friendly Italian restaurant with good pizzas and welcoming staff. They're trying a bit for a cool vibe, but without overdoing it.

We are used clients of Posticino Sea Point where I appreciate the quality of food but also the simplicity of the restaurant and dedication of the boss and his employees... In Hout Bay I find the same, no bad surprise, except that the team is younger! A perfect simple place. Spaghetti Bolognese are a must.

We enjoyed our first dinner in Hout Bay at Posticino. It was walking distance from our accommodation. When we arrived we requested a patio table and were directed to a corner table with the best view in the restaurant in my opinion. The service was good, food better and the view was breathtaking. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

I love posticino. Good Italian pizza and pasta. On top, you can enjoy the most beautiful sunset from the lovely terrace.
