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.

We arrived without a reservation. The only tables available were outside on the terrace. Unfortunately not the best Italian food I have tasted. Very attentive staff.

A very warm welcome from the owner adds to the warmth and friendliness you receive when coming to this restaurant. Essential to book as it is very popular and no wonder. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. Calamari starter was a meal in itself. The pizzas are huge, I struggled.
